    Optical Mark Recognition (number of pages varies by recipient)

    OMR is used if you mail out documents with varying numbers of pages to people, e.g. 1 page to A, 3 pages to B.

    To do that, you need to have a code placed on each sheet that can be read by the optional scanner on the Folder inserter. All models of the 6210 are available with an Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) reader. This option allows you to send invoices, reports or statements of varying numbers of pages to different recipients. You print them out in order, place the stack in the 6210, and the envelopes are properly filled.

    If you use the OMR option, you can put up to 5 pages into an envelope from one feeder. With the productivity package, up to 8 pages (half fold into a 6.5" x 9.5" envelope).

    How to get the Marks on the pages

    Most people will get our MailDoc software to put small registration marks on each page when they are printed. That allows the optional scanner on the 6210 to put the proper pages in each envelope. Call us for more information.

    The Right Envelope

    These machines normally use a #10 standard commercial envelope with rounded-corner flaps that form a V shape. Envelopes with other kinds of flaps will not work. If you need to change the envelope, we can recommend a low-cost supplier.

    Order process, Warranty, Setup and Delivery

    When you place an order for a FD6210, we want to make sure that your jobs and the stock you use can be handled by the machine. We discuss your process in detail, make any necessary recommendations, and have you send samples of your jobs to the manufacturer. They are tested upon receipt. When approved, Formax will send you a written guarantee that the tested materials work in the machine.

    Upon payment, the FD6210 folder / inserter is sent from the factory. It normally arrives within 10-15 business days. It comes with a 90 day on-site warranty, which includes setup and training by a technician from your local area. If you have a problem during the warranty period, your local technician must be on-site within 24 hours of your call. All parts and labor are covered.

    On-Site Maintenance Agreement

    You can also purchase an annual on-site maintenance agreement that works the same way. All non-consumable parts and labor are covered, and 2 general maintenance visits per year are included. The annual cost of the agreement starts at $920 for the Basic 1.


    If you have been in business for at least 2 years, you have the option of leasing the machine for a period of 2 to 5 years. Approval can usually be done very quickly, normally over the phone. Please call for a quote.
