Of course, you should not make any decision without the input of your local dealer representative who can ensure that your current or planned pressure seal form will work with a particular machine, that the machine fits in your work space, and that it is priced within your budget.

Depending on your mail volume, you will want to choose a machine which has the proper speed per hour for your needs and can handle your monthly mail volume duty cycle.

But speed alone is a false indicator since all machines will occasionally stop for misfeeds so you want to make sure that whichever machine you choose has the technology to minimize those jams or double feeds.

Other decision variables include how many sheets the machine feeder tray can hold, how many its exit tray can hold, and whether the machine can benefit from optional an adjustable conveyor.

Depending on your volume and application, you may want to consider the benefits of one of our Paitec USA inline machines which connect directly to the back of your compatible laser printer so the process is fully automated and hands free.
