Formax FD 402P1 Paper Jogger Review

Formax FD 402P1 Paper JoggerDo you print hundreds to thousands of documents a day? Do you bind hundreds of books, cut thousands of sheets of paper per day or letter fold paper for mailing purposes. If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be in need of a paper jogger. One great model you should consider is the Formax FD 402P1 paper jogger (found here). This is my review.

As paper leaves a printer or copy machine, the sheets are often jumbled and disorganized. If for any reason you have to feed this paper into another machine, cut it or even bind it, you will need to jog the paper back into a manageable stack. This is the reason paper joggers exist and they can save literally minutes of time over manually jogging paper. Minutes quickly become hours when you are handling large volumes of paper. Joggers are also ideal for cutting down and eliminating static electricity.

Formax, a leading manufacturer of folding machines, pressure sealers, paper shredders and other office equipment, currently manufactures several different paper jogging machines. All of their paper jogging machines are designed for commercial, continuous and daily use.

The FD 402P1 is an angled paper jogger designed for handling paper up to 11″ x 17″ in size. While it can be used with larger paper, it can also easily be used with smaller 8 ½” x 11″ paper and many other sizes.

The motor on the FD 402P1 is powerful, making it possible to jog paper in just seconds. A large knob, located on the front of the machine, allows you to adjust the intensity of the motor. At maximum speed, the motor shakes at 4,000 vibrations per minute. This makes it easy to adjust the Formax FD 402P1 to work with whatever type of paper you are jogging. This can be card stock, copy paper, glossy paper, coated documents and more.

Paper tends to create a lot of dust. Dust accumulation can cause all sorts of problems with machinery such as collators, paper folding machines, pressure sealers and more. The FD 402P1 actually has slotted clean-outs that allow dust to be removed from stacks of paper during the jogging process.

Weighing in at 28 pounds, the FD 402P1 is an extremely durable machine, however, it is light enough to be used on most desks, tables and surfaces. As far as joggers are concerned, it is relatively quiet.

I have to say that the build quality on the FD 402P1 is exceptional. It should be able to keep up with the most laborious and rigorous jobs thrown at it.
