Jetstream Add-Ons


This system processes multiple-up mail pieces and performs numerous functions in one pass.

Direct mail pieces are two-sided trimmed, gutter cut, scored and perforated, plus pattern (strike) perforating to create tear-off coupons in both directions. Remoistenable glue is applied followed by folding, tip-on card inserting and fugitive spot glue closure as the final step. These processes are all completed in one single pass!

There is no other mail finishing system on the market capable of completing up to eight processes in one system. Reduce excess labor costs and streamline direct mail finishing. Mailstream is ideal for both VDP, Ink-Jetting or Static Direct Mail production.


When the highest quality cutting is required, the Jetslit configuration is an option.

Commonly used for business card slitting, these heads offer long durability and extremely precise cuts.

Their 10′ diameter design guarantee absolute accuracy and clean edges. Jetslit also performs scoring and perforating as standard features.

Automated Mailing Services Installs Rollem’s Mailstream Solution to Streamline Direct Mail Finishing

AMS is utilizing Rollem’s Mailstream to help produce their application of tri fold mailers with a bi-directional “T” perf, folded and glued. The Mailstream operates in-line with the Advantage folder/gluer unit to feed, trim, strike perforate, fold and glue, all in one uninterrupted process in mail sort order. Rollem had AMS’s Advantage folder/gluer built to precise specifications due to the complex folds. “We are very happy with the equipment and it’s running beautifully for us”, states Dale VanderStelt.

"From day one, we started to use the Rollem Jetstream and basically we’ve used it every day since. We had a job of 5,000,000 postcards that were due in one week when we received installation of the Jetstream system … We had the job done and out the door in less than a week. We use the Jetstream all the time and I know I can count on our system to get the job done fast and accurately. The ability to handle the perforating, scoring and edge trimming in one step, makes the Jetstream one of the key machines in my finishing department."
