Brand New Formax 6150 Folder-Inserter Changes the Market

By Shopify API March 26, 2019


f you're putting out over 500 pieces of mail in a month, you're probably already using a folder-inserter.  For quite a while now Whitaker Brothers has used the Formax model 6202 as our go-to machine for any inserting job that is 3,000 to 12,000 pieces per month. The problem was, that's a huge spectrum of inserting volume to cover with one machine! The Formax FD 6150 was released less than one month ago and is already impressing customers as a lower cost alternative to the model FD 6202. It's duty cycle is supposed to cap out at 5,000 pieces per month however we've had fantastic success at volumes all the way up to 8,000 per month. For about 30% less money you can accomplish many of the same jobs. What's the catch? Here are the primary differences between the Formax 6150 and the rest of the higher end Formax lineup. -The 6150 only comes as a 2.5 station machine. Two for paper, one for Business Return Envelopes (BRE's) -The 6150 can only pull one piece of paper from each tray. -The 6150 is not capable of OMR or BCR. -The 6150 is not compatible with productivity boosters like the conveyor stacker or production feeder. So looking at these limitations, if you're inserting one or two pieces of paper into an envelope with no variations, then you are just fine with the Formax FD 6150. If your inserting job calls for differing numbers of sheets into each envelope depending on the recipient, or requires more than two sheets of paper into each envelope, or your total envelope count per month exceeds 8,000, then you'll want to look for a higher end Formax inserter.
