ColorQube High Volume Finisher - Heaviest paper that will fold in large quantities?

Jump to solution

Hi everyone.

 

I understand that I can make a booklet with 1 heavyweight cover and inside pages of lighter paper...but...

 

What is the heaviest paper that I can use for the inside pages and still have it fold properly?

 

I am using the ColorQube 9203 with the high volume finisher and booklet maker. The booklets I'm making are between 20-40 pages (so 5-10 sheets to be folded).  I've found guides for the trays and the printer itself, but I can't find anything definitive on the finisher.

 

Thanks!

the best way is to contact your sales person and ask for the customer expectation document of your machine...

Hi Fabio,

 

I have done so, but all the documents I've gotten have been for the printer itself and not for the Finisher. I feel like they have to be somewhere on the Xerox site!

 

For instance, this is all I can find on the finisher:

 

High-Volume Finisher w/ Booklet maker: Booklet maker, Multi-position stapling, Saddle-stitch booklet maker, Single-position stapling, V-folding (optional: 2-hole legal punch, 2-hole punch, 3-hole punch, Hole punch, Post-process inserter), 250+3000-sheet tray

 

Thanks again,

-Stryck

Hi Stryck,

Thank you for using the community forum.  There is a detailed specification document that might answer your questions.  Click on the link above and then scroll down to the output options starting on the 4th page.  I hope this answers your questions about the finisher that you have. 

Thanks,

Hi,  I have a professional finisher for my dc-250.  Any chance you have a spec sheet for that?  I'm really in need of one!  thanks!
