be able to carry out the operation of the machine.
When some action is expected from the operator, this will always be explicitly stated, and
where relevant, accompanied by an illustration or graphic.
Always read through each step, so that you will obtain all of the necessary information. Do
not anticipate what you believe will follow in the handbook: It will prevent you from making
mistakes!
Chronology and Reference
This handbook is structured chronologically, and therefore ordered sequentially for the
operationally ready machine. It assumes that the machine has been installed in the
correct environment by an Authorised Service Engineer and that the operator or his or her
supervisor has had a degree of operator training.
When you are unfamiliar with the machine, it is best to read through the handbook from
beginning to end. You will be guided step by step, and in this way you can easily and quickly
have the machine in operation.
If you are already familiar with the machine, it will make thing easy if you use this
handbook as a reference work.
2Safety Notes
For your own safety and the operating safety of the machine, read the following notes
carefully before starting your machine. Always be aware of all warnings and notes that
are mounted or noted on the machine itself. Save this handbook carefully, so that the
information it contains may be available at all times.
The machine is of advanced construction and reliable in operation.
Nevertheless, the device does present hazards when operated by untrained personnel. The
same applies to use that is inappropriate and not in keeping with its intended purpose.
In not adhering to this handbook, there is the danger of

an electrical shock,
injuries from the intake at the rotating rollers,
damage to the machine.
2.1
General safety notes
Caution!
Please, read these notes with care.
Save these instructions for later use.
All notes and warnings found on the machine are to be followed.
Installing
the
machine
Important! The machine must be installed only by an Authorised
Service Engineer. A safe, level position is necessary, when installing the
machine, with sufficient space all round to operate it. The machine is to be
protected from moisture. If moving the machine, ensure that the castor
brakes are off, and push on the stand, not the machine.
Ensure there is at least 1 metre of free space between the operator side of
the machine and a wall or barrier. To provide access to the mains switch, the
opposite side of the machine must be at least 150mm from a wall or barrier.
Do not place surrounding furniture or other objects where your path may be
obstructed.
Electrical
danger
The machine may only be connected to a voltage of 230V/50Hz or 115V/60
Hz,depending upon model.
The mains plug may only be connected with a socket having an installed
protective contact! The protective effect will be compromised by the use of
an extension line without a protective grounding conductor. All interruptions
of the protective grounding conductor, within or outside of the machine,
are prohibited. The device is double pole fused! When fuse failure occurs,
electrical machine parts can still carry voltage. When making the connection
to the mains power, be aware of the connection values on the nameplate.
Inspect the voltage setting on the device’s power input module. Run the
supply lines in such a way, that no-one may trip over them. Do not place any
objects upon the supply line. When the machine is not in use over a long
period of time, it should be disconnected from the power supply. In this way,
damage would be prevented in the event of excess voltage. Protect the device
from moisture. When moisture enters the machine, there is the danger of
electrical shock. Never open the machine except the top cover. For reasons
of electrical safety, the machine may only be opened by authorized Service
Agents.
Operating
safety
Never reach into the machine when it is running! This could only occur if a
safety interlock were to fail.
The danger of injuries exists, through pulling in and crushing on the rotating
rollers. In addition, keep long hair and parts of loose clothing far from the
machine in operation. If a safety interlock fails, your Service Agent must
be contacted immediately!
In order to prevent damage to the machine, only factory authorized accessory
parts should be used.
Cleaning
the
machine
Prior to cleaning the exterior of the machine, it should be disconnected from
the power supply. When cleaning the machine, do not use liquid or spray
cleaners, but only a cloth dampened with water.
Cleaning
sensors
When cleaning sensors use only non-flammable airdusters, eg. part number
E0070A. Other types may use flammable propellants, which could result in fire
or explosion.
5
Allow
machine
be
to
checked
the
by

Agent
In the following cases, the mains plug must be unplugged and the device
left for the authorized Service Agents:
•
When the mains cable or plug is worn or damaged.
•
When water or other liquid has entered the device.
•
When the device does not function properly, in spite of
following the instructions provided.
•
When the device has fallen down or the housing is
damaged.
•
When there are noticeable differences in the normal
operation of the machine.

corresponding to the original parts may be used.
Repairs
Do not disassemble the machine any further than is described in this
handbook. Other than the top cover, the opening of the machine by
unauthorized personnel is not permitted. Repairs may only be carried out
by an authorized Service Agent.
Modification is not permitted:
For safety reasons, your own reworking and modifications are not
permitted.
Please contact your Service Agent, for all questions relating to service and
repair. In this way, you ensure the operational safety of your machine.
2.2End of Life
The objectives of the European Community’s environment policy are, in particular, to
preserve, protect and improve the quality of the environment, protect human health and
utilise natural resources prudently and rationally. That policy is based on the precautionary
principle and principles that preventive action should be taken, that environmental damage
should as a priority be rectified at source.
Separate collection of waste is the precondition to ensure reuse and recycling of waste that
is generated at the disposal of electrical or electronic equipment and is necessary to achieve
the chosen level of protection of human health and the environment in the European
Community.
More particularly, certain materials and components of waste electrical and electronic
equipment needs selective treatment as their injudicious handling or disposing of on or into
land, water or air would represent a major threat to the environment and human health.

Machine Layout Guide
4.1
Description of machine
The function of the machine is to feed forms from a number of hoppers, fold them in either
‘C’, ‘Z’, ‘V’ or double forward fold and insert them into an envelope which is then sealed and
ejected. Further form(s) may optionally be collated with the first form, either by folding
together or collating on the track. Inserts (cards, cheques etc.) may also be collated on the
track before inserting. The machine is OMR/Barcode compatible, allowing a group of forms
to be collated in the accumulator prior to folding. Forms may be inserted without sealing
the envelope for subsequent hand insertion of card, gift etc. Multiple insertions may also
be used, ie. a preset number of forms (or combination of forms) are separately inserted
into the collation pocket in the inserter head. There is a batch processing facility, allowing a
preset number of cycles to be completed before the machine automatically stops.
The machine consists of a number of modules, depending upon the build ordered - these
modules are briefly described below:
a) Inserter head - Collates all documents in a pocket before insertion, feeds
the envelope, inserts the pack and seals the flap.
b) Insert Feeder - Feeds shortform inserts (cards, cheques, booklets etc.) onto
the track for subsequent insertion. Available as a single feeder with one feed
hopper, or tower feeder with two feed hoppers. An OMR/Barcode version (with
one feed hopper) is also available.
c) Feeder Folder - Mounts on the track, either in conjunction with a tower
folder (see below) or as the last station. Feeds and folds same size stationery as
a tower folder, but using a 2-plate folding mechanism. An OMR/Barcode version
(with one feed hopper) is also available.
d) Tower Folder - Mounts in the last station position and fitted with either one
or three trays depending upon option. Includes a 3-plate folding mechanism,
handfeed tray and an optional accumulator and/or single divert bin.
The machine has a capacity for 20 programs which allow combinations of settings to be retained
in memory. Any program can then be recalled later and immediately run, and can also be
changed or renamed by the operator. Select & Go, a self-programming facility is also fitted.
This allows a temporary program with reduced settings to be rapidly set up by an untrained
operator, who need only load the stationery into any suitable hopper. For full programs, the
machine’s software decides which hoppers to use, according to the job parameters - the display
then tells the operator where to load the stationery for optimum efficiency and speed.
A daily post function can be used on the handfeed tray built into a tower folder, or as an option
on a feeder folder. This allows groups of documents, stapled or loose, to be hand-fed; they
will then be folded and inserted into an envelope. If other hoppers are loaded, further forms
can be collated.
No manual setting of the fold plates or envelope closer is required, these being adjusted
automatically according to the settings in the selected program.
A Graphical User Interface is fitted to the control panel from which all functions and programming
operations are performed and which also provides advice messages should errors occur.
An optional output conveyor can be specified, to replace the standard receiving tray. This is
available in two lengths

the machine and begin running. See section 5.4 on the following page for details of
calibrating the machine.
Points to note:
14
1.
You must load each hopper with the default size form set for that hopper (see
Supervisor menu on page 30 for details on setting defaults).
2.
For folded documents, the fold type will be the default setting for that hopper.
3.
The prime (address) document must be in the hopper furthest from the insert
head, eg. if the lower and middle hoppers are loaded on a tower folder module,
the prime document must be the middle hopper. The prime document must be
loaded address side down and leading for all fold types.
4.
There is no OMR or Barcode facility for Select & Go - for this, full programming
by authorised personnel must be used (see page 21).
5.4
Running a job
The Run Job menu shows the currently available jobs that have previously been
programmed (or you can run the last job from the Main menu).
The graphic

5.7OMR Reading
If ‘Mark read’ was set to OMR when editing a document or insert, the following screen will
appear when all other settings have been made.
Note: Barcode definitions can only be created by authorised personnel.
Explanation of settings
OMR definition
This is the name of the setup that defines the function of each of the marks. It
can only be created by authorised personnel and must already exist in order to
be used. Up to 9 definitions can be created.
Read head ID
This stipulates the location of the read head on the machine, ie. which hopper
and whether LH or RH side.
Gate position
Defines how far the gate mark is from the leading edge of the paper.
Pitch adjust
Allows the operator to make fine adjustments to the length of the mark set if
small deviations in the mark pitch allow the overall length to increase or reduce.
Positive figures increas the length, negative figures reduce it.
Gate margin
Tolerance in front of the first mark outside which mark will not be read. Reduce
the default setting of 5mm if other printing is very close to the mark.
Tail margin
Tolerance beyond the last mark outside which mark will not be read. Reduce the
default setting of 5mm if other printing is very close to the mark.
Mark threshold A & B
If marks are not clearly defined, reduce the read head voltage threshold to allow
reading, or preferably use clearer printing. Default is 0.391v; try 0.3v initially if
adjustment is required. Note: The 2 thresholds apply only to 2-track OMR definitions. For 1-track, only mark threshold A is used.
Divert blank sheets
Diverts sheet with no gate mark without stopping machine. Sheet must be between groups; if a mid-group sheet is diverted, then machine will stop with ‘no
gate mark’ error - operator must then intervene. Only one consecutive blank
sheet allowed - more will cause same error as above.
cont.
27
Divert oversize group
Diverts groups that are larger than setting of ‘Default Max. Folds’, set in Supervisor. Defaults are 5 for C, Z or V fold, 4 for Double V fold.
When all character positions have been defined, select ‘Done’ to return to the edit screen.
28
5.8Barcode reading
If ‘Mark read’ was set to Barcode when editing a document or insert, the following screen
will appear when all other settings have been made.
Note: Barcode definitions can only be created by authorised personnel.
Explanation of settings
BCR definition
This is the name of the setup that defines the function of each of the marks. It
can only be created by authorised personnel and must already exist in order to
be used. Up to 9 definitions can be created.
Read head ID
This stipulates the location of the read head on the machine, ie. which hopper
and whether LH or RH side.
Divert oversize group
Diverts groups that are larger than setting of ‘Default Max. Folds’, set in Supervisor. Defaults are 5 for C, Z or V fold, 4 for Double V fold.
Good decode reads
Set the number of consecutive good reads required before the label is acepted.
Set to low number is print quality is poor.
When all character positions have been defined, select ‘Done’ to return to the edit screen.
29
5.9Supervisor mode
Supervisor mode can only be accessed by input of the correct PIN. It allows a variety of
machine functions, as described below.
Language
Select required operating language from available list.
Firmware version
Read-only display of firmware for each module fitted.
Machine Count
Read-only display of the total cycle count to date (this count cannot be reset).
Enable Supervisor PIN
Enables/disables the need to enter a PIN for Supervisor access.
Change Supervisor PIN
Change the PIN to any 3-digit number.
Delete Job
Presents a list of all jobs to allow deletion. When asked to confirm, press
‘no’. Note that once deleted, a job cannot be recalled.
 for ‘yes’ or x for
User Access
Use to set the screen displayed at startup and the level of operator access to machine
functions. If any box is deselected, user will not be able to change or use this function - it
does not mean the function is disabled.
Default Max. Folds
Use to set the max. sheets to fold for ‘C’, ‘Z’, ‘V’ & double ‘V’. (defaults are 5, 5, 8 & 4
respectively). Used by the software to determine how to split a pack for folding. Adjust only
if using non-standard paper, or for other specific purposes. Note that these maxima can be
overidden in ‘Advanced Settings’ described on page 19.
Default Sheet / Insert / Envelope
Use to set the defaults for these items (these can overidden when setting size options in
‘Create Job’).
30
Analogue Sensors (only available if this option is set in Engineer mode)
A read-only display of analogue sensor settings, as described below:
Settings are shown in the format:
abc d.d C or B
The meaning of the numbers is as follows:
a = emitter current value (0 - 9).
b = receiver pot setting value (0- 9). Both ‘a’ & ‘b’ are mostly of use only to Technical
Support for fault checking in combination with other parameters.
c = threshold voltage value (0 - 9). Should be approx. 4/5
If the values differ substantially from those shown above, the sensor is suspect.
d.dd = receiver voltage in volts. If clear, should be approx. 0.5v. If blocked, should be
> 4v.
C / B = clear or blocked
Note: depending upon unit fitted, some sensors may show receiver voltage only, and
whether clear or blocked.
These figures are read-only – prior to analysing them, sensors should be auto-calibrated
and if any sensor fails, it should first be cleaned and its connector checked. Re-calibrate,
and then if failure still occurs it must be replaced by a Service Engineer. The figures may
help in fault finding if failure still occurs - contact Technical Support for further assistance.
When you have finished making selections, press x to exit and save your changes.

5.10 Daily post
Daily post allows a group of forms to be hand-fed, folded and inserted. Up to 8 forms of
80gsm (20lbs bond) may be fed, and they may be stapled or not, as required.
To use daily post, you must first create a new job using Handfeed. Select ‘New Job’ from the
Main Menu and ensure that the Handfeed box is ticked. Note that other sheets and inserts
can also be collated with the hand-fed daily post if required, up to the limits shown in
‘Specifications’. Select ‘Done’ and edit the envelope and mail items in the same way as any
other new job (‘Creating a New Job’ on page 21). When finished, save the job to a suitable
name.
To run daily post, load feed hoppers as required if you have selected additional folded sheets
or inserts (‘Loading Paper Hoppers’ on page 33). Select the job from ‘Run Job’ on the Main
Menu and press the Run button. Insert the daily post documents into the handfeed tray
on the folder as shown below - the forms will then automatically be fed and the machine
will await further documents. Note that the tower folder is shown – feeder folder is similar
principle, but design is different.
Load the daily post
with print side facing
rearwards and top of
form downwards.
Other paper orientations are
possible for non-standard
envelopes - see Appendix A
for details.
When you have finished running daily post, Press the stop button as normal.

6Setting Up The Machine
6.1Loading the paper hoppers
Insert Feeder
Slacken the locklever and adjust the
side guides to give
1 - 2mm clearance
across the width of
the inserts. Tighten
the lock lever.
Pull the weighted roller back and load
the inserts, ensuring they are fully down.
Release the weighted roller so that it
‘tips’ the inserts into the pickup roller. An
alternative heavier roller is also available
(part no. C3656A) which can improve
feeding of thick booklets. This must be
fitted by an Authorised Service Engineer.
Note: A single feeder is
shown – if the unit is a tower
or OMR/Barcode feeder, the
method of loading is identical,
but the hopper capacities are
different.
Tower Folder
Slacken the lock- lever
and adjust the side
guides to give 1 - 2mm
clearance across the
width of the forms.
Tighten the lock lever.
Press down on the tray
and load the fanned
stack of forms. Ensure
that the leading edges
are firmly contacting the
chassis bridge at the
lower end of the tray.
Use the indicator lights
on the rear edge to
orientate the paper.
1. Tower folder is shown; feeder
folder is similar except only 1
tray is fitted and there is no
indicator.
2. See the following page for
setting the curled forms stop.
33
Tower Folder - curled forms stop
Documents that are slightly curled may not feed properly, as the leading edge may become
snagged at the infeed. To help overcome this, each hopper tray is fitted with a 2-position
stop that can be raised or lowered.
1. Withdraw the hopper and pull both of the spring-loaded knobs outwards.
2. For flat forms or forms curling upwards, select the upper (default) position.
3. For forms curling downwards, select the lower position.
Pull both knobs
out together
Raise or lower
moveable stop
4. Ensure both knobs are properly located before replacing the tray.
6.2Loading the envelope hopper
Slacken the lock- lever
and adjust the side
guides to give 1 - 2mm
clearance across the
width of the envelopes.
Tighten the lock lever.
34
Pull the weighted roller back and load the envelopes,
ensuring they are fully down - flaps must be facing
forwards. Release the weighted roller so that it ‘tips’ the
envelopes into the pickup roller. An alternative heavier
roller is also available (part no. C3656A) which can
improve feeding of thick booklets. This must be fitted by
an Authorised Service Engineer.
6.3Setting the separator gap
The feeder separator has 4 settings, marked A to C on the slide. Before running the job,
the gap must be set to suit the thickness of material being processed - this prevents more
than one item being fed at a time. Note that there is an intermediate setting between each
marked position, allowing finer adjustment.
Slide positions:
A = 0 to 0.75mm
B = 0.75 to 1.5mm
C = 1.5 to 2.5mm
D = 2.5 to 4.0mm
(A - C only on Tower Feeder)
Lower the side
cover and move
the slide to suit
the thickness of
the insert.
Most jobs will use
position A. If you
use the wrong
setting, an error
will appear on
the control panel.
6.4
Using the accumulator
If the machine is fitted with an accumulator, this can be used for grouping forms prior to
folding, or for OMR/Barcode grouping for subsequent removal by hand. It can also be used
to hold diverted forms for subsequent hand removal. With an optional diverter tray fitted,
diverted forms can be fed into this instead. The accumulator is located behind the tower
folder. Prior to use, the side-guides and diverter must first be set to suit the width and
length of the paper, as shown below.
Slacken the lock screw
underneath and adjust the
diverter stop to suit the
length of the paper.
Raise the
accumulator channel
to remove grouped
or diverted forms
(where applicable).
Slacken the lock screw and adjust the side guides to
give 1 - 2mm clearance across the paper.
35
6.5Operator settable separator (optional)
The standard separator on the tower folder is spring-loaded and operates with a preset
gap for 80gsm (20lbs bond) paper. Under certain circumstances (eg. extra thick material)
it may be necessary to open the gap, or in some cases to close it. As standard, this can
only be carried out by a Service Engineer, but with some stationery, this may not provide
a sufficiently sensitive adjustment. The optional operator-settable separator allows the
operator to set the gap using a knurled knob on each of the hoppers fitted (1 or 3). It can
be specially useful when double feeding has been a problem with the standard separator, as
it allows ‘fine tuning’.
Where fitted, the separator is accessed by opening the side cover of the tower folder – the
separator is behind an opening.
Set the separator gap to suit 80gsm (20lbs bond) paper, or to a different setting as
required. This is most easily achieved by removing the top tray, and for 3-tray machines,
the second tray also. Lift out the infeed bridge (with cork strips) to prevent drag from the
pre-feeder. Slide a sheet of the stationery into the separator gap and adjust the knurled
knob until a moderate drag is felt on the paper as it is withdrawn rearwards. Refit the infeed
plate and trays.
Turn the adjusting knob
to achieve the required
setting (see above).
Note: separator is shown with black inner
cover not fitted.

7Operator Maintenance
7.1
Clearing paper crashes
If a paper crash occurs, the machine will stop and indicate the position of the crash on the
screen. Clear the crash as shown below, then press the Run button to resume operating.
Insert head and feeder
Raise the top perspex cover and
small feeder cover. Lift the green
latch bars as shown to access
the paper paths below. Carefully
withdraw any jammed paper, taking
care not to tear it. To clear a crash
in the feeder, lower the feeder side
cover and swing the green handles
upwards to access the paper paths.
If necessary, use the green knob
to turn the shafts for ‘winding out’
jammed paper.
contact your Authorised Service Agent.
If a jam occurs at the input of the
envelope or feeder hoppers, remove
all material and withdraw the
jammed item. For feeders, ensure
that the separator gap is correctly
set (see page 35). For the envelope
hopper, if jams occur frequently,
Tower feeder & OMR Feeder
If a paper crash occurs, this is most
likely to be at the eject sensor at
the exit. To clear the jam, it can
be awkward to pull the paper out if
raising the roller carrier at the exit.
An easier method is described beow:
1.
Lower the operator side cover
of the tower feeder, and of the
feed unit in front (if the unit in
front is the insert head, raise
the perspex cover).
2.
Use the green knob on the feed
unit in front to swing down the
lower conveyor, or raise the
rearmost clam assembly if the
unit in front is the insert head.
3.
Turn the green knobs on the tower feeder to wind the crashed document into the
cavity ahead – it can then be easily removed.
37
Tower Folder
Open the side cover and operate
the two green latches to raise the
roller platten and open the dailypost hopper. Also open the top cover
to access the upper part of the feed
hopper. Carefully withdraw any
jammed paper, taking care not to tear
it - turn the green knobs to help wind
jammed paper out of the rollers.
38
7.2
Cleaning rollers and sensors
Periodically, all rollers, feed wheels and sensors should be cleaned, especially if a long run
is envisaged. Use only Rubber Roller Restorer (part no. E0438A), except for the pick-up
rollers on the feed and envelope hoppers - these must be cleaned using only a
cloth dampened with water. Clean the full circumference of rubber rollers, feed wheels
and conveyors in the area of:
a)
Feeder, folder and envelope hoppers
b)
Insert area at the head end
c)
Closer area at the head end
Ensure the machine is switched off before cleaning rollers or sensors.
To access rollers in the insert area, raise the perspex cover and lift the green handles to
reach the paper path. Rotate rollers by hand when cleaning.
To access feeder rollers, lower the LH side cover and lift the infill cover in front of the
hopper. Use the green knob to rotate the rollers for cleaning. Note: after a long period of
time, some inserts can cause a jam with the insert stuck between the rollers - this may
especially occur on coated material. If this happens, open the upper roller plate with the
green latch and using a cloth dampened with Rubber Roller Restorer, clean all the rollers,
both upper and lower. Use the green knob to help rotate them.
Clean all 12 rollers
To access tower folder rollers, open the LH side covers and use the green latches to open
the daily-post hopper and paper path platten. Also open the front cover using the black
latch on the top edge.
Cleaning sensors
When cleaning the rollers, the sensors should also be cleaned by blowing away dust and
debris using the supplied airduster. It is important that sensors are regularly cleaned,
or operating errors may occur. Locations are shown on the following page - note that
each sensor is in two halves, receiver and transmitter. Both halves must be cleaned.
Use only non-flammable airdusters, eg part no. A0070A.
39
Cleaning sensors (contd.)
Note: in most places the sensor or access hole is indicated with an arrow punched into the
sheet metal. Spray the air jet liberally into holes to ensure thorough cleaning.
Insert and collate area
For all positions shown, direct the jet of air onto the sensors, indicated by arrows in the
following views. Note that sensors are in two halves, receiver & transmitter - both halves
must be cleaned.
Open the perspex cover and front feeder
cover, then lift the front-most green
handle to raise the mechanism - this is
held in the raised position by a latch.
For the sensor pairs, liberally spray
the air jet in the gap between them.
Feeders
Lower the feeder side cover and
raise the top cover. Swing the
green latch upwards to raise the
roller platten.
Note: station 1 feeder is shown others are similar.
40
Tower Feeder
Open the cover in front of the feeder trays and direct a jet of air onto the sensors shown by
the arrows in the diagram below. Ensure that all sensors, including those inside the pivoting
cover are thoroughly cleaned as some sensors are located deep behind the apertures.
Closer area
Open the closer cover below the envelope hopper and direct the jet of air onto the sensors,
indicated by arrows in the following view. For the sensor pairs, liberally spray the air jet in
the gap between them.
41
Tower Folder
There are sensors in three locations.
Open the side cover and swing the
lower green latch upwards to raise
the roller platten. Clean both halves
as shown.
With the side cover open, swing
the upper green latch forwards to
open the daily post hopper. Clean
both halves as shown.
Hinge the top cover forwards
and liberally spray the air jet in
the gap indicated to ensure both
halves are cleaned.
42
7.3
Maintaining the wetting system
The wetter tank supplies the fluid for wetting the envelope flaps and needs topping up from
time to time. It is located on the left hand side of the machine, below the closer area at the
output. To gain access, lower the side cover on the insert head. Fill the tank through the
spout until the level reaches the indicator visible inside - be careful not to overfill.
Note: Use only Envelope Sealing Fluid A0276A, as this has been specially
formulated for greatly enhanced sealing and antibacterial qualities.
Fill through the spout
as shown, up to the
level indicator.
Withdraw the tank by
using the green tab
Check the condition of the sponge at regular intervals and clean off gum residues as
required. Remove the wetter tank to do this by lifting the end slightly using the green tab,
then withdraw it. Note: use a piece of absorbent material to under the drain tube
to catch any drips. Clean the sponge under running water and replace the tank, ensuring
it is fully located. After cleaning, or if the sponge has dried out, it should be primed by
immersing it in Envelope Sealing Fluid.
If the machine is to be left unattended for more than a week, it is advisable to remove the
tank and drain it. Wipe dry after washing to prevent contamination.
The tank must also be removed if the machine is moved, and the reservoir drained.
The reservoir can be drained by pulling out the plastic drain tube tucked underneath it and
pulling out the bung to drain into a suitable receptacle.
43
8.
Document orientation tables
Paper orientation on the feed hoppers will depend on fold type, accumulation tray, OMR/
Barcode and feed sequence. The example below shows how to reference the required
orientation from the tables. Note that for most applications, the LEDs on the rear edge of
the tower folder will indicate the required orientation.
Example
Fold Chosen is top address ‘C’
fold.
1. Select configuration from table
1. Note column A (unshaded).
2. OMR or Barcode? If NO, use
table 2. If YES, use table 3 for
OMR, table 4 for Barcode. Daily
Post (table 5) is not an option for
this fold type.
See following page for tables
2 - 5.
3. For chosen table, use row
A (from step 1). This indicates
orientation, feed sequence
and read head position (where
applicable).
Note that for Daily Post, only
configurations in table 1, column
B can be used.
Fold generation requires:
Foldplate 1 set to 1/3rd paper
length Foldplate 3 set to 1/3rd
paper length
Preferred fold configurations are indicated bold and
give correct address orientation in window of standard
envelopes.
Shaded areas denote folds that give incorrect address
orientation in window of standard envelope. Reverse
printing and/or non-standard window envelopes may
permit use.
Note: For some complex jobs, not all paper trays may
be loaded in the same way.

9. General Specifications
This document covers specifications for general data (form and insert sizes, envelope specification and physical and electrical data). Separate specification documents are also available for Barcode Labels and OMR Marks.
Please note that stationery sizes and weights are stated as a guide; specific applications
may use stationery of a finish, rigidity, colour density etc. that are unsuitable and may not
function correctly. Where doubt exists, it is recommended that samples be provided to the
Technical Support department so that running tests can be carried out to simulate the job
requirement. If changes are then required, this can be established at the outset.
A range of special rollers and other document feeding aids exist which can often accommodate problem stationery that other inserter folders may not be able to. These can be advised upon by the Technical Support department.

Ambient light:
Although the machine may operate in sunlight, it is not designed for use in direct sunlight,
or where sunlight is exposed to the machine through windows or skylights. The light-sensitive sensors can be affected in these conditions. It is therefore recommended to:
a) Locate the machine out of direct sunlight
b) Protect the machine from direct sunlight using blinds or similar blocking devices.
If the machine can only be located where it may be exposed to direct sunlight, then please
contact Technical Support department, who may be able to advise on the use of blocking
material on the inside of the Perspex cover where necessary.

9.5 Machine Dimensions
Notes
1.
Allow minimum 1 metre working space on the operator side and output end. Allow
minimum 150mm from non-operator side of machine to adjacent wall. Allow sufficient
space at paper trays to enable comfortable loading and access for tray removal.
2.
If moving the machine, ensure the wheel brakes are off and push on the stand, not
the machine. The machine must be moved on a smooth surface only.
3.
All dimensions are in mm.

10. High Capacity Conveyor Belt CS-2 (Optional)
The high capacity conveyor belt is designed for envelope transport from the inserter or
franking device. The conveyor belt has two operation modes:
• The belt moves continuously.
• The belt moves in intervals. The belt moves each time a
sensor detects the passage of an envelope.
Operating the High Capacity Conveyor Belt
The conveyor belt switch has three position:
• Mode A: the belt moves in intervals.
• Mode B: the belt is switched off.
• Mode C: the belt moves continuously.
D
A
B
C
With the the turning knob it is possible to set the interval distance between envelopes on
the conveyor belt. The distance depends on the type of job and preference of the user.
Minimum interval distance: 15mm - setting for a job with
thin envelopes.
Neutral interval distance: 20mm.
Maximum interval distance: 40mm - setting for a job with
thick envelopes.
Important: If unsealed envelopes are used, envelope flaps must be folded closed.
