How do I choose the right narrow web flexo plate mounter for my business?

Choosing the right narrow web flexo plate mounter for your business requires careful consideration of several factors. Here are some key points to help you make an informed decision;

Web width and repeat length: Consider your printing press’s overall cylinder width and repeat length. 

Mounting accuracy and registration: Look for a plate mounter engineered to deliver consistently high mounting accuracy to ensure precise print registration. This is crucial for achieving consistent print quality and minimising waste.

Automation level: Consider the desired level of automation in your production process. Depending on your workflow, efficiency goals and operator skill levels you can choose from manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic plate mounters. Automated systems ensure mounting consistency and eliminate the risks of operator error.

Ease of use and maintenance: Evaluate the user-friendliness of the plate mounter, including the ease of operation, training requirements, and maintenance procedures. A user-friendly and reliable system can minimise downtime and improve overall efficiency.

Cost and return on investment (ROI): Compare the cost of different plate mounter models and consider the long-term ROI they can provide. Look for a balance between the upfront investment and the potential productivity gains, reduced waste, and improved print quality. Investigate the ongoing support costs and lifetime of the equipment.

Reputation and support: Research the manufacturer’s reputation and consider their after-sales support and service. A reliable and reputable manufacturer will ensure ongoing assistance, spare parts availability, upgrades and technical support.
