Formax FD 312 Desktop Paper Folding Machine Review

Formax FD 312 Paper Folding MachineDo you need a durable paper folding machine that can be used on your desk for mailing letters, folding brochures and other jobs? One model you may want to look at is the Formax FD 312 paper folding machine (found here). I have used this folding machine and this is my review.

Formax is a leading manufacturer of paper folding machines and paper folder inserters. They also manufacture a wide selection of paper shredders, bursters and other paper handling equipment.

The Formax FD 312 is compact, simple and extremely easy to use. It is about the size of a desktop printer (exact dimensions are 11.6″ L x 14″ W x 14.5″ H). It uses two folding plates to fold paper. These folding plates are manually adjusted. Setup time shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Once the folding plates are set, the rest is quick and easy.

The FD 312 is designed for light to medium volume use. While not ideal for high-volume folding jobs, it is a solid machine. The feed tray can hold up to 200 sheets of paper and it is designed to fold standard 20# paper. It cannot be used to fold card stock. It can, however, be used to fold 11 and 14-inch long paper.

You can use the Formax FD 312 to create letter folds (C fold), half folds (V fold) and accordion folds (Z fold). The folding plates are customizable, so you can use this to create your own unique folds.

The control panel is simple. There are no adjustments or LCD screens to look at. It has a green “go” button and a “red” stop button. It really is a simple “no-nonsense” folding machine.

This machine is ideal for use in schools, churches, copy centers and other businesses that need to fold brochures, letters and other material. The construction is exceptional, so you shouldn’t experience any quirks or issues with it.

I personally like this folding machine and recommend it. Keep in mind, however, that it is not designed for heavy-volume usage.
