Pitney Bowes DM400M Review

The Pitney Bowes DM400M franking machine is the ideal solution for medium to large businesses sending up to 500 mail items per day.

Why consider a DM400M franking machine?

As a high capacity franking machine, the DM400M from Pitney Bowes can process up to 500 items of mail per day at a rate of up to 95 letters per minute. However, as part of the long established Pitney Bowes range, it is still very simple to use and adaptable to the needs of your business. You can choose whether you want an integrated scale of 2.5kg or 5kg capacity, or even upgrade to 7kg, 12kg or 35kg. It will process envelopes up to 8mm in thickness and up to 330 x 381mm in size.

There’s no need to worry about manually updating the machine or downloading the latest Royal Mail prices as the machine does this automatically via IntelliLink technology. The DM400M enables you to track usage for up to 25 different accounts as standard but this can be increased to accommodate larger businesses. It’s really easy to ensure all your mail is professional while promoting your brand by printing crisp, clean logos, QR codes or marketing messages on your envelopes.
