Corrugated

Semi Automatic Mounting Machine (SAMM) 2500+

The SAMM Preprint is one of the top range semi-automatic flexo plate mounter equipment for the corrugated industry. The semi-automatic flexo plate mounter is available for cylinders and sleeves, combines conventional mounting with automatic mounting giving you choice regarding your needs and requirements. The automatic mounting system of the SAMM addresses the challenges of the crucial part of flexo plate mounting which is plate positioning. The positioning is done by the machine instead of the operator, this results in high quality and consistent mounting. This patented machine is unique in the flexographic printing market.

Features

Image recognition software

Specialized software developed by AV Flexologic can "recognize" the mounting marks on the printing plates, which are used as the references for the mounting process.

The ability to measure the positions not only during mounting but also after plates have been mounted, provides endless possibilities to enhance a flexo printing production workflow.

Vacuum table

To ensure highly accurate positioning, the vacuum system fixates the plate to the robotic table before positioning.

Robotic positioning

Driven by the AV Flexologic software, the robotic table positions the mounting plate with high accuracy, each and every time. After positioning the vertically moving cylinder automatically comes up.

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.

HD Ethernet Cameras

Using the latest technology in high - speed Ethernet cameras, AV Flexologic ensures crisp and sharp ultra-high resolution images, enabling an efficient and accurate mounting process.

Touchscreen monitor

For quick and easy job entry and job retrieval.

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.

Workflow Semi-Automatic Mounting Machine

The patented semi-automatic flexo plate mounter is equipped with an intelligent system that automatically monitors and controls the positioning of flexo plates. The SAMM 2500+ flexo plate mounter is designed around our two register marks system. This means the system utilizes a two camera system to aid in the accuracy of plate mounting while limiting the need for operator dependency.The only requirements of the operator are to place the flexo plate onto the mounting table and the machine will take care of the precision and mounting accuracy. This includes a pressure roller to get rid of air bubbles and any imperfections. This system is fast and reduces mistakes meaning your workflow is speed up and streamlined.

Elopak

Elopak supplies over 800 markets, which illustrates their need for an AV Flexologic FAMM in their workflow. Reinard Dreesmann, plant manager Elopak says: “Since the installation, output and quality are as expected. We mount approximately 1000 sleeves per week and mounting is considered an important part of the printing job. In the past, mis-registration often caused press down time. Now our mounting results are consisted and precise.”, in an article by Flexo & Gravure from 2008.
