Formax 6608 Series Folder Inserter
6608 Series shown with optional
Thin Booklet Feeder and Production Feeder
Models are available with 2 to 7 stations, offering the ability to meet your specific needs. Various input configurations include a high-capacity document feeder for up to 725 sheets, 1 or 2 high-capacity production feeders, standard and special feeders, short feed trays and a thin booklet feeder.

Standard features include a 10" color touchscreen control panel with graphical interface, automatic paper and envelope presence sensors with indicators on the control panel, a vertical output stacker for up to 500 filled envelopes, and a top-loading envelope hopper with a capacity of up to 500 envelopes. 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 allows for folding 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- ap envelopes.** Cascade Mode allows users to link feeders for continuous operation: when one feeder empties, another takes over.

To ensure document integrity, double document detectors are located at both the feeder and insertion area to ensure the right documents get into the right envelopes. The 6608 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 without interruption. The 6608 Series also offers energy savings with its auto standby mode, which goes into effect after one hour of inactivity.

Various levels of Barcode Recognition (BCR) and Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) are available and feature CIS scanning technology, which can scan codes printed in any location on a document. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is also available, which uses page numbering in 1/1 or N-of-M format to ensure each set is complete before being inserted into an envelope.

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