Martin Yale 1601 AutoFolder Paper Folding Machine Review

Martin Yale 1601 AutoFolder Paper Folding MachineAre you searching for a compact, simple and easy-to-use paper folding machine? One model you may have stumbled across is the Martin Yale 1601 AutoFolder paper folding machine (found here). Is it the right machine for you? I have used this folding machine and this is my review.

Paper folding machines are invaluable to have around when folding letters, brochures, pamphlets and other material. Martin Yale has been manufacturing folding machines and makes some of the best known models available today.

The Martin Yale 1601 Ease-Of-Use AutoFolder is a compact folding machine designed for low to medium-volume jobs. It is designed to be used with paper up to 8 ½ x 14 in size and can be used to create letter folds (C Fold), accordion folds (Z Fold), half fold, double parallel fold and a right angle fold (French Fold).

The folding trays on the 1601 AutoFolder are very easy to set up, taking just seconds. The folds are clearly marked on the tray. Simply pull out one tray, adjust it, put it back in and repeat with the second tray.

The 1601 AutoFolder has a built-in jam detection system that shuts the machine off in the event of a jam. Why is this nice? Folding machines that don’t utilize this technology will continue to run, even with the jam in place. If you aren’t around, this can potentially ruin a folding machine’s motor or cause other damage.

One really nice feature is the multi-sheet bypass slot. This slot allows you to fold up to 5 stapled sheets of paper at a time. Simply gather the paper together and manually feed it into the slot.

This folding machine is one of the most affordable available with a conveyor exit table. Conveyor exit tables keep folded paper in order. This is especially nice when folding documents that are numerically or alphabetically in order. This is a huge improvement over the exit bin that other folding machines use.

The Martin Yale 1601 AutoFolder is made in the USA, which is a rarity now days. The build quality seems to be nice and the design is compact enough to sit on just about any table or desk.

Overall I consider the 1601 to be a great folding machine for low to medium-volume use. It can be used every day and shouldn’t cause any issues.
