About the forms exit area

The printed and fused forms leave the fuser area and exit at the forms exit area where they go into a postprocessing device or a stacker (when installed on InfoPrint Models MS1, HS2, MD1/2 and HD3/4 only).

On all printer models, the stacker control panel contains controls for setting the form length.

On InfoPrint Models MS1, HS2, MD1/2, and HD3/4 with a stacker installed, the printed and fused forms leave the fuser area and are refolded in the stacker area. The pendulum is inside the stacker area, above the stacker table. The swinging of the pendulum helps forms to refold correctly. The stacker control panel, which is just above the stacker, contains controls for setting the form width, the form length, and the stacker table position.

Attention: Printing to the internal stacker is not supported in duplex mode.

About the stacker control panel

The FORMS LENGTH control on the stacker control panel displays the current form length and lets you adjust it. The following illustration shows a forms length setting of 8 2/3.

Note:
When a stacker is not installed, you must still set the forms length to allow the Auto Load sequence to function properly.
