Advanced Mailing Solutions is pleased to announce the installation of what is understood to be the largest and one of the fastest polywrapping lines in Scotland.

With 13 insert stations capable of inserting or onserting stock from A6 of A3 in size, the Buhrs BB1000 (upgraded to BB3000 specification) is certainly capable of fulfilling even the most complex of polywrapping requirements, including the inserting of CDs or other hard-backed items.   And with impressive operating speeds of up to 13,000 wraps per hour, any project size can be fulfilled within the tightest of timescales.

However, what sets the BB3000 out from the competition is the BuhrsWrap feature. This innovative development greatly improves the presentation of journals, magazines and other quality media products by wrapping the product without the traditional flaps. BuhrsWrap protects the mailpiece from possible damage and the enclosed materials from sliding. The absence of flaps also means that less poly is used providing a more environmentally option. However should a traditional flap be required then a simple switch enables a conventional polywrapped mailpiece to be produced.


Furthermore the BB3000 comes with an Easy Opening option that can provide a longitudinal perforation, enabling simple opening of the pack.

Buhrs BB1000 – Technical Specifications

  • Mechanical performance - max 13,000 envelopes per hour
  • Number of inserts - up to 13
  • Poly and paper thickness - poly 15 - 80 micron
  • Product dimensions: - min. single sheet (60-80 grams/m2)- max. 35 mm
  • Product thickness - max. 25 mm / 1.0"
