The envelope/tape transport consists of five subsystems:
an autofeeder (DM400c/DM475) that separates and feeds a stack of
envelopes onto the feed deck of the mailing machine
a tape transport unit that separates and feeds tape strips onto the feed
in the printer/base, an upper transport driven by the transport drive motor
in the printer/base, a lower, hinged transport which has a series of idler
rollers friction driven by the upper transport
a motion control system that monitors the position of the envelope or
tape strip as it traverses the transport.

DM400c /DM450c/DM475 Autofeeder Transport

As noted above, the automatic feeder is designed to separate and feed a
stack of envelopes into the printer which serves as an indicia printer. The
DM400c/DM450c feeder is fully integrated with the printer; it is not available
as a separate module and therefore cannot be field retrofitted.
The feeder has the following transport components:
Drive Motor
Drive System
Feed Deck
Envelope Moistener
Feeder Exit Roller and Sensor FS2
