Press release from the issuing company

Chicago, Sept. 10, 2007 - BÖWE BELL + HOWELL has unveiled its new brokerage application inserting system at GRAPH EXPO 2007. The BBH 400e System joins the company's prestigious line of modular products with the integration of BICOS (BÖWE Integrated Control Operation System) and KOMPOS (BÖWE's modular control system). This innovative solution offers mail service providers the reliability, functionality and inserting speed needed to handle high volumes.
BÖWE BELL + HOWELL, a leading provider of document management and postal solutions, is providing live demonstrations of the BBH 400e System in Booth No. 600, prominently located just inside the main tradeshow entrance. This year's GRAPH EXPO runs Sept. 9 through Sept. 12 at McCormick Place South in Chicago
As printing and mailing operations continue to converge, many organizations are looking for new solutions and vendor relationships. BÖWE BELL + HOWELL's experienced staff remind printers and mailers that their search for the right solution "Starts Here."
"The BBH 400e System is another representation of how BÖWE BELL + HOWELL focuses on solutions based on our customers' priorities," stated Gordon Galloway, BBH business solution manager. "The BBH 400e blends brokerage capability and durability with document integrity that can only be provided by BÖWE BELL + HOWELL."
The BBH 400e System is built to offer simple, straightforward performance. The system is replete with intuitive, operator-friendly design features - simple adjustments, hand-wheel-adjustable rotary feeders, and more - that allow for quick format and size changes by the operator. The end result is a workflow component that's easy for operators to run and adjust as needed.
The heavy-duty design of the BBH 400e System has proven itself in typically heavy-volume, 'round-the-clock production environments. Developed and manufactured with a particular attention to long-term durability and peerless efficiency, the BBH 400e is an ideal choice for environments where minimized downtime is crucial.
Ready for numerous applications
The BBH 400e System is capable of processing multiple envelope types - #14, #10 and 6" x 9" - at cycle rates of up to 20,000 per hour. Application transitions are streamlined for pure simplicity. And with the integration of the BICOS and KOMPOS control architecture, the BBH 400e System lets mailers handle the widest possible array of paper-processing modules.
Providing operators with rapid access to key processing areas, the BBH 400e System dramatically reduces downtime due to job changeover or other necessary workflow chores. This increases the system's availability and leads to a fast return on investment.
Trusted and award-winning service
BÖWE BELL + HOWELL's team of service professionals is uniquely qualified to provide service on mailroom and office equipment throughout North America. Their proven track record includes servicing not only their own products, but also supporting multiple products from more than 30 other manufacturers.
By tracking and displaying mailpiece processing status in real time, the BICOS system eliminates lag time that can endanger a production schedule should a job hiccup occur. Easy access to envelope and insert feeders ensures fast response to any in-line situation. With a high-capacity on-edge conveyor that holds up to 2,500 finished mailpieces, the operator is free to focus on overall machine productivity. With the BÖWE One suite of software solutions, mailers can also track the system's productivity.
Highly efficient
The combination of durable design and rotary feeding technology leads to one of the most efficient inserting systems available today. A choice of five types of enclosure feeders enables the best match of material-handling technology to the material itself.
BÖWE BELL + HOWELL's booth will also feature inserting, sorting, vision, software, scanning and service solutions. Additional booth space is devoted to high-speed cutters and kiosks with information on the BÖWE Group, expert consultants and more.
