insertering machine
« on: August 10, 2017, 10:42:13 PM »
Hello All

Just wondering for the heck of it what is the 1st Inserting Machine you ever ran.

Best things about it .

And the worst things about it.

Just thought this might be fun.
It is what it is...

muller 227. it can do a good job, but it could be a pain with certain inserts. another bad thing is having to fix the papers that reject.

Currently running the same inserter that I started on Muller 227 5 to 1 in 1994.  Had it upgraded to a 7 to 1 with pin spacing upgrade and electronic package with reject in 05.  Have enough knowledge that there is not really an insert that gives us issues.  (single sheets to packages).  Might be a pain sometimes but the company that owns us knows that I am the "go to" guy.  Can be a good thing and a bad thing.

They wanted to ship is an Alphaliner in 05 but there just isn't room in my shop.

A Harris 624.  Built like a tank, but the collector ring was a nightmare!

A Harris 8/48 double out. Best thing it got the job done and it had an ARS, was hi tech at the time. Worst thing a lot of noise. Now here in Owensboro, Ky. we run a 25 hopper,G-60 Titan, with 2 gripper deliveries.

Harris 13/72, been operating for 10 years she does the job not many draw backs, runs smooth (as long as you keep up on maintenance), easy enough to repair;unless its something big and we need to have things shipped from overseas to get her up again. only happened once in my time.

Started with a 6/24 and 13/72. Currently have the second 22/99 ever made with the very first Np 100, 14/72 and a 22 head with 4 station multifeeder Titan G60.  All have been fine equipment but most of the time it is the cheap inserts that my advertising department sells that gives the equipment the most trouble. Keep them clean, keep them greased and they will run forever.
