Anaheim, October 27th – October 30th, 2002: BOWE SYSTEC, a leading provider of intelligent automated mailing, plastic card and cutting systems, continues to introduce new innovative products and features to compliment its current comprehensive range of products. On display at the BOWE SYSTEC booth (#1013) at Xplor 2002 is the Marathon Inserting System demonstrating an expanded application range and new feeding technology.
The BOWE SYSTEC Marathon Series Inserting System is the premier inserting solution for performance, document security, integrity, flexibility, and value. The Marathon combines a 12,000 envelope per hour speed with high filling thickness, flexibility, ease of operation and secure package control to ensure maximum production and processing flexibility.
Designed to meet the requirements of high volume, high speed inserting environments, the new Folding Feeder enclosure module utilizes leading edge material handling techniques to ensure reliable feeding at high speeds. The integrated folding unit provides application flexibility for intelligent processing of cut sheet documents as a primary or secondary input channel. In addition, a new CD Feeder enclosure module is integrated into the system and demonstrated for the first time in the U.S. Another example of how the Marathon platform is designed for growth in the future and can be further enhanced and expanded to meet tomorrow’s industry requirements.
"The Marathon platform, like all BOWE SYSTEC systems, is designed to support developments for future growth and expanded capabilities," states Jim Walsh, Director of Marketing and Sales Support Engineering for BOWE SYSTEC Inc. "Our modular design approach virtually ensures our customers will be able to upgrade to these features and enhanced capabilities in the future as their requirements change, protecting their investment."
The closed loop tracking system provides the Marathon with the ability to track each document throughout the system for verification of mailing. The ‘pocket’ method of transporting the documents assures envelope integrity and ensures that the primary document shows through the envelope window and postal discounts are realized. Maximum production is ensured through the Marathon’s superior material feeding design that virtually eliminates stoppages caused by doubles, misfeeds and sealed envelopes.
The Marathon is ergonomically designed for ease of operation, rapid set-up and operator safety. The Marathon System incorporates acoustical and optical alarms for monitoring the envelope stack and the enclosure stack. The operator can react quickly when the system requires material replenishment, thus maintaining high productivity. Motor driven adjustment of the collating track combined with conveniently located controls provide easy set-up of the transport track and envelope and enclosure feeders. The safety covers over the transport and inserting sections provide soundproofing and user safety. If opened, the system automatically stops.
BOWE SYSTEC is an ISO-9001 provider of automated mailing solutions with over 80,000 units installed worldwide. Product offering ranges from standalone continuous forms cutters to intelligent high-speed and mid-range inserting systems including the BOWE Turbo 22, the most productive mailing system in the industry.
