  • When manually using the functions available with Folding Unit FD-503, Finisher FS-532, or Saddle Stitcher SD-510, you can load paper in the upper tray of the post inserter only.

  • Multi-feed detection is a feature that automatically stops the machine if more than one sheet is fed at a time. The post inserter is designed to operate this function. Some paper type, such as smooth surface paper, may activate this function even if a single sheet is fed, and may stop the machine as a result. Should this case occur frequently, press the Multi-feed detection button and light up the lower lamp, in order to turn the function OFF.

  1. Place paper in the upper tray of the post inserter, then align the guides with paper.

    When selecting Corner Staple, 2 Position Staple, or Fold & Staple, press the staple selection button to turn on the lamp of desired mode.

    If the tray is not fully withdrawn, the machine detects that the tray is filled up even with less number of finished sets than that specified in specifications.
