MBM 208J Product Description
The 208J manual friction feed folder is one of MBMs most popular folders. This model has taken the place of the now retired 207M. It comes with many of the same loved specifications as the 207M but also adds a few new features that customers love. The 208J boasts a simple setup and clear, easy to read fold plate graphics and measurements to ensure accurate folds every single time. This folder can accurately fold half, letter, z-fold, double parallel, fold-out, gate and cross folds with ease, among a variety of other custom folds. The 208J also allows for a full ream of 500 sheets of paper, between 12 and 80 lbs., to be inserted into the load tray. Just like its predecessor, the 208J comes with a Test option to allow two sheets of your material to be run through the machine, ensuring that the fold will work for you on your paper size and weight. The paper is loaded and unloaded on the same side, and comes standard with an extended exit tray to ensure neat stacking of folded materials.
This model was designed with easy customer use in mind. It features quick release rollers which allow regular maintenance and cleaning to be achieved easily. Its also built with high quality heavy duty steel making it very durable. The top of the 208J has a control panel featuring a four digit LED counter with addition and subtraction functions. This control panel allows the user to set number of papers to be folded and allows you to engage one of the special folding modes. These modes are:
Noise Reduction Mode: Noise Reduction Mode allows the user to operate the folder and a quiet level. The perfect solution for offices that may be tight on space, and employees have to work in the same room as the folder.
Thick Paper Mode: Thick Paper Mode allows for users to fold paper up to 80 lbs in weight with no discrepancy in folding quality.
Quick Mode: Some users like to call it Turbo Mode because its so fast. This setting allows for paper to be folded at an astonishing 14,400 sheets per hour.
With so many old, loved features from the 207M carried over to this machine, its safe to say the 208J will be the go-to friction feed folder for small to medium sized batches.
