Introducing the Formax FD 6102 Envelope Inserting Machine

Formax FD 6102 Envelope Inserting MachineWhen it comes to automated mailing equipment, few manufactures come close to what Formax has to offer. Formax’s line of envelope stuffing machines, often called folder inserters, are excellent for mass mailing invoices, newsletters, promotional material and much more. We are happy to announce that we have just added their latest machine, the Formax FD 6102 (found here), to our site.

Folding and inserting machines are often a bit of an investment for a business. Formax, who manufactures some of the best medium and high-volume machines, also makes a great entry-level machine. The FD-6102 is a desktop envelope-stuffing machine that replaces both the FD-6100 and the FD-6150. This machine has a duty-cycle of about 5,000 pieces per month (at a rate of 1,360 per hour) and is a huge improvement over manually folding and inserting paper into envelopes.

One of the biggest improvements you will find with the FD-6102, over previous versions, is the touch-screen interface. This interface, which happens to be in color, is easy to navigate and makes setting up the type of folds and easy to do. A step-by-step job wizard helps guide you through the setup process. This machine will also allow you to set up, name and store 15 frequent jobs, making setup even easier later down the road.

An enhanced feeder design helps to make paper feeding more seamless and toner resistant fold rollers help cut down on jams. This, however, doesn’t mean that this machine, which uses friction rollers, will work with all glossy or coated paper. If you will be using glossy or coated paper, please send in samples for testing purposes.

Each of the feed trays can hold up to 100 sheets of 20# bond paper, the BRE / Insert tray can hold up to 100 pieces and the envelope hopper holds up to 100 outgoing envelopes at a time. If needed, the 2 sheet feeders can be linked together, doubling the sheet capacity to 200. When the first feed tray (100 capacity) empties, it will then move on to the second feed tray (in linked mode). In the event that you don’t what to set up any special jobs, you can simply manually feed a stack of up to 5 sheets via the drop-in feed system.

This machine will automatically, depending on the feed trays being used, pull a sheet off of each sheet and BRE feeder, fold them and insert them into an envelope. It will even seal the envelopes shut. The sealing function can be turned off if you prefer to leave your envelopes open.

In comparison to other folding and inserting machines out there, the FD 6102 is remarkably quiet. This makes it great for use in the office, in a mailing room or other location where people work.

This machine can be used with #10, #9 and 6″x9″ envelopes. It can be used with paper up to 14″ long and will create letter, half and double parallel folds. As documents leave this machine, the catch tray can be adjusted to accommodate the various sizes of envelopes that you are using.
