Formax FD 290 System

The FD 290 Crash and Edge 90-Degree Tabbing System combines the FD 280 Double-Head Edge Tabber and FD 260 Single-Head Crash Tabber for one-pass tabbing of booklets and virtually all other tabbing jobs. The FD 290 applies edge and top tabs in a single pass, processing up to 15,000 pieces per hour. It has the unique ability to easily change between 1” and 1.5” tabs, simply by flipping a switch, plus, tabs can be fed fan-folded or from rolls for higher volume.

A variety of tab stocks can be used, including clear, translucent and paper, with built-in waste take-up spools to reduce down time. The FD 290 can also be used in-line with other tabletop labelers, feeders, and printers.


Options include the
FD 280-10 Heavy Duty Feeder, capable of feeding a stack of up to 12” of material to be tabbed, the FD 280-20 High Volume Tab Delivery Module which reduces down-time by feeding rolls of up to 75,000 tabs, and the FD 260-20 Conveyor which stacks tabbed pieces in a neat, sequential order for easy removal.
