At the Hunkeler Innovationdays, Böwe Systec announced a new Fusion Speed high performance inserter that is capable of filling up to 30,000 envelopes per hour.
After the success of its Fusion Cross inserting system, the company has now announced the Fusion Speed. The new system retains the strengths of the Fusion Cross, but – depending of the application – is capable of higher speeds of up to 30,000 envelopes per hour and can handle a range of formats. It will be shown to the public for the first time at the inserting specialist’s open day in Augsburg on May 14 this year and it should be ready for a commercial launch in 2020.
‘Market feedback gave us the idea for the Fusion Speed. This new high performance inserting machine and its exceptional speed mean that we can generate even more output for our customers and they can achieve a return on investment from the machine within a short period of time,’ said Wulf Böttcher, product manager Inserting at Böwe Systec.
What sets both the Fusion Cross and the Fusion Speed apart from other systems is their inserting technique, the so-called ‘Flow-Principle’. This slows the filling speed down 4.5 fold to allow more time for the actual filling process, enabling different envelope formats and difficult enclosures up to 15 mm thick and weighing up to 1 kg to be handled – and all without stopping. This special inserting process ensures a stable production flow and results in high net output.
