Broad processing spectrum
Highly flexible, modular design
Sorting is the key stage in mail processing. Letters and Flats need to be sorted rapidly, reliably and cost-effectively. Featuring technology for particularly gentle mail handling, the Simex Flexi offers professional, high-performance mixed mail sorting. The advanced feeder reliably separates different types of postal items – from standard letters to 20 mm thick, polywrapped catalogs. Guiding channels guarantee a gentle and constant material flow, keeping the reject rate to a minimum. Market-leading OCR technologies ensure top reading rates and maximum reliability throughout the whole sorting process. The system’s high availability and minimal wear and tear result in a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and make this modular system an ideal investment for the future.
With its well-thought-out design and its gentle and smooth sorting process, the Simex Flexi is able to sort an extraordinarily broad spectrum of formats and enclosure thicknesses stably, reliably and at high speed. This mixed mail sorter handles up to 40,000 items per hour spanning an impressive range of formats from small C6 or #7 3/4 postcards to large B4 letters and Flats. Even bulky mailings such as newspapers, magazines, catalogs or polywrapped items pose no problem for the Simex Flexi, which can sort items up to 20 mm thick. Since most of the mail can be sorted by machine, error-prone and time-consuming manual sorting is kept to a minimum.
On top of its outstanding performance, Simex Flexi provides optimal working conditions and easy, ergonomic handling with low maintenance requirements. The mail sorting system also offers easy access on both sides as well as reduced noise levels that mean it is no longer necessary to wear hearing protectors. The intuitive sorting software and the system’s ergonomic design together result in a high level of operator comfort while boosting productivity.
The letter sorting machine’s flexibility extends to the software: BOWE Sort control software from BOWE IQ allows customized solutions. Features like automated returns handling or sequencing in the walk route of the letter carrier are just some of the many options the software provides. The implementation of individual sorting schemes are a matter of course. The BOWE IQ Asset Tracking & Asset Management software in combination with innovative RFID technology enables you to track your sort bins in real time.
DRIVING DOWN YOUR
COSTS OF POSTAGE
It’s difficult to keep on top of the mail delivery price jungle so it’s just as well that our systems save you the trouble and during the sorting run automatically select the best and cheapest mail service provider for every individual item on the basis of address data, weight, dimensions as well as the time stamp. That brings with it the added benefit that franking is no longer necessary since the relevant billing data is simultaneously calculated for the customer to be invoiced individually.
Simex Flexi’s extraordinary flexibility makes it easy to customize and retrofit the letter sorter as necessary at any time. With multiple rollers and conveyor belts on top of each other, the letter sorting system is ideally suited to handle larger items, too. Below please find a choice of the many options which Simex Flexi mail sorting system offers:
- Sorts mixed mail into vertical stacks or mail tubs on two sides
- Electronic bin displays at destinations
- Barcode & OCR reading
- Doubles detector
- Barcode and graphics printer as well as barcode verifier
- Dynamic scale
- Separation card system
- Illuminated jam sensors and stop buttons installed along the whole length of the bin module
A doubles detector prevents sorting errors as a result of mail pieces sticking to each other. Doubles are routed to a special bypass bin without interrupting the sorting process.
Simple yet efficient. A separation card system allows rapid switching between customers or service types without any additional manual intervention via the software, eliminating potential loss of time.
Calibrated scales integrated in the system enable dynamic weighing of items to the nearest gram at full processing speed. BOWE also has the right solution for measuring thickness and format.
An integrated labeler applies labels precisely to items as required; graphics or barcodes can then be printed on them during the sorting process. The real plus point here is that the labeler operates dynamically and is only active when needed.
The Simex Flexi sorts mixed mail onto stackers and/or into bins on both sides of the machine. An electronic display on the output bin indicates the specified sorter destination.
No more searching. Our locating solutions mean that you know where your sort bins are at any time. Advanced RFID technology makes this possible. Dynamic real time locating adds transparency and optimizes your material flows.
