Intelligent AV Flexologic software recognizes any mark, consequently the SAMM positions the plate with a precision down to 5 microns. After mounting an automatic quality check is done, using image recognition, to ensure the precision of the mount.
Workflow Semi-Automatic Mounting Machine
The patented SAMM is equipped with an intelligent system that automatically monitors and controls the positioning of flexo plates. The system is based on two co-ordinates (register-marks) applied on the photopolymer printing plate perpendicular to the print direction. Due to the iteration between the cameras and the self-moving mounting table the plates will be positioned extremely accurate.
After the positioning the vertically moving cylinder elevates automatically. Subsequently the operator lowers the pressure roller and rotates the cylinder using the foot pedal. The automatic positioning of the plates together with the mounting by the operator results in consistent high quality and constant repeatability.
