Whitaker Brothers, paper handling experts since 1945, feature the Martin Yale 400 Paper Jogger in this brief video. This affordable, tabletop paper jogger is the ideal office companion for paper folders and folder inserters. Simply insert the stack of papers into the enclosed bin, switch it on, and wait for the jogger to do its job. This greatly cuts down the time you would need to wait before the next stage of paper processing. The Martin Yale 400 Paper Jogger is a very inexpensive, economical method of jogging paper. But what exactly are paper joggers for? Paper joggers have several functions. When paper is placed in a jogger, the vibrating action of the jogger works to align the stack of paper. If you have ever tried to align a stack of papers by bouncing them on a desktop, you know the results are less than perfect. The Martin Yale 400 paper jogger can produce a perfectly aligned ream of paper in seconds. Proper alignment is needed if the paper is to be run thru a cutter, folder or other paper processing equipment. Another function a paper jogger serves is paper, when it comes out of a copier or a printer, has wet toner, lots of static, and frequently is so hot that the paper starts to curl. If you attempt to run this paper through any sort of paper processing device such as a folder inserter or a paper folder, you’d invariably run into lots of problems, not only jams which happen immediately but all that wet toner builds up on the fold rollers. This causes problems such as misfeeds, and jams, down the line.
The vibrating action of the paper jogger helps dissipate the static, dries the toner, and cools the paper off. So you can take paper right from a copier or printer, put it in a paper jogger for a couple of minutes, and it’s ready to be run through whatever post-production equipment you want to use.
