BÖWE SYSTEC’s innovative Fusion series offers the right solutions to meet the growing requirements of the transactional and direct mail segment. Capable of filling up to 30,000 envelopes per hour and featuring extensive automation options, these systems meet the rigorous demands of modern mailrooms. World of Print reports on the non-stop production with the BÖWE SYSTEC Fusion series.
Anyone who is looking to carve out extra production time needs to boost the processing speed and also increase the level of automation. Therefore, BÖWE SYSTEC has not just focused on the consistent integration of its inserting systems, but also on continuously developing faster and more efficient solutions. It is now causing quite a stir with two new machines that stand out through their speed and productivity.
World premiere at Drupa 2020
The enhanced version of its high-speed Fusion Cross means that the company now has a solution capable of running at 24,000 cycles per hour, whilst its other new development, the Fusion Speed, is true to its name and offers a top speed of 30,000envelopes per hour. The Fusion Speed will be officially launched at drupa 2020. “With up to 30,000 envelopes per hour, the Fusion Speed is undoubtedly the fastest and most efficient system on the market”, declares Joachim Koschier, the Managing Director of the BÖWE SYSTEC Group. “The ultra high speed and reliability of this new high-performance inserter means that it will pay for itself within a very short period of time.”
Both systems offer the absolute precision required for the transactional segment whilst also being able to cope with the variety encountered when processing direct mailings. While the Fusion Cross is capable of handling a range of formats from B6+ to B4 (#7 ¾ – Flats), the Fusion Speed can process envelope sizes from B6+ to B5 (#7 ¾ – 6 x 9). What sets both the Fusion Cross and the Fusion Speed apart from other inserting systems is their unique Flow-Principle inserting technology, which slows down the filling speed by a factor of 4.5. Furthermore, this allows more time to be devoted to the actual inserting process and this in turn makes it possible to reliably handle a wide range of different envelope formats, as well as complex enclosures up to a thickness of 15 mm and weighing up to 1 kg in a non-stop manner. Furthermore, this unique inserting technology ensures stable, error-free production flow and delivers the industry’s highest net output. It is this performance level that enables a single Fusion Cross system to replace several other types of inserters.
Success through smart systems
High speed, however, is just one aspect. Machines need to be smart as well as fast in order to save time and money. It is system intelligence that reduces changeover times by allowing machines to network with each other, to be controlled intuitively and made ready rapidly and easily. And the Fusion platform offers a software package that delivers precisely these benefits. The BÖWE SYSTEC Fusion series comes with BÖWE Cockpit intuitive control software that allows job changeovers to be dealt with in almost no time at all. Job preparation and processing are simplified, format changes take place automatically. Changeovers and therefore downtimes are shortened significantly and errors prevented. The Small Batch Processing software in turn means that multiple small jobs can be bundled together on a single roll of paper and efficiently processed – the ideal combination for the profitable processing of small jobs.
BÖWE SYSTEC also offers numerous possibilities for automating and integrating pre and post processes into the workflow that up until now have been carried out separately or manually. Flexibly configured high performance in-feed channels for a wide variety of assembling, folding or stitching applications, the autoloader for automatic enclosure feeding, modules for individual color envelope printing, sorting functions or integrated postbox systems expand the functions of the system and reduce the need for special machines and staff. Such a modular approach allows the overall machinery package to be flexibly configured and this, combined with smart software, means that Fusion series users are already ideally equipped for the mailroom of tomorrow.
