BABS International launched the PHL 2044 Plus, a range of mailing machines with a Stack'n'Go feature. It allows the operator to stack into the machine documents of varying sizes plus an insert and the machine processes everything into the envelope automatically. No set-up is required. It is a matter of putting the stationery and inserts into the feed stations and hitting the start button. The machines are combined folding and inserting machines for the worktop. Two other efficiency features are 3,000 envelopes an hour and each automatic feed station's 250 sheet capacity which means fewer re-loads on long runs. Paper can be from 60-110gsm in weight and machines can insert booklets up to 10mm thick. There is a choice of models with two, three or four stations, and each system is either available with Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) or can be upgraded to read OMR at a later date. OMR allows selected enclosures to be matched to the correct multiple page documents automatically so that mailings can be speeded up without sacrificing accuracy. All the machines in the PHL 2044 Plus range can store up to 20 job programs in memory, and have an intelligent operator Help display on the control panel. They are capable of a variety of folding and nesting permutations, and offer a fold-only option when no envelope is required. They also have a hand feed Daily Post function which enables the machine to process stapled sets of documents either on their own, or with automatically fed items.
