DRIVE AND CONTROL
DCOS Drive & control systems Every printing press needs a drive and control system to be functional. The choice of partner and solution is decisive: the profitability, reliability and quality of your printing press and what it produces will mainly depend upon the automation package you select. The drive and control system is the backbone of every automation solution.
DCOS has designed a concept that covers the complexity of a modern printing press and also allows the system to be flexible enough to handle all kinds of retrofit projects with a mix of different machines-types and auxiliary equipment used in the printing process. The structure of the system is built to handle all types of options and individualities.With a mix of centralized and de-centralized intelligence, scalability becomes almost endless, from the small system with just one motor to the big press with hundreds of motors and options.
The system is module-based, each new module being carefully tested by the technicians in a controlled environment; the modules can be mixed to match the exact type of configuration required.
In the design we have taken advantage of the long-term knowledge DCOS has of building robust and reliable control-systems. By choosing proven parts from well-known suppliers we make sure our systems will be reliable and future-proof.
In our selection of suppliers we focus on finding partners with worldwide coverage in knowledge and parts. We also confirm that the parts we choose will be available on the market for an acceptable period of time. The aim is also to maximize the number of “off-the-shelf parts”, produced in large series and available worldwide, that the end costumer is not dependent on the system designer to supply spare parts.
DRCS inspection systems DRCS is a closed-loop inspection system developed in-house for the offset printing industry. It operates together with the other DCOS systems as well as a standalone application. DRCS has been developed for three main purposes, reducing start-up waste, maintaining good quality and reducing ink consumption during a complete production run.
The DRCS inspection system includes different scanning products for various applications and purposes. The system is designed to search, find and analyze specific printed register patterns in order to measure and evaluate deviations in the printed product online, immediately after the print.
The DRCS products have been developed by a unique technology that provides market-leading performance when it comes to rapidity of finding marks and measuring resolution. The system is designed for web speeds of up to 20m/s. As the competition on the market grows, DCOS stand in the frontline and offer designed products with excellent performance. Our focus is to increase customer efficiency and lower costs with an intelligent closed-loop inspection system.
At DCOS (Drive-Controls-Operator Systems) we are committed to providing inceased productivity in our customers´printing processes. Thanks to specific expertise in printing automation and many years of experience from the printing industry we offer best of breed products and solutions.
As for systems we offer hardware such as drive controls, control desks and closed loop systems as well as software for operator interface and production management. However, just as important as our systems is our dedication to always finding the optimal solution for every situation we are presented with.
Since the company started in 2004 we have helped optimize printing poocesses all over the world. We work directly with our customers as well as via network of carefully selected agents.
