AV Flexologic offers a full range of flexo plate mounting machines, from completely manual to fully automatic. This section describes the 4 different concepts that can be identified in flexographic plate mounting machines, from entry-level to fully robotic:
Manual mounting is done with a basic machine. This machine is used for mounting one plate at a time and long job runs.
The cameras, cylinder rotation and vertical movement of the cylinder are motorized. The front and back table support enables the operator to achieve high precision mounting and optimal plate positioning.
The machines have a robotic mounting table to position the plates based on measurements coming from the image recognition system. Because of that, operator dependency is eliminated and a higher efficiency and accuracy of the mounting process is ensured.
The operator only puts the plate on a conveyor belt and the machine does the rest, which results in optimal operator efficiency, speed and quality. Ideal for customers who mount a large amount of sleeves per day, and/or a large number of plates per sleeve.
