Only the Formax 6900 Series gives you choices in processing your mailings either today or in the future as your needs change. The ability to process your one, two or three page statements in a standard #10 envelopes and the ability to process up to 50 page sets, thin booklets or any marketing collateral which should not be folded to produce a professional look is important to every business. The optional electronic sorting system sorts inserted envelopes into different stacks based on OMR, envelope, size, thickness batch count or seal / non-seal for easier handling and preparation of mixed mail.


The 6900 Series is the best choice for medium and high-volume organizations with a wide array of mailing needs. AutoMix technology offers the ability to switch envelope sizes on the fly based on the number of inserts. For example, when processing invoices with a varying number of inserts, a four page invoice would be folded and inserted into a #10 envelope and a twelve page invoice would be inserted into a flat envelope eliminating pre-sorting, manual set-up and hand stuffing envelopes. Two divert bins on the OMR and AutoMix models allow for increased throughput by diverting misreads to one bin and customer specific sets to the second bin without interrupting operation. The optional FD 6900-25 feeder allows for feeding and insertion of thin booklets and brochures. User Friendly Control Panel


Double-document detectors are located at the feeder and at the insertion area to ensure that no double documents are fed into the system. The 6900 Series utilizes electromechanical detectors which can operate with any print density, paper color, thickness or paper dust. Optional dual track OMR offers security by reading the same number of marks on each page, thereby virtually eliminating the chance of pages getting into the wrong envelope.
