Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF PROVIDING INSERTS INTO ENVELOPES
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES DE PLACEMENT DE PIECES JOINTES DANS DES ENVELOPPES
Abstract
(EN) The present invention provides exemplary mail processing systems and methods, including systems and methods for retrieving paper sheets, statements, inserts and/or cards, and inserting same into an envelope. In one embodiment, an apparatus (200) includes a paper feeding mechanism (210) to feed sheets of paper into a collection bin (220) that is adapted to receive in a stack the sheets of paper. The apparatus includes a retrieval mechanism (230) to remove a bottom one of said sheets of paper from the stack, and a deionizer (240) that reduces static electricity in the vicinity of the stack. In this manner, the deionizer helps facilitate removal by the retrieval mechanism of only one of the sheets of paper at a time, by reducing static electricity on the sheets.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de traitement du courrier, notamment des systèmes et des procédés d'extraction de feuilles de papier, de communiqués, de pièces jointes et/ou de cartes, et de les glisser dans une enveloppe. Dans un premier mode de réalisation, un appareil (200) comprend un système d'alimentation en papier (210) qui transfère les feuilles de papier dans une caisse de collecte (220) conçue pour recevoir une pile de feuilles de papier. Cet appareil comprend également un système d'extraction (230) qui prélève une feuille du bas de la pile de feuilles, et un déioniseur (240) qui réduit l'électricité statique autour de la pile. En réduisant l'électricité statique, le déioniseur permet au système d'extraction de prélever une feuille à la fois.
