DS-85i folder inserter


Your mailroom assistant

Fold, insert and seal up to 60,000 envelopes per month

The DS-85i folding and inserting machine is Ideally suited for businesses that need to automate a wide variety of document sizes and types. Modular in design, the DS-85i can be specified with up to six feed stations to process your most challenging combinations of document sizes and types.

With the full-page Contact Image Sensor (CIS) scanning technology, the DS-85i can read any type of coding including optical mark, optical character, and 1D and 2D data matrix barcodes. Because the scanner reads the entire area of the page, codes can be printed anywhere on the document and read horizontally and vertically.

With its large loading and unloading capabilities and many intelligent features to maintain operation, the DS-85i fits perfectly into busy mailrooms.

DS-85i screen


The 7” colour touch screen and wizard-based guidance simplify operation. Quickly recall up to 20 jobs stored in the machine memory, or create new ones with ease. Load documents and envelopes, press start, and the DS-85i automatically measures the materials and sets itself up.


Continuous operation is achieved by linking feeders. If one feeder runs empty, another one automatically takes over, allowing you to refill as needed until your job is complete. Automatically fold & insert up to 4,000 mail pieces per hour.



The high capacity vertical stacker reduces the frequency of unloading, freeing the operator to attend to other tasks. It requires less handling and makes it possible to complete up to 500 envelopes every 8 minutes while running at maximum speed.


DS-85i can be configured with barcode reading technology to automate variable-page jobs, incorporating another layer of security that ensures the right documents are always sent to the right person.

What our customers are saying

Ecotrend Ecologics Ltd. has received exceptional customer service from Quadient. I was extremely stressed out due to some shenanigans from another mailing machine supplier and Quadient came to the rescue. They went above and beyond and I would recommend them to anyone!
