I would rate this a 0/10 stars if it gave me the option. I had very limited time to fold 1,000 brochures. Seeing this product online was some sort of miracle. After picking it up from the warehouse, I got back to the office and halfway through the brochures, the machine quit workingl. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

The Intimus 2051 folder works well with 90lb Index paper. There is no fanning of 20 sheets and holding the paper to make it feed as with the Dynafold 322af. It will literally holdover 200 sheets at a time and is crisper folding than the previously mentioned machine.
While the word quiet can never be mentioned in the same sentence with a paper folder, the 2051 is much quieter than the Dynafold and the duplo machine which I previously used.
Overall the 2051 is nearly idiot proof. The folding plates are easy to install and remove. The only difficult action is the micro adjustments to make your folds turn out as you want them if the standard folds on the machine do not match your exact fold.
It only takes about 10 minutes or so of playing with the machine to get the perfect settings. The new settings are very east to save and recall once you use them.
Currently I am very pleased with this purchase and it is worth the extra money to get an automated machine.The rollers do need to be kept clean. Especially the small roller that pulls the paper in from the feed tray.

Latest Question and Answers

Can this paper folder do a double 90 degree fold? Meaning once over to fold in half and then again to fold in half?
asked by Laurie on June 13, 2014

Double Parallel Fold
Half Fold
Half Fold
The 2051 offers two types the folds: the double parallel and the half fold. I think the double parallel is the style you want The paper is folded in half once, then folded in half again.

Cleaning instructions, please.
asked by Yvonne on March 7, 2014

Hi Yvonne,

Thank you for your question about cleaning the 1217A Martin Yale Paper Folder.

Here is a step -by-step guide to cleaning your folding machine. They are also available for download and print.

  1. Remove the Roller Cover by removing the 2 Allen head screws with a 5/32” allen wrench. ( the cover on top with the sticker that says “for best result”)127a Folding Machine Cleaning Instructions
  2. Remove the feed tray and the second fold table.
  3. Spray the rollers with Martin Yale Rubber Roller Cleaner
  4. Scrub all the rollers with a Scotch Brite Pad, the green kind for posts and pans. 
    • ‚ÄčThe feed roller is made of a softer rubber, so take care not to scrub this roller too aggressively.

  5. Dry all rollers with a clean, lint free cotton cloth.
  6. Reinstall fold table and feed tray.

 The 1217A Folding Machine Survival Kit includes the rubber roller cleaner and cleaning pad, as well as a spare feed wheel, o-ring and retarder. Those parts wear out over time and aren't covered under warranty, so it's a good idea to keep them on hand. 

Hope this answers your question!

Can this folder handle index card stock?
asked by Eileen on March 6, 2014

Hi Eileen,


Thank you for your question about the 1217A Medium Duty AutoFolder Folding Machine.


This folding machine can handle card stock with up to a 135 lb. paper weight. Most index card stock paper is around 110 lb., well within the 1217A's capabilities. Still, I recommend you double check your paper's weight. Most manufacturers list that information on the packaging. 


Hope this answers your question!

Can this fold A4 paper?
asked by Vincent on March 6, 2014

Hi Vincent,

Thank you for your question about the Martin Yale 1217A Paper Folder. 

This folding machine can fold A4 paper (8.3" x 11.7"). In fact, this machine can fold paper as large as 12" x 18", and as small as 4" x 4".

Hope this answers your question!
