The 6206 Series is available in four configurations and can process a variety of documents up to 14” long,
including checks, invoices, newsletters and business reply envelopes. Two document feeders and one
insert/BRE feeder allow for a number of jobs to be automatically processed including: 1 sheet, 1 sheet and
a BRE, 2 sheets, or 2 sheets and a BRE. Each model includes a semi-automatic document feeder for daily
mail, which allows for various mailings to be processed in stapled and non-stapled sets. The BRE/Insert
feeder (6206-Advanced models) holds up to 250 BREs or 700 inserts.


The 6206 Series processes at a rate of up to 2,400 pieces per hour and can hold up to 250 sheets in each
feeder. Feeders can be refilled on-the-fly allowing for continuous operation. The cascade mode maximizes
production by filling both sheet feeders with the same documents. When one feeder empties the other automatically starts feeding. This allows for a total input capacity of up to 500 sheets. The enhanced folding
system is capable of folding and inserting up to eight documents at one time. Its high-capacity V
ertical Envelope Stacker can hold up to 250 finished envelopes, in their original order.


The 6206 Series has electromechanical double document detectors at each feed station, which are unaffected by dust, smudges or paper color. The optional OMR and BCR allow for the automatic insertion of varying multiple page documents, up to 8 sheets. OMR and BCR determine which documents go together into each envelope, eliminating the tedious task of manually collating, folding and inserting. Advanced scanning capabilities allow the 6206 Series to read OMR and/or BCR codes printed horizontally or vertically, anywhere on the page.

Easy to Operate

The user-friendly color touchscreen gives step-by-step prompts and guidance with job wizard assistance, while the
AutoSet TM feature automatically detects and sets paper length, fold type, envelope size, fold length and double document detection. To make operation even easier, up to 20 frequent and recurring jobs can be programmed for access with the touch of a button. The convenient drop-in feed system and easy- access paper paths increase efficiency and maximize output. The 6206 Series also features automatic water level detection, and an energy-saving standby mode which automatically powers down the inserter after one hour of being idle.
