Automated, Accurate Mail Assembly You Can Rely On


The DS-200iQ guarantees the right documents are inserted into the correct envelope, every time. The DS-200iQ 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-200iQ 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.


Accommodates variety

The DS-200iQ document feeders accommodate a wide variety of material combinations from sheets up to 16” long to short inserts. Process variable page document sets of up to 50 pages and insert documents into flats or standard business envelopes. The DS-200iQ'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-200iQ 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. Expandable up to 11 feed stations and available with up to three exits to meet your needs.

Always accurate

Utilizing full-page Contact Image Sensor (CIS) scanning technology, the DS-200iQ 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-200iQ'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.


Easy to use

A 22” color touch screen with wizard-based guidance, simplifies operation. Quickly recall stored jobs or create new jobs with ease. Quadient's Load n' Go automatic job set up feature makes job preparation a breeze. Simply load your documents and envelopes, then press the start button. The DS-200iQ 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. Our intelligent collation technology automatically measures the length of each document to ensure it is positioned correctly in collator to achieve the perfect fold, every time.

easy to use


Through high speed LAN or wireless internet connection, activate the DS-200iQ's embedded remote assistance and remote control features to access on-demand technical support right from the touchscreen. Remote assistance and remote control allow Quadient Service Technicians to view and share control of the user screen in order to guide you through an issue to resolution.



The DS-200iQ’s dynamic envelope printing solution allows you to personalize envelopes as part of the mail assembly process. When printing in matched mode, each document is recorded by the DS-200Qi at the input stage. Once the documents have been folded and inserted, the system prints the matched name and address on the closed face envelope. Dynamic envelope printing lowers your envelope costs by eliminating the need for windowed envelopes and further ensures content accuracy by integrating the address process into your mail assembly process.
