Paper Burster Guide

What is a paper burster?

Paper bursters, also known as form bursters, effectively separate perforated forms, gift certificates, or coupons. Bursters also cut the tractor-feed edges off of computer form paper and checks.

What are the different kinds of bursters?

Continuous forms bursters separate sheets of paper that are continuously attached to each other, like computer forms, along perforated edges.

Cut sheet bursters, such as the V 415, burst separate, non-attached sheets of paper into smaller sheets. Cut sheet bursters are different than continuous forms bursters because the individual sheets are already separate from the stack of forms.

What is your paper bursting volume?

There are several sizes of paper bursters. Generally, the larger the machine, the more expensive it becomes and the more volume it bursts.

Tabletop bursters are our smallest paper bursters. These bursters easily sit on a table top for lower-volume bursting. Tabletop bursters burst anywhere from 40-160 feet of paper per minute.

Mid-size bursters handle intermediate-volume bursting jobs. These paper bursters average 175 feet of paper per minute and are slightly larger than tabletop bursters.

High-volume and heavy-duty bursters are designed for maximum-volume bursting. They burst between 250-300 feet of paper per minute. They are ideal for companies with large bursting volumes.

What optional machines do you need?

A check signer is one convenient addition to a paper burster. A checksigner automatically signs large volumes of checks. Since many companies use bursters to separate checks, a check signer is a natural addition to the bursting process.

A stand is a convenient place to sit your burster, especially if it is larger. While some forms bursters are small enough to sit on a table, it is more convenient to place larger burster equipment on a separate stand.

In-feed tables and exit trays are a necessity when bursting large stacks of paper. They hold computer forms as they are fed into and exit the paper burster.

A belt conveyor stacker is also handy for automatically stacking large numbers of bursted forms as they exit the burster.

A decollator is a machine that separates several forms into separate stacks. This is handy when you burst several different forms at once and want to automatically separate them into different piles.

Now that you know what to look for, you are ready to shop for the burster to meet your needs. Visit our paper burster index to choose the right burster today!
