DS-180i Folder Inserter
For high-volume mailers
Fold and insert up to 180,000 envelopes per month
Ideal for high-volume mailers, the DS-180i folder inserter is designed to meet the productivity needs of your mail centre. Modular in design, it can be expanded to up to 17 feed stations.
The DS-180i maximises productivity every step of the way, from efficient paper loading to predictive intelligence that estimates when your job will be completed. The 22” colour touch screen makes it easy for users in any department to assemble their own mail. And once a job has been programmed, running it is as simple as loading the trays, selecting the job, and pressing start.
The state-of-the-art feeding technology, IMOS operating system, and Automated Insertion Management System (AIMS) guarantee the right documents are inserted into the correct envelope, every time. Each feeder calibrates the first document fed and checks each subsequent document to ensure there are no double feeds.
Automated job changeover and an infinite number of pre-set jobs combine to ensure the versatility and ease of use of the DS-180i.

The New Standard in Productivity
The 22” colour touch screen and wizard-based guidance simplify operation. Quickly recall jobs stored in the memory or create new ones with ease. Load documents and envelopes, press start, and the DS-180i automatically measures the materials and sets itself up.
Speed is achieved by increased internal processing enhancements and well-balanced input and output capacities. Automatically collate, fold, insert, seal, and count up to 4,500 mail pieces per hour.
The Flex Tower Folder can be configured with one to three stations for maximum flexibility. For secure feeding of a wide variety of printed paper, the feeders use mechanical double detection. Each tower can read both paper sides for maximum compatibility with existing applications.
The DS-180i provides multiple output options to further optimise costs and efficiency. Envelopes can be sorted in up to three directions based on criteria including weight, destination or type of output processing.
