Make sure that the system is electrically grounded. This prevents an electric shock when there is a leak
of electricity.
Use the system at 110 – 120 VAC, 220 – 240 VAC with a frequency of 50Hz to 60Hz. A fire may start or
the system may break down if a higher or lower voltage is used, or if an electric current with a
frequency that is not within the range of frequency stated above.
Do not place any objects on this system. A fire may start or electricity may leak if water or a foreign
object enters the system.
Handle the power cord with care. A fire may start or an electric shock may be caused if the cord is
damaged, broken, or processed, if a heavy object is placed on the cord, or if the cord is bent forcibly.

How to Use
1. Preparation
(1) Setting table 1 and 2
Fit (a) and (b) of table 1 and (c) and (d) of table 2 on the studs (a), (b), (c)
and (d) at the left and right sides of the side plate.
When setting Table 1, be sure to put the stopper plate in the centre. If table 1 and 2 are not properly set,
the system may not be able to fold paper correctly.
CAUTION
Ensure that both Table 1 and 2 aren’t warped and properly fitted on the studs (a) (b) (c) and (d). If they are
improperly set, it may cause incorrect folding or injury.
(2) Setting paper
Pull the paper stacking table out and set it while lifting the
feed table.
Raise the paper feed table lever.
Set the paper guide at the required size
of paper stock being used.
Place the paper on the feed table
with its printed side facing up.
Ensure that the paper is loaded neatly and with its leading
edge flush with the front plate of the feed tray.
8
Place the paper printed side down in case of fold-out.
Place the paper on the feed table so that it touches the paper guide and then tighten the paper guide
setscrews.
Lower the paper feed table lever and set the paper.
If the paper does not come in contact with the paper feed roller, it may be fed incorrectly. In such case,
the leading edge of the paper may touch the guide plate in the front and prevent the paper from being
fed. Reset it by pulling it backwards.
If the paper is curled or wrinkled it might cause the sheets to misfeed. Correct it before use.
In the case of printed paper, use it only after the ink is dry, otherwise the paper feed rubber roller, paper
separator, fold roller and other parts of the unit will be stained with ink and may get ink on subsequent
sheets.
Do not use ruled paper as the paper folding may deteriorate.
(3) Setting paper ejection roller
Set the paper ejection roller at the indication for the size of paper
stock used. If the roller is set at a wrong position, it may cause problems with stacking of folded sheets.
The paper folding length may be altered depending on the fold
type and paper curl may be caused by changes of temperature and
humidity. Therefore, whenever a paperjam occurs at the stage of
ejection, reset to adjust the paper eject roller to the best position.
(4) Setting paper stacking table
Pull out the paper stacking table and set it so that the ejected
sheets flows out smoothly.
2. Operation Procedure
(1) Switch the power on.
Insert the plug into the power socket and switch the power on. Be sure to remove the power plug from
the socket after use.
(2) Setting Paper Fold Position
Pull the fold adjustment lever to move the stopper plate to the desired position on Table 1 and 2,
matching the stopper plate mark (?) with the position and leave the half-nut lever there. The stopper
plate automatically locks at the position where the half-nut lever remains.
* Incase of single fold only, all size paper should be set at the position of ‘All Sizes’ . Should wrinkles or
irregular folding occur in single fold, move the stopper plate until halting by the stopper adjustment
knob.

(3) Test Folding
Press the test key to feed 2 sheets of paper. Check if
the paper has been folded correctly by examining the
second of the 2 folded sheets.
* When the fold position is not correct, refer to
‘Adjusting Paper Fold Position’.
CAUTION
Never put your hand in any driving part such as a roller. Keep ties, necklaces, hair etc away from the
system as this can cause injury.
(4) Adjusting Paper Fold Position
When the fold position is incorrect, refer to the following chart.
* The illustration represents the folded paper seen from the operator. ( ) shows the length of folding and
L stands for paper length.
10
(5) Square Fold Adjustment
Turn the adjustment wheel to the right if the lower side of the
folded paper slants to the right. Turn the wheel to the left of the
lower side slants to the left.
* In other cases than single fold, place the folded paper with its
face down on Table 1 and make the adjustment.
(6) To Start Folding
Press the Start/Stop key. The system starts to fold the sheets continuously.
Press the Start/Stop again while the system is in operation, to stop.
* The counter continues to add up the number of sheets folded.
If the desired number of sheets only is to be fed, set that number by pressing 1000, 100, 10 keys.
Then the reduction mode lamp will be on.
Under the following conditions, the system will automatically stop feeding;
• When the start/stop key is pressed while there is no stock
• When the start/stop key is pressed while the paper feed lever is at the lower position.
• When the stock runs out
• When paper feed slip occurs
• When paper jam occurs at Table 1 and Table 2
• When paper stack table is full
• When a paper jam occurs at the paper ejecting unit
Press the clear/reset key to reset after the error is corrected.
(7) To Stop Paper Feed
Press the stop key to halt paper feed while the system is in operation.
(8) Correction of Paper Jam
Should paper jams occur, switch the power off immediately and remove the jammed sheets.
When the jammed paper is stuck around the folder roller or other parts, it can easily be removed by
detaching Table 1 and 2 from the unit. When the roller cover is opened, the system will stop the operation
in an instant.
