Optimized for booklet on large papers

BrailleBox V5 is designed for printing braille in booklet formats on A3 paper (folded to A4 braille books) and 11x17 inch paper (folded to letter size braille books). As a result of the focus on booklet format the measured printing speed is now increased to 900 A4 single sided pages per hour (equivalent to 225 A3 papers per hour), a 30% increase from BrailleBox V4. Printing booklet format on 11x17 inch paper gives about the same printing speed. 
BrailleBox V5 may supports 11x11,5 inch double sided and on B4 double sided and booklet (Japan paper size). The efficient printing speed on this paper is lower than 900 pages per hour. This because less hammers are used and more time are used for paper handling.
