The Formax FD 6150 offers flexibility and productivity, making it a perfect inserter for any office.  The AutoSet™ is special to Formax and allows for one-touch setup of new jobs.  Press a button on the user-friendly control panel and the Formax 6150 will automatically measure paper lengths, envelope sizes, and fold lengths. Do you have a go-to job you use frequently?  The AutoSet™ feature stores recurring jobs as programmed jobs to guarantee hassle-free setup and operation.  In fact, the Formax 6150 allows you to program up to 9 folding applications into memory.  Three different fold options are available: “C,” “V,” and double parallel.  The double document detection helps avoid errors and multiple documents from being inserted into your envelopes.  Forget the hassle of manually feeding paper and waiting to refill your sheet feeder.  Simply load your paper into the top loading feeders, press a button, and walk away.  The Formax 6150 offers two sheet feeders, accommodating up to 325 sheets of paper in each feeder.  On whole, the Formax 6150 processes at a rate of 1,350 pieces per hour.  Thanks to the cascade mode, when the one feeder is empty, the inserter will automatically begin drawing from the next available feeder.  These feeders can be load on-the-fly to allow for continuous operation and faster production.  This two feeder system is extremely convenient for those busy with multiple projects at work.  The Formax 6150 also features one BRE (Business Reply Envelope) feeder, which inserts reply envelopes into your envelopes if necessary.  If you require a non-inserting project, the Formax 6150 provides a folding only option.  Similarly, this inserter offers seal and non-seal capabilities.     

The clamshell design of the Formax 6150 makes collecting your finished documents convenient and easy.  The Formax 6150 is incredibly flexible and resourceful, processing a variety of documents up to 14” long, including invoices, checks, and newsletters.  The Daily Mail mode is available for inserting staple and non-stapled documents, folding and inserting up to 5 sheets at a time.  Two counters are offered, one resettable counter for addition and batch counting and the other that is non-resettable.  The resettable counter gives you the freedom to select the exact number of documents you want processed, rather than having restrictions.  The recommended duty cycle is 5,000 pieces per month.  Overall, Formax offers powerful and reliable folder-inserter machines, and the Formax FD 6150 is no exception.
