Using the 10-bin

Mailbox/Collator

Using the Control Panel

The 10-binMailbox/Collator is an optional output device available for the printer. It handles all supported paper sizes, except A6 and envelopes, in 10 individually addressable bins at up to 100 sheets per bin.

Mailbox Sorter Modes

There are two different Mailbox/Sorter modes provided by the 10-BinCollator:

Mailbox Mode: Each mailbox bin can be addressed individually using the job destination functionality contained in the printer driver.

Sorter Destination Mode: The mailbox works like a copier sorter when multiple sets are printed. When up to 10 sets are requested, the first set is sent to Bin 1, the second set to Bin 2, and so on.

If more than 10 copies are selected, the entire job is sent to the Face-downBin.

Printing to the Mailbox/Collator

To send a job to the mailbox, use a printer driver to select a specific bin for the output destination for your job or select the sorter mode and then print your job.

Chapter 3: Printing 3-31

Using the Control Panel

Duplex Printing With the optional duplex unit installed, you can printtwo-sided(duplex) jobs.

Use only the paper size listed in Table 2.3 on page 2-26.Do not use envelopes, postcards, transparencies, or label paper for duplex jobs.

To print duplex, select it in your printer driver when you set printer properties (for all jobs) or when you print a document for a specific job.

To ensure that duplex jobs print in the proper orientation, set the driver’s Orientation and Duplex options to the appropriate settings, as shown in Figure 3.2 on page 3-33.

Refer to Chapter 2 for the proper orientation of drilled paper and letterhead when printing duplex.
