Mail Wrapping Solutions

 

The Kern 40 Mail Wrapping System is both simple and versatile. Advanced electronics and a touch-screen control panel enable operators to switch quickly and easily from one type and size of product to another resulting in quicker preparation times between jobs and a significant increase in output.

Because the use of mechanical parts has been kept to a minimum, maintenance and service intervals could be longer, resulting in reduced costs.

The Kern 40 Mail Wrapping System achieves impeccable quality through electronic monitoring and control of all aspects of production. The final product is wrapped perfectly regardless of its size and thickness from a piece 0.1 mm thick to 40 mm thick.

Modular and flexible

The Kern 40 Mail Wrapping System is completely modular. Your initial investment is protected, because you can upgrade and expand the system at any time to meet changing needs.

Different types of feeders (shuttle feeder, rotary feeder, friction feeder, gadget feeder) enable you to collate all kinds of products - from single sheet to books, from coupons to magazines, from business cards to CDs. Various types of plastic film can be utilised to wrap the resulting groups.

Products can be addressed and personalised in two different ways. The first option means addresses are printed directly on the products or their wrappers. The second option is pre-printed address labels are affixed to the product or wrapper.

If required, the plastic film can be shrunk to fit in the Kern 40 Mail Wrapping System’s shrink tunnel.

Once products have been wrapped, they can be collected on an output conveyor belt or stacked by means of a stacking module. The built-in PC makes it possible to manage output according to postal criteria.

The Kern 40 Mail Wrapping System is capable of working with other finishing systems (e.g., binders, saddle stitchers) by virtue of its interface modules. These modules can also be used to feed “difficult” products such as wired calendars or agendas, making it ideal for paper manufacturing, digital printing, bookbinding, direct marketing, newspaper and magazine distribution, Publishing, public administration and advertising.
