Inserting system

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Inserting systems are machines that insert letters into envelopes . The system is controlled using control characters , so-called OMR codes (OMR: Optical Mark Recognition ), barcodes or DataMatrix codes. This can usually be found between the filing holes on the left side of the documents. There are also systems that work without OMR readings - in all sizes (small office solutions - 15 sheets / min and high-end devices see below)

The users of such systems are mainly insurance companies, banks, energy suppliers, telecommunications companies as well as IT service providers, mailrooms and lettershops. The latter two groups take on printing and inserting tasks for companies and send documents on their behalf.

The fastest inserter in the world, the K3000 from Kern AG , is in the Guinness Book of Records . The system manages 26,000 envelopes per hour, that is seven per second. In comparison, you can create around 100 envelopes per hour by hand, an experienced inserter up to 500 envelopes per hour.
