Use the Production Ready (PR) Finisher, Basic Punch, and C/Z Folder to produce simple folded sheets or insert folded sheets into a document.

With the optional C/Z Folder, you can produce C and Z folds on 8.5 x 11 in. or A4 sheets. You also can create engineering Z-folds on 11 x 17 in. or A3/B4 media. These Z-folds are called Half Z-folds. The engineering Z-fold or Half Z-fold folds the 11 x 17 in., or A3/B4 paper and reduces the sheet to 8.5 x 11 in., or A4 paper. This process allows you to insert the folded sheet into an 8.5 x 11 in., or A4, document so that the reader can pull out the folded portion to see an extra-large image.

Important: When you load or select media for folding, position the paper Short Edge Feed (SEF).

Producing Simple Folded Sheets with the EX Print Servers:

  1. For the job, load the paper short-edge feed (SEF) into a tray and program the media at the press User Interface (UI).
  2. Submit the job to the print server Hold queue.
  3. From the print server, to open the job, double-click the Properties.
  4. Set all required properties for the job such as quantity, paper size, source tray, and 1-sided or 2-sided.
  5. Select one of the following:
    • For C and Z-folds, use 8.5 x 11 in. or A4 sheets.
    • For Engineering Z-fold or Half Z-fold, use 11 x 17 in. or A3/B4 paper.
  6. Select the Finishing tab, then scroll down to the Fold area.
  7. For Fold, set the style to the fold you want:
    • Trifold
    • Z-fold
    • Half Z-fold
    • Half fold
  8. Set the fold to Inside or Outside. When you select Inside, Page 1 is within the fold. For Outside, Page 1 is on the back of the fold.
  9. If a message opens stating that the Output delivery is Face down - normal order and should be Face down - reverse order, select OK to correct the setting.
  10. If you want the sheets hole-punched, under Punch:
    1. Set Punch edge to Left, Right, or Top.
    2. Set Punch to 2 hole punch or 3 hole punch.
  11. Select Print.
  12. Collect the folded output from the Top Tray of the finisher or the bottom drawer of the C/Z-folder.
  13. To open the bottom drawer of the C/Z Folder, push the button on the top left-front of the folder unit.
