Friday, September 10th, 2010

Formax FD 150 Cut Sheet Document & Check SignerAre you looking for a fast and accurate way to sign checks and documents on a massive scale? One machine you may want to consider using is the Formax FD 150 cut sheet check and document signer (found here). This is my review.

In case you are not familiar with Formax, they are one of the best-known manufacturers of high-end office equipment in the United States. Their products include folding machines, envelope inserters, bursters, shredders and more. Their products are considered to be some of the best-built and many of them are made in the USA.

The Formax FD 150 check and document signer is an example of an American-made product. This machine is our highest-end document signer. It is primarily used to sign checks, but can also be used to endorse documents, and put logos / seals on cut-sheet documents.

This machine is very easy to set up and use. Four programmable job settings make it easy to set this machine up for frequent jobs. You will find the Formax FD 150 in a wide variety of government facilities, businesses, schools and more. It is especially popular for payroll purposes.

The FD 150 is designed to be used with cut-sheet paper. Cut-sheet paper is the most commonly used type of paper found in offices today. This usually consists of 8 ½ x 11-inch sheets.

When compared to signing documents by hand, the FD 150 is like a supersonic jet. It is hundreds of times faster than manually signing documents. It is available with monochrome, tri-color and ultraviolet ink (for added security).

The machine itself is secured under lock and key to protect the signature plates. It includes both a resettable and non-resettable counters for maximum audit capability.

The Formax FD 150 runs at a speed of up to 300 documents per minute. The feed tray can hold up to 200 sheets of paper. Paper can range in size from 2.75 to 14-inches wide and 3 to 14-inches long.

This document signer weighs in at 40 pounds. That is pretty light considering what the FD 150 does. It is compact enough, and light enough, to be used on most tables, desks and other surfaces.

I consider the Formax FD 150 to be a great machine. It is perfect for medium to high-volume document signing jobs. We have a great relationship with Formax and have our own Service Department. This means we can provide you with parts, service and support.

Martin Yale 930A Continuous Form Check Signer Review

Martin Yale 930A Continuous Form Check SignerDoes your business or organization need an effective solution for document and check signing operations? If so, one model you may want to consider using is the Martin Yale 930A continuous form check signer (found here). I have used this check signer and this is my review.

Check and document signers make life much easier, especially when it comes to signing thousands of documents, checks and other material. Check signers are easy to set up and can be run throughout the day without any issues.

The Martin Yale 930A continuous form check signer can be used to sign a variety of material, as long as it falls within a 5 ½-inches to 16 ½-inches wide or 3 ½-inches or 7-inches long range. The motor runs at a speed of 240 documents per hour. This means the Martin Yale 930A is both fast and versatile.

As previously mentioned, the 930A is a continuous form document signer. This means it can only be used with continuous form paper. Continuous form paper has perforated side margins with tiny 1/8-inch (approx) holes. These side holes help printers feed the paper and also help this check signer feed paper. This type of paper is still widely used by many businesses and government agencies.

The 930A check signer uses signature plates to sign the documents. These signature plates are rounded, allowing them to be mounted to a motor-powered cylinder. This cylinder spins, allowing the plates to be inked and sign the document. The entire process is an engineering feet and works very well.

The signature plates are very easy to remove and change out. Don’t worry about unauthorized access. The signature plates are inaccessible and can only be retrieved by opening the cover with a key. You can use single and double signature plates with the 930A.

The 930A includes a black ink roller and can be used with an optional tri-ink roller. These ink rollers are very easy to access and change. These signature plates can sign paper anywhere from 14# to 125# thick.

The Martin Yale 930A has been around for over a decade and is a time tested machine. It is considered by many to be one of the best continuous form check signers available today. I have used this check signer and can vouch for the build quality and the ease-of-use.

If you need a document signer, but don’t need a continuous form check signer, we also carry a wide selection of cut sheet check signers. Cut sheet paper is “free” paper like you use in a copy machine or printer.
