UTR Main Conveyor (UTR) The UTR conveyor is the basis of a mailroom, enabling to evacuate the press at its full speed (up to 90’000 copies per hour). The conveying system can be controlled via the Forwarding station. Check copies can be taken at the forwarding station or in the control room. Start-up waste, splice-, skewed and offset-copies are automatically recognized and released into a waste container at the Forwarding Station or at designated location in the conveyor line. Only correct copies are counted and conveyed to further processing systems. 1.1 Forwarding Station (AU2-MNK) The forwarding station takes the copy stream directly from the folder delivery and transfers the copies to the universal conveyor. The forwarding station mainly consists of: ? self-supporting machine frame ? double roller pressing device ? side joggers for copy alignment ? copy transfer device with pacer chain ? main drive motor for universal conveyor ? 1:1 and 2:1 product gripping mode ? integrated check copy extraction ? conveyor control ? offset frame for different formats 1.2 Conveyor Track Routing For the flexible adaptation to individual building design requirements.

It is unique the way it is operated. The Navigator features the revolutionary Flying Frame Technology, where an operator can intuitive browse through the various menus which are all up-dated in real time. At the forefront of this development are simplicity and the convenience of the user interface. The Navigator enables centralized operation on one screen per line. Thanks to the intuitive operator guidance, production with the Navigator can be started immediately, without extensive clarifications. 4.1 Navigator The NaviSet, NaviRun, NaviQ and NaviSafe are all applications which run parallel and can be operated via the optional touch screen. The production is “Drag and Drop” operated. Routes, agents or loads can be simply selected by hand and put into production via a mouse click. Production progress is continuously updated and the production times of the Respective routes and agents are recorded. With the Online Editor, the number of copies per route, bundle parameters and many other attributes of the production data can be easily edited. NaviSet: Responsible for transferring and processing distribution data in the Navigator: ? Automatically from the distribution system via Ferag string ? Manually via Excel files or alternatively by manual entry ? where there is no distribution system present ? for external orders NaviRun: After selecting and confirming the production configuration, NaviRun monitors current events in the mailroom and provides real-time information to the operator: ? Speed display ? Visualise production progress (comparison of target / actual, and remaining quantity) If needed, other actions can also be taken, such as: ? Changing route sequences ? Bundle-specific moving of routes ? Reproducing bundles Page11 NaviQ: Real-time quality control, precise down to the single copy, in real-time or archived with the relevant reports. NaviQ offers an open interface for exporting data to Excel or CSV format: Route report ? shows the start and end times of the produced routes Bundle report ? can be monitored right through to the loading bay ? production time in the MultiStack ? topsheet applied Y/N ? identification of missing bundles, e.g: ? quality issues ? fault on downstream machine ? manually removed bundles Production report Visual display of production progress with target / actual comparison Navi-Safe: NaviSafe guarantees very high production reliability and easy data access: ? Remote access via VPN connection ? Integrated backup with redundant functionality ? Open database for external access 4.2 NAVIGATOR Server NAV-SRV-OHW The Navigator Server NAV-SRV-OHW hosts the central production database and allows the coordinated production for all connected NAVIGATORS. The NAV-SRV-OHW allows the Allocation and re-allocation of production data from one line to another. It eliminates the risk of unwanted double production and does not require any mobile data carrier to shift production data from one line to another. All production relevant data are recorded on the Navigator Server and enable the provision of combined production reports over all lines, including: ? 1x NAV-SRV-OHW software package for the central server Page12 The dedicated hardware for the central server of the NAVSRV-OHW is supplied by the purchaser in accordance with Ferag’s hardware specification).
