A high-capacity document feeder for up to 725 sheets, a high-capacity production feeder, standard and special feeders, and short feed trays are a sample of some of the possible configurations. Users can store up to 50 jobs configurations, using the full-color touchscreen for efficient and hassle-free set-up and operation.

Variable page insertion with CIS scanning technology that covers the full width of the document feeders and accurately reads OMR, 1D and 2D barcodes printed in any location on a document.

  1. Use Sealing Fluid: Not using sealing fluid will result in rust and mold. Click here to Order
  2. Problem Envelopes: If you’re suddenly having trouble running a job, take a close look at the envelopes! Odd envelopes with strange deep or odd flaps tend to cause a problem.
  3. Paper Multyfeed: At times recently printed paper can have a lot of static buildups causing the pages to stick together. If you can not eliminate the static when printed call us for a Paper Jogger
  4. Paper Trays: The machine is mainly made of metal, except standard trays, be careful with the trays
