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 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.
