For over 30 years AMS Print & Mail Specialists, located in Blaine, WA has been providing digital printing and expertise in mail creation and injection to large and small organizations all over. Producing thousands of pieces of printed material each day, from brochures to booklets, mailing to posters, variable data for all forms of document, marketing and promotional campaigns and much more.
AMS is reportedly utilizing Rollem’s Mailstream to help produce its application of tri fold mailers with a bi-directional “T” perf, folded and glued. The Mailstream operates in-line with the Advantage folder/gluer unit to feed, trim, strike perforate, fold and glue, all in one uninterrupted process in mail sort order.
Rollem had AMS’s Advantage folder/gluer built to precise specifications due to the complex folds. The application is produced near-line using a sheet feeder but can also be fed directly from digital presses such as Xerox, Ricoh, HP, Canon, KM and others.
The Mailstream system processes multiple-up mail pieces and performs numerous functions in one pass. Direct mail pieces are two-sided trimmed, gutter cut, scored and perforated, plus pattern (strike) perforating to create tear-off applications in both directions. Remoistenable glue is applied followed by folding, tip-on card inserting and fugitive spot glue closure as the final step.
These processes are all completed in one single pass. There is no other mail finishing system on the market capable of completing up to eight processes in one system.
The Mailstream will reportedly reduce excess labor costs and streamline direct mail finishing, and it is ideal for both VDP, Ink-Jet and Static Direct Mail production. The system is completely flexible as the folder/gluer unit can easily roll away folding/gluing isn’t needed. Mailstream is also customizable to meet the specifics demands of each user.
