Bell and Howell Showcases Highest Flexibility in an Inserting System at Drupa 2012: The Ascender 14 with Navigator and Harmonix

Bell and Howell, a leading provider of solutions and services for paper-based and digital messaging, will demonstrate to the international marketplace what has been considered by many the most flexible inserter in the industry – the Ascender™ 14. Bell and Howell is exhibiting at drupa in Hall 4, Booth A24, May 3 – 16, 2012.

“Bell and Howell’s Ascender inserters are designed for the highest possible application flexibility and output,” said Gordon J. Galloway, marketing director of Bell and Howell. “Format changeovers are simple, and can easily be done by a single operator in minutes.”

The Ascender 14 includes Bell and Howell’s proprietary Harmonix™ throughput management software and Navigator® User Interface. Navigator and Harmonix combine to dramatically increase operator productivity. This new user interface can include options such as voice control and notification, live video communication and enterprise software connectivity.

“Flexibility and integrity are critical to the modern mailing enterprise and considered a must by our customers,” added Hendrik Fischer, vice president of Bell and Howell International. “The Ascender 14 is already providing these benefits to banks, insurance companies, government agencies and service bureaus throughout Europe and Asia.”
