BOWE SYSTEC will set new benchmarks in mailroom automation for transactional printing and direct mail service providers at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 (February 27 to March 2, Lucerne Exhibition Center, Switzerland). The BOWE GROUP division specializing in innovative solutions for mail processing will show high-performance inserting technology embedded in a comprehensive, agile automation and mail logistics concept.
The highlight at the BOWE SYSTEC Booth S9 in Hall 2 will be the highly automated Fusion Speed inserting system – the fastest and most efficient model in the Fusion Series with an output of up to 30,000 envelopes per hour. The machines in BOWE SYSTEC’s Fusion Series cover virtually all inserting applications arising in a mailroom and leave nothing to be desired in terms of format variety as well as efficiency, flexibility, and availability. All Fusion systems are controlled using the intuitive BOWE Cockpit control app and owe their capabilities to the Flow-Principle. This unique technology reduces the inserting speed by a factor of 4.5 to allow more time during the inserting process, enabling reliable production with extremely high net output.
MAXIMUM AUTOMATION, MINIMUM PERSONNEL
Lucerne will be the venue for the Fusion Speed inserter’s first ever live demonstration at a trade show in combination with the new BOXIT system for automatic filling of postal trays. BOXIT – included as standard with the Fusion Speed at no extra cost – takes the filled envelopes and automatically deposits them in postal trays. BOXIT thus smooths the way to fewer staff – a particularly welcome effect in times when the labor market is tight and there is a shortage of skilled workers – meaning just one person is required to operate the inserting system.
Visitors to the BOWE booth will have a chance to see how upstream and downstream stages in the inserting process can likewise be made more streamlined and integrated into an end-to-end automation concept. This extended scenario encompasses the warehouse and goods receipt on the one hand and the outbound delivery area for the processed mail on the other. High-performance conveyor systems, AGVs, and robots from BOWE INTRALOGISTICS bring their strengths to bear here together with innovative solutions from the BOWE IQ software division – such as auto ID technology, the Warehouse Management System, or versatile integration software. “Having optimized and automated machine inserting to the maximum extent possible, we’re now taking the next step by extending the reach of automation in all directions involving every aspect of the inserting process,” says BOWE GROUP Managing Director Joachim Koschier. “This integration systematizes upstream and downstream logistics while further reducing the need for human labor and improving the efficiency and reliability of the overall process.”
BOWE will take advantage of the Hunkeler Innovationdays 2023 to spread the message that Mailroom 4.0 is not a future utopia, but can already be realized today. Thanks to BOWE SYSTEC’s modern mailroom automation technologies, transactional printers, lettershops, and direct mail service providers can sustainably streamline their processes and make them more efficient – creating optimal conditions to keep their services competitive and profitable in the long term.
