The 6204 Series brings advanced folding & inserting technology and flexibility to the office environment. A large, color touchscreen control panel with wizard job feature easily guides operators through setup and operation. AutoSetTM allows for one-touch setup of new jobs by automatically measuring paper lengths, envelope sizes and fold lengths. Recurring and frequent jobs run in AutoSetTM can also be stored as one of 15 jobs accessed with the push of a button. The powerful folding system enables the 6204 Series to accurately fold up to five sheets of paper at the same time.

Four configurations are available to meet your processing needs. The FD 6204-Basic 1 offers one automatic sheet feeder. The FD 6204-Basic 2 model is equipped with two automatic sheet feeders. The FD 6204-Advanced 1 model has one sheet feeder and one insert/BRE feeder. The FD 6204-Advanced 2 comes with two sheet feeders and one insert/BRE feeder.

The 6204 Series Inserters offer the power and reliability of larger machines with the ease of operation expected and required for the office environment.

The 6204 Series is available in four configurations and can process a variety of documents up to 14” long, including checks, invoices, newsletters and business reply envelopes. Two sheet feeders and one insert/BRE feeder allow for a number of jobs to be automatically processed including: 1 sheet, 1 sheet and a BRE, 2 sheets, or 2 sheets and a BRE. An optional front or rear side exit tray can be added to maximize operator productivity. The daily mail feature allows for various mailings to be processed in stapled and non-stapled sets.

The 6204 Series processes at a rate of up to 2,200 pieces per hour and can hold up to 325 sheets in each feeder. Feeders can be refilled on-the-fly allowing for continuous operation. The cascade mode maximizes production of the Basic 2 and Advanced 2 by filling both sheet feeders with the same documents. When one feeder empties the other automatically starts feeding. This allows for a total input capacity of up to 650 sheets. The enhanced folding system is capable of folding and inserting up to five documents at one time.

The 6204 Series has double document detectors located at each feed station to ensure document integrity. These are electromechanical detectors, and are unaffected by dust, smudges or paper color. The optional OMR software and hardware (available only on the FD 6204-Advanced 2) allow for the automatic insertion of varying multiple page documents, up to 5 sheets. OMR determines which documents go together into each envelope, eliminating the tedious task of manually collating, folding and inserting.

Easy to Operate
The user-friendly color touchscreen gives step-by-step prompts and guidance with job wizard assistance, while the AutoSetTM feature automatically detects and sets paper length, fold type, envelope size, fold length and double document detection. To make operation even easier, up to fifteen frequent and recurring jobs can be programmed for access with the touch of a button. The convenient drop-in feed system and easy-access paper paths increase efficiency and maximize output.
