INTRODUCTION
•
The Sprint 3000 Bookletmaker is a heavy duty machine for centre stapling and folding to make
booklets between 4¼“ x 5½“ and 8½“ x 11” with up to 100 pages. On each cycle of the machine
one set of sheets is stapled and the preceding set is folded and stacked on the conveyor belt.
•
It is also possible to edge and corner staple up to 30 sheets of 20 lb bond 8½“x 11” paper.
•
The machine can either be hand fed or placed on-line to one of the various desktop vertical
collators, using a KAS conveyor/ jogger link. A stand is also supplied to carry the collator so that
it is the correct height for feeding into the Bookletmaker.
•
The Sprint 3000 is a floor standing machine fitted with sturdy castors and an integral conveyor
which can be folded up in order to occupy minimal floor space when not in use.
•
This model has three stapling heads as standard and five stapling positions. The centre stapler is
fixed, whereas the outside heads may be moved to alternative positions depending upon the size of
paper.
•
A low staple detector is fitted to one of the stapling heads, and the Bookletmaker will stop before
the stapling head runs out of staples.

4.1 Loading Staples :
1.
Only those staples sold or recommended by your supplier should be used in the Sprint 3000
Bookletmaker. Use of non recommended staples may damage the stapling heads and they are not
covered by any warranty.
2.
Raise the top cover and depress the small blue lever at the front of each stapling head and pull out
the cassette. Staple type 66/6 will be suitable for most thin books. Type 66/8 should be used for
thicker sets of paper, over 16 sheets of 20 lb bond.
3.
Push the filled staple cassettes back after reloading until they click into position.
WARNING - Never operate the machine when the staple cassettes are extended for
loading. This will cause serious irreparable damage to the stapling heads and they are not
covered by any warranty.

When the staple out system is in use, the staple count reset button should be pressed each time the
stapling heads are reloaded.
4.2 Staple Out System (option):
Each staple cassette should be charged with a complete stick of staples, approximately 210. If not,
ensure that a similar number of staples is placed in each head. For the Staple Out System to operate a
minimum of 35 staples must be loaded.
1.
Ensure the Staple Out Detection Switch is set to ON.
2.
The Bookletmaker is now ready for use.
3.
During operation the Bookletmaker will continue to run until two or three staples are left, and then
the Staple Out Indicator, figure 3, will illuminate and the Bookletmaker will stop.
4.
Leaving the remaining three staples in the cassette, the operator must now refill both staple
cassettes. Close both cassettes securely and press the reset button before continuing the job.
Note: If the Bookletmaker is switched off with less than 30 staples in the cassette, the count is lost, i.e.
when switched back on, the machine will not detect that staples are low. To avoid this, do not switch the
machine off for short periods of non-operation. The Bookletmaker motor will automatically shut down if
left unattended for more than 3 minutes, however in this case the staple count is retained.
4.3 Staple Jam :
To clear jammed staples from heads, pull up on bottom of the stapling head near the front to eject any
damaged staples. Repeat this step two or three times to make sure that staples are being ejected
correctly and are not damaged.
WARNING - When clearing jammed staples, do not put fingers under front-most portion of
stapling head, so avoiding injury to fingers from staples being ejected from the head.
Make sure that the anvils are clear of all loose and/or damaged staples.

4.4 Paper Width Settings:
1. Both side guides should be adjusted for a given size of paper. Loosen the thumbscrews and move the
side guides until their outside edges are level with the marking on the scale corresponding to the width
of the paper, and then re-tighten the thumbscrews so that the guides are held in place.
Figure 4 - Side guides.
2. Note that the marked settings are meant to be wider than the paper, to allow for side jog. Both
guides move inwards on each cycle to the correct width to ensure that the sheets are aligned before
stapling occurs.

4.5 Stapling / Folding Positions :
1.
The Stapling and the Folding positions are adjusted as one. Loosen fold stop lock thumbscrew,
figure 5.
2.
Turn the fold stop adjustment wheel until the staple stop aligns with the appropriate calibration on
the scale, for the size of paper being used.
Figure 5 - Fold stop
3.
Re-tighten fold stop lock thumbscrew when the stop has been correctly positioned.

If fold line is not perpendicular to booklet edges, this can be corrected by adjusting the fold stop
tilt thumbscrew, figure 6, on the left-hand side of the fold stop adjusting shaft. Loosen the locking
nut and turn the thumbscrew clockwise to raise the left-hand end of the fold stop, or anticlockwise to lower. Tighten locking nut.
Figure 6 - Fold stop tilt.

4.6 Changing stapling head positions.
1.
To move the stapling heads to the alternative positions, loosen the stapling head locking levers,
figure 7, several turns and then slide the entire stapling unit to the new position.
2.
When moving the stapling head, hold the bracket and retaining plate end, as side pressure on the
front end of the stapling head will cause misalignment between stapling head and anvil.
3.
Re-tighten the locking levers into the tapered hole, which will align the stapling head in the new
position.

Four positions are provided for the various sized books between 4¼“ x 5½“ and 8½“ x 11”, with
an additional fixed centre position.
BOOKLET MAKING.
The machine will not operate with the top safety cover in the raised position. After closing the top
safety cover it is necessary to press the circuit reset button (if fitted), located in the left hand inside
side wall. This is an added safety feature and the machine will not cycle until the button is pressed.
Figure 8 - Operating controls
2.
When the machine is switched on the motor will not start until the first set of paper is placed in the
machine. If it is left running and not used for a period of more than three minutes the motor will
automatically switch off. The motor will re-start when paper is placed in the machine.
3.
The stapling / folding operation is started when sensors detect the paper in the machine. The time
between the paper entering the machine and the stapling action can be varied. This is achieved by
turning the Stapling Delay Control shown in figure 8 clockwise for more time and anti-clockwise
for less. When first using the machine, give the Stapling Delay Control a quarter turn clockwise.
This will give time for the operator to settle the paper between the guides before the machine
cycles.
oper3500.doc

4.
When paper is placed in the machine it breaks the light beam between the photocell emitter (part
no. 2.83) and the photocell receiver (part no. 2.71). On the interruption of the beam the time set
by the timer expires and the machine will operate for one cycle.
5.
If the stapled set fails to drop into the folding position the guides may be set too closely and must
be set slightly wider. The first set placed in the machine will not fold and exit to the conveyor until
the second set is being stapled. To release the last set from the machine, hold a scrap of paper
under the stapling heads for one cycle and then remove it.
6.
The conveyor wheels shown in figure 11 should be adjusted so that the wheels are just over a
book’s distance from the fold rollers. Too close and they will interfere with subsequent booklets
coming out of the fold rollers. If the wheels are too far away the booklets will have the tendency to
insert themselves inside previously ejected booklets.
7.
Staple Position Fine Adjustment. If, after correctly setting the fold stop adjustment wheel, it is
found that the staples are not exactly on the fold line, this can be corrected by turning the staple
position fine adjustment screw, figure 9.
Figure 9 - Staple position fine adjustment
Looking at the finished booklets laying on the stacker table after ejection from the fold rollers, if
the staples are visible above the fold, turn adjusting screw anti-clockwise. If the staples are
below the fold, turn adjusting screw clockwise.

CORNER AND EDGE STAPLING
The two paper stops are to aid edge stapling along the long side of 8½“ x 11 paper. Refer to figure 10.
1.
Open the top perspex cover. Move the paper width guides to the position where they will side jog
the set of paper without impeding its path through the machine. For 8½“ x 11 paper, set the guides
to the 11 X 17 markings, when edge stapling along the long side.
2.
For edge stapling, select the desired pair of anvil positions. When corner stapling move the right
hand stapling head to the furthest right position, and remove the staples from the left hand stapling
head. One could also remove the left hand stapling head by loosening the two screws provided.
Read section 8 on replacing heads.
3.
Locate the paper stops on the emitter carrier tube (part no. 2.84) between the outer anvils. The
foot of the stop locates between the anvil bar (2.67) and the second paper table (2.64).
4.
The sheets must be inserted into the bookletmaker until they reach the new paper stop. Then,
without releasing the paper, allow the machine to cycle, before withdrawing the stapled set.

COUNTER
The counter can be reset to '0000' by pressing the rectangular black button below the number window.
8.
REPLACING STAPLING HEADS
Should it become necessary to replace either or both of the stapling heads release the heads from the
stapling head retaining plate (part no. 2.73) by loosening the Allen screws. When fitting a replacement
head ensure that the locating dimples on the head are located correctly in the retaining bracket.
9.
ALIGNING OF STAPLING HEADS
Replacement heads should fit into the Bookletmaker without the need for side to side or backwards and
forwards adjustment. However, should this be necessary, such adjustment is obtained as follows:
1.
Loosen the hexagon head nut fixing the retaining plate to the stapling head universal bar (part no.
2.74).
2.
Unlock and pull out the staple cassette.
3.
Insert the stapling head alignment tool from the bottom into the staple output slot with the numbers
facing the front of the machine.
4.
Close and lock the cassette with tool in place.
5.
Push head and tool down and align head until the bottom of the tool fits into and is centred in the
rear slot of the anvil.
6.
Re-tighten hex head nut, re-check alignment and if correct open cassette and remove alignment
tool.
7.
On the face of the cassette there is a vertical guide line. There is also a line on the anvil. Always
ensure that the two are in line.
