Introduction
Omation® Model 306™ & Model 306s™
High volume, high speed envelope opener with optional sorting
capabilities
For more than thirty years, Omation products have been a staple in mailrooms
across the globe. The all-new Model 306 contains significant technological
improvements over its predecessor, the Model 206 Envelopener, which has
been the world’s best selling envelope opening device for more than a decade.
The Omation Model 306, with its ability to operate at a rated speed of up to
40,000 envelopes per hour, contains OPEX’s latest mail opening technology
and sets a new standard for high volume mail processing. The improved milling
cutter with 8 cut-depth positions removes chips as small as 0.01” from the
envelope edge, producing a soft, feathered edge while protecting valuable
envelope contents. Even UPS and FedEx delivery envelopes are no match for
the Model 306. Equipped with a new and robust operator control software
interface, job setup can be done with ease and flexibility.
Most significantly, the Model 306 is also available with enhanced sorting
capabilities as the Model 306s. Envelopes can be sorted to two locations
based on programmable criteria such as thickness, length, and height.
Optional batching capability allows items to be grouped together in preselected lot sizes.
Sorting options make the Model 306s a perfect fit for applications that require
verification of contents either before or after extraction: like claims processing,
remittance, and vote-by-mail. Because of its ability to differentiate between
“clean mail” from “exception mail.” The Model 306s also helps to ensure
maximum productivity from mail extraction equipment by allowing operators to
concentrate on extracting envelope contents from “clean” batches instead of
trying to handle exceptions at the same time.

OPEX documents use the following conventions to describe certain
procedures and situations. Please be aware of these conventions when
reading the manuals and operating the machine:
DANGER: Indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will
result in death or severe injury. The use of this signal word is limited to
the most extreme situations.
WARNING: Indicates a hazardous situation that, if not avoided, could
result in death or serious injury.

Model 306™ User Manual - OPEX Corporation
The following safety labels appear on the machine, and must be observed.
The label shown in Figure 1 is to warn the technician to turn off the AC power
switch and disconnect the power cord before opening and servicing the Model
306. Servicing of the machine is to be performed by Authorized OPEX
Technicians only. There are no user-serviceable parts within the machine.
Figure 1: Electrical warning label
Figure 2: Feeder warning label
This label is to warn the user to keep loose objects away from any exposed,
moving parts of the machine. The moving parts of the Model 306™ can
become jammed and/or damaged by foreign objects. Keep hands, hair, loose
clothing and jewelry away from the moving parts.
Equipment safety precautions
WARNING: Follow these additional safety precautions whenever
installing, operating, servicing, or maintaining the equipment described in
this manual.
• Do not attempt to clean the machine while it is running. A cloth (or similar
material) should never be used to clean moving parts such as belts or
rollers. The use of such material on moving mechanisms can result in
damage to the machine or severe personal injury. If a belt, roller, gate or
similar part needs to be cleaned, hand-crank the part during cleaning or
clean it while stationary.
7
Model 306™ User Manual - OPEX Corporation
• Do not use flammable, high pressure, “canned air” to clean paper scraps
and dust from the machine.
• Do not place fingers in the feed area while running the machine.
• Do not place fingers in the cutter area. The cutter blades are sharp and may
cause cuts, should you inadvertently come in contact with them whether the
machine is running or not.
• Do not set liquids on the Model 306 which could spill into the machine.
WARNING: Unplug the machine from the power source to remove power
from the machine for servicing or when moving the machine.
Ergonomics
As in any occupation which requires you to perform the same motion
repeatedly during the course of your work, it is important to consider how you
perform your task. Always use proper operating procedures when working at
your Model 306. Using improper procedures can result in a potentially serious
injury.
To reduce possible risks, we strongly urge you to follow these
suggestions:
• If you need to use a chair, maintain an upright body posture. Avoid the
tendency to slump in your chair. The angle between your torso and thighs
should always be 90 degrees.
• Occasionally change the angle of your posture for greater comfort.
• If possible, avoid operating the machine for longer than a single 8-hour
shift.
While no suggestions can guarantee completely against work-related injuries,
you will certainly increase your comfort and safety while operating the
Model 306 if you put these suggestions into practice. The Model 306 has been
designed with you in mind. If it is operated correctly, you should find your work
experience comfortable and enjoyable.

Overview of Model 306 Operation
These steps provide a quick overview of the Model 306 Operation. For details
on operating the Model 306, refer to “Operating Instructions” on page 13.
1. The operator loads mail onto the feed hopper. Normally, the operator can
load a comfortable handful of mail directly from the Post office mail trays.
2. The operator starts the Model 306 by pressing the Start button.
3. The operator uses the keypad to login and select the correct operator.
The operator may also have to enter a password.
4. The operator uses the keypad to select a job.
5. After selecting a job, the screen may prompt the operator to verify or adjust
settings such as: cutter, printer, height detect and/or thickness detect
positions.
6. The operator uses the keypad to select RUN, and presses the Enter button to
begin operation.
7. Envelopes are fed from the feeder towards the retard stones.
8. The retard stones singulate the envelopes and sends them past the height
and thickness measurement areas. The envelopes are measured by the
sensors in this area (length, thickness, and/or height) and the envelope
count is incremented.
9. The envelope moves through the milling cutter where the top side of
envelope is cut (if the cutter is set to any position other than Position 0=no
cut).
10. Envelope moves towards the sort gate.
11. If sorting is enabled, the sort gate directs the workflow to the correct path.

Sort Wizard
This selection should be used when creating a job that involves sorting by
thickness, or by length. The sort wizard will set various machine parameters for
the user based upon answers to questions and data that is collected when mail
is run. The sort wizard can also be used to set height parameters.
The user should have an idea how they would like to sort their mail into two
piles using any combination of length, height or thickness. The user must also
have a good selection of primary mail that will be representative of the full
range (that is, it contains some of the thinnest and thickest mail that they would
like to go into the primary pile). For more information on the Sort Wizard see,
“SORT WIZARD” on page 30.
Job Options
This selection will allow the supervisor to modify any existing jobs. Parameters
will be shown on a screen in the order shown in “Model 306 Job Parameters”
on page 39. Most parameters can be set based on expected results, such as
printing or no printing, for example. The length data and thickness readings are
obtained by running the job with the length and/or thickness parameters wide
open, and then viewing the data using the provided screens detailed below.

Figure 65: Audit Trail Setup screen
The optional audit trail spraying capabilities on the Model 306 are quite
extensive. Managing the audit trails is done at the supervisor level. This menu
selection provides the supervisor with two choices: Audit Trail Editor and Audit
Trail Element Settings.
Audit trails define what can be sprayed in each job. A supervisor could use one
audit trail for all of their jobs, share audit trails between a few jobs, or create an
audit trail for each of their jobs. Audit trail elements are provided to help
simplify the setup of audit trails.
Audit Trail Elements
Since both of the menu items have to do with audit trail elements, a summary
of the audit trail elements should be shown before proceeding. Here is a list of
the possible audit trail selections:
• AR - The text representing "Accounts Receivable" will be sprayed. Default
in quotes.
• AT - The text representing "Accounting" will be sprayed. Default in quotes.
• BL - The text representing "Billing" will be sprayed. Default in quotes.
• CN - The text representing "Confidential" will be sprayed. Default in quotes.
• PB - The text for "Process By" will be sprayed. Default in quotes.
• PO - The text for "Processed On" will be sprayed. Default in quotes.
• T1 - User-assigned text will be sprayed. Default is "Text1".
• T2 - User-assigned text will be sprayed. Default is "Text2".
• T3 - User-assigned text will be sprayed. Default is "Text3".
52
Model 306™ User Manual - OPEX Corporation
• T4 - User-assigned text will be sprayed. Default is "Text4".
• T5 - User-assigned text will be sprayed. Default is "Text5".
• JN - The name of the job running during audit trail printing will be sprayed.
• DI - The department identification that is entered in the "DEPT. ID" field of
the current job will be sprayed.
• JT - User-assigned text that is entered in the "JOB TEXT" field of the current
job will be sprayed.
• ON - The current operator's name will be sprayed.
• OI - The current operator's initials will be sprayed.
• B1 - When selected, it will spray a Postnet barcode that contains the year,
date, time in seconds and the envelope sequence number. See below for
more details.
Note: When selecting audit trail element B1, it must be positioned first in
the string of audit trail elements in order for the Postnet barcode to print
successfully. Placing audit trail element B1 anywhere else in the audit trail
element string will result in failure of the barcode to print.
• DT - The month day and year in the format that has been configured in the
AUDIT TRAIL PRINTER PARAMETERS screen will be sprayed.
• TI - The hour minute and second in the format that has been configured in
the AUDIT TRAIL PRINTER PARAMETERS screen will be sprayed.
• SN - A five-digit physical count of all envelopes that have been printed on
will be sprayed. It is updated on every envelope sprayed. This value will
start at zero and count up to 65,535 before wrapping to zero.
• < > - When selected, a character space is entered.
• NL - When selected, a new line is entered. Doing so will cause all following
element selections to be sprayed on the next line.

Barcode 1 (B1) Details
A unique, 11-digit Postnet is sprayed based on the time/day that is set in the
RTC (real-time clock) chip in the machine. The 11 digits in the barcode reflect
the following information:
Table 4: Barcode digit information

Y - year represented by the least significant digit (limit of wrapping
decade)
2-4
DOY - Day of year, a 3 digit number from 1-366

Routine Maintenance
It is important that you keep your machine clean and in good working order.
This will prolong the overall life of the machine and result in longer periods of
“up” time. Failure to perform daily cleaning tasks may result in the voiding of
your service contract. Therefore, it is vitally important that you perform the
following tasks at least once per day:

Clean the Model 306
1. Use a vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool to vacuum dust and debris from
all exposed components of the machine.
2. Clean the exterior surfaces and panels with a multi-purpose type cleaner.
- Use denatured alcohol on areas with stains, if necessary.
- Any non-flammable commercially available cleaning solution may be
used to clean the machine. When cleaning the OPEX Model 306, DO
NOT USE aerosol cleaners or compressed air because of the
flammable nature of many of these products. There is a risk of
equipment malfunction and/or injury associated with the use of aerosol
cleaners on OPEX equipment prior to the operation of equipment.
- When cleaning glass and plastic surfaces, use detergent-based
cleaners such as Fantastic™ or Formula 409™. Detergent-based
cleaners are recommended, because they do not cause component
degradation.
WARNING: A cloth soaked with cleaning detergent or similar material
should never be used to clean an object such as a belt or roller when the
belt or roller is being driven by the system. Use of a cloth or similar
material on moving mechanisms can result in personal injury. If a belt,
pulley or similar part needs to be cleaned, it should be cleaned while
stationary.
- Wipe dust and debris from the sensors. Debris build-up can cause jams.
Accumulations of dirt and debris can cover sensors, preventing them
from working effectively. This will hinder machine performance.
3. Before carefully removing any chips or paper jammed in the cutter, unplug
the machine.
4. Empty the cutter trash bin. The mill cutter chips are collected in a trash bin
located in front of the operator’s feet. The bin should be checked and
emptied on a regular basis. Failure to empty the trash bin will result in chips
“haystacking” up toward the cutter mechanism, preventing additional chips
from falling into the trash. This may lead to the cutter itself being jammed.
66
Model 306™ User Manual - OPEX Corporation
If this happens, empty the trash bin. Then clear the cutter so that no chips
remain, using a pencil or similar tool to push down chips which have
collected between the cutter and surrounding frame.

Replacing Report Printer Paper
The printer will automatically detect if it’s out of paper. A “No paper in printer”
message will be displayed. The steps below describe how to replace printer
paper in the Model 306. The printer is accessed from the side of the machine.
1. Open the printer door. The printer drawer is hinged on the bottom. The
drawer will open and swing down on its hinge.
2. Check to see if the entire old roll of paper has fed through the printhead.
- If all of the paper is out of the printhead, go to step 4..
- If there is any paper remaining in the printhead, go to step 3..
3. Remove the remaining paper:
a. Do not attempt to pull the paper out of the printhead or try to feed the
paper through the printer rollers manually.
b. Tear or cut the paper as shown below and lift the old roll out of the
printer.

4. Place a new roll of paper on the metal shaft and install the roll in the printer
so that the paper will feed from the top of the roll (see Figure 79). The paper
will automatically feed into the printer.
5. If you want to advance the paper further, access the SUPERVISOR >
STATISTICS MENU > PRINT DATA > PAPER FEED screen, and press and hold
Enter until the report printer has fed several inches of paper through the
printhead.
6. Release the Enter button and close the printer door.
