It handles DL to C5 envelopes, inserting at speeds of up to 7,200 completed envelopes per hour.

Designed and manufactured in Britain, it is available in a number of configurations with a host of features.

Each insert station has miss, double and jam detectors. There are further sensors throughout the machine to check the path of the documents through the system. Any error automatically stops the machine and the location is displayed on the screen.

A choice of touch screens are available that controls the machine operation. The screens give station selection, speed control, re-settable counter, help pages, output speed and error location display.

A variety of end feeders can be added to feed and fold cut sheet or continuous forms, with or without reading facility, and giving the choice of folding separately or nest folding.

Optical Mark reading, 1D and 2D Barcode reading or OCR are available to facilitate batching of the prime document, selection of inserts and Mailsort batching

Insert stations can handle a wide variety of material including single sheets, card, reply envelopes, pre-loaded items, stapled sets, cd's and book.

Fast Sheet Feeders can feed, accumulate and insert flat for C4, or fold and insert for DL and C5 according to codes read on the documents.

Our camera reading system adds more flexibilty as it reads OMR, 1D and 2D barcodes in either orientation on the page. Jobs can be pre-programmed thus minimising set up time.

Our reading technology facilitates batching the prime document, selection of inserts, merging and matching of two or more streams of personalsied documentation, diverting of filled envelopes before sealing, envelope marking, document tracking and integrity checking.
