Martin Yale Paper Folding MachinesIf you’re shopping for a folding machine (found here), there are about a half-dozen manufacturers out there that produce some pretty good products. Few paper folder manufacturers have the reputation or the clout of Martin Yale. Martin Yale has been around since 1940 and has manufactured some of the best-selling machines of all time. I would like to go over a few customer favorites you may wan to use in your own office.

Martin Yale currently offers a lineup of about a dozen different machines. Some of these machines have been around for over a decade and use time-tested technology where other machines have a more modern finish and include digital keypads, self-adjusting folding plates and more. The machine you use for your business will ultimately depend on the type of fold you want to create, how many sheets you are folding per day and the type of paper you need to fold.

Recommended Martin Yale Paper Folding Machines

  • Martin Yale P6200 AutoFolder (found here)– This affordable desktop letter-folding machine is designed to help an administrative assistant fold the occasional invoice, bill, receipt or letter. It sits nicely on the side of a desk and doesn’t require any special setup. Simply place your paper in the top of the machine and it will do the rest. It is designed for use with letter size (8 ½” x 11″) paper around 20-24# bond thick.
  • Martin Yale 1501X AutoFolder (found here) – The 1501X, sometimes called the CV7, is a auto-feed folding machine. This means you can place a stack of paper in the feed tray (in this case about 160) and the machine will automatically feed the paper into the machine and fold it. The 1501X features manual-setup folding plates and can be used to fold paper in accordion, letter, single, double parallel and more. This machine has been around for a decade and is very popular with small businesses.
  • Martin Yale 1611 AutoFolder (found here) – This folding machine is relatively new to Martin Yale’s lineup of folding machines. It has been wildly popular with our customers. While the folding plates are manually adjusted, this machine is extremely easy to use. It is affordable and includes high-end features such as a drop-in feed system (no pre-fanning required) and a powered exit conveyor that helps keep paper stacked as it leaves the machine.
  • Martin Yale 1711 AutoFolder (found here) – This is one of the most affordable automatic folding machines available. By automatic, I mean that the setup is completely automated. Simply select the fold you want from the control panel and the machine will automatically adjust the folding plates. The 1711 features a drop-in feed system, a powered exit conveyor and works beautifully on a desk or table.
  • Martin Yale 2051 SmartFold (found here) – If you need a folding machine with a little more folding power, consider the Martin Yale 2051 SmartFold. This machine, formerly called the Intimus 2051, features a variable speed motor capable of running at a speed of 15,000 sheets per minute. It can handle small paper, large paper (up to 12″ x 18″), has a drop-in feed system, automatic folding plates and a nice powered exit conveyor system. This machine is perfect for medium to higher-volume folding.
  • Martin Yale Mark VII Pro (found here) – If you are a printing press or have need of a high-speed commercial folding machine, the Martin Yale Mark VII Pro is a great option. This replaces the popular Model 959. While it does have manually-adjusted folding plates, it runs at blazing fast speeds of up to 35,000 sheets of paper per hour.
