Our products

Product category: Mounting and registering systems

Mid and Wide Web Video Plate Mounting

Accurate plate mounting, achieving perfect register, is an essential requirement enabling a printer to produce high quality products and increased press productivity.

 

  • Two 100x magnification motorised cameras connected to precision grade ball screws which are directly coupled to positional controlled electric drives to provide highly accurate mounting
  • The drives are controlled through the intuitive HMI interface integrated within the Digital Vision System. Set up is easy and quickly adjustable via on screen icons allowing multiple positions to be set and stored. Plate positions can be input numerically, taught, or imported
  • Mounting to 10 micron accuracy*
  • Cantilever mandrel design for fast loading and unloading of all types of sleeves used
  • Manual camera operation available
  • Multiple options available
  • High strength frame for precision and durability
  • Ergonomic design with controls positioned for efficient operation

Narrow Web Video Plate Mounting

Accurate plate mounting, achieving perfect register, is an essential requirement enabling a printer to produce high quality products and increased press productivity

• Two 50x magnification colour digital inspection cameras for mounting one plate across. Each camera has a high intensity LED illuminator which generates a spot of light onto the sleeve/ cylinder to enable rapid positioning of the plate and illumination of the plate register marks

• Industrial grade fan-less computer, 2GB RAM160GB HDD, 4 USB ports, operating temperature -20ºC to 70ºC at 100% CPU loading

• A 21.5” screen with mouse displaying both camera images on a single screen• Quick release adaptors for different cylinder types, adaptor exchange is tool free (cylinder version only).

• Tool free adjustment of left hand cylinder support for cylinders with different widths or cantilever mandrel system for sleeves.

• Pneumatic detenting system to prevent sleeve rotation during mounting (option on the EES).

• Fast change mechanism for focal adjustment.

• Cantilever mandrel system for standard press type, left hand sleeve loading (sleeve versions only).

AutoMounter

  • The configuration of the AutoMounter takes a radical and innovative approach to the conventional with the mandrel mounted above the cameras and printing plate manipulators. This provides the operator with unparalleled access to the sleeve to complete all preparatory and post mounting operations whilst maintaining a modest machine footprint.
  • Automatic positioning of cameras
  • Automatic positioning of the plate
  • Automatic mounting of the plate to the sleeve
  • One button operation to position and mount each plate
  • Positioning accuracy of 5 micron
  • 50 x magnification monochrome HD cameras
  • Latest servo drive technology
  • Rapid ROI
  • International patent pending

Narrow Web Video Plate Mounting

Perfect register by fast and accurate plate mounting is essential to produce high quality print and maximise press productivity, particularly with short run work.

 

  • Two 50x magnification colour digital inspection cameras for mounting one plate across. Each camera has a high intensity LED illuminator which generates a spot of light onto the plate to enable rapid positioning and illumination of the plate register marks
  • A 21.5” screen with mouse displaying both camera images on a single screen (27” touch screen supplied for the FTS 900).
  • Industrial grade fan-less computer, 2GB RAM160GB HDD, 4 USB ports, operating temperature -20ºC to 70ºC at 100% CPU loading
  • Quick release adaptors for different cylinder types, adaptor exchange is tool free (cylinder version only)
  • Tool free adjustment of left hand cylinder support for cylinders with different widths or cantilever mandrel system for sleeves.
  • Support table integral to the design
  • Cushioned table surface ensures even plate application pressure onto the cylinder/sleeve, even in the smallest relief area whilst eliminating air between the plate and tape.
  • A vacuum assist secures the plate once in position
  • Laser for plate alignment (aligning the plate centre with the cylinder/sleeve centre when first positioning the plate)
