OPEX Introduces the New Model 306 Enhanced Envelopener

09 June 2011

OPEX® Corporation, a recognized global technology leader in high-speed mailroom automation, announced today the addition of the Model 306 Envelopener and the Model 306s Envelopener with Sorting capability to its OMATION® line of products.

For more than thirty years, OMATION products have been a staple in mailrooms
across the globe. The all-new Model 306 contains significant technological
improvements over its predecessor, the Model 206 Envelopener, which has been
the world’s best selling envelope opening device for more than a decade.

The Model 306, with its ability to operate at a rated speed of up to 40,000
envelopes per hour, contains OPEX’s latest mail opening technology and sets a
new standard for high volume mail processing. The improved milling cutter with
8 cut-depth positions removes chips as small as 0.01” from the envelope edge,
producing a soft, feathered edge while protecting valuable envelope contents.
Even overnight delivery envelopes are no match for the Model 306. Equipped
with a new and robust operator control software interface, job setup can be done
with ease and flexibility.

Most significantly, the Model 306 is also available with enhanced sorting
capabilities as the Model 306s. Envelopes can be output to two locations based
on programmable criteria such as thickness, length, and height. Optional
batching capability allows items to be grouped together in pre-selected lot sizes.
Sorting options make the Model 306s a perfect fit for applications that require
verification of contents either before or after extraction like claims processing,
remittance, and vote-by-mail. Because of its ability to identify “clean mail” from
“exception mail,” the Model 306s also helps to insure maximum productivity from
mail extraction equipment by allowing operators to concentrate on extracting
envelope contents from “clean” batches instead of trying to handle exceptions at
the same time.

When the Model 306 is outfitted with the optional 90 - degree powered conveyer,
operators have more space to manage output. Other features include an
improved feeder, and two optional printers: A new High-Speed HP Inkjet Printer
that provides date coding, sequential numbering, messaging and ID tag
barcoding; and a Stats Printer that produces a variety of statistics reports
monitoring machine performance. Finally, the Model 306 and Model 306s
include three conveniently placed mail tray holders that are easily accessible to
the operator.
