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).
