With more than 200 units installed worldwide, the second-generation PERSOMAIL is a proven and reliable system for the banking and ID card industry that offers fast job change-over with the highest level of data integrity, flexibility, and versatility.
PERSOMAIL is a complete, modular system for personalized printing of letter mailers used to deliver bank and identity cards. The system can work with standard cards originating from any production source, including flat or embossed formats.
A range of end-to-end system configurations is available, including card feeding and reading, personalized letter printing, along with card attaching, matching, folding and inserting components that can be individually configured for maximum flexibility.
PERSOMAIL features a modern graphical user interface designed for streamlined setup and operation, with an easy-to-operate carrier printing process based on Microsoft Word. Cards and carriers are individually tracked as they run through the system and rejected if any reading or matching errors are found. Unique to the midrange segment and ensuring end-to-end data integrity, an inline weighing system and a barcode reader can be added to the end of the line, additionally verifying the folding and envelope inserting process.
The result is a dependable, field-proven system that runs smoothly and efficiently to produce thousands of ready-to-send mail pieces.
