The Model 4040 vacuum fed folder is compact and will save floor space, time and double your production. It is equipped with Profold's patented "No-Set-Gap-Set" technology, which takes the art out of folding. Gap setting is eliminated. Our patented Prothane Fast Track grooved fold rollers provide long-life and tight folds.

The Model 4040 has a feeding performance of up to 40,000 sheets per hour with 81/2 x 11", twenty-pound stock. It is equipped with a stacking tray capacity of 750 sheets. The bottom vacuum feeder allows continuous reloading and operation. This eliminates work stoppage for shut downs that occur when reloading a pile feeder.

Adding our optional High Capacity Feeder can double your stacking capability.*We have eliminated the need for a register table by feeding directly into the first parallel fold section. This reduces floor space requirements by one-third.

The Model 4055 is primarily a floor model right angle folder, designed to be used in conjunction with our 4040 folder either at a right angle or in tandem and a host of other Profold models whenever the need for a right angle unit is required.

The durable folder sections contain Profold's No- Set- Gap- Set. This patented feature eliminates all fold roller adjustments due to paper caliper or fold format changes. Both folder sections contain four fold plates, which allow many different types of folds. The patented Prothane Fastrack Grooved Rollers are long life rollers with no affinity to laser or copier toner. These grooved pure urethane rollers allow air to escape to produce the tightest possible fold, as well as allowing toner to escape, leaving a clean paper path while operating. The unique cross carrier contains urethane-covered rollers, which provide fast product registration to assure proper product entry into the second set of fold rollers.

The belt drive and sealed bearings minimize noise and the need for lubrication. The delivery conveyor is driven by an independent variable DC drive, which delivers the folded product into a stacker tray.

Profold's tabletop folders provide big machine performance at tabletop prices. The product line consists of one vacuum feed and one friction feed model. All have bottom feeding top loading design for continuous use.


The Super Elite 500 QV model fold rollers are made of proprietary urethane material that gives the rollers longer life. The main roller is grooved in a manner that forces laser toner and ink to the sides of the rollers thereby reducing roller clean-up time. It also reduces marking on most folded product and allows trapped air caught between the paper and the roller to escape providing a tighter fold. The roller material has a better gripping surface for handling a wide variety of media substrate.

The Super Elite 500 QV has skewable paper side guides, a Profold first, that are designed to allow skewing of the guides to compensate for variance in the 'squareness' of the paper stack. Skewing the paper side guides to maintain a square fold is much more effective than adjusting the fold plate paper stop. Micro adjusting screws allow adjustments to be made while the folder is running. The Super Elite 500 QV can feed and fold up to 20,000 to 30,000 sheets per hour in tri-fold or half-fold formats.

The New QV has a new, built in vacuum pump that reduces the overall noise level by 90% and allows for placement of this unit in environments where noise is a concern to the customer.


Simplified design makes the Elite 500 folders easy to operate. The feed and delivery stations are on the same side for operator comfort and convenience. Set up is quick. The fold stop design and fold chart provided reduce set up time by illustrating exact plate settings for all commonly used folds. Micro adjustments allow precise fold settings to be dialed in after the primary fold settings have been made. The Right Angle unit is unique in the fact that folded product is delivered to the top of the unit for easy, stress-free removal. This feature maximizes operator productivity and reduces potential work related injuries.
