Automatic verifying, grouping and packaging of cards
While the production for the direct dispatch of cards to the end customer has been automatized almost completely, the packaging of cards to the indirect dispatch to a branch or local authority is still done manually. Therefore, Otto Künnecke has developed new modules for the Card Inspection Sorting System CISS for optimization of packaging of cards for the indirect dispatch, besides the systems for direct dispatch which are already part of the product range. During the manual production, the cards are mostly controlled by hand and grouped by means of a pre-printed delivery note. The end packaging is most of the time a foil envelope with an address label.
The CISS puts an end to this complex and insecure manual work process. The CISS verifies all optical and electronic data on the card and verifies it with the original data. Afterwards, the cards are grouped by branches, banded and a label with content is printed and applied to the stack. Upon requirement, the delivery note is printed, folded and combined with the card stacks. Should the mailing then be inserted into a foil envelope and a label with the address of the branch be printed, this will lead to a full optimization of the process. This enables the customer not to only save costs but also reach
