About the RoboCELL

The RoboCELL is a game-changing patented innovation that offers complete robotization of the prepress department. It includes robotic sleeve handling (RoboSLEEVE), robotic tape application (RoboTAPE), and fully automatic mounting (FAMM 3.0).

The RoboCELL is an innovative, robotic solution that fully automates the sleeve and mounting workflow, combining tape application, plate mounting, and sleeve handling using patented technology from AV Flexologic. The system eliminates manual intervention, allowing sleeves to be selected, tape applied, sleeves delivered to the mounter for automatic plate mounting, and final sleeves filed to a cart, ready for the press.
