The main function of a paper jogger is to provide low doses
of friction in a vibrating motion to align various grades of paper and
stock. Each jogging machine has a different rate of vibration to match the
grade and size of the material it needs to align. Joggers settle
pre-packed materials before being displayed in department stores, on
hanging racks or shelves. They align large quantities of newspapers or
magazines prior to bundling for mass distribution and prepare inserts
found in the morning paper. Banks, accounting offices, and financial
institutions clearly understand the need for paper joggers; stacks of
checks, payments, and receipts can quickly stack up and easily slip off,
becoming lost. Paper joggers apply the necessary friction to either
separate checks to avoid sticking or can align the material together,
bundling for storage.
Joggers improve the speed and efficiency of your postal applications in
mailrooms and post offices by quickly aligning mail before processing.
Small to large volumes can be settled prior to being run through
various mail-handling machinery. Even researchers at large corporations
are using joggers to test circuit breakers, electronic equipment and more
to determine its reliability in adverse conditions.
A good tip for anyone buying a jogger, or any office device,
is to take a minute, sit down, and write out what you will want your
machine to do and what kinds of things are important to you. Ask yourself
the who, what, when and where’s and set out on paper what kinds of things
you expect your machine to do, or envision the machine doing when the
package arrives and you first open the box. This will give you a firm
place to start. Knowing exactly what you want or need is a good first
- What type of material are you going to jog?
Whatever material you need to jog, you must first make sure that the
machine you buy is able to jog that particular material.
- What quantity of material would you like to have jogged at one
- How fast would you like the machine to jog?
- How big are the materials you are going to jog?
Different size racks, platforms, pockets and bins handle different
size and weight materials.
Now, to save some time there is a quick reference to place your
industries needs with the right machine. This is in no way all inclusive
and if you have a question about a specific jogger and want to know if it
can handle your day-to-day operations, feel free to contact a sales
representative here at Machine Advantage. Joggers are constantly evolving and
entering new fields, growing at the rate of new technology; maybe you’ll
find a new use for joggers, too.
