The Intelli-Fold DE-172AF is one of the best 11" x 17" paper folding machines you can buy. It is built on the DE-202AF with a few additional improvements. This is the perfect machine for folding small sheets all the way up to large. This style of paper folder is excellent for folding literature, brochures, menus, letters, invoices and much more. This machine comes equipped with several features, many of which you may want to have in your office, school or other organization.
To begin with, the DE-172AF is a paper folding machine designed to handle paper as small as 3.5" x 5" all the way up to 11" x 17". For the price, few machines have this machine folding range. It can also be used with paper ranging in thickness from 16# bond up to 50# index. This means it can be used to fold standard copy paper or card stock.
The Intelli-Fold DE-172AF is essentially an upgraded Intelli-Fold or Dynafold DE-202AF. A few of the upgraded features include an exit conveyor and sensors designed to ensure proper operation. The exit conveyor uses a conveyor system with weighted rollers to keep paper neat, stacked and organized as it leaves the machine. This style of exit system is excellent for folding invoices, bills and other material that needs to stay in alphanumerical order.
The feed tray on this machine is large and has a 500-sheet capacity, which is about the size of an entire ream of paper. Three friction rollers pull this paper in from the top, one sheet at a time. Once folding is complete, the machine will automatically shut off until more paper is inserted. Because these rollers "grab" the paper for folding, it is not recommended to use the DE-172AF with slick, glossy or coated paper.
The DE-172AF uses two folding pates, both located on the opposite side of the machine from the feed tray. This design is compact and makes setup easy. Simply adjust the top folding plate to the fold you need to make and the bottom plate afterwards. Folds are clearly marked on the plates, making this machine very easy to set up. This paper folder can create a letter fold, accordion fold, double parallel fold, gate fold, engineering fold and a half fold. While common folds are marked on the plates, the folding plates can be adjusted to accommodate custom folds as well.
A dial, located next to the power switch, can be turned clockwise to full speed (6,000 sheets per hour). This variable speed control is nice and is rarely found on machines in this price range. The DE-172AF is also very well build. It features a metal chassis, metal folding plates, high-quality electronics and other durable materials. Buy yours today!
