The article provides information on the mailing big-job system Polybagger 550 from Renaddress. This system forms mailing bags by itself from a roll feed of material. It comes as one or two auto feeders, both plus a hand feed station and cycles at a consistent 2,500 A4 packs per hour. Easy set-up and job change, means that it needs just one operator. The feeders can handle anything from a single sheet of paper to a 10mm thick book and both Miss and Double detectors ensure the accuracy of the filled pack. If a mail item is not fed, no bag will be made so there is no waste and no downtime in clearing unwanted bags. One can then add an optional output conveyor and print registration for the Polybagger 550 to become capable of running security or multi-colored over-printed film.
