MBM 307A Programmable Paper Folding Machine Review

MBM 307A Programmable Paper Folding MachineIf you’re a big fan of the popular MBM 207M paper folding machine, chances are pretty good you’re going to love the MBM 307A programmable paper folding machine (found here). Build using a similar design, the 307A is one of the most popular automatic letter folding machines on the market. Popularity isn’t always everything though. So is this machine worth buying? This is my review.

To begin with, MBM is one of the leading manufacturers of high-end office equipment around. They make the Destroyit paper shredder line and the very popular Triumph and Kutrimmer lines of paper cutters. In line with their other products, the MBM paper folding machines have become a classic.

The MBM 307A, first and foremost, features an all-metal build. The machine has some heft to it (weighing in at 82 pounds shipped). The build quality becomes quite apparent once you start using it. This machine is built for the long haul. I don’t foresee anyone having issues with this machine.

A total of three friction wheels and two folding plates help create the folds. The feed tray holds up to 450 sheets of standard copy paper. Once on, the machine pulls a sheet off the stack and bounces it off of those two folding plates, causing the paper to be folded between the internal rollers. The end result is a clean, crisp and accurate fold.

The 307A is an automatic folding machine that has been pre-programmed with 6 common folds. This means setting up the 307A will take just seconds. Simply select the fold you want and the folding plates will self adjust themselves. It is that easy. Once set, folding is as easy as pressing the “start” button.

While this folding machine can create 6 common folds, including a letter and accordion fold, it can also be used to create custom folds. Simply make fine-tuned adjustments on the control panel. Up to 18 custom folds can be stored in the built-in memory. This machine can even handle the elusive cross fold (aka French fold).

The MBM 307A boasts some pretty impressive features. This includes the ability to fold paper as thin as 12 lbs up to 80 lbs card stock. It is also able to handle paper from 3 1/2″ x 5″ to 11″ x 17″ in size. The motor runs at a speed of about 11,520 sheets per hour. A built-in LED screen keeps count of folded sheets. An optional perforator and scoring wheel can be added in the factory upon request.

The exit tray uses a conveyor style system. This means as the paper is ejected from the folding machine, it is collected by a moving conveyor. This helps to keep the paper neat and organized. A conveyor exit tray is a must-have feature for those folding invoices, bills and other paper that needs to be kept in alphanumerical order.

Overall the MBM 307A automatic programmable tabletop folding machine is an impressive piece of engineering and is a great machine to use in just about any businesses, church, school or other organization. I personally love this machine and highly recommend it for medium to higher-volume jobs.
