AR-F13  INTRODUCTION  1-1
[1] INTRODUCTION
1. Product outline
This unit is installed to the following machines to perform the after-pro-
cess of output paper from a printer, a copier, or a fax machine.
1) Employment of the through-type stapler
Employment of the through-type stapler allows to make saddle
stitch by one stapler.
2) 3 kinds of auto staple functions
There are 3 staple positions available. (One position in the front,
one position at the back, 2 positions at the center)
3) Saddle stitch function
Up to 10 sheets of paper can be stapled at the center and folded
into two and discharged. 
4) Punch function (Option)
By installation of a puncher unit, paper can be punched to make
holes for a binder. (Applicable for 64 - 128g/m². OHP films cannot
be used.)
2. Configuration
1.
Before installation of this unit, the large-capacity paper feed tray
(AR-LC5) or the 1-stage paper feed desk (AR-D17) or the 3-stage
paper feed desk (AR-D18) or the duplex 2-stage duplex paper feed
desk (AR-D19) must be installed in advance.
2.
When installing this unit, the duplex pass and reverse unit (AR-
PB1) must be installed together.

INSTALLATION
1. AR-F13
<Before installation>
• Start installation after checking that the DATA indicator on the oper-
ation panel is neither lit nor blinking.
• For installation of AR-F13, an optional stand (AR-D17, AR-D18 or
AR-D19) and a duplex bypass/inverter unit (AR-RB1) must have
been installed.
• Ensure that the connecting plate on the front of the optional stand
and the two supplied connection plates are securely attached.

positioned up and then secure the plate with two screws A.
<2> Put the front cover to the saddle finisher as shown in the illus-
tration and secure the cover with two screws B at the upper
part and two screws A at the lower part (four screws in total).
6) Attach the exit tray to the saddle finisher.
<1> Put the two pawls of the exit tray onto the saddle finisher.
<2> Secure the exit tray with four screws E.

8) Connect the saddle finisher to the main unit.
<1> Move the saddle finisher toward the left (exit area) of the main
unit.
<2> Position the connecting plate that has been attached to the
saddle finisher to the two holes at the lower left of the
optional stand, and secure it with two screws C.
At this time, attach the rear screw to the hole with marking C.
9) Adjust the height of the saddle finisher.
<1> Move the saddle finisher close to the main unit.
<2> Ensure that the guide pin of the lock plate that has been
attached to the duplex bypass/inverter unit is inserted
smoothly into the connecting hole of the saddle finisher.
If the guide pin should not inserted smoothly, adjust it using the pro-
cedure described below.
A. If the connecting hole of the saddle finisher is deviated from the
guide pin of the lock plate:
<1> Loosen the two adjusting part securing screws at the rear of
saddle finisher stand section.
<2> Turn the rear height adjusting handle so that the height of the
guide pin matches with the height of the center of the con-
necting hole.
<3> Loosen the two adjusting part securing screws at the front of
the saddle finisher stand section.
<4> Turn the front height adjusting handle so that the height of
the top of the rib on the front cover matches with the height of
the top of the stand.
<5> Tighten the adjusting part securing screws (two for each of
front and rear).
<6> Carry out work B. (next page)
B: If the connecting hole of the saddle finisher matches with the guide
pin of the lock plate:
<1> Push the saddle finisher toward the main unit.
<2> Check the clearance between the saddle finisher and the
main unit at the upper and lower parts.
• If clearance A is not equal to clearance B:
<1> Remove the four screws that secure the cover of the saddle
finisher stand and remove the cover.
<2> Loosen the adjusting part securing screws (two for each of
front and rear).
<3> Turn the height adjusting screws (one for each of front and
rear) respectively so that clearance A becomes equal to
clearance B.
<4> Check that clearance A and clearance B are uniform both at
the front and at the rear.
<5> Tighten the adjusting part securing screws (two for each of
front and rear).

<6> Reattach the removed cover so that the four securing bosses
of the cover are inserted into the four positioning holes and
then tighten the four screws in the order of <1> and <2>
shown in the illustration to secure the cover.
10) Connect the connector of the saddle finisher.
<1> Remove the screw that secures the power supply cover at
