Method for run-time performance tuning of an inserter system

Verfahren zur Leistungsabstimmung des Kuvertiersystems während der Laufzeit

Procédé pour changer la performance d'un système d'insertion pendant l'éxecution


A method and system for preparing mailpieces (MP). An inserter system (10) for assembling mailpieces (MP) in a mailing job is controlled in accordance with a measure of the fraction of chassis cycles which are empty. The chassis speed is continually adjusted during run-time for a mailing job to minimize the number of "dry holes", i.e. the fraction of chassis cycles which do not contain a mailpiece (MP).
