Formax 6406 Series Folder Inserter

Formax 6406 Series Folder Inserter
6406 Series, shown with optional
High-Capacity Document Feeder and Production Feeder

Versatile, user-friendly inserter with up to 50 programmed jobs and folds up to 10 sheets (half fold) or up to 8 sheets (tri-fold) at one time

The versatile 6406 Series can be configured to accommodate a range of folding and inserting applications. Models are available with 2 to 6 stations for flexibility, and include a variety of input configurations: a high-capacity document feeder for up to 725 sheets, 1 or 2 high-capacity production feeders, standard and special feeders, and short feed trays.

One of the many user-friendly features is the 7" full-color touchscreen control panel with graphics-based display and automatic paper and envelope presence sensors. AutoSet™ allows operators to load envelopes and documents, then adjusts all settings automatically with the ability to store up to 50 programmed jobs for instant recall. Its powerful folding capacity folds up to 10 sheets (half fold) or up to 8 sheets (tri-fold) at one time, plus it's capable of folding and inserting top, middle and bottom-address documents into top-flap envelopes.** Cascade Mode allows users to link feeders for continuous operation: when one feeder empties, another takes over.

Standard features include a large vertical output stacker which can hold up to 500 filled envelopes, and a top-loading envelope hopper with a capacity of up to 325 envelopes which can be refilled on-the-fly. Double document detectors located at each feeder and the insertion area ensure no double documents are fed into the system. The 6406 Series utilizes electromechanical detectors which can operate with any print density, paper color, thickness or paper dust. Documents requiring inspection can be delivered automatically to the divert station. The 6406 Series also offers energy savings with its auto standby mode, which goes into effect after 1 hour of idle time.

** Bottom-address documents can be processed only in Half and Z-fold modes, up to 5 sheets.
