Two Major Announcements and High Attendance at the Kern AG Open House

You are here

September 8-11 was the highlight of the year for Kern AG in Switzerland and a total success: more than 1200 invitees came to see Kern's latest innovations. The show provided an attractive setting for our Swiss parent company to celebrate two new product announcements: being unveiled for the first time were the Kern 3600, a high-performance inserting system, and the Kern 5000 multi-format inserting system. In addition to product demonstrations, the program also included technical talks by Kern users and business partners.

Company Chairman, Uli Kern, expressed enthusiasm at the response: "For us it was a great joy and honor to be welcoming so many guests from around the world. The numbers attending exceeded our expectations."

The two product announcements were the center of attention. The Kern 3600 high-performance inserting system sets the pace in terms of efficiency, reliability and operability. The document flow principle has been further improved and optimized, automatic format adjustment assures fast changeovers, and a newly developed creasing system makes just about any kind of fold possible. The first Kern 3600 order was taken right at the open house.

Also on debut was Kern's latest multi-format system. The Kern 5000 wins out on speed and flexibility thanks to automatic format changeover. This means every application from #10s to flats can be processed through the same system. At the heart of the system lies a newly developed rotation module that transports documents straight through or rotates them by 90 degrees at the full rated speed of the system, depending on the application.

The mix of exhibition, technical talks, networking, and hospitality was well received by visitors, for whom the hardware and software product innovations and developments were just as worth seeing as the varied supporting program.
