The Formax FD 6104 folder inserter is a cost-effective entry-level tabletop inserter that is a perfect fit for office mailings! The FD 6104 is equipped with the latest technology, like it’s 5″ full-color touchscreen display, making it possible for any small office to enjoy the benefits of automated folding and inserting.

Are you mailing 1 sheet of paper like an invoice? Consider switching to a pressure sealer and skip the envelope! 

Formax FD 6104 is equipped with wizard-based software which guides operators through setup and operation. This smart display and software provide quick access to saved jobs, right on the home screen. A quick glimpse of the bold icons and you know the status of each feeder, like the paper size. You can save up to 15 jobs for instant, one-touch operation.

This little office saver comes equipped with two fully-automatic sheet feeders and one automatic insert/BRE feeder, offering a range of folding and inserting capabilities. The FD 6102 will processes documents up to 14” in length, at up to 1,350 envelopes per hour. Ensure each envelope contains the correct number of documents by using Electromagnetic double document detection. This smart little unit saves electricity by switching to energy saving mode after being idle for one hour.

Do you need to produce even-panel C-folded documents without an envelope? This feature is ideal for brochures and marketing pieces which don’t require an envelope? A Tri-Fold Kit is available! The kit is easily installed without tools, simply by swapping out the moistener kit.

Please note, just like every inserter on the market, the FD 6104 will not work with junky envelopes! If you are not sure, ask your product specialists or envelope dealer. The most common problem we come across is deep cut envelopes with huge flaps. They will not work.

STOP wasting valuable time and money manually folding and inserting. Automate your mailings with the Formax FD 6104 folder inserter and maximize your company’s efficiency.
