The integration and automation of digital imaging and LED UV exposure improves consistency and overall ease of use. This solution not only frees up valuable operator time but also reduces maintenance and the footprint of your flexo equipment.
The PlateHandler reduces the costs of operation. Integrating the flexo plate making equipment frees up 50% of your operator time to attend other and more valuable tasks (e.g. quality control, plate storage or plate mounting).
The new PlateFeeder-S feeds the PlateHandler to deliver fully automated, distortion-free plate transportation for full-size plates, boosting your flexo plate making efficiency. The latest in smart table technology, the ergonomic, tiltable table-top uses built-in sensors to accurately load and position the plate into the CDI, while free access from all sides makes removal of the coversheet more ergonomic and eliminates static charge input.
Once docked, the PlateFeeder-S is visible on the CDI touch screen and integrated into the automated workflow. This means that while the CDI is imaging, the operator has a 15-minute window to prepare and position a new plate, freeing up huge amounts of time for the operator and reducing system idle time on every job.
