Profold LINX Family of Tabbers

Profold’s LINX family of tabbers consists of three models; LINXDX, LINX and LINXH. These are all high production floor model units designed for multiple shift operation. The LINXDX is the only tabber with a built-in height adjustable register table that can be raised or lowered to match the passline of most mailroom equipment. The patented bump-turn assembly is used for in line operation with folders, three knife trimmers or other equipment where the product needs to be turned ninety degrees prior to tabbing or labeling.

Profold’s on-board electronic controller governs accurate tab placement at up to 30,000 pieces per hour* single or double tabbed. The LINXH shares the features of the LINXDX, except that it has no bump-turn. The primary use of this model is to run inline with conventional inserters to apply stamps on envelopes. The LINX was designed to run inline with ink jet addressing equipment and/or office with a feeder or other document-feeding device.


  • Patented twist-belt achieves the tightest and most accurate tab placement
  • Patented in-feed Bump-Turn allows the DX to run in line with folders, stitcher/trimmers, etc
  • Patented Auto-Place feature maintains operators pre-set tab placement regardless of product length (at a constant belt speed).
  • 24/7 duty cycle
  • Low tab sensor pauses unit so the operator can quickly splice in a fresh tab roll
  • Accepts all USPS approved automated sizes
  • Slide tab heads over and apply labels flat on the product or seal a gatefold. Apply marketing stickers, “piggybacks” or USPS self-adhesive stamps
  • Unique registering allows the unit to tab difficult products like folded, multi-page, newspaper flyers/catalogs with shingled edges or smaller digest size booklets
  • Profold’s optional stripper extension kit allows larger labels up to 4 ” to be applied
  • Mounted on adjustable locking casters for easy moving
  • Profold Tabbers can be run inline with each other to create a closed piece on three sides

Profold RSC Tabber

The RSC, which stands for Rapid Spool Change, will save customers labor and reduce the time required to reload tabs by the addition of a second spool. By doing this, the operator can load a second spool, which then is spliced to the first spool using just a simple splice. This new function reduces the down time and allows longer production time, approximately one hour per day. This unit easily runs in-line or as a stand-alone unit.

The RSC provides the mail-handling industry with new, exciting upgrades and options while maintaining the shop proven reliability that our LINX Tabbers are known for in the industry. These new upgrades and options include the ability to store up to ten job set-ups, PM Software and Shop Oriented Interface.

Profold Model 4055 Folder

The Model 4055 is primarily a floor model right angle folder, designed to be used in conjunction with our 4040 folder either at a right angle or in tandem with a host of other Profold models whenever the need for a right angle unit is required.

The durable folder sections contain Profold’s No- Set- Gap- Set. This patented feature eliminates all fold roller adjustments due to paper caliper or fold format changes. Both folder sections contain four fold plates, which allow many different types of folds. The patented Prothane Fastrack Grooved Rollers are long life rollers with no affinity to laser or copier toner. These grooved pure urethane rollers allow air to escape to produce the tightest possible fold, as well as allowing toner to escape, leaving a clean paper path while operating. The unique cross carrier contains urethane-covered rollers, which provide fast product registration to assure proper product entry into the second set of fold rollers.

The belt drive and sealed bearings minimize noise and the need for lubrication. The delivery conveyor is driven by an independent variable DC drive, which delivers the folded product into a stacker tray.

Front load design allows one operator to handle both the inserter and folder. The PF 1000 is built in left and right versions so that up to four can be mounted on a six-station inserter. The PF 1000 allows the inserter to run continuously without stopping for product reload.

Profold Super Elite 500 Vacuum Folder

Profold’s tabletop folders provide big machine performance at tabletop prices. The product line consists of two vacuum feed and one friction feed model. All have bottom feeding top loading design for continuous use.

The Super 500 model fold rollers are made of proprietary urethane material that gives the rollers longer life. The main roller is grooved in a manner that forces laser toner and ink to the sides of the rollers thereby reducing roller clean-up time. It also reduces marking on most folded product and allows trapped air caught between the paper and the roller to escape providing a tighter fold. The roller material has a better gripping surface for handling a wide variety of media substrate.

The Super 500 has skewable paper side guides, a Profold first, that are designed to allow skewing of the guides to compensate for variance in the ‘squareness’ of the paper stack. Skewing the paper side guides to maintain a square fold is much more effective than adjusting the fold plate paper stop. Micro adjusting screws allow adjustments to be made while the folder is running. The Super 500 can feed and fold up to 36,000 sheets per hour in tri-fold or half-fold formats. An electronic counter is standard with the Super 500.
