Integrated Booklet Binding Solution

Streamline the Booklet Binding, Inserting, and Validation Process

Bell and Howell’s Booklet Binding and Inserting Solution combines three industry-leading technologies to completely automate and streamline the booklet assembly, inserting, and validation process. Enabling brokerage, healthcare, insurance mailers to minimize their overhead and footprint requirements, while maximizing job throughput in a 24-hour period.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

An Integrated System for Healthcare, Insurance, and More

Bell and Howell’s Integrated Booklet Binding System is a reliable, heavy-duty production solution that combines the Tecnau IBIS Smart-Binder and Producer Inserter. This powerful combination minimizes the total production timeline from booklet assembly to finished envelope, enhancing efficiencies and cutting time. This solution integrates mailpiece tracking from booklet creation to end user providing complete data integrity and security, and helps consolidate total labor requirements typically needed for multiple systems.

Maximize Production Output Without Sacrificing Customization Capabilities

Bell and Howell’s Integrated Booklet Binding Solution is durably built for 24/7 production environments. The system processes up-to 3,700 booklets/hr. for an average of 5- 8 sheet booklet sizes. The system also offers bind-on-demand capabilities for book personalization or short job runs. With integrated sheet and book tracking, this system can process variable book thicknesses on-the-run without the need for operator adjustments.
Each sheet is folded individually and uses a unique clamp device to minimize book spine corner tearing for booklets up-to 0.4” thick. Using the integrated JETVision® camera system, the system ensures the quality and integrity of every booklet and mailpiece processed. Additionally, the solution can decouple the process without removing devices so that the base machine can also function as a direct mail system.

From a Booklet Creation to Finished Envelope, Without Intervention

The Tecnau Unwinder and Cutter processes an 18” diameter roll 2-up at web speeds of 180 fpm. Alternatively, we can substitute the continuous roll feeder with the IBIS SB-095 Sheet Pile Feeder.

The IBIS Smart-Binder assembles, binds, and trims to a finished flat or half-fold size booklet. Common booklet size options include 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 6×9”, or 8 ½” x 11” flat.

Upon entering the Producer 250DM, a corresponding personalized card may also be attached, with selective enclosures added. Contents are then inserted into a flat or letter-sized envelope. Each envelope is validated using the end-of-process JETVision® camera system to ensure 100% integrity.
