Description of the Formax FD 386 Tabletop Paper Folder

The Formax FD 386 tabletop office paper folder boasts extremely easy set up and has a fast folding speed of up to 20,100 sheets per hour. Memory capacity is high; there are 18 pre-programmed folds, and another 25 custom folds are stored. Choosing a fold pattern is just one touch away, with the fully automated fold plates. 500 sheets is the maximum tray capacity, and this 11 x 17 paper folder can fold those 500 sheets in as fast as 2 minutes.

The side guides, skew adjustments and modifiable stacker wheels make folding and adjustment very manageable. They also ensure correct loading and even, square feeding of paper into the folder. Paper fanning is unnecessary, with the useful drop-in feed system. Furthermore, the FD 386 automatic tabletop document folder does not make a lot of noise, because the fold plates are completely enclosed and insulated. This Formax paper folder could not be any faster or easier to set up.


  • Speed control is variable.
  • High memory capacity; 18 pre-programmed folds, and 25 custom folds stored.
