Formax Introduces New 6406 and 6608 Series Mid-Volume Inserters

June, 2018

DOVER, NH, JUNE ’18: Formax introduces the 6406 Series and 6608 Series Mid-Volume Inserters, which replace the 6404 and 6606 Series, with upgraded features to align with the 6306 Series. New features include a modern, streamlined look, a full glass color touchscreen with graphics-based interface, and paper/envelope presence sensors. In addition, they possess the ability to read OMR, BCR and OCR printed anywhere on the page, automatic collator stop positions, and high-capacity feeders available for field installation.

Ten configurations are offered in each Series to accommodate a range of folding and inserting applications, with a powerful folding capacity of up to 10 sheets, and a high-capacity vertical output stacker that holds up to 500 processed envelopes. User-friendly features include AutoSetTM which senses and automatically sets the paper length, paper thickness, fold type, and envelope size, up to 50 programmable jobs, and an eco-friendly sleep mode which saves energy by automatically switching into standby after one hour of being idle.

Document security is a high priority these days, and this is reinforced with double document detectors located at both the infeed and insert areas to ensure no double documents are fed into the system. These electromechanical detectors can operate with any print density, paper color, thickness or in the presence of paper dust. Documents requiring inspection are automatically delivered to the divert station without interrupting the job being processed.

The 6406 Series has a 7” color touchscreen, a top-loading envelope hopper with a capacity of up to 325 envelopes which can be refilled on-the-fly and is available with 2 to 6 stations. Its versatility allows for processing up to 4,000 pieces per hour, up to 60,000 pieces per month.

The 6608 Series includes a 10” color touchscreen, a top-loading envelope hopper with a capacity of up to 500 envelopes, and is available with 2 to 7 feed stations, including an optional thin booklet feeder for inserts up to 2.5mm thick. These powerful units can process up to 4,300 pieces per hour and up to 80,000 pieces per month.

Options for all models include an internal CIS Scanner which covers the full width of the document feeders and can read OMR, OCR, 1D and 2D barcodes printed horizontally or vertically on the document, high capacity thin booklet feeder (6608 Series), high capacity production feeders, short feed trays for smaller inserts or BREs, side exit tray, locking cabinets, and 402 Series Joggers.

With user-friendly features and a variety of configurations, the 6406 and 6608 Series Inserters will streamline and transform your mailing operations for years to come.
