Neuwied, May 3, 2016 – With the launch of its new W+D 410 Easy Enveloper at drupa 2016, W+D is introducing a productive machine for manufacturing envelopes that is not only easy to operate but also easy and quick to change-over. The company is thus responding to the current market trend towards smaller and medium size order volumes and the increasing shortage of skilled workers in envelope production. This will open up new prospects for both traditional envelope manufacturers and newcomers who want to manufacture envelopes themselves.
Quick and easy format changes using hardly any tools
The operator will find it very easy to operate the W+D 410 Easy Enveloper smoothly after a brief training. Automated processes and modern, intuitive touchscreen technology make the W+D 410 Easy Enveloper even easier to operate. Extensive help menus and step-by-step instructions on how to set and adjust the machine support the operator in every situation. Thanks to the revised e.g. newly designed cutting and folding stations, almost no tools are needed to make modifications and change formats. If by chance a service issue arises, an Internet telephone connection to the experienced service technicians at W+D can be established by pressing a button. The machine will automatically transmit the current status and a diagnostic report the moment that this "Push-to-Service" connection is established.
Increased productivity through flexibility
Direct marketing companies, for example, will not only gain time advantages with respect to “time to mailbox,” but also be able to produce their own envelopes. The high quality of the envelopes in turn ensures that the downstream processes run smoothly and thus increases productivity. Because the W+D 410 Easy Enveloper already includes all of the components and auxiliary units that are needed to produce envelopes, all the customer needs are the raw materials paper, window material and glue. With a production capacity of up to 30,000 envelopes per hour, the W+D 410 Easy Enveloper produces high-quality envelopes from printed or unprinted materials without leaving any marks or printing on the paper.
Energy and resource-saving production
W+D placed great importance on low power consumption and on minimizing paper waste in developing its new machine. Intelligent servo drive technology, for instance, ensures that all of the “good products,” i.e. finished envelopes, land on the table when the machine stops instead of being discharged as in the past. Thanks to design improvements that have been made to the vacuum guide, 20% less pumping power is needed than with a comparable machine. The significantly reduced noise level in production is yet another positive side effect.
