Video of the 1711 Folding Machine by Martin Yale
The Martin Yale 1711 Electronic Ease-of-Use Autofolder offers some of the latest folding technology available. Forget the hassle of manually configuring your fold plates and fold settings, simply press a few buttons, and the Martin Yale 1711 will automatically configure the fold plates, feed and fold your paper. No need to fan your documents before placing them into the feed tray, all you have to do is put your paper in and watch as it folds up to 9,000 sheets per hour. With 6 different fold types to choose from, including letter, half, z-fold, double parallel, and gate, the 1711's electronic controls automatically pre-set letter, legal, and A4 paper sizes.
The paper tray, able to hold up to 150 sheets simultaneously, allows for large folding jobs to be completed quickly. The 1711 automatic folder also features an automatic turn-off sensor that cuts power to the motor once the feed tray is empty of any paper, as well as a conveyor exit table that makes collecting all of your folded documents convenient. The auto jam detect sensor also keeps the 1711 from jamming itself further in the unlikely event of a paper jam, and alerts the user to when a jam has occurred.
Thanks to the enhanced precision skew adjustment, you don't have to worry about your folds coming out incorrectly. The 1711 grants the user easy access to the rollers and offers improved stacking wheels and self-centering paper guides. These features just add to the 1711's simple operation. The conveyor exit table neatly stacks your finished documents for your convenience. Ideal for large mailrooms, associations, and offices, the Martin Yale 1711 proves reliable, user-friendly, and versatile.
What we think...
To get a folder with automated fold plates for just a bit over $1k is extraordinary. In fact, it's so extraordinary, that it made us a bit skeptical at first. The truth is though, that this is a really good folder. We do a lot of testing and research before recommending a product. After some stress testing by our technicians we were comfortable with the 1711, but the true story came when we ran some customer service reports. We've been extremely impressed by the nominal failure rate and return rate on this model. Traditionally, a true automatically adjusting folder would cost more than twice the price of the 1711. As much as we'd love to sell folders that cost over twice the price, we'd recommend taking a hard look at the 1711, because it can do 90% of what the larger auto folders can do. There are a few limitations to this folder model, but if you're doing regular copy paper and your volume is somewhat low, the 1711 is likely going to be the best automatic folder for you.
What we don't like: The 1711 is a great folder, but there are a few reasons you'd want something bigger, such as the 2051. One reason would be larger paper. The 1711 only handles up to legal size (11"x 14") paper. If you need to do 11x17 and need an automatic folder, the 2051 is your best bet (1217a & 1812 are manual adjustment folder options that do 11x17 paper). One feature we'd really like to see is a better stacking system. We don't see this as a huge deal, but a longer stacker/conveyor/tray would certainly keep the folded paper a bit neater with less chance of nesting. That being said, if you leave some space on the table behind the machine, we've found the paper doesn't stack too poorly on it's own. The more space you leave, the more paper can stack on the table, and the more hands free the folder becomes.
What we do like: The first thing would have to be the price. For the money, there is really no other folding machine on the market that has automatic fold plates. Beyond that, this isn't just a "cheap" folding machine. This model actually competes with folders that are way more expensive, and has a solid track record too. Another feature that we really like is the manual bypass. This "bypass" allows user to hand feed multiple sheets of paper at once. This is a feature that is actually really rare in the folding machine market. Although manual sheet feeders require a little technique, we find that they are a popular feature with our customers. While most manufacturers have given up on the manual feed option, we're glad to see that Martin Yale still offers this in the 1711.
