Formax FD 402P1 Paper Jogger Review

Monday, March 28th, 2011

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.

Lassco LJ-4 11″ x 17″ Electric Paper Jogger Review

Lassco LJ-4 Electric 11" x 14" Paper JoggerAre you in need of a paper jogger, but need something that can handle anything from business cards up to 11″ x 17″ paper? If so, you may want to consider the Lassco LJ-4 electric paper jogger (found here). This jogger is ideal for use with larger paper. This is my review.

Lassco-Wizer manufactures a wide variety of electric paper joggers. These paper joggers are generally considered to be some of the best on the market. This includes standard letter-size joggers, multi-bin joggers and much more.

The LJ-4 paper jogger is in a class of its own. This is because not only can it job letter size 8 ½” x 11″ paper, but it can also jog an entire ream of 11″ x 17″ paper. Most joggers cannot do this without some sort of assistance. This is due to the size of the jogging table.

If you look at the table, you will notice that it is tilted at about a 45 degree angle. This is ideal for keeping larger paper in place. The size of the jogging table is also large enough to handle the longer paper. The table itself measures in at 17″ x 17″.

You will notice in the picture that the table has two semi-circles cut out of it. This has been done for your convenience. Once an 11″ x 17″ stack of paper has been jogged, the semi-circle cutout makes it extremely easy to grab the jogged paper and remove it from the machine.

Just because the LJ-4 has a large jogging table doesn’t mean it can’t jog smaller documents. This jogger will easily jog smaller documents, letter-size paper and much more.

The motor on the LJ-4 is tough, as is the case with all Lassco paper joggers. The motor on this jogger operates on a 115 volt current at 60 hz / 2.2 amps. The motor vibrates at a speed of 1550 revolutions per minute (RPM).

Once you place a stack of paper in the LJ-4, the paper is jogged and squared up in just seconds. This is especially ideal for printing presses, copy shops and other businesses that handles stacks and reams of paper on a daily basis.

The construction on the LJ-4 is exceptional. I rate the LJ-4 a 5 out or 5. Few paper joggers, especially in this size, come close to this quality.

Lassco LJ-2 Electric Paper Jogger Review

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Lassco LJ-2 Electric Paper JoggerAre you looking for a paper jogger that will handle paper, letters and other documents? If so, you may want to consider looking at the Lassco LJ-2 electric paper jogger (found here). This is my review.

Paper joggers do such a simple process, yet remain so important when it comes to copying, cutting, binding and more. I used a paper jogger just yesterday to help align paper that came off a digital duplicating machine prior to cutting the paper down on a stack paper cutter. What would have taken me a minute or two took maybe 10 seconds on a paper jogger.

The Lassco LJ-2 is one of our most popular paper joggers, right along side the Model 400 paper jogger. This is because the LJ-2 is simple, compact and very easy to use. It can be placed on pretty much any table or counter. You will find the LJ-2 in print shops, mail rooms, copy centers and more.

The LJ-2 paper jogger runs on electricity, (150 volts / 60 hz / 2.2 amps). A motor inside the machine causes the LJ-2 to quickly vibrate, helping to align jumbled and disorganized paper. The motor runs at 1550 RPMs per minute. This is pretty fast and extremely accurate.

The opening on the Lassco LJ-2 is big enough to handle an entire ream of 8 ½ x 11-inch copy paper or half a ream of 11 x 17-inch paper. It can also be used to jog checks, envelopes, brochures and other literature.

If you bind books, cut paper, staple paper or copy paper on daily basis, you should seriously consider using a paper jogger. Prior to working at ABC Office (about 10 years ago), I had no idea what a paper jogger was. Now I can’t imagine working with paper handling machines and not having a jogger on hand.

I consider the build quality of the LJ-2 to be exceptional. This should come as no surprise. Lassco-Wizer makes some of the best-quality office machines out there. If you need a paper jogger, this is definitely one of the models that I would personally recommend.
