Pitney Bowes (Booth 1238) is introducing a new In-line Envelope Converting module for its Mailstream Wrapper Productivity Series inserting system to help high-volume transactional mailers and service bureaus produce high-quality, window envelopes. This enhancement exends the lean manufacturing benefits and application flexibility of an integrated, print and mail White Paper Factory environment to help organizations achieve significant operational savings while producing high-value customer communications.
The module uses continuous rolls of paper to produce high-quality wrap material in-line during the mail finishing process. This unique technology allows mailers to cost-effectively produce wrap material with a scalloped flap and window patch, resulting in a finished mailpiece with the appearance of a traditional business envelope.
Integrated seamlessly with the Mailstream Wrapper, the module transforms mail finishing into a continuous workflow to produce variable page transactional and direct mail customer communications.
This solution features precision inline flap profiling, window cut-out and patching for processing white paper or pre-printed rolls. The servo-driven cutting system simplifies changes between windows sizes and locations while helping to ensure accurate registration to the printed web. Utilizing recyclable glassine, window patches are applied, creating a solid seal and flat patch. By incorporating the module with the Mailstream Wrapper, organizations can reduce the costs of pre-manufactured envelopes and time associated with material handling and logistics.
