Automatic Mounting Machine (SAMM) Postprint

The Automatic Flexo Plate Mounter Postprint is one of AV Flexologic’s most advanced mounting machines for mounting flexographic printing plates onto mylars. The machine is currently a leader in automation in the corrugated postprint industry.
• The Automatic Mounting Machine for the corrugated postprint industry
• Accurate mounting and positioning down to 5 microns
• No mounting related press downtime
• Operator dependency is minimized
• Extremely fast

Corrugated Portfolio



Carminati & Guizzardi is an Italian company, which is present in the market since 1960. They were the first to introduce the hand-cut rubber printing plates and now provide services related to Pre-Press, Pre-mounting, Cleaning and Storage of mounting plates.

Carminati & Guizzardi has purchased a Postprint SAMM 3000.

E.C. Shaw Company

E.C. Shaw Company decided to invest into the corrugated market and modernize the entire mounting process. The company was seeking an innovative solution, which will enable them to exceed their customer’s expectations and boost efficiency.

For that reason, AV Flexologic provided  E.C. Shaw Company the automatic SAMM PostPrint 3500 for the corrugated industry. The machine saves money, time and reduces press downtime.

Image recognition software

Specialized software developed by AV Flexologic can "recognize" the mounting marks on the printing plates, which are used as the references for the mounting process.

The ability to measure the positions not only during mounting but also after plates have been mounted, provides endless possibilities to enhance a flexo printing production workflow.

Vacuum table

To ensure highly accurate positioning, the vacuum system fixates the plate to the robotic table before positioning.

Quality report

After each plate is mounted, the machine has the ability to automatically check the tolerance of mounting plates using image recognition.

A pdf quality report is generated on-the-fly with ability to check top and bottom.

Pressure roller

The roller is used to apply the plates evenly over the carrier such as Mylar.

The use of the pressure roller eliminates the typical "hand-rolling". The feature saves time and avoids un-ergonomic working procedures.

Touchscreen monitor

For quick and easy job entry and job retrieval.

A fixed one-size-fits all mounting cylinder

A computer controlled electronic motor directly drives the cylinder (gearless). The mounting cylinder is standard provided with a locking strip for the so-called Matthews or Bobst system, however other systems can be realized as well.

The software automatically calculates any distortion based on the information provided in the job (mylar thickness, etc.). Distortion is then digitally compensated. This one mounting drum is thus suitable for all presses.

Digital calibration of camera beam (patented)

The camera images are used in a calibration procedure to create a lookup table to digitally ‘straighten’ any deviations in the camera beam, down to 10 μm over the entire width of the camera beam / sleeve.

Workflow optimizing solutions

Workflow optimizing solutions

The SAMM PostPrint 3000 is designed to increase the mounting speed of flex plates onto mylar in a number of ways. Aside from the mounting process that is streamlined for the corrugated industry to contain limited steps, the SAMM 2.0 flexo plate mounter has these features for measure:

  • Compatible with ESKO PlatePatcher and Hybrid Patchplanner software
  • Compatible with most PDF type workflows. The machine can import the output file that contains the positions of the mounting marks. The cameras automatically move to the correct mounting positions.
  • Connections with ERP settings for job entry
  • Barcode scanners to pull the job information with the coordinates from your database
  • Remote support through internet
