IM-16 at a glance

The IM-16 letter opening machine features an ergonomic design with a compact footprint that fits on almost any desk. It slits the envelope on one side, safeguarding its contents while leaving no sharp edges or paper scraps. So you can quietly open a whole day’s worth of incoming mail in just minutes. Quadient's IM-16 letter opener enables you to process various envelope types, sizes, and thicknesses without sorting.

Safeguard envelope contents

While conventional letter openers can easily damage contents, the Quadient IM-16 uses an innovative method to neatly slit one side of the envelope. This avoids damage to valuable documents inside.
