About the stacker area

The printed and fused forms leave the fuser area and are refolded in the stacker area. About the stacker control panel describes the stacker panel in detail.

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 is just above the stacker. It contains controls for setting form width, form length, and stacker table position.
