Operational efficiency and powerful communications

Manually folding paper can be a tedious and time-consuming task, leaving you with bottlenecks at inconvenient times. Whether you need to send letters, invoices, statements, or direct mail, getting the job done on time can mean that the quality of the document suffers.

The Ashcroft DF800 & DF900 paper folders automatically fold your documents quickly and accurately to improve office productivity. Precise folds time after time maintain your professional image and help to eliminate waste. This folder will ensure you operate efficiently and achieve your objectives.

Easy to use and unobtrusive

  • The LCD control panel guides operates through the process of creating or editing a job using easy to follow wizards.
  • Store and recall up to 20 pre-defined jobs or run a ‘temporary’ or operator-defined job. Once a job is set up, it can be recalled at the touch of a button.
  • When processing standard materials, a simple adjustment of the feeder size guide is all that is required to begin operating the equipment.
  • Ashcroft folding machines are ideal for any office thanks to their small footprint.

Eliminate errors and wasted materials

  • Before running any job, a trial piece allows you to check exactly how your document will look once folded.
  • The unique orientation icon assists when loading documents, so you achieve the desired look first time.
  • Double feed detection automatically stops the machine if more than one piece is fed.
  • The batch counter stops the machine automatically when the required numbers of documents have been folded. You won’t fold more items than you need.

Productivity

  • This folder will get the job done quickly, handling up to 20,000 documents per hour.
  • Both the DF800 and DF900 have generous capacity stackers to collect the finished documents. The DF900 comes with a 500 capacity stacker as standard which can be increased to 1000 with the optional high capacity extension. This leads to a reduction in the time taken for unloading finished documents.
  • There’s no need to stop the machine to load more documents. The equipment can run continually for longer periods with no impact on productivity.

Flexibility

  • Folding a small number of items is easy. The manual mode allows you to feed up to 5 stapled sets by hand.
  • Seven different types of fold mean that you have the flexibility to present your document exactly how you want it. The DF900 has an optional cross folding facility which makes it ideal for booklet applications.
  • Both the DF800 and DF900 can handle a wide range of paper weights and sizes.
