Whitaker Brothers, mailroom expert since 1945, showcases the Formax 6304 Folder Inserter in this video overview. This versatile yet user-friendly device is able to fold and insert a variable range of paper quickly and efficiently via its three-feeder system configured in a cascade mode so that as each feeder tray empties, it automatically begins loading from the other trays. It can fold up to 3,600 sheets each hour and chose from among the following ways: C, V, Z, double parallel, as well as no fold, using 25 convenient programmable fold options.
Please note that there are many different configurations available for the model 6304. This Formax 6403 Folder Inserter video demonstrated the standard 3 model 6304, a piece of equipment which has high capacity input and output options which combined with fully automatic adjustments, result in in a very high speed, high productivity piece of equipment.
For even higher productivity, there’s the optional high capacity configurations which include a vertical stacker that holds up to 500 finished envelopes, a document feeder that holds up to 725 sheets, or a production feeder with a capacity of up to 325 business return envelopes. Other options include OMR and BCR, which are fully compatible with Formax mail-docked software. The purpose of this is so that each individual insert gets a varied number of sheets depending on what the customer needs. This is especially used for invoices, where one customer on the inserting list might only get three sheets, another one might get 5 and so on.
The 6304 is powerful enough to hold up to 8 pages in tri-fold and ten pages in half-fold mode. Its versatility allows to processing forms of various lengths and thicknesses all at the same time, up to 3,600 per hour and maxing out a duty cycle of approximately 40,000 pieces per month. The auto-set features makes processing forms a snap by sensing and automatically setting the paper length, paper thickness, fold type, envelope size, and activates or deactivates double document detection, meaning the machine can literally set itself up. The clam shell design yields easy access to most of the moving parts within the Formax equipment, saving you time and money.
The Formax 6304 folder inserter comes complete with an envelope moistener. This means that it’s capable of taking your pieces of paper, folding them, inserting them into an envelope, moistening the envelope, sealing it, and then putting it back out into the catch tray, a complete solution all in one box. A full-colored touch screen control panel combined with 25 programmable jobs provides efficient and hassle-free operation. As demonstrated here, loading paper is fast and easy. The daily mail mode is activated via the toggle switch shown here. It allows you to insert staple sets one at a time to be inserted into envelopes.
