Palamides - Automatic delivery systems for folders and saddle-stitchers
Higher productivity, together with lower personnel costs, can result from using Automatic Stacker Delivery systems manufactured by Palamides and supplied exclusively in the UK and Ireland by Friedheim International.
With proven palamides components the Gamma has been designed for companies that have space constraint and a large number of changing jobs. The products are transferred from the previous machine, pressed, counted, measured, stacked, banded or unbanned, and laid out on a buffer table in running direction. The gamma can lay out up to 600 bundles/h per label (total up to 1,200 bundles/h).
Products to process include:
Delta – Automatic delivery
With the new automatic delta delivery the focus is on higher productivity with lower personnel costs. Sturdy, easy-to-handle stacks ensure effective removal to subsequent processing machines.
The delta is primarily a fully automatic delivery system, which streamlines the production process. Here, rationalisation is key, not bundling the packages. By using a delta at a folding machine only one operator will be required. Also, at saddle stitchers, one person can remove the stack cost-effectively even with 2-up or 3-up production and all at full running capacity. Handling the packages is quick and easy, even for in-house transfer from the folding machine to the saddle stitcher. The band merely serves as a means of relocating the products quickly, simply and efficiently.
The delta sets new standards for speed, format range and user-friendliness. With its 600 packages per hour per product stream, it puts all previous machines in the shade. With the tandem version up to 3,600 packages per hour can be processed.

Mitra – Automatic sheet stacker
The Automatic Delivery Mitra saves time and money - Many different kinds of single sheets, blanks, die cuts etc. can be stacked and buffered - up to 6 up production.
Omega – Web delivery
The omega web delivery has been specifically developed for efficient operation behind finishing lines. As production has to run as cost-effectively as possible, the delivery is an essential part of the whole installation. The omega receives the shingled stream out of the rotary trimmer. With two streams, two omega deliveries can be placed parallel, using the integrated and patented roller infeed table. On request, the products are pressed, discharged of static (so that a tidy stack can be formed), aligned and conveyed to the collection shaft. The products are passed neatly and reliably into the collection shaft, using the ingenious shingle stream stabilisers. The products do not simply fall there, but are guided in a controlled manner.

Cara - Envelope Delivery of large formats C5 - B4
The Cara Envelope Delivery, which delivers personalised envelopes from sizes C5 to B4 fully automatically, is one of a new generation of deliveries from Palamides. The most diverse sizes and types of envelopes are aligned, identified, stacked, labelled, strapped and delivered to a buffer table, all fully automatically. The whole process runs very efficiently and ensures that human intervention is scarcely necessary.
Using high quality components, together with innovative drive and transport technologies, guarantees reliability, even with the most diverse of formats and envelopes. Output is up to 10,000 envelopes/h. An extremely precise camera recognition system and the most modern of sensor technologies ensures that even the smallest of envelope bundles is assembled, strapped and delivered. As an option, the stack can also be cross-strapped. The finely tuned adjustments to the strap tension for diverse package heights also occurs fully automatically.
Sima – automatic mail delivery
The Sima Automatic Mail Delivery lines up with any inserter and automates the pre-sorting and letter tray preparation processes.
The delivery checks for open flaps, non-readable addresses, and IMB Barcodes then automatically rejects any letter that should not be delivered. Various reading systems are available for the Sima, from simple print mark readers up to a server based OCR/IMB reading system connected to the Digital Front End. Our patented collection unit safely stacks the envelopes individually- without contacting each other making twisting or interleaving almost impossible.
With this binder Palamides is moving into new directions with brand new technology for adhesive binding. ‘Smartflat’ technology allows with the new ‘Smartliner240’ perfect binder to produce books in an environmentally friendly and energy efficient way. At the same time, books will lay perfectly flat when opened. Smartflat technology allows the binding of all paper qualities, whether coated or even laminated, into an especially long-lasting and perfectly lay-flat product. This is especially important in the digital printing industry.
The Smartliner240 is a single-clamp perfect binder with an effective output of up to 240 books per hour. Automatic set-up allows easy handling for operators. The closed glue system works without heating and regular maintenance and does not have to be cleaned.
Delivery system: Automatic Tray Filler
In a live demonstration Palamides will put mail pieces, coming out of a Kern 3600, directly into post boxes. The extremely quick change of post boxes makes the tray filler essential in automated mail delivery in places such as output centres, letter shops and print shops.
The mail pieces are transmitted into post boxes according to individual criteria. As an option a postcode label printer can be integrated into the Palamides, which applies a label to the post tray. Due to the extremely short exchange of post boxes within the production process (2 seconds), lower quantities are no longer a problem. The automatic tray filler can be lined up with any inserter and automates the pre-sorting and letter tray preparation process.
The open design of the database connection allows different criteria according to the filling of post boxes by:
Automatic delivery systems for folders and stitchers
Palamides is well known as a manufacturer of automatic delivery systems that can be used behind folders and stitchers. Such delivery systems allow jobs to be produced much faster and much more cost-effectively than traditional delivery methods. In addition to a delta 705 on its own stand that will be processing very small products (60 mm x 65 mm) in up to 5-up production, Palamides will have other units operating on various stands throughout DRUPA. These include two alpha-hd’s, a delta 502 and a delta 703.
