Kern 1600 Flex

The Kern 1600 flex is characterised by high flexibility, fast changeover, maximum reliability and simple operation. It is suitable for use in the transactional and direct mail markets.

The multi-format inserting system Kern 1600 flex is available for use from continuous stack/roll or cut-sheet processing. The system is particularly characterised by the fact that the ideal system configuration for the customer can be put together from a wide variety of modules. Thanks to the multi-channel capability (up to 3 channels), the system offers an enormous range of possibilities. These are also automatically compared with each other, whether single sheet or/and continuous sheet.

The possibility of integrating up to 16 enclosure stations is particularly noteworthy. Friction feeders and rotary feeders can be combined. Thanks to the use of lamellas, there is no contact between the content and the envelope during the inserting process. This contactless inserting principle guarantees the highest reliability in the inserting process.

The system can be equipped with automatic adjusting devices ex works on request. This means that the changeover can be reduced to a few manual operations by the operator. This very short changeover time and rapid availability for new jobs is a major advantage of the Kern 1600 flex.

In addition, customers can also book an upgrade at short-term notice in times of high-performance capacities, in the sense of "speed as a service", so that customers can be even more flexible with their Kern system in terms of processing.

The system is controlled via a central touch panel. The necessary information is displayed to the operator in text and graphic form. At the machine output, the system can be equipped with the inkjet printing system Print@Exit. Like all the other systems in the Kern product family, the Kern 1600 flex can also be integrated into comprehensive workflow systems thanks to its complete ADF integration (mailFactory©).
