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.
Workflow of the mounting machine
The operator first places the sleeve on the mandrel or cylinder on the pneumatically operated quick-lock clamping system. You can then choose between a previously created job or a new job with the motorized flexo plate mounter Upside Down . Alternatively, you can move the cameras to the mounting position using encoders to create a job without manual entry. The operator then places the plate on the mounting table which consists of a large back and front part. This enables smaller and larger plates to be positioned before mounting them on the sleeve.
Aided by laser pointers, HD Ethernet Cameras, an HD monitor and optional image recognition, the motorized flexo plate mounter Upside Down can accurately and quickly position the plate. Once the plate is in position, the sleeve or cylinders moves vertically down to fixate the plate, achieving the highest possible fixation accuracy. 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 Easy-Reg compatibility.
