• The function of the machine is to fold forms to ‘C’, ‘Z’, ‘V’ or double forward fold, either singly, in fixed multiples or in varying groups. Enclosures such as inserts, BR envelopes etc. may be added. Folded forms and enclosures are collated in the collation area in the inserter head before insertion into the envelope. Forms may be inserted without sealing the envelope for subsequent checking or hand insertion.

    There is a batch processing facility, allowing a preset number of cycles to be completed before the machine automatically stops.

    The machine is OMR/Barcode compatible for use with a mark-reading feeder or tower folder, allowing a group of forms to be collated on the track prior to folding. A number of barcode symbologies may be read.

    The machine consists of a number of modules, depending upon the build ordered - these modules are briefly described below:

    • Inserter head - Collates all documents in a pocket before insertion, feeds the envelope, inserts the pack and seals the flap.
    • Versatile-Feeder - Feeds shortform inserts (cards, BR envelopes, booklets etc.) onto the track for subsequent insertion. Available with single feed hopper only. An OMR/Barcode version is also available (top read only).
    • Flex Folder - Mounts at the end of the machine. Folds documents either separately or in groups, using an accumulator if required. Fitted with either one or two feed pods, each consisting of either 2 x 500 sheet trays or 1 x 1000 sheet tray. Uses a 3-plate folding mechanism. An OMR/Barcode version is also available (bottom read only).

    The machine is equipped with PC controlled operating software from where jobs can be programmed and run. The number of jobs that can be programmed is limited only by the capacity of the PC. Input is via touch- screen monitor or keyboard/mouse.

    A daily mail function can be used as an optional feature on a flex folder or versatile feeder. This allows groups of documents, stapled or loose, to be hand-fed; they will then be folded and inserted into an envelope (flex folder only). If other hoppers are loaded, further forms can be collated.

    No manual setting of the fold plates or envelope closer is required, these being adjusted automatically according to the settings in the selected program, except for fold plate 2 which is manually adjusted.

    An optional output conveyor can be specified, to replace the standard receiving tray. This is available in two lengths.
