Content Accuracy You Can Rely On

Intelligent

The DS-180i delivers industry leading automation reducing downtime to get the job done fast. The DS-180i records each document at input then tracks every movement until the completed mail piece is delivered to the conveyor. Quadient's Automated Insertion Management System (AIMS) electronically matches each mail piece to the project's mailing data file, confirming that what you wanted to put into each envelope was correctly inserted. If an error does occur, AIMS will identify the mail piece affected, the feeder the error originated from and where the error occurred in the assembly process ensuring you can correct the problem quickly and get your mail sent out on time. Quadient's Impress Automate document creation solution significantly enhances the efficiency of your mail assembly process by automating barcode creation on your documents prior to printing. The DS-180i reads the barcodes to assemble variable-page mail pieces accurately. Merge different documents for the same customer into one envelope to save money on postage costs and supplies.

The DS-180i's FlexFeeders® can feed sheets that require folding and inserts that don’t. These dual-purpose feeders provide you with increased application flexibility by supporting a wider range of sheet and insert combinations, especially when compared to competitive models with dedicated sheet and insert feeders. Automatic fold plate, transport track and collation set-up minimizes the set up time of every mail assembly job. Self-adjusting full document reading allows the DS-180i to adapt to any document layout in seconds and automatic speed change adjusts the speed of the system to the size and shape of the mail piece being assembled.

Always accurate

Utilizing full-page Contact Image Sensor (CIS) scanning technology, the DS-180i can read any type of coding including optical mark, optical character, and 1D and 2D matrix barcodes. Because the scanner reads the entire area of a page, codes can be printed anywhere on the document and can be read horizontally or vertically. This ensures your multi-page jobs are assembled correctly, every time. Our exclusive double document detection technology verifies that all active feeders feed only one sheet or one insert at a time, preventing feeding errors to ensure that all documents are sent to the correct recipient. Our Automated Insertion Management System (AIMS) enhances the DS-180i's built-in document accuracy to deliver end-to-end assembly verification. AIMS confirms that every piece of mail in your job has been assembled correctly, providing complete closed loop, piece-level content accuracy.

The DS-180i will automatically measure the length of your documents and envelopes, adjust all system settings to assemble your mail, then save them as a job memory for instant recall. Intuitive document loading and paper present sensors ensure all feeders are loaded correctly before you start.
