INTRODUCTION
•
The Sprint 5000 Bookletmaker centre staples and folds to make booklets between 4” x 5½“
and 8½“ x 11” with up to 80 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 20 sheets.
•
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 5000 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 five stapling positions to which the stapling heads can be moved according to
the size of paper. The right hand outside position is for corner stapling.
•
A Staple Out Detector is fitted to each of the stapling heads, and the Bookletmaker will stop
when 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 5000
Bookletmaker. Use of non recommended staples may damage the stapling heads and they are
not covered by any warranty.
2.
Raise the top cover.
3.
Raise metal locking bar upwards and remove spent cartridge. Ensure the bar is in the
uppermost position otherwise the cartridge may not load properly.
4.
Make sure that staples do not protrude past the staple tear line. If necessary the staples are
easily torn off at the tear line by tearing downward.
5.
Cartridge should be placed flat on the slide in the body of the stapler and pushed firmly
forward. Do not allow the cartridge to move backwards once inserted into the stapler. If this
occurs remove cartridge from stapler and tear off staples at tear line again before re-inserting.
6.
To keep the cartridge in place push metal locking bar down until it snaps into the grove on the
back of the cartridge.
7.
Press staple out reset button, lower top cover.
8.
The staples do not immediately feed through to the plunger and therefore the machine will not
staple during the first three or four cycles after loading. Where this is a problem, refer to 9 and
10 below.
9.
Turn off staple out detector (select the centre position on the three-way toggle switch, see 4.2)
10.
To avoid books being processed without staples, cycle the machine by placing scrap paper
beneath the heads. Repeat this until staples appear in the paper.
11.
Turn on staple out detector and continue producing books.

4.2 Staple Out System :
This is switched on and off using a three-way toggle switch located on the inside left-hand side wall
underneath the shelf. Select the switch position as follows.
1.
With the toggle switch is in the central position the staple out detectors on both heads are off.
2.
With the toggle switch pushed downwards both staple detectors are on.
3.
When the toggle switch is pushed to it’s furthest position upwards only the staple out detector
on the right-hand head is on (corner stapling).
The above is displayed on the legend plate around the switch (shown in figure 8.).
When the stapling head runs out of staples the red light pertaining to that head will illuminate and
the booklet maker will not cycle. The last set will not be stapled and should be removed from the
fold section. It can be reprocessed once the staple head(s) has been refilled.
4.3 Staple Jam :
To clear jammed staples from heads, it is best to remove the cartridge, clear any damaged staples
from stapling head and anvil, and replace the cartridge as described in 4.1.
WARNING - One may clear the jammed staples by operating the plunger manually. In this
instance take care not to put fingers under front-most portion of stapling head, so avoiding
injury to fingers from staples being ejected from the head.

4.4 Paper Width Settings:
1.
Both sides 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.
3.
When corner and edge stapling 8½“ x 11” paper, feeding landscape, the guides are set to the
11“ x 17” markings.

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
anti-clockwise to lower. Tighten locking nut.

4.6 Changing stapling head positions.
1.
To move the stapling heads to the alternative positions, lift the stapling head position arm,
figure 7, then slide the entire stapling unit to the new position.
2.
When moving the stapling head, hold the slide bracket at the retaining plate end, and move to
new position.
3.
Drop the position arm into the new slot on slide bracket, which will align the stapling head in
the new 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, 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.

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
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.
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 staple cartridge from the
left hand stapling head. Then move the left- hand stapling head and lock it down in position
where it is not over an anvil. Alternatively one could also remove the left-hand stapling head
as described in section 8 concerning replacing stapling heads.
3.
Turn the corner/edge stop adjust thumbscrew, located in the second paper table shown in
figure 10 to the right of the right-hand paper width guide, anti-clockwise. The stop will rise
just behind the Anvil bar.
Figure 10 - Corner/Edge stops.

Push the divert plate (part no. 3.71) back against the Top front plate (part no. 3.42), figure 11.
This will divert the set of paper away from the folding section and out of the machine.
Figure 11 - Conveyor setup 1.
5.
Fit the deflector plate, by fitting its hook over the tie bar, so that it rests on the outfeed
conveyor.
6.
Move the conveyor wheel support brackets which are held in place by thumbscrews, so that
the edge nearest the main body of the machine is approximately 6” from the start of the
conveyor. Figure 12 shows which way round they are fitted.
Sprint5000HCS-USA.doc3.doc

Figure 12 - Conveyor setup 2.
7.
Place the conveyor wheel spindle (part no. 6.17) into the slots provided in the conveyor wheel
support brackets.
8.
As a set exits the machine down the Exit plate it should first come to a stop so that
approximately 1” of the tailing edge is still resting on the raised upper portion of the Exit plate.
During the next cycle that set will drop down to the next level avoiding the following set
which will lay on top.
9.
Ensure that the appropriate stapling head(s) is loaded, and the staple cartridge firmly pushed
home. If staple out system is in use, press the staple out reset button. Close Perspex cover.
10.
When hand feeding, insert the set to be stapled into the machine, underneath the stapling
heads, until the leading edge touches the paper stops. The machine will cycle, when the
sensors detect the paper, taking the set through the machine.
11.
When on-line to a desk top collator, running 8½“ x 11” paper, using a KAS conveyor/ jogger
the link bracket should be fitted using the 11“ x 17” bookletmaking slot. The back jogger
should also be in the 11“ x 17” position.

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 remove either or both of the stapling heads follow the procedure
below.
1.
Pull the left-hand side of the spring clip so that the eye clears the pin and swivel the spring clip
anti-clockwise around the actuating bar. This should remove the hook on the right-hand side of
the clip from the other end of the pin.
2.
Unplug the electrical lead from the bracket containing the reset button and lights.
3.
Loosen the small (M6) bolt in the stapling head retaining plate sufficiently so that the retaining
plate can be lifted and pushed aside revealing the trough in which the bar at the back of the
stapling head is located.
4.
Take the bar from the trough and having removed the head completely replace the retaining
plate in it’s original position and tighten the bolt.
5.
To re-fit a new head place the bar at the back of the stapling head into the trough, position the
retaining plate over the top and tighten the bolt and replace the spring clip. Replace electrical
lead.
9.
ALIGNING OF STAPLING HEADS
Replacement stapling heads may be fitted to the Bookletmaker. If the replacement head is giving a
bad staple, then remove power from the machine and re-align the head as below.
1.
Remove cassette of staples from stapler.
2.
Loosen the hex screws holding part no. 2.105
3.
Place the adjustment guide between stapler and anvil.
Align and insert the raised lugs of the guide into the underside of the stapler where the
staple exits, making sure the metal locating pip is to the front. When inserted replace the
cassette of staples.
