Description of the Formax FD 6102 Folder Inserter

Replacing the Formax 6100, the brand new Formax FD 6102 inserter guarantees your business will save time and money thanks to its fully-automatic features. This tabletop inserter features three feed hoppers. The two, automatic sheet feeders guarantee efficiency for every mailing project. Simply insert your stacks of paper into the feeders, press a button, and watch as the 6102 automatically processes your documents. No need to return multiple times to refill one sheet feeder. When one feeder empties, the second automatically begins feeding your paper. Each feeder holds about 100 sheets at a time. On whole, the Formax FD 6102 handles 1,360 pieces per hour, with a recommended duty cycle of approximately 5,000 pieces per month. This quality envelope stuffer also offers a BRE (Business Reply Envelope) feeder, which automatically inserts a business reply envelope into your pieces. Instead of worrying about manually adjusting your settings to fit each project, the Formax 6102 automatically configures the appropriate settings.

The Formax 6102 features a color touchscreen control panel with user-friendly, step-by-step setup guides. For recurring or frequent jobs, this inserter is capable of storing up to 15 jobs into memory, allowing swift processing of jobs at the push of a button. The flexible Formax 6102 folds and inserts documents up to 14" in length, including checks, invoices, newsletters, and of course BRE's. In one swift motion, the semi-automatic mode folds up to 5 stapled or non-stapled sheets of 20# paper. Project integrity is ensured thanks to the 6102's double document detection. Its clamshell design provides easy access to the paper path. Finished pieces empty out into an adjustable catch tray which neatly stacks envelopes or folded documents. Weighing only 82 lbs., this compact folder-inserter can be easily relocated and conveniently fits on your desktop or in your office copy room. Its quiet operation ensures little disturbance throughout your office. As a new and improved version of the 6100, the affordable Formax FD 6102 is sure to become overwhelmingly popular for any business.

Q: Can this machine stuff checks that need to be folded? Do you have a smaller capacity machine - we only do 1500-2000 checks a month?
A: The Formax FD6102 is perfect for inserting checks, in fact I would say that's our most common application. This is the least expensive inserter in our catalog, and also our best seller.

Q: Can the inserter/ folder do a "Z" type fold?
A: The Formax FD6102 is only capable of a "C" fold, also known as a letter fold on 8.5" x 11" paper. Very rarely is this a stopping point, or a singular reason to graduate to the 6204 series. The only real important part is that the name and address appear in the window of the envelope (when applicable). The orientation of the fold is usually superfluous.

Q: Do you have a maintenance agreement and how much is it? Also, do you need a bottom folding envelope?
A: You can get a maintenance agreement on the Formax FD6102 and it will be administered by local technicians. The price depends on your location so please call us at 1800-243-9226 and ask to speak with a sales representative. The FD6102 is capable of running a bottom flap envelope without any problem. We always test samples of your envelopes prior to selling a folder-inserter! That way before it arrives at your facility, you have a written guarantee that it'll work.

Q: How loud is the machine, If I have it on the desk next to me will it bother everyone else on the floor?
A: I'd put the noise on par with a printer/copier, which is why most people put this in their copy rooms. You won't want to have a phone conversation while it's running in your cubicle but it shouldn't interrupt anyone else around you. Nothing compares to the noise of people complaining when they have to fold/insert envelopes by hand though! That could be why we have never gotten any noise complaints with this unit.

Q: Hi there, could you please advise whether this device works with pre-glued envelopes (we currently use the Croxley 'easi-seal' window envelopes for our invoices).
A: This equipment works ideally with #10, diagonal seam, commercial flap envelopes. It will not work with self-seal envelopes, you just want envelopes with glue that activates when it's moistened. If you need help locating the perfect envelope we're happy to help.

Q: Does the Formax FD6102 machine have the capability of adjusting the tri-fold on the top 3rd of the paper and also the bottom 3rd of the paper?
A: There is very limited flexibility for fold adjustments on the FD6102. I hesitate to answer your question without seeing an example of exactly what you want done to the paper, but the capability does exist. We always test samples of your jobs before selling one of these products so you'll know if it will work before it ever arrives at your door.

Q: Can this stuff two pieces of paper into a single envelope?
A: Yes it can! The maximum this system can insert running in fully-automatic mode is two sheets and a business return envelope. If you're willing to run it in semi-automatic mode then it'll take all the way up to five sheets of paper into a single envelope.
