Mount-o-Matic Upside-Down (MOM USD)

The Motorized Flexo Plate Mounter Upside Down for flexography is a cost efficient alternative to the MOM DD+ and SAMM machine. This machine serves sleeves up to 850mm / 33.5” and/or cylinders up to 800mm / 31.5” width. The MOM Upside Down can be configured to work with a large variety of cylinder types and sleeves, making this an all-round solution to service multiple printing presses.

Features

HD Ethernet Cameras

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

Laser pointers

Designed to ensure quick positioning.

Cushioned table

This table is both a support when positioning the plate as a cushion to stick the plate onto the sleeve, eliminating air-bubbles between the flexo plate and tape.

Camera encoders

The operator moves the cameras to the desired mounting positions by merely rotating the encoder wheels.

Touchscreen monitor

For quick and easy job entry and job retrieval.

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.

Customized air mandrel or clamping system

The sleeve-dedicated machines are equipped with an air mandrel and the cylinder dedicated machines are supplied with a pneumatic clamping system.

For a sleeve and cylinder combination machine AV Flexologic's engineering team designs a special clamping system.

Patented Image Recognition (optional)

The quality control system gives an 'OK' sign when the plate is positioned within the set tolerance. This gives the operator the security that the position of the plate is correct before sticking it to the flexo tape.

This feature can be used once more as a quality check after the mounting job is finished.

Workflow of the mounting machine

Workflow of the mounting machine

The Operator first loads the sleeve onto the mandrel or the cylinder into the pneumatically operated quick-lock clamping system. The motorized flexo plate mounter Upside Down then provides the option to load a previously created job, a just created job, or to move the cameras to the mounting position using encoders, creating a job in the process, without manual entry. The Operator then places the plate on a mounting table that is constructed in a fixed working height. The motorized Flexo plate mounter Upside Down’s table consists of a large back and front part, enabling smaller and larger plates to be positioned before mounting them on the sleeve.
Aided by laser pointers, HD Cameras, an HD monitor and the optional image recognition, the operator can quickly and accurately position the plate. Once the plate is in position, the sleeve or cylinder moves vertically down to fix the plate, giving the highest possible fixation accuracy. The back-and-forth movement of the table allows for quick and easy mounting of the plate on the sleeve or cylinder. The table functions as a pressure roller to eliminate air bubbles.
Optionally, the machine can be equipped with Patented Quality Control using Image Recognition, a tape roll holder and W&H’s Easyreg compatibility.

Amcor

Amcor has been working with AV Flexologic's for over 15 years. The machines are placed all over the world in their different plants.
“In 2011 I travelled to Cumbria to see the FAMM in action at the SGS plant that serviced Amcor in the region. I was instantly intrigued by the simplicity and incredibly efficient output of the FAMM. I then travelled to Holland and viewed 2 FAMMS in operation at Elopak, again incredible output."

Boran Packaging

Boran Plastic Packaging has recently purchased a Semi Automatic Mounting Machine (SAMM) 1300 and is happy to report its experiences. The company tells AV Flexologic: “The operational effectiveness has improved significantly compared to the old way of mounting. We are especially impressed by the image recognition software that automatically detect the microdots. The quality of the process of mounting plates has never been better and we now have perfect registration and great repeatability of the mounting.”
