Bell and Howell will be exhibiting in booth A14:03 at the tradeshow, which runs Sept. 23-25 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Among the products and services Bell and Howell will highlight are the following solutions:

Criterion Apex® DM

Bell and Howell has introduced new technology into the Criterion Apex DM sorter that allows users to easily sort heavyweight, heavy-letter, slick/glossy, tall mail and much more. With operating speeds up to 80,000 pieces per hour, the Criterion Apex DM gives operators the ability to process more mail than ever before.

Criterion® Elevate

The Criterion Elevate sorter has been designed to meet high-speed mail processing needs of organizations with strict space limitations. The Criterion Elevate is ideal for processing various types of mail including: Vote by Mail envelopes/mail ballots, incoming mail, outgoing mail and flat mailpieces.

Parcel Managers (Small and Large)

The Small ParcelMgr™ and Large ParcelMgr systems are among the newest innovations that have been developed for the rapidly growing eCommerce parcel delivery industry. These small-footprint, stand-alone parcel sorting systems are ideal for the parcel sizes that are common in the eCommerce "Business to Consumer" or B2C delivery space. Configurable in single- and two-level configurations, these innovative products offer breakthrough productivity in encoding (scan, dimension, weight, product labeling), sorting and data management, and leverage mature software solutions and patented high-speed labeling technology.

Software Solutions (NetSort® and MMT Sabre®)

The NetSort sorting software platform is a milestone in the evolution of sorting software. Built on item-level tracking and scalable client-server architecture, NetSort enables users to realize additional discounts and revenue opportunities for postal, consolidator and private postal operators. NetSort is available as an upgrade to a wide range of sorting platforms for mail and parcels, with user-interface options that are flexible and configurable.

The MMT Sabre product has long been the industry-leading address-reading and directory look-up product for mail sorting and has evolved into parcels in the past 18 months with patent-pending innovations.

CMC CartonWrap™

This dynamic packaging system automatically boxes and labels ready-to-ship goods at up to 15 boxes per minute without manual labor. The system automates boxing and labelling — two of the most time-consuming aspects of eCommerce fulfillment.
