Civica Election Services in Böwe Systec investment
Wednesday, March 10, 2021
Civica Election Services has invested in a Fusion Cross inserter from Böwe Systec to boost its capacity and productivity.
The business, which is based in Wood Green, North London, started live production on the machine – its first inserter from Böwe Systec – in December.
Capable of achieving a throughput of up to 22,000 envelopes per hour, the Fusion Cross will enable Civica to process a range of different job specifications, utilising the technology’s ability to handle a wide variety of formats from DL to C5 and up to C4 flats at high speed.
The control software, Böwe Cockpit, makes it easier to prepare and process orders, automatically carries out format changeovers, and significantly shortens the changeover times.
Managing director Simon Hearn said: “Civica Election Services continuously invests in technology to ensure we deliver the best possible service for our customers.
“This important investment allows us to further increase capacity and improve productivity and efficiency. With the integrity of the machine, this enables us to provide our customers with an even higher quality product. We are very pleased with how the new inserter has performed, along with the training and support provided by Böwe Systec UK.”
Civica Election Services has more than a century's experience of administering elections, ballots and consultation processes and designs, prints and mails millions of voting packs each month.
Working for customers including AAT, British Friendly, Gloucester City Council and University of Salford, the business operates laser, litho and inkjet machinery and also offers services including envelope overprinting, barcode scanning, folding and perforating.
