Large crowds have been gathering at Kern’s stand at Drupa since the unveiling of the world’s fastest inserter, capable of astonishing speeds of up to 33,000 items per hour (Hall 6, Stand C79).
Leading the way to production mail excellence, Kern’s Ai-33 Direct High Speed Intelligent Inserter is capable of achieving input speeds and production efficiencies previously unattainable on inserting systems.
Chairman and owner of the Kern group, Uli Kern, said: “The Ai33 is a break-through inserter that meets the demands of a fast moving industry and marks a step towards the future for Kern. We are delighted with the amount of interest that the machine has generated already from media and global suppliers alike.”
The Ai-33 is part of the Ai Class of High Speed Inserter Systems, the first line of production inserters to possess a new level of embedded intelligence; it incorporates a communication process that can adapt behaviour based on real time system input. Advanced electronics enable intelligence to be transmitted to pro-actively identify areas where efficiencies can be made to maximise output. Intelligent software learns from operator capabilities, making automatic adjustments in timing to maximise throughput and reduce system inefficiencies.
The Ai-33 ensures that production is maximised whilst simultaneously assuring the highest document integrity, and delivering the lowest overall cost per piece in the industry. The output the Ai-33 can achieve is unrivalled by competitor systems, resulting in a lessened need for additional inserter lines, thereby reducing floor space and other necessary resources. The Ai-33Direct integrates Ethercat technology, an intelligent centralized electronic control system which enables the device to combine top performance controls with unique safety features and functions.
The Kern stand will give Drupa visitors first-hand experience of an impressive solutions portfolio that allows customers across the world to drive impeccable quality and value through their print and mail performance.
