Installed at the company’s production centre in Rugby, Warwickshire in November, the machine has replaced a piece of legacy equipment.
It can process up to 46,500 DL letters per hour to 128 sort bins, which have been set-up in a two-tier, two-sided configuration with integrated tray drawers to achieve the best output in the smallest possible footprint (just over 15 metres long).
Datagraphic general manager Sarah Butler said: “Installing two significant pieces of equipment in the production centre in a matter of months has taken a real team effort and meticulous planning.
“Our customers trust us with time-critical financial, employee and healthcare communications which we often have to print and mail within hours of receiving the data. Expanding our mail sortation and consolidation capacity ensures we continue to meet demand and do it efficiently.”
Group managing director Glyn King added: “We took the decision to work with Böwe Systec as researching the market they appeared to be the go-to provider of letter sortation in the UK.
“They also demonstrated a depth of knowledge in mail consolidation and offered a package of on-site support and preventative maintenance, which is essential for time-critical operations like ours.
“The team at Böwe Systec in Derby specifically have worked closely with us to understand the way our business works and make the installation as seamless as possible.”
Employing more than 120 staff, Datagraphic has a second site in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The Böwe Systec installation followed the firm’s investment in a new Xerox Trivor 2400 HD inkjet press a few months earlier.
