FPi-5500 - Associated Business Machines

Crisp folds, complete and correct envelopeinsertions, fill & start automation…the
FPi-5500 Series is ready to process all the
mail your business generates.
Today’s businesses are moving quickly, and the mailroom can’t miss a beat. The FPi-5500
series can swiftly fold and insert up to 10 pages per envelope – mailings with supplements,
invoices, personalized mail, and more. Intelligently designed modular construction
lets you configure this system for 2 to 6 stations or tailor it for a customer-specific
solution. Compact design and quiet operation make it the best worker in the office.
Multi-Functional Feeder Stations
The FPi-5500 series can be configured with
two, four, or six automatic feeder stations.
These additional stations can be added
in pairs, for up to six stations total.
All six stations can feed documents or
supplements — flyers, postcards, return
envelopes, brochures — for insertion.
• Variofeed Stations process varied documents or
envelope-sized inserts.
• Special Stations utilize a manual material separation
setting to handle heavier items like booklets or
treated (glossy) brochures, and special mail articles.
• Maxifeeder (optional) offers maximum capacity
for up to 1,200 sheets of 20 lb. paper or 325 return
envelopes or brochures.
• Flex Stations provide a customized solution where
the quantity and types of stations are configured
according to the customer’s specific needs.
• Optional Optical Mark Reading (OMR) System uses
printed marks to automatically identify document
sequence and size. This enables the processing of
personalized mailings, flexible control of various
supplements, or exclusion of duplicate copies.
Reverse OMR handling is also possible.
