• TermDescription
    Address carrierThe address carrier is the document that carries the address of the person for who the mail-set is meant. 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.

    AutomaticThe 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 documentset) and the length of the envelope the fold type is determined.
    Automatic jobA job that is created with the Automatic 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.
    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 in the picture below.

    The position of both folds is adjustable. Synonym: Letter fold.

    ClearThe function of an inserting system in which all mail-sets in progress are finished and the document path is left empty.
    Daily MailCapability 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.
    Divert areaTo avoid stoppages the Divert area diverts duplicate on faulty documents before folding them while the system is still running.
    DocumentA 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-setThe 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 in the envelope. The number of enclosures can range from 0 to the limit opposed by the number of available Feeders. Once the document set has been inserted into an envelope it is called mail set.
    Double Feed
    Control (DFC)
    Double Feed Control is the sensor that measures the thickness of a sheet to check if the inserting system does not accidentally take more sheets than intended. DFC sensors exist on Feeders (double sheet detection). Currently DFCs on 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
    See double V-fold.
    Double V-fold

    The double V-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. Synonym: double parallel fold.

    EnvelopeThe 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.

    Option, makes bottom address applications and short folds possible.
    Face downSituation 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.
    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.
    Face upSituation in which the front of a sheet is facing upwards when placed in a document feeder.
    Face up leadingSituation 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.
    Face up trailingSituation 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.
    Feeder(s)The (document) feeding part of the system.
    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 feed tray.
    Feeder linkingThe 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.
    Feed trayPart of the feeder that contains the stack of documents.
    Flexcode OMRAn 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.
    High Capacity Document Feeder (HCDF)Optional feeder with a capacity for up to 725 sheets.
    High Capacity
    Vertical Stacker (HCVS)
    Optional stacker that is mounted on the exit of the system, to stack filled envelopes.
    Insert
    • An insert is the action of inserting a document-set into an envelope.
    • For native English speaking customers an insert is also a short, not to be folded document, usually an enclosure.
    InserterAn Inserter is the Module where the document-set is inserted into the envelope, the envelope is closed and if necessary sealed.
    Inserting systemThe 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
    machine)
    Interface for the franking machine.
    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 counterThe counter that registers the number of mail-sets that is produced as part of a specific job.
    Letter foldSee C-fold.
    LinkingSee Feeder Linking.
    LocThe Loc is the unit in the system that transports the envelope just after the document was inserted. It is called Loc (short for locomotive) as the early developments had a straight cover and a number of transportation rollers sticking out. This made it look like a locomotive from the side. In the current systems the loc also carries the brush holder and sealing rollers.
    MaxifeederFeeder with high capacity feed tray (e.g. 1200 sheets A4 80gr).
    MultifeedThe feature of an Inserting System in which more than one sheet is taken from a Feeder.
    OMROptical Mark Recognition
    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).
    OperatorThe person operating a document 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.
    Folder unitThe Folder unit can fold up tot 10 pages.
    Reading errorCondition in which the system could not reliably read or interpret the OMR reading marks or barcode from a sheet.
    Reading marksMarks added to documents containing finishing instructions that can be identified by a reading head and interpreted according to the used OMR code definition.

    diagnostics
    The feature that makes it is possible to analyze a problem on an Inserting System from a remote location.
    Service engineerTechnical 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 foldSee V-fold.
    Stop counterCounter which sets the amount of envelopes to be filled. After filling this amount of envelopes the system will stop (even during a clear).
    SupervisorPerson who is responsible for the technical state of the machine. 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 if the address is correctly positioned behind the envelope window.
    Thickness
    detection
    Checks the thickness of the document set. If the thickness is less or more than the set value an error message is displayed.
    TrayContains a stack of paper for a printer or inserter. This paper is supplied to the machine for further processing.
    V-fold

    A V-fold implies the document/set is folded once. The fold-position is adjustable. This fold is illustrated in the picture below:

    Synonym: Single fold.

    Vertical transportThe vertical transport section between feeders and collator.
    Z-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 in the picture below.

    The position of both folds is adjustable. Synonyms: zigzag fold
