Relay® folder inserter with direct scan

Fold and insert your mail the easy way with an automated folding and inserting system.

With the Relay folder inserters with direct scan low- to mid-volume mailers can be confident that their customer communications are assembled accurately and quickly. We offer a range of models capable of folding, inserting and sealing up to 3,500 envelopes per hour.

What is direct scan? Direct scan technology scans marks or barcodes on a page which translates into instructions for the inserter to properly fold and insert documents (often with varying number of pages) together in an envelope. Direct scan is available on all models except the Relay 1000.
