Accurate plate mounting, achieving perfect register, is an essential requirement enabling a printer to produce high quality products and increased press productivity.

  • High powered video cameras (56x magnification) with fixed focal lengths mounted on ultra high precision linear bearings. Cameras open and close to cater for different plate widths and move up and down on linear bearings for the full repeat range. No telescopic lenses are used ensuring total parallelism between print cylinder and cameras.
  • Twin channel image generator creating a split in the 17" high contrast flat screen video monitor and projecting 2 crosses and/or adjustable side circles in each side of the screen for easy mounting reference.
  • Through-the-lens illumination system projecting 7mm wide light circles on to the cylinder for easer pre-positioning and for improved register mark visibility.
  • Fully adjustable left hand side cylinder support allowing the machine to easily and quickly cater for different widths of cylinder.
  • Pneumatic operation to print cylinder supports for quick and safe cylinder loading, repeatable alignment and sideway accuracy.
  • Circumferential locking device to prevent cylinder rotation when plate mounting.
  • Quick release cylinder adaptors requiring no tools and making changeover for different cylinder types a matter of seconds.
  • Simplified (single screw) camera alignment adjustment.
  • Fast change mechanism for focal distance.
  • Heavy duty CNC machines aluminium frame with wear bushes in critical moving parts.
