And since it only weighs slightly over 30 pounds

MBM is known for producing quality office equipment and the Simplimatic Paper Folding Machine is no exception. Designed for simple,brake lining manufacturers in china table top use, this is a perfect device for churches, schools, clubs and other businesses with basic needs. Easy to adjust manual settings and quality craftsmanship contribute to the functionality of this machine. Let’s take a closer look at the Simplimatic. Strengths: First, compact design allows it to sit comfortably on a desk or table. The large feed tray folds in for storage, taking up even less space.

And since it only weighs slightly over 30 pounds, it can be easily picked up and moved from desk to desk for shared use.Three types of folds are offered: single fold, “C” fold, and “Z” fold. A dial selector on the side allows for quick and easy selection between standard folds, as well as having custom fold options. The fold plates themselves are fully enclosed for quieter operation.A large tray table holds up to 150 sheets for automatic feeding. An additional manual entry allows up to three loose or stapled sheets to enter and fold together. The machine can produce up to 8400 sheets per hour, though if you routinely use it at this speed, your folder will wear out quickly.While the Simplimatic is designed mainly for use with letter, legal, and A4 size paper, items as small as 5-3/4″ x 6″ can be folded as well.

Paper weights from 16lb to 60lb bond easily fold without needing a separator to set for the various thicknesses. The wide variation in density make it possible to fold some cardstocks.Finished items emerge into a small catch area in the back of the machine. The low-maintenance rollers snap out for easy cleaning and are fully enclosed to prevent loose clothing from getting caught. An anti-static strip also helps the machine keep running smoothly in high static environments and when used with carbonless paper.MBM provides a one year limited warranty on this folder, excluding wearables.

Weaknesses: This machine can’t fold glossy or coated paper. Many offices don’t use either of those and for them this machine will work well. But businesses utilizing specialty materials for brochures or other items may prefer a machine with this specific capability.Legal size paper is the largest this machine can handle. Again, for many offices this is more than adequate. However, those needing to fold 11″ x 17″ size documents or larger should look into the MBM 207M with a larger paper size range, though it is considerably more expensive. As you can see from the many strengths, the MBM Simplimatic is an excellent device for companies with basic folding needs. Easy to use functions with good capacity offer efficiency and convenience. This machine will save you both time and money and will eventually pay for itself. We think the Simplimatic is a great choice for your next low volume paper shredder.

Most pieces of bindingequipment come with a 1 year warranty

This past year, Rhin-O-Tuff released a newelectric spiral coil binding machine called the 3250CL. This newmachine was a complete departure from the heavy duty industrial modularbinding equipment that has made the Rhino Tuff name famous. Instead ofdeveloping another putty colored industrial looking binding machine forprint shops, they decided to develop a contemporary binding machinetargeted at professional office environments. The new 3250-CL electricspiral coil binding machine is the result of this effort. For organizations that are looking for a new coil binding machine fortheir office, there are several reasons to consider the 3250CL. Hereare five… 1.

Design:When PDI (Performance Design Inc) decided to develop the 3250-CL theyhired a designer from HP to help them with the project. They wanted todesign a machine that would fit in with other pieces of officeequipment inside a modern organization. As a result, the 3250 looksmore like a desktop laser printer than an industrial binding machine.The machine is simple, durable, elegant and simple. Plus, in mostoffice environments, space is at a premium. This machine packs a hugepunch in a small package. It measures a mere 14″ wide, 17″ deep and 7″high. The small footprint allows this machine to be placed on a desk,countertop, table or almost anywhere else in an office.

2.Ease of Use:One of the main complaints that we hear from users in officeenvironments is that binding is too time consuming and difficult formany of their employees. The 3250 is designed to make binding easier.It eliminates confusing features, adjustments and dials allowingoperators to concentrate on getting the job done. The punch is operatedby one button and the coil inserter is operated by another button. Itdoesn’t get much easier than that. Plus, instructions are includedinside the drawer on the front of the machine for users who forget howto use the machine.

3.Capacity: Rhin-O-Tuff has builtan incredible name for themselves by producing heavy duty industrialmodular binding equipment. Although the 3250-CL doesn’t look industrialit contains an industrial grade motor. This motor allows the machine topunch an impressive 25 sheets of paper at a time. That is an impressivepunching capacity for a desktop binding machine and is equal or betterthan any of the competitive electric spiral coil binding machines onthe market.

4.Warranty: Most pieces of bindingequipment come with a 1 year warranty. The Rhino Tuff 3250CL comes witha three year warranty on parts and labor. Plus, they even warranty thepunching dies on the machine for 1 year. None of the competition offersa warranty that is even close. 5.Made In the USA:These days, most of the binding equipment on the market is made inChina. However, Rhin-O-Tuff has bucked this trend and makes all oftheir equipment at their state of the art facility in Boise Idaho. Inthese tough times, it is nice to be able to buy American made productsand support US jobs.
