Abstract

The fanfold former shown in the figure extends the upper ends of the tractor door 10 back over the paper guide rack 16. This new path directs the forms 14 in the manner which permits the downfold to collapse into the stack tray 18 and then rolls the upfolds out over the stack tray 18 until the form is fully extended. At this time, the stack cycle repeats itself. This allows the tray 18 to be at the same height as the guide rack 16.
