1. Term Description
    Address carrier The address carrier is the document that carries the address of the person for who the mail set is meant. The address carrier can consist of one or more sheets, from which at least the frst sheet must contain the address. The address must remain visible while enclosures are added and the document set is folded. The fold type and selected envelope must ensure that the address is visible behind the window in the envelope. For personalized mailings there is always an address carrier present as long as envelope printing is not supported. Normally there is one address carrier.
    Address position

     

    Position of the address on the address carrier, measured from the upper left corner. The address position consists of a horizontal x coordinate, a vertical y coordinate, a horizontal width w and a vertical height h.

    Automatic The feature of an inserting system to automatically determine its job settings by measuring the sizes of documents and envelope. From all feeders that are loaded one sheet will be taken. Based on the maximum document length (which is also the length of the document set) and the length of the envelope the fold type is determined.
    Automatic job A job that is created with the Automatic job functionality.
    Barcode Reading (BCR) Barcode Reading is intended for reading and interpreting printed barcodes. The codes give information to the inserting system about how to build-up and handle a set.
    Business Reply Envelope (BRE) Envelope included in outgoing mail sets for addressee response purposes.
    Cascading See Feeder linking.
    C-fold See Letter fold.
    Daily Mail Capability of an inserting system to manually insert mail sets one by one into the system, which are then inserted into an envelope. Optionally, depending on settings, additional enclosures can be added and the mail set can be folded. This function is intended for small amounts of mail that each can have a different build-up.
    Deskew A system of straightening a skewed document or enclosure by driving it into a set of drive rollers that have been briefly stopped. This removes the skew, and after a set period of time, the rollers restart. Deskew slows the machine down and can be disabled or adjusted for amount of deskew for forms that are not prone to skewing.
    Document A document is one of the components of a mail set. A document can consist of one or more sheets. Documents can be divided into address carriers and enclosures. For personalized mailings there is always one address carrier and an optional number of enclosures.
    Document set The document set is the physical collection of address carrier and enclosure(s) that is under production in the inserting system. The document set is completed during production and is to be inserted into the envelope. The number of enclosures can range from 0 to the limit imposed by the number of available feeders, whilst observing the overall pack thickness. Once the document set has been inserted into an envelope it is called mail set.
    Double Document Detection Double Document Detection is the sensor that measures the thickness of a sheet to check if the inserting system does not accidentally take more sheets than intended. DD sensors exist on feeders (double sheet detection). Currently DD detection on Neopost inserting systems perform relative measurements, which means that they need a cycle to ‘learn' the thickness of a sheet. Also the length of the document is measured so partly overlapping sheets will be detected.
    Double parallel fold

    The double parallel fold is a type of fold where the document is first folded halfway and the resulting folded set is again folded halfway. This fold is illustrated in the picture below. The position of both folds is adjustable.

    Envelope The envelope is the packaging of a mail set. Window envelopes are envelopes that have a transparent section through which the address on the address carrier can be read. Besides the normal top closing window envelopes there are also bottom closing envelopes.
    Face down Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing downwards when placed in a document feeder.
    Face down leading Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing downwards and the top of the sheet is closest to the separation unit in a document feeder, ie. the front end of the tray
    Face down trailing Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing downwards and the bottom of the sheet is closest to the separation unit in a document feeder, ie. the front end of the tray.
    Face up Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing upwards when placed in a document feeder.
    Face up leading Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing upwards and the top of the sheet is closest to the separation unit in a document feeder, ie. the front end of the tray.
    Face up trailing Situation in which the front of a sheet is facing upwards and the bottom of the sheet is closest to the separation unit in a document feeder, ie. the front end of the tray.
    Feeder A feeder is a module for the input of documents to the inserting system. The feeder separates documents sheet by sheet from the stack of documents in the feeder tray.
    Feeder linking (Cascading) The ability to load two feeders with the same document type where the inserting system automatically switches to a second feeder when the first feeder is empty and vice versa. In the mean time the first feeder can be refilled, so the inserting system can keep running without having to stop for refilling the feeders.
    Feeder tray Part of the feeder that contains the stack of documents or envelopes.
    Flexcode OMR An OMR code for which the meaning of the OMR marks can be programmed in a dedicated way for a specific customer. This is normally used to support the OMR codes from other suppliers
    FlexFeed® The flexFeed® is the feeding part of the system.
    High Capacity Feeder Feeder that has a capacity up to 1000 sheets (on a Tower unit).
    High Capacity Vertical Stacker Optional stacker that is mounted on the exit of the system, to stack flled envelopes.
    Insert
    • To insert is the action of inserting a document set into an envelope.
    •  For native English speaking customers an insert is also a short document, not to be folded, usually an enclosure.
    Inserter An inserter is the module where the document set is inserted into the envelope, the envelope is closed and if necessary sealed.
    Inserting system The system of all the modules that cooperate to perform the inserting function (accumulate document set, fold and insert) and have a single point of control.
    Insert'n Frank / Insert'n Mail™ (mailing system) Interface for the Neopost franking system.
    Job

    A job is an actually produced collection of mail sets based on a certain job definition at a certain point in time for a specific purpose. It consists of:

    • The job definition used for the production
    • Information about the batch size
    Job counter The counter that registers the number of mail sets that is produced as part of a specific job.
    Letter fold (also known as C-fold) Fold type in which a document set is folded twice in which the folded flaps are on top of each other. This fold is illustrated below. The position of both folds is adjustable.
    Linking See Cascade
    MaxiFeeder™ Feeder with high capacity feeder tray.
    Multiples The feature of an inserting system in which more than one sheet is taken from a feeder.
    OMR Optical Mark Recognition (see further table entry).
    OMR code definition Standard 1-track OMR code definition. Specifies the amount of reading marks used and the functionality linked to each of them (how each should be interpreted). A definition is a licenced option.
    Operator The person operating an inserting system.
    Optical Mark Recognition
    (OMR)
    Optical Mark Recognition is intended for reading and interpreting printed codes. These codes are one or more black marks which are read from a document. These marks give information to the inserting system about how to build-up and handle a set.
    Output Conveyor Fitted at the output for filled envelopes to be ejected onto. Higher capacity alternative to a receiving tray. 2 lengths are available.

    Reading marks Marks added to documents containing finishing instructions that can be identified by an reading head and interpreted according to the used OMR code definition.
    Receiving tray Fitted at the output for filled envelopes to be ejected into. Basic alternative to an Output Conveyor.
    Remote diagnostics The feature that makes it is possible to analyze a problem on an inserting system from a remote location.
    Service engineer Technical engineer whose task it is to resolve problems with systems in the field. Besides dealing with problems, service engineers are also responsible for preventive maintenance.
    Single fold

    A single fold implies the document set is folded once. The fold position is adjustable. This fold is illustrated below:

    Stop counter Counter which sets the amount of envelopes to be filled. After filling this amount of envelopes the system will stop.
    Supervisor Person who is responsible for the technical state of the system. Normally a supervisor has access to programming functions, which are restricted for standard users.
    Test run A test run is intended to validate the settings of the inserting system:
    • Inspect and adjust the stop position of the envelope.
    • Check the fold settings for one set.
    • Check whether the address is correctly positioned behind the envelope window.
    Tray (or hopper)
    Contains a stack of paper for a printer or inserter. This paper is supplied to the system for further processing.
    Vertical transport
    The vertical transport section between hoppers and folder/ collator below .
    Z-fold (also known as zigzag fold)
    A Z-fold means that a document is folded twice in such a way that each folded flap is on a different size of the folded document, resulting in a Z-shape. This fold is illustrated below.

    The position of both folds is adjustable.
