Formax FD3300 Air Suction Folder

High performance folding in a compact tabletop unit

The FD 3300 Air‑Suction Document Folder offers high performance folding in a compact tabletop unit, ideal for digitally printed documents on heavy and coated stock. The air‑suction feed technology reduces static electricity and minimizes feed marks common in traditional friction feed systems. The FD 3300 utilizes internal fans to produce air and suction for quiet operation in a smaller footprint. The feeding system also includes a side air system for enhanced feeding of heavier stocks and larger sheets of paper.

With a speed of up to 18,600 sheets per hour, and a feed tray capacity of up to 625 sheets, the FD 3300 quickly powers through a range of applications, all at the touch of a button, while Optical and Ultrasonic Double Feed Detection ensures document integrity. To accommodate a variety of paper weights and sizes, fan speed and air flow can be adjusted independently using the interactive control panel and external adjustment knobs.

User‑friendly features include automatic paper size detection and fold plate settings, 4.3" color touch screen LCD control panel, six programmed fold settings, and the ability to store up to 30 custom folds. The FD 3300 includes a cross folding guide, a four‑digit counter with batch counting capability, four fold rollers for accuracy, and a variety of document security features.

Fully automated and insulated for quiet operation, the FD 3300 is ideal for on demand printing in the office environment.
