1. Preparation Before Using
the Folding Finisher
Switching the Folding Finisher Between On
and Standby
This section explains how to turn the Folding Finisher on, and how to set it to
standby.
Turning the Folding Finisher On
This section explains how to turn on the Folding Finisher.
A Turn the power switch of the Folding Finisher to ”aOn”.
ATR002S
B Turn on the power switch of the printer.
Note
❒ Turn on the Folding Finisher before turning on the printer. Otherwise, the
printer will not recognize the Folding Finisher.
❒ If the printer does not recognize the Folding Finisher when they were
turned on in the correct order, check that the cable connecting them is firmly
attached at each end.
ATR005S
9
Preparation Before Using the Folding Finisher
Setting the Folding Finisher to Standby
This section explains how to set the Folding Finisher to standby.
A Turn off the power switch of the printer.
B Turn the power switch of the Folding Finisher to “c Stand by”.
1
ATR003S
Note
❒ Setting the Folding Finisher to standby before turning off the printer causes
an alarm. If the alarm sounds, turn the Folding Finisher back on, and then turn
off the printer and set the Folding Finisher to standby in the correct order.
Operating the Anti-humidity Heater Switch
When there is rapid temperature change, such as in winter, or high temperature and
humidity, such as in the rainy season, paper absorbs moisture and wrinkles. An
Anti-humidity Heater is included in the Folding Finisher to prevent such conditions
from occuring. When humidity is high and paper is wrinkled, turn this switch to
“aOn”. Turn this switch to “b Off” when not required. If the Anti-humidity Heater
switch is turned to “aOn”, the Anti-humidity Heater operates, even after the power
switch is turned off.

Functions of the Folding Finisher
Adjusting the folding position
You can adjust folding widths for Fan fold, and margins for Fan fold (Margin Fold).
Note
❒ The folding position can be adjusted using either the Folding Finisher or the
printer. Settings configured with the Folding Finisher are applied when folding
paper in offline mode. Settings configured with the printer are applied when
folding paper in online mode.
2
Adjusting folding width
This section explains how to adjust folding widths, using the example of fan-folding
paper three times to make four surfaces.
If you adjust the folding width n 0.05 inches, the size of each surface is adjusted
as follows:
Before adjustment
After adjustment
1st surface
A inch
A n 0.05 inches
2nd surface
B inch
B n 0.05 inches
3rd surface
C inch
C n 0.05 inches
4th surface
D inch
D o 0.15 inches
The last surface will be shorter than the other surfaces, since the length of the
other surfaces has increased.
ATS035S
Note
❒ Folding position adjustment is applied to all fold types and surfaces. However, a
folding width cannot be set to less than 81/2 inches, since the minimum folding
width for Fan fold is 81/2 inches.
❒ For the procedure to configure settings using the Folding Finisher, see
“Changing the Folding Finisher Settings”.
❒ When configuring settings using the printer, use the system setting “Fold Width

Troubleshooting
Removing Jammed Paper
If x on the Status Display lights up, a paper jam has occurred. This section explains
how to resolve for paper jams.
R CAUTION:
• Keep your hands clear of the Folding Finisher and Paper Exit. You can trap your fingers if
you do not.
Important
❒ Do not set the Folding Finisher to standby when removing the paper. If the
Folding Finisher is set to standby, functions and values you set are cleared.
3
❒ When removing paper, pull it out slowly so that it does not tear. If pieces of paper
remain inside the machine, they may cause another paper jam or malfunction of
the machine.
❒ If paper jams occur regularly, contact your sales or service representative.

4. Remarks
This chapter explains how to maintain and operate the machine.
Where to Put the Machine
The Folding Finisher's location should be carefully chosen because environmental
conditions greatly affect its performance.
Moving
Observe the following precautions when moving the machine.
R CAUTION:
• Contact your service representative if you need to lift the machine (such as when relocating it
to another floor). Do not attempt to lift the machine without the assistance of your service representative. The machine will be damaged if it topples or is dropped, resulting in malfunction
and risk of injury to users. The machine's various handling areas are for service engineer use
only. Do not touch these areas.
Optimum Environmental Conditions
Observe the following precautions when installing the machine.
R CAUTION:
• Keep the machine away from humidity and dust. Otherwise a fire or an electric shock might occur.
• Do not place the machine on an unstable or tilted surface. If it topples over, an injury might occur.
• Make sure the room where you are using the machine is well ventilated and spacious. Good
ventilation is especially important when the machine is used heavily.
•
•
•
•
Temperature: 10 to 30 °C (50 to 86 °F)
Humidity: 15 to 90%
A strong and level base.
The machine must be level within 5 mm (0.2 inches): both front to rear and
left to right.
33
Remarks
Environments to Avoid
• Locations exposed to direct sunlight or other sources of strong light (1,500 lux
or more).
• Locations directly exposed to cool air from an air conditioner or heated air
from a heater. (Sudden temperature changes can cause condensation to form
inside the machine.)
• Locations close to machines generating ammonia, such as a diazo copy machine.
• Places where the machine will be subject to frequent strong vibration.
• Dusty areas.
• Areas with corrosive gases.
4
Access to the Machine
Place the machine near the power source, providing the clearance areas shown.

A Rear
Varies depending on the
connected printer.
B Right
80 cm (31.5 inches) or more
C Front
100 cm (39.4 inches) or more
D Left
80 cm (31.5 inches) or more
Note
❒ For details about the space required behind the machine, see the Troubleshooting
manual of the printer's operating instructions.
34
Where to Put the Machine
Power Connection
Observe the following precautions regarding the power supply.
R WARNING:
• Connect the machine only to the power source described on the inside front cover of this
manual. Connect the power cord directly into a wall outlet and do not use an extension cord.
• Do not damage, break or make any modifications to the power cord. Do not place heavy objects
on it. Do not pull it hard nor bend it more than necessary. These actions could cause an electric
shock or fire.
R WARNING:
• If the power cord is damaged (exposure of the core, disconnection, etc.), contact your service
representative to change a new one. Operating the machine with a damaged power cord
may cause an electric shock or fire.
4
R CAUTION:
• When you disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet, always pull the plug (not the cable).
R CAUTION:
• To disconnect the power code, pull it out by plug. Do not drag the code itself. Doing so may
result in damage to the code, leading to fire or electric shock.
• Make sure the plug is inserted firmly in the wall outlet.
Make sure the plug is inserted firmly in the wall outlet.
The socket-outlet shall be installed near the machine and shall be easily accessible.
Maintaining the Machine
Important
❒ Do not use chemical cleaners or organic solvents, such as thinner or benzene.
If such substances get inside the machine or melt plastic parts, malfunctions
might occur.
❒ Internal parts should only be cleaned by your service representative.
❖ Cleaning the machine:
Wipe the machine with a soft, dry cloth. If this does not remove the dirt, wipe
the machine with a damp and tightly wrung cloth. If a damp cloth still does
not remove the dirt, use a mild detergent. After wiping the machine with a
damp cloth, wipe it again with a dry cloth to remove any moisture.
