Mount-o-Matic Direct Drive + (MOM DD+)

The MOM is a motorized flexo plate mounter. This means the HD cameras move automatically to the exact mounting position and the rotational movement of the cylinder is directly driven. The unique features of the MOM DD+ are the pressure roller and vertically moving cylinder which allows for a fixed height mounting position.

Features

HD Ethernet Cameras

A high speed connection combined with sharp images, zoom up to 170x and a 40" monitor enables the operator to mount the plate with highest precision.

Overlay system (patented)

Once the first plate is in the right position, the overlay module enables the operator to take snapshots of the mounting marks, which are then shown semi-transparently when mounting the other plates.

Vertical movement of cylinder (unique)

This feature enables a fixed focus of the cameras. It enhances precision and optimizes the workflow.

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.

Automatic easyreg detection (optional)

Using our patented image recognition system, a visual mark on the edge of a sleeve such as W&H Easyreg strip can be automatically "set to zero" on the mounting machine by simply pushing a button.

The camera automatically homes in on the Easyreg mark and also automatically "sets zero" in X and Y direction with 0.001 mm accuracy.

Dual Drive system (optional)

This system is designed for both cylinder and sleeve compatibility.

Cutting knife, Tape applicator or Tape holder (optional)

Used to increase efficiency and ease-of-use.

Pressure roller

The roller is used to apply the plates evenly over the carrier such as sleeve, cylinder or Mylar.

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

Workflow Motorized Plate Mounting Machine

Workflow Motorized Plate Mounting Machine

The operator either manually enters the job information, or the information is sent to the machine using one of our workflow optimizing solutions. After selecting the job, the operator places the printing plate onto the table. Laser pointers aid with the initial positioning.

After positioning the photo-polymer plate, the operator elevates the vertically moving cylinder, lowers the pressure roller and rotates the cylinder using the foot pedal.

After mounting the first sleeve or cylinder, the operator clicks on the keypad in front of the machine to go to the next sleeve or cylinder. Optionally using the overlay function for perfect color-to-color registration, the operator mounts the next plates onto the next sleeves or cylinders.
