WHEELING, IL—09/29/2010—BÖWE BELL + HOWELL (BBH), booth 3612, will feature industry experts, products and solutions for mailers of all sizes at this year’s GRAPH EXPO, to be held in Chicago from October 3-6.

“This year we are taking extra care to ensure that attendees of the show will be able to see and discuss solutions and industry changes that are most relevant to their business needs.  In doing so, we have surveyed companies across the market to find out what their top priorities are, and what challenges and opportunities they are planning to address,” says Mark Van Gorp, BBH vice president of business development and marketing. “Based on their feedback, we’re demonstrating solutions specific to reducing per-piece cost, increasing message relevancy, and improving the environmental impact from operations. We’ll be showcasing a wide range of flexible and scalable solutions that provide significant benefits regardless of the size of the operation.”

“Of equal importance to the solutions we demonstrate is the industry and technology expertise we share with companies, and what better place to get people together than at GRAPH EXPO. So this year we’re including a theater for presentations focused on customer priorities and industry trends,” added Van Gorp. “Our goal is to have visitors to the booth leave with ideas they can implement, and get them thinking about customer communications in new and innovative ways.”

BBH plans to host numerous presentations over the course of the tradeshow.  As an added attraction, Jeff Hayzlett, former CMO for Kodak and author of “The Mirror Test: Is your business really breathing?” will share thought-provoking advice on what people can do to ensure their business success.

Specific production mail solutions showcased include inserting and sorting systems, vision systems for quality and integrity verification, and ADF software for full production management.  These include:

BBH® Inveloper™ finishing system combines envelope manufacturing and mailpiece assembly into a single, efficient process at speeds up to 30,000 mailpieces per hour.  The flexible solution enables personalized, low-cost mailings for transactional and direct mailers, and significantly reduces environmental impact.

Combo14™ inserting system combines the functionality of multiple inserters with its rapid changeover from flats to letters – in minutes, rather than hours.  Combo14 is an industry-leading solution for flexible, high-speed applications.

Enduro® inserting system features an increase in cycle speed per hour from 11,000 to 13,000 and a major advancement towards increased machine efficiency. The system will showcase its Mailpiece Harmonix™ capability which enables the machine to adjust its cycle speed, without operator influence, based on the uniqueness of the application and machine performance.

Criterion APEX® sorter helps businesses achieve maximum postage discounts and satisfy postal requirements.  The system processes a wide variety of mail at very high speeds, and can be configured as a multi-line optical character reader (MLOCR) or barcode reader.

JETVision® advanced vision system enables mailers to lower costs, improve productivity, satisfy postal requirements, collect data and monitor the quality and integrity of production operations.

BÖWE One® software suite provides a single modular and scalable solution for ADF environments, helping multiple user types increase overall quality and efficiency; enhance message relevancy; provide real-time visibility and analysis; leverage and protect investments; and lower operating costs.
