My spec brochure for the Booklet Maker Finisher states the maximum 25 sheet / 100 imposed page on 20 lb / 75 gsm media. Is there a list anywhere that states these values for all the various paper weights / types and combinations that can be saddle-stitched?
I was testing a 68 page document and wanted to print it to 80 lb text coated but my C60 wouldn't print it unless I changed the paper settings to Plain [80 - 90 gsm].
It would be handy to have a list readily at hand to know which combinations weights I could print at a glance.
The Booklet Tray will handle up to 20 sets of a maximum of 25 uncoated sheets (20lb
75gsm)/20 sets of a maximum 20 uncoated sheets (24lb 90gsm). The Booklet Tray
will also handle10 coated/uncoated stapled sheets per set at 106 - 176 gsm/ 5 uncoated stapled sheets per set at 177-220 gsm, and can accommodate up to 13”x18” / SRA3 media. (Note: larger media will
result in reduced output tray capacity).
Your job would be 17 sheets coated 180GSM which is nowhere even close to specs for folding. Even without the Gloss/Coated you would be sitting around 5 folded sheets.
WARNING, THE FOLLOWING IS OLD DATA FROM THE PREVIOUS GENERATION OF FINISHER. THE NUMBERS MAY NOT BE IDENTICAL SO TAKE THE WHOLE TABLE WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. EVERYTHING FROM HERE ON MAY BE INCORRECT, BUT THE DOCUMENTATION OF YESTERYEAR IS VASTLY BETTER TO LOOK AT ;-)
I actually used to print that chart and tape it down right on the top of our D series finishers so I always could find it. As far as I know, no such chart is available for the new series of finisher.
Good morning, Any chance you have a "capabilities" sheet for a professioinal finisher hooked up to a dc250?
The table above is for the D series finisher that was sold with the 250, it was also sold with the 260/560/700/770/C75/4110/4127/459X product families and more (Finishers don't really require much for advancement so they stay current for multiple generations.
Here is the DC240/250 CED as supplied with the devices back in ye olde 2007
