About the DocuMaster MFC
The DocuMaster MFC converts sets of printed pages into staple-folded booklets. It will also add a separate pre-printed cover if required. A creaser module
can pre-crease any pages in the set to allow for heavier stock or digital printing.
The DocuMaster MFC typically consists of the following components:
• A GUI (Graphical User Interface) colour touch-screen that controls the operation of the DocuMaster MFC
• Feed bins, that are used to add covers or inserts to booklets where required
• A creaser module
• A gathering station, that gathers complete sets of pages
• A booklet maker that staples and folds the sheets into booklets
• A trimmer that trims the fore edge of the booklet
• An outfeed conveyor that connects to the trimmer
• The SquareBack system that post-processes booklets to give them the
appearance of perfect binding with the security of a stapled spine. This is an
optional module and is documented in a separate operating manual

DocuMaster MFC User Manual
3 - About the Machine
INCH ~ Touch and hold INCH to turn the conveyor. The conveyor will stop when
INCH is released. This is used for clearing any sets remaining in the conveyor
after a jam, etc.
When the machine is running, this button changes to PAUSE. Touch PAUSE to
pause the feed for approximately 5 seconds, the conveyor continues to run. The
pause time can be altered on the Machine Options page.
END JOB ~ Touch END JOB when you want to set the machine up for a new job,
or alter an existing job. When a job is loaded, some of the machine settings cannot be changed, to prevent accidental changes. END JOB unlocks these settings.
This only affects settings that change the integrity of the job, e.g. the number of
sheets in a set, or the number of sets in a batch.
TEST SET ~ When the test set icon is highlighted, the DocuMaster MFC is
ready to run a test set. The DocuMaster MFC uses the test set to calibrate the
system according to the stock in each bin. The test set is not counted by the
counter (except when in prenumber mode). Once the test set is completed and
is accepted by starting the machine, the bins and certain functions cannot be
changed, to prevent errors and accidental button pushes.
To run a test set:
• Load the DocuMaster MFC.
• Touch the button.
• The tower will feed a single sheet from each bin that is switched on and
loaded.
• If an error occurred during the test set, or the bin loading is changed at this
stage, touch to run another test set.
• When the test set icon is grey, the machine is ready to run.
If either the TEST SET or END JOB button is touched, another test set will need to
be run before the job can be restarted: the test set icon will be highlighted.
If you are having trouble running a job and false errors are being reported, it
may help to run another test set. This can be done at any time to recalibrate the
detector system.
HELP ~ Touch HELP and then touch any area of the screen to display the help
text. Use the ‘up’ and ‘down’ arrows next to the text to scroll up or down the
screen.
Some sections of help text have a ‘right’ arrow next to them. This indicates that
there is more text available, explaining a related function in more detail. Touch
the ‘right’ arrow to view this text. A ‘left’ arrow will then also appear: touch this to
return to the previous text.

Toggle between metric and imperial measurements
Adjust the screen contrast
Adjust the pause duration
There are several access levels: some of the settings can only be changed by
users with an appropriate access code.
MIMIC DIAGRAM ~ The mimic diagram of the DocuMaster MFC shown on
screen is automatically created, based on how many bins are fitted and what
finishing equipment is connected. Various areas on the outline will be highlighted in different colours, according to the DocuMaster MFC’s operational status. The feed bin colours mimic the bin indicator lights:

Steady green: This bin is selected, and is loaded with paper
White: This bin is not selected
Broken line between bins: These bins are linked
Flashing green: This bin is selected, but it has run out of paper
Flashing red: This bin has had a double feed, which has caused the DocuMaster MFC to stop. The error will be explained in a pop-up box
• Flashing yellow: This bin has had a miss, which has caused the DocuMaster
MFC to stop. The error will be explained in a pop-up box
Booklet Maker and Trimmer:
• White: The booklet maker and trimmer are ready for use.

• Red: The booklet maker and trimmer are not ready. This may be caused by
an open guard or full trim bin.
Errors in other modules are indicated in red.
C ~ Touching C resets the set counter to 0.
SPH ~ SPH shows the actual production speed of the DocuMaster MFC, in sets
per hour. The production speed is affected by paper size, online finishing equipment and the job setup.
The ‘BASIC’ Window
The BASIC window contains settings that regularly need to be altered when setting up a new job.
‘BASIC’ Window.
SETS PER HOUR ~ SETS PER HOUR allows the production rate of the DocuMaster MFC to be set.
AUTO: Selecting AUTO allows the DocuMaster MFC to run at its maximum
production speed according to paper size, online finishing equipment and the
job setup.
SINGLE SET: Normally there will be more than one set in the conveyor at any
one time. Touch SINGLE SET to allow only one set in the conveyor at a time.
This minimises the correction required should an error occur. The sets per
hour will automatically adjust to achieve this.
AIR BLOW ~ AIR BLOW alters the amount of air available for sheet separation
in the feed bins. As a general rule, the heavier and larger the sheet, the more air
you need. The default factory setting depends on the type of feed bins (25% for
friction, 40% for SlimVAC).
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
15
3 - About the Machine
If you are running mixed stocks on friction bins, individual air taps on each bin
allow the air to be independently controlled.
PRESET ~ PRESET is used if an exact number of sets are required. Touch PRESET and enter the number of sets required on the number pad. The counter in
the main area of the screen will turn white. When the machine is started the
counter will automatically count down to zero and the DocuMaster MFC will
then stop.
Touch to restart the machine. The counter will revert to black and will count
up to show how many ‘overs’ are produced.
The Preset function is ideal for producing a one-off batch. If you wish to produce
several identical batches, it is easier to use the Batch function.
PRENUMBER ~ PRENUMBER is intended for use when collating pre-numbered
carbonless sets. Touching PRENUMBER selects Single Set mode and causes the
test set to be counted by the counter. It also prevents the operator from switching linked bins before one bin has emptied.
It is possible to switch off Single Set mode once Prenumber is selected. This
allows the machine to run faster when using stock that feeds easily.
CREASER ~ See “Creasing Module” on page 46.
The ‘ADVANCED’ Window
The ADVANCED window allows advanced machine settings to be altered. These
settings may be altered to optimise the quality and productivity of a job.
‘ADVANCED’ Window.
DRIVE SPEED ~ DRIVE SPEED alters the drive speed of the conveyor rollers
and therefore the speed at which the sheets exit the DocuMaster MFC. This setting is independent from the SETS PER HOUR setting.
16
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
3 - About the Machine
SHEET OFFSET ~ SHEET OFFSET shales the sheets as they exit the feed bins.
This can assist the neat stacking of thick sheets or large sets. The range of offset is +/- 20mm between each sheet and affects all bins. The default sheet offset is 0: this causes the sheets in a set to enter the gathering base module with
their leading edges level.
If an offset is required, it is usual for the bottom sheet of the set to lead: select a
positive offset.
A small offset can make jogging more effective.
DETECTOR POSITION ~ The sheet detector measures 15.2mm (0.6") from the
feed edge of the sheet and then takes a reading. If the edge of a particularly
dark or solid area of print is in this area it can cause detection problems. The
DETECTOR POSITION can be adjusted so that it looks at a different part of the
sheet. This affects all the bins in the DocuMaster MFC.
TOLERANCE: Changing TOLERANCE to x2 COARSE allows for more variation
in the detector readings. This prevents false errors being reported when
there are variations in the paper or ink density. The default setting is x1 NORMAL.
The DocuMaster MFC allows for some variation in the paper or ink density,
and constantly changes the range of values it will accept by working out an
average value for previous sheets. Increasing Tolerance to x2 COARSE will
only be necessary where there are larger variations in stock.
DOUBLE DETECTION: Under unusual circumstances, e.g. there are large variations in stock, it may be necessary to turn off DOUBLE DETECTION. This
affects all the bins in the DocuMaster MFC. Miss feed detection is unaffected.
Before switching off double detection, first try setting TOLERANCE to x2
COARSE.
FEED CLUTCH ~ FEED CLUTCH adjusts the clutch feed length for all bins during
the test set only. Increasing the value will cause the feed wheels or belt to drive
the paper for longer, which can prevent sheets from slipping. The value can be
reduced to prevent excessive pre-feeding of the next sheet in the bin.
Optimising the clutch feed length for non-standard paper lengths will produce a
more accurate test set, which in turn should reduce errors during the job. The
default value is 186.2mm (7.35") during the test set, thereafter the feed length is
automatically set to suit the paper size.
AUTO: Touch AUTO to set the clutch feed length to the default value of
186.2mm (7.35").
SUCTION HOLD ~ Increasing the SUCTION HOLD value causes the feeder to
allow more time to pick up each sheet. If you are using stock that tends to stick
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
17
3 - About the Machine
together, increasing the suction hold can improve paper pick-up and in some
instances, separation.
It is possible to reduce the suction hold when using paper that is easy to feed:
this will increase the operating speed of the machine. The default setting is
300mS.
The ‘FINISHING’ Window
The FINISHING window controls the settings for the booklet maker and trimmer.
‘FINISHING’ Window.
PAPER SIZE ~ Touch PAPER SIZE to alter the settings of the booklet maker and
trimmer to suit the input paper size.
RE-REF: If you suspect the booklet maker or trimmer adjustment system is
not calibrated correctly, touch RE-REF to re-reference the adjustment axes.
The adjustment axes will return to the current settings once this is complete.
Periodically the DocuMaster MFC will automatically re-reference the axes
during the setup procedure.
PAGE DIRECTION: Touching PAGE DIRECTION switches the orientation of the
paper between landscape and portrait. This is only possible if the sheet does
not exceed the maximum width accepted by the booklet maker.
PRESETS: Select from a choice of standard paper sizes by touching the PRESET window.
STITCH AND FOLD ~ The position of the stitch and fold can be offset relative
to the centre of the paper. STITCH AND FOLD allows this position to be adjusted
up to 20mm in either direction, in increments of 0.2mm.
18
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
3 - About the Machine
STITCH: The STITCH OFF option will produce booklets that are folded, but not
stitched.
STITCH POSITION: The ON FOLD option produces booklets which are stitched
on the fold line. The ON EDGE option produces sets which are edge-stitched
and folded.
The Edge/Centre Staple Selection Lever on the booklet maker must be in the
centre-staple position (see p.39).
TRIM ~ Touch TRIM to set the finished book size after trimming. When a preset
paper size is selected, this distance is automatically adjusted, but can be finetuned. The trim function can also be switched off.
PRE STITCH JOGGING ~ The PRE STITCH JOGGING window has options to
alter the way sets are jogged prior to stitching. This ensures the finished booklets are as neat as possible. The maximum speed of the booklet maker will be
reduced when any of the Pre Stitch Jogging options are selected.
PRE JOG: This provides additional jogging to the bottom of the set, when
using heavy or large sheets. The booklet is stopped by the edge-stitch latch
and jogged, before it drops to the stitch latch.
DOUBLE JOG: This provides additional jogging to the sides of the set, when
using heavy or large sheets. The sidelays jog the set twice when it reaches
the stitch latch.
STITCH DELAY: Increasing the STITCH DELAY value will cause a delay
between the set arriving on the stitch latch and it being stitched. This allows
more time for the sheets to settle. The default delay is 1mS.
PRE FOLD JOGGING ~ The PRE FOLD JOGGING window has options to alter
the way sets are jogged prior to folding. This ensures the finished booklets are
as neat as possible.
SIDE JOG HOLD: When SIDE JOG HOLD is selected, the sidelays hold the set
during both stapling and folding without releasing. This is useful if the booklet
is not being folded square, however it is essential that the sheet width is set
accurately.
FOLD DELAY: This can be adjusted to alter the delay between the set arriving
on the fold latch and being folded. This is useful if the booklet is not being
folded square, and allows more time for the sheets to settle. The default
delay is 180mS. The maximum production speed of the booklet maker will be
reduced if the delay is increased.

Tray Extenders
For large sheet sizes (over A4, 8½ x 11") or when
running A4 (or 8½ x 11") portrait it will be necessary
to fit tray extenders to support the sheets.
One B3 (14¼ x 20¼") tray extender is supplied as
standard with each Friction bin.
An optional tray extender is available for running A4 portrait (8½ x 11").
Loading the Bins. Slide the stock into the bin between the sidelays. Push in
the sidelays to centralise the paper in the bin and so that they hold the paper
securely.
Bin
Sidelays
Switching Bins On & Off. Before a test set is produced, individual bins will
automatically switch on and off as they are loaded and unloaded. Bins can also
be manually selected by pressing the red button alongside the bin. In addition,
loading the Default Template will switch on all loaded bins. Remember that bins
cannot be switched on or off when the system is locked (touch END JOB if necessary).
Adjustments
Adjustments for paper type and/or size include control over the amount of tray
pressure and the amount of separator pressure.
Separator Pressure. Increasing the separator pressure acts like a brake, making it more difficult for a second sheet of paper to pass the separator pad. Too
little separator pressure will result in double feeds, too much will result in miss
feeds or damage to the feed edge of the paper.
The ideal separator pressure will depend upon the stock in use. Initially set the
lever to its mid-position. To increase separation, move the lever downwards one
notch at a time, and to decrease separation move the lever upwards one notch
at a time.
Moving the lever to its highest position disengages the separator. This position
is used for the improved feeding of heavy cardstocks.
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
25
3 - About the Machine
Tray Pressure. Increasing the tray pressure gives the feed wheels greater
force on the paper; too much will result in double feeds and increases the possibility of scuffing the paper.
Tray Pressure
Adjustment
Separator Pressure Adjustment
The ideal pressure will depend upon the stock in use. Always use the least
pressure possible. The lever has five positions and is adjusted by gently pushing downwards whilst sliding the lever in or out. The innermost position gives
minimum pressure. Initially set the pressure to minimum for small stock. For
large sheets (i.e. if tray extenders are used) initially position the lever one notch
out.
Air Separation. Air directed from the right hand sidelay is used to separate the
top sheets of paper in the stack. The overall air level is adjusted if required by
altering the AIR BLOW value, in the BASIC window (see p.15). The air level is
also adjustable on each individual bin via a tap on the right hand sidelay.
The tap on the sidelay controls the air level into the side of the paper stack. The
tap has three positions. The default position is 90° to the sidelay which provides
100% air. Moving the lever one notch towards you provides 50% air. Moving the
lever towards you so that it is parallel with the sidelay shuts off the air.
Air Separation
Adjustment
Too much air into the side of the stack can cause the paper to skew as it feeds.
Any bins that are not being used should have the air tap shut off on the sidelay
to preserve overall system air. Remember to open the tap when the bin is next
used.

Bin Linking
If required, two or more feed bins may be linked to operate as a single bin.
When one runs out of stock, the next bin in the linked group will automatically
take over. This allows reloading without stopping the machine. Bin linking can
only be enabled when the bins are unlocked i.e. when the TEST SET icon is highlighted on the control panel. Press the grey button on the upper bin to link it with
the one below. This will be indicated by the small green light. The mimic diagram on the control panel will show a broken line between bins that are linked.
By pressing the red bin on/off button it is possible to select which bin in the
linked group is active.
If the system is locked, pressing the grey button on any bin will indicate which
bins are in the same linked group.
Sensor Overrange
Sensor overrange is indicated after the test set by a slow flashing red light on
the bin in question.
Particularly heavy or opaque stock may cause the bin sensor to go ‘overrange’.
This means that the sheet is too optically dense for the sensor to ‘see’ through
it. Double feeds will not be detected but misses, trailing sheets and jams will be
detected as normal.

Loading the Bins
Place a full stack of paper between the two sidelays in the base of the tray. Maximum capacity is achieved when the paper is slightly below the top of the sidelays. Slide the sidelays inwards to centralise the paper.
Position the rubber endlays on each tray at the end of the paper stack. The endlay should be underneath and just clear of the edge of the paper (by about
1mm, 1/16”).
Note: When using the DocuMaster MFC to collate small sheet sizes, make
sure the tray loaded sensor is not covered by the rubber endlay.
The paper tray raises automatically when the system initially starts and thereafter when the tray is loaded. It is therefore important to load a full stack of paper
at a time. The tray automatically lowers either when the tray is empty or when
is pressed after the machine stops for any reason.
Switching Bins On & Off
Before a test set is produced, individual bins will automatically switch on and off
as they are loaded and unloaded. Bins can also be manually selected by
pressing the red button alongside the bin. In addition, loading the Default Template will switch on all loaded bins. Remember that bins cannot be switched on
or off when the system is locked (touch END JOB if necessary).
Adjustments
There are three adjustments to the feed system which allow the feeding of a
wide range of papers.
Suction Feeder
Suction Feed Angle
Adjustment
Sheet Corrugation
Adjustment
Sheet Corrugation. The profile of the suction
feeder can be adjusted to provide varying amounts
of corrugation in the sheet. Greater corrugation
gives greater separation; less corrugation gives less
separation.
Adjustment is via the knob on the right hand side of the suction feeder. The indicator line on the knob shows the degree of adjustment. The knob is infinitely
adjustable between the limits of its travel. When the indicator line on the knob is

in the fully up position there is no added sheet separation. The fully down position produces maximum separation.
In general the heavier the sheet the less added separation is required. The mid
position is suitable for most paper types and should be used as a starting point if
in doubt for initial running.
Feeder Angle. The angle between the feeder and
the paper can be adjusted to allow the feeding of
particularly heavy and/or curled stocks.
Adjustment is made using the knob on the left hand
side of the suction feeder. Turning the knob one stop
in either direction has the effect of raising or lowering
the outer edge of the feeder. Continuing to turn the knob will alternate between
the two positions. The default position is down.
Tray Height. The tray height is adjusted via the
lever on the SlimVac bin controls. Moving the lever
downwards progressively lowers the paper tray. This
increases the distance between the top of the paper
stack and suction feeder, and also simultaneously
adjusts the flow angle of the air separation.
The default position for the lever is the mid position
which should be suitable for the majority of stock
ranges.

Note: When lowering the tray height, the change
will only take effect the next time the tray raises (i.e. after reloading or restarting).

Sensor Overrange
Sensor overrange is indicated after the test set by a slow flashing red light on

Particularly heavy or opaque stock such as a straw board backing sheet may
cause the bin sensor to go ‘overrange’. This means that the sheet is too optically dense for the sensor to ‘see’ through it. Double feeds will not be detected
but misses, trailing sheets and jams will be detected as normal.
Difficult Papers
Whenever feed difficulties are encountered we recommend that you follow two
basic guidelines:
• Switch off all the bins except one. This allows you to concentrate fully on the
feed of a single bin
• Ensure that only one 'remedy' is tried at a time. This will make it much easier
to identify the solution
The following suggested settings are a recommendation only. Paper characteristics vary and therefore any particular stock may require settings different to
those shown.

Hinges
The cover sheet may require the use of hinge creases. Creases are designed
to facilitate the opening of the book and relieve some of the stress from the staples of the finished booklet.
Hinges are selectable by turning them 'ON' or 'OFF', using the toggle button.
Hinge Distance will default to 6mm. This indicates that each of the 2 hinge
creases will be positioned 6mm from the centre crease (fold position). The user
is able to manually adjust the setting from 6mm up to a maximum of 12mm.
DocuMaster MFC User Manual

4 - Creaser Module
Offset
Use this setting to affect the position of the creases. It is possible to move the
crease from the 'calculated' middle of a sheet by +/- 5mm.
Skew
One of the key features of the creasing module is the ability for the crease angle
to be automatically adjusted as the sheets pass through.
The creaser can automatically detect the lead edge of the sheets and adjust
itself to match each sheet. This means that even if the sheet is not placed into
the feed bin perfectly squarely, as the sheet passes through the Creasing Module, it will self-adjust to align with the sheet each and every time.
Occasionally, it is possible that the sheets have been poorly cut and the lead
edge of the sheet may not be parallel to the desired fold position. If this is the
case, the Skew Offset setting is designed to overcome this and will alter the
default position according to the diagram below.

Adjusting the Creasing Pressure
Some stocks require a more defined crease in order to prevent the substrate
from cracking when folded. This is a mechanical adjustment and should be carried out once you have creased and checked a test sheet. There is an adjustment scale printed onto each adjuster cam, the thicker the scale the deeper the
crease.
1. Ensure the machine is switched 'ON' and the Emergency Stop button has
been turned clockwise to release the safety latch.
2. Move the creasing matrix to the 'Top Dead Centre' position by pressing the
red 'emergency stop button and twisting it to release.
3. Lift and pull the the creaser cover to remove the creaser cover and give
access to the creaser mechanism.
4. Using a 5mm Allen key, unlock the 2 shoulder bolts positioned at each end
of the creasing blade. See the diagram below.
5. Rotate the 2 adjustment cams by the same amount to adjust the blade pressure. Increasing the gradient on the scale will increase the blade pressure.

CHAPTER 5
Maintenance
Service Interval
It is recommended that your DocuMaster MFC is serviced by an approved service engineer every 1,000 operating hours. Please contact your supplier.
This chapter covers all routine adjustment and maintenance procedures that
can be carried out by an operator. Some of these procedures require a degree
of technical competence, and you may prefer for these to be undertaken by your
service engineer.
Operator Maintenance
As with all machinery, your DocuMaster MFC will benefit from periodic cleaning
of general accumulations of paper dust, ink etc.
DocuMaster MFC User Manual
55
5 - Maintenance
Cleaning Materials
The DocuMaster MFC should only be cleaned with a cloth moistened with soap
and water or with alcohol (isopropanol).
Important. Do not use any of the following chemicals to clean the
separators, feed wheels or conveyor wheels:
 Cleaners based on esters and ketones, e.g ethyl or butyl acetate



esters or methyl ketone (MEK).
Aliphatic solvents, e.g. petrol or SBP1.
Aromatic solvents/cleaners, e.g. toluene xylene, napthas.
Chlorinated solvents/cleaners, e.g. trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene genclenes.
All of these chemicals will damage the separators, feed wheels and
conveyor wheels to a varying degree resulting in poor performance
and premature failure.
Touch Screen
The touch screen should only be cleaned with a clean, dry cloth. Abrasive materials and chemicals should never be used to clean the screen.
Light pressure with a suitable cloth should be sufficient to remove fingerprints.
Do not use excessive force.
Static Elimination Bar
The static elimination bar is located in the gathering station.
Caution: Disconnect the machine from the mains electricity supply before
cleaning the static elimination bar.
The pin side of the bar should be cleaned regularly using a small brush such as
a toothbrush. This is vital to the effectiveness and life expectancy of the static
elimination equipment.

Tighten the locking screws and produce a test booklet. Repeat the procedure if
necessary.
Conveyor Clamp Adjustment
The trimmer conveyor clamps are set to a default position at the factory, which
gives a good trim over a wide variety of booklet thicknesses.
However, when trimming unusually thick or thin booklets, the conveyor clamps
may need to be adjusted. This will be necessary if the following problems arise:
• Booklets are trimmed out of square
• Booklets are trimmed too short
• The cover of the booklets are pulled, resulting in damage around the staples
Tools Required. 4mm Allen Key, 2 off 150mm/6" Rule.
Select A4 or 8.5x11" in the FINISHING, PAPER SIZE window (regardless of the
booklet size). Once the booklet maker beeps to confirm it is ready, disconnect it
from the mains electricity supply.

Fold Roller and Conveyors
Build up of dust or dirt on the fold rollers and conveyor belts will eventually
cause slippage or ink transfer. They should therefore be cleaned periodically.
Warning: Access to the manual cranking points on the booklet maker and
trimmer requires the side covers to be removed. For safety reasons this procedure should therefore only be conducted by authorised personnel. Disconnect the power before removing the side covers. At all times keep your
hands away from the blade area of the trimmer.

Sharpening the Trimmer blade
Periodically all trimmer blades will require re-grinding. Poor grinding will result in
poor life, cracks and nicks in the blade. We therefore offer the guidelines on
p.68 which should accompany the blade and anvil when they are sent for regrinding. Your service engineer will arrange regrinding for you if required.
Whenever the trimmer blade is re-ground, check the condition of the anvil also.
This will only require re-grinding if it has become damaged.
Warning: This procedure is potentially hazardous and should only be conducted by suitably skilled personnel. Disconnect the power before removing
the conveyor assembly. Handle the blade with extreme caution and keep
hands clear of cutting edges at all times.
Tools Required. 3mm Allen Key, 4mm Allen Key, 6mm Allen Key, 10mm Allen
Key, 19mm Spanner.
The trimmer blade and anvil are located behind the conveyor assembly at the
docking end of the unit.

Refitting the Blade and Anvil. Slacken the anvil adjuster screws back two revolutions. Position the anvil fully back towards the conveyor and lightly tighten
the anvil fixing screws. Affix the blade using the five blade fixing screws but do
not tighten. Using the mark made when the blade was removed, adjust the
angle of the blade. Ensure that it does not protrude above the clamp at point ‘A’

Final Adjustment. Release the clutch and manually crank slowly several rotations. Check that the blade passes the anvil smoothly without obstruction.
Place a single sheet of paper (large sheet size) between the blade and the anvil
and manually crank to produce a test cut.
Warning: Ensure that hands are kept clear at all times
Check that a clean cut is obtained across the full width of the blade. If necessary
loosen the anvil fixing screws at the point where adjustment is needed, apply
additional pressure to the anvil adjusting screws (1/6th turn at a time) and retighten the anvil fixing screws.
Perform another test cut and make further adjustments if necessary.

Paper Jams
Paper Jams in the Booklet Maker and Trimmer
Paper jams are most commonly caused by:
•
•
•
•
•
incorrect settings of PAPER SIZE
by paper jammed in the trimmer infeed
an over-full trimmer offcut box
the use of curly paper
using PRE-JOG with large sheet sizes
Open the safety covers of the booklet maker (this will disconnect the power for
safety) and remove any jammed sets.
Sets jammed in the trimmer can be removed from either the infeed or outfeed of
the unit or by removing the trimmer offcut box. Check carefully and correct any
faulty adjustments that caused the jam to occur.
Paper Offcuts Obscuring the Sensor. Paper jams can also be caused by
offcuts obscuring the sensor in the trimmer conveyor.
Warning: Disconnect the machine from the mains electricity supply before
removing the trimmer cover assembly.
