Installation Planning Guide
Using small paper sizes in 8-pitch mode:
Printing in 8-pitch mode provides the highest throughput speed
available—up to 154 ppm for the 4635 printer and up to 206 ppm
for the 180 printer. (The 96 printer does not support 8-pitch
mode.) However, you should keep the following in mind when you
select the paper you want to use for this mode:
Paper sizes smaller than 8 inches / 203 mm are supported
only when the optional 7-inch paper kit is installed on the
The leading edge of any paper used in the printer cannot be
less than 10 inches / 254 mm long.
The following figure illustrates the maximum and minimum paper
sizes supported in 8-pitch mode.

Using large paper sizes in 3-pitch mode:
Large paper sizes—widths of 15.31 to 17 inches / 389 to 432
mm—are supported only in 3-pitch mode and must feed short
edge first. These paper sizes slow down the throughput speed
(as shown in tables above).
