  1. Martin Yale 1217A Automatic Paper Folding Machine review by Product Expert on 7/13/2017

    For meeting various sort of paper folding requirements, ranging from normal everyday tasks to the high-volume paper folding, Martin Yale 1217A Automatic Paper Folding Machine comes as a complete solution to serve all these purposes. This machine possesses a strong chassis, great features, and a durable design to ensure that it performs the folding jobs well in all sorts of work settings. The product is warranted and offers a high level of safety for the users during the operations.

    The Martin Yale 1217A has its unique advantages;

    1- The best part of this sophisticated product is that it is highly simple to operate. Once the input is on the feed tray, it gets fed, folded, and collected automatically. There are huge rubber rollers and an excellent conveyor belt that together delivers fanned output without interruption. Another great feature of Martin Yale 1217A is its jam-free processing that is made possible by its reversible motor and removable tablets.
    2- This product is helpful for users at all levels as its paper guide makes the adjustment of the fold plates a breeze. Even the beginners can follow the markings and adjust the plates for letter, legal size paper or 11" x 17" folding. It also allows customizable first and second folds with different size specifications.
    3- It can furnish the input with up to six different fold types i.e., "C", "Z", single, double parallel, baronial, and right angle folds. A folded paper can be refolded using the manual bypass feature.
    4- The machine is highly efficient and delivers at the speed of folding 10,300 sheets per hour. A wide range of paper sizes and paper weights can be accommodated. The feed tray is wide and comes handy for storing up to 250 folded sheets.

    A few weaknesses that you might want to know before operating Martin Yale 1217A automatic paper folding machine are;

    1. Manual setup makes the machine a difficult one for the users looking for large-scale and more frequent paper folding with various fold types. Fold plate adjustment, in particular, takes plenty of time for reaching the desired specifications.
    2- The unit does not accommodate the specialty stuff like glossy paper, photo paper and other materials of that sort.

    On the whole, Martin Yale 1217A offers great convenience and speed in paper folding and its simplicity makes it suitable for all work settings. However, for saving more time from setup and manual adjustment and for adding versatility to your paper folding tasks, consider the more advanced and automatic paper folders from Martin Yale or any other reputed brand that offers folding machines with lesser setup time and capability to handle a wide array of materials with consistency.
