What is an Automatic Photocopier Sorter? A Quick Guide

Posted on

When photocopying or printing multiple copies of large documents, it can be quite a task to manually sort them by hand, into the individual collated documents after they have been printed. However, there is a feature on most photocopiers that takes away the need for this manual task. Introducing… the Automatic Photocopier Sorter, which is also known as a collator.

An Automatic Photocopier Sorter offsets the individual bundles, so when you remove the documents from the output tray, you quickly have them ready to hand out, without any additional work required or time spent. How cool is that?Automatic Photocopier Sorter

Additionally, some companies need to take their sorting needs to the next level.

A good example would be law firms that print a huge amount of documents when preparing a case. They sometimes opt for an additional sorting tray to be attached externally to their photocopier. This type of sorting tray, consists of a series of mechanical trays that allow for each individual print job to be sorted into a different tray, ensuring that there is no risk of the wrong document getting into a case file.

Photocopiers that have automatic sorters, tend to also have other automatic finishing options that can reduce manual processes even further. Not only this, but they increase the variety of documents that you can produce.

A staple unit will allow documents to be stapled in a number of different positions and with options for the amounts of staples you would like. Furthermore, adding a hole-punch unit can produce a variety of different punch options on your documents with, 2 and 4-punch being extremely popular choices. All of these options can be selected from the finishing options in the printer browser.

Collectively, all of the above features and functions can dramatically enhance the printed collateral that a business can produce in-house, providing professional quality, speed and complete diversity where office documents are concerned.
