Turbo 8G

High efficiency equals unparalleled throughput. Inspired by that simple formula, we designed the Turbo® 8G inserter with intuitive innovations and raw performance power to deliver results that can make a big difference in high-volume document processing operations.

Combining trademark Bell and Howell processing intelligence with a forward-thinking design and maximum inserting speeds of 26,000 envelopes per hour, the Turbo 8G inserter streamlines workflows and exceeds expectations. It’s just another way we’re helping transform high-volume mailing.

Designed to provide a competitive cost-per-piece advantage, the Turbo 8G has proven to be the world's most trusted high-speed inserting system. The Turbo 8G maximizes profits for our valued customers by using innovative, cost-saving technology, such as BIPS®, which minimizes system setup durations and maximizes system availability.
