Dutch term or phrase: listings
In a brief description of a B-Bunch folder/folding machine (an auction listing once again). The model number is 100 and the width is 510 mm. The description states that the machine is "tvb listings".

Can anyone help me with this term? I can't seem to find it used very often in connection with these machines.

Explanation:
Not sure, but I think they might be referring to rather old-fashioned printer output that is termed 'kettingformulier' in Dutch. The addition of 'v.v. automatische baanbesturing' (= voorzien van automatische baanbesturing) hints in that direction. Groot Woordenboek Industrie en Techniek (Graham Oxtoby) renders 'kettingformulier'as above. Sometimes such forms are processed by a kind of friction mechanism instead of pin-feeding, so it might be better to avoid the term 'pin-feed paper'.
