Easily convert 8.5" x 11" sheets to finished 2" x 3.5" business cards with a simple two pass operation. The BCS 212 cuts 8.5" x 11" sheets into two strips of 3.5" x 11" on the first pass and finishes the job by taking the 4 up sheets and cutting them down to 2" x 3.5" cards. Cutting blades are semi-self sharpening to allow for years of operation without sharpening or replacement. Adjustable paper guides.
- Set machine on a table top. Verify the power switch is set to "0" (off position).
- Look in each feed shelf of your unit, and verify that the tips of the sheet retarder are not in contact with the feed wheels. These are preset at the factory and should not need to be adjusted. Note: If the machine is operated with the retarder in contact with the feed wheels the wheels could be damaged.
- Remove taped accessories from exit tray shelves. These are used as paper weights on top of the stack to insure accurate tracking of curled stocks, or for stocks that require additional control for accurate feeding and registration.
- Turn rocker switch to "1". The unit should begin running.
Tray/ Paper Support Installation
Depending on the model, install the paper support and collection bins onto the machine. A paper support is utilized on the infeed of any bin where the sheets overhang the edge of the feed shelf. The paper support is installed by inserting the tabs into the slots on the front of the feed shelves. Also, for units that make business cards, the bottom shelf will be where the first pass is made and the shelf above it will be where the finished product is created. NOTE: On the 400 series the bottom stacking tray and paper support can be moved to the top shelf for stacking of scored or perforated stock.
