Fold: Adjusting the Tri-fold-in Positions

Adjust the fold positions for tri-fold-in.

As an example, this section explains how to adjust the fold position to narrow Fold 1 by 1 mm.

• Meaning and Purpose of Tri-fold-in Position Adjustment

  • This function allows you to adjust the fold positions for tri-fold-in by specifying the desired values for Fold 1 and Fold 2.

  • Negative values make the fold width narrower.

  • Positive values make the fold width wider.

  • When adjusting both Fold 1 and Fold 2, be sure to start with the Fold 1 adjustment. The position of Fold 1 is calculated from the edge of the paper, while that of Fold 2 is calculated from the position of Fold 1. Consequently, the measurement 'b' in Step 1 is subject to the change in either position of the fold.

  • Tri-fold-in has two folds, Fold 1 (first fold) and Fold 2 (second fold) (refer to figure in Step 1). Each fold position can be set.

• When to perform

  • When a fold position for tri-fold-in is misaligned

  1. Measure the misalignment of the fold position using a ruler.

    Check 'a' and 'b' in the figure below.

    This section explains an example that makes the width 'a' shorter by 1 mm.

    • (1) Fold 1 / (2) Fold 2

    * indicates the output direction.

  2. On the touch panel of the main body, press [Adjustment] on the [MACHINE] screen.

  3. Press [Finisher Adjustment] on the [Adjustment Menu] screen.

  4. Press [Multi Folder Adjustment] on the [Finisher Adjustment] menu.

  5. Press [Multi Folder(Fold) Adj.] on the [Multi Folder Adjustment] menu.

  6. Press [Tri-Fold-in Pos. Adj.] on the [Multi Folder(Fold) Adj.] menu.

  7. Select the paper size and press [Fold 1] or [Fold 2]. Enter the adjustment value and press [Set].

    Example: Reduce the width of Fold 1 for [A4] (Horizontal) by 1 mm.



    [A4] (Horizontal) - [Fold 1]

    Reducing the width of Fold 1 by 1 mm (-10)

    • Press [+/-], [1], [0], and [Set] to enter [-10]. This reduces the size of Fold 1 ('a' in the figure in Step 1) by 1 mm.

    • Press the keypad on the screen to set the value.

    • Use [+/-] to specify the value to be positive (wider) or negative (narrower).

    • The values are in 0.1 mm increments. (1 = 0.1 mm)

    • With a specific paper size selected, the set value becomes the sum of the entered value and the value specified for [Offset for All Size].

    • Pressing [Print Mode] switches the mode to print mode, which allows you to print the original.

  8. Print the original again with tri-fold-in and check the fold positions.

    Repeat the above steps until the desired fold positions are obtained.
