For high-volume mailers

Fold and insert up to 180,000 envelopes per month

Ideal for high-volume mailers, the DS-180i folder inserter is designed to meet the productivity needs of your mail center. Modular in design, it can be expanded to up to 17 feed stations to ensure you always have the capacity to meet the requirements of your business.

The DS-180i maximizes productivity every step of the way, from efficient paper loading to predictive intelligence that estimates when your job will be completed. The 22” color touch screen is designed for simplicity, making it easy for users in any department to assemble their own mail. And once a job has been programmed into memory, running it is as simple as loading the trays, selecting the job, and pressing start.

When assembling mail with variable pages, the DS-180i’s state-of-the-art feeding technology, IMOS operating system, and Automated Insertion Management System (AIMS) guarantee the right documents are inserted into the correct envelope, every time. Each feeder calibrates the first document fed and checks each subsequent document to ensure there are no double feeds.

Automated job changeover and an infinite number of pre-set jobs combine to ensure the versatility and ease of use of the DS-180i.

The 22” color touch screen and wizard-based guidance simplify operation. Quickly recall stored jobs or create new ones with ease. Load documents and envelopes, press start, and the DS-180i automatically measures the materials and sets itself up.


Speed is achieved by increased internal processing enhancements and well-balanced input and output capacities. Automatically collate, fold, insert, seal, and count up to 4,500 mail pieces per hour.


The Flex Tower Folder can be configured with one to three stations for maximum flexibility. For secure feeding of a wide variety of printed paper, the feeders use mechanical double detection. Each tower can read both paper sides for maximum compatibility with existing applications.


The DS-180i provides multiple output options to further optimize costs and efficiency. Envelopes can be sorted in up to three directions based on criteria including weight, destination or type of output processing.
