NEC delivers latest Mail Processing Systems to Norway Post
NEC has handed over two advanced Flat Sorting Machines (FSM) to Norway Post (Norway’s national postal service), marking the conclusion of a project that started in July 2008. Each machine is equipped with 4 high performance feeders that make use of the latest technology to allow a feed-in rate of 10,000 items per hour across a vast range of sizes and materials, such as paper envelopes, plastic wrapped mail and open magazines, which enables a total machine throughput of up to 40,000 items per hour. Each feeder is equipped with a tray unloading and mail feeding assist robot that is designed to ergonomically assist machine operators and maintain optimum system performance.
The FSMs are in operation at the new Oslo Sorting Center, which officially opened with a ceremony attended by the King of Norway on 29 January, 2010 and will process 60% of all Norwegian mail. The center’s two FSMs reached full operation in May 2010 and represent the 3rd and latest generation of machines developed by NEC, which are characterized by high performance and an ergonomic design
