Fast, accurate mail assembly


Thirteen times faster than using a manual process, the DS-40i's automatic cascade feeding function offers continuous operation by linking feeders. If one feeder runs empty, the other feeder automatically takes over, allowing you to refill on-the-fly as needed until your job is complete. Energy saving automatic standby moves system into sleep mode when not in use.

Accommodates variety

The DS-40i includes two sheet feeders and one insert feeder to handle a variety of document, insert and envelope sizes. Choose from four different folding types to give your customer communications a professional look and feel. The manual feed function allows you to feed up to five sheets at one time, even if the sheets are stapled. The inserts and BRE feeder lets you insert specific communications, such as flyers, marketing messages, or return envelopes.

Always accurate

The DS-40i's intuitive document loading and paper present sensors ensure your job is always set up correctly before you start. Our exclusive double document detection technology verifies that all active feeders feed only one sheet or one insert at a time, preventing feeding errors to ensure that all documents are sent to the correct recipient.


Easy to use

The intuitive 5"colour touchscreen makes every job set-up a breeze. Our Wizard-based operating software guides you through set-up and helps you recall jobs or adjust system settings when needed. Quickly recall up to 15 stored jobs or create new jobs with ease.


Through high speed wireless internet connection, activate the DS-40i's embedded remote assistance and remote control features to access on-demand technical support right from the touchscreen. Remote assistance and remote control allow Quadient Service Technicians to view and share control of the user screen in order to guide you through an issue to resolution.
