Abstract

See full text

A method for supplying and inserting document sets into associated envelopes, in which the document sets are supplied to an insert station in a document material stream and the envelopes are supplied to the insert station in an envelope material stream, to allow mail pieces to be collated with high reliability. In the insert station, the document set supplied in each case is inserted into the relevant envelope supplied at the same time, wherein for each document set, the position thereof in the document sequence and an associated document identification code are determined, and for each envelope, the position thereof in the envelope sequence and an associated envelope identification code are determined, and a document set and an envelope are supplied to the insert station only as a pair when it is confirmed that the envelope pending supply is individually associated with the document set pending supply.
