1611 Paper Folding Machine by Martin Yale

This model can fold up to five stapled sheets at a time.

Do you need to fold multiple sheets of paper that are stapled together? This is a feature that most paper folding machines cannot do. But not to worry, there are a few models out there that can fold stapled sheets.

This is one of the most common questions we are asked at ABC Office. Unfortunately, there are some who assume most paper folders can do this special task. They soon learn the paper folder model they purchased is not capable of folding multiple sheets and their paper folding plans are crushed.

You may be wondering if there is a paper folding machine capable of folding stapled sheets automatically. For example, is it possible to place a stack of stapled sheets in the paper feed tray, push a button and let the paper folder do the rest? Unfortunately such a model does not exist. You must feed each stapled set by hand. Even though this may still be an inconvenience, the timesavings offered by a paper folding machine is significant when compared to folding sheets by hand.

There is currently a limited selection of paper folding machine models available that boast multiple sheet folding capabilities. This article features a few of our best-selling paper folding machine models that have the capability of folding (in some cases) up to five stapled sheets at a time.

The Martin Yale 1611 Ease-of-Use AutoFolder Paper Folding Machine is the first model we typically recommend for folding stapled sheets of paper. The first reason why is it’s affordably priced for a semi-automatic paper folding machine. It’s also straightforward when it comes time to operate the machine.

Up to five stapled sheets may be folded by simply hand-feeding the stack into the bypass feed table located on the top of the machine.

Very similar to the model 1611, the Martin Yale 1711 Electronic Ease-of-Use AutoFolder Paper Folding Machine is also recommended. That’s because in addition to its multiple sheet folding feature, the 1711 is a fully automatic machine. This is desired by some who prefer not to spend the time adjusting the folding plates on a paper folding machine manually.

The Formax FD 38X Automatic Tabletop Paper Folder is a high-volume model capable of folding up to 20,100 sheets per hour. It has a multi-sheet feeder that allows up to four sheets, stapled or unstapled, to be folded at one time.
