The preset modules boast tried-and-tested technologies from the Dymatrix 106 CSB (cutting, stripping, blanking) high-performance die-cutter such as fine adjustment of die-cutting plate position and format setting at the feeder. The chase changer and the quick-action clamping system for the stripping and blanking stations ensure short makeready times during job changes. A completely redesigned main gear mechanism increases the speed to 9 000 sheets/hour.
As with the Dymatrix 106 CSB, gearing is based on the technology used in presses, with no temperamental worm drives. Prinect integrates the Dymatrix XL 145 CSB into the workflow for maximum overall process efficiency.
Available from mid-2014, and augmenting the Dymatrix 145 CSB range, the new die-cutter offers outstanding flexibility, supporting material between 80 and 2 000g/m2 and processing materials 0.1 to 4mm thick.
Feed register accuracy and stable sheet travel at maximum speeds
The Dymatrix XL 145 CSB operates according to the proven, moving upper platen principle that delivers optimum quality even with the minimum number of break points.
With the new Dyset XL feed system, each sheet is measured optically by three cameras and circumferential and lateral registers are automatically aligned in the feeder. Sheets can be measured from the top and, optionally, from the bottom. Either the sheet edge or the printing mark or the print image is used for alignment purposes. The benefits of this dynamic alignment are maximum precision with a perfect die-cutting register of plus/minus 0.1mm, fast makeready times, and a reduction in paper waste by preventing misaligned sheets.
Thanks to a highly tolerant feeder inlet window, it’s also possible to process less accurate piles. Narrow printing marks just 20mm wide are sufficient. Like the colour and register marks for Prinect Inpress Control, these marks can be integrated into the print control strip if necessary. The positions of the printing marks can be saved and are easy to call up as preset settings for a repeat job using the machine’s touchscreen. This enables motorised camera positioning. The Dyset XL feed system is simple to operate and requires no maintenance, because all components are encapsulated. Remote maintenance is possible using Prinect Remote Service. To sum up, the machine scores highly in terms of productivity and process stability.
This is facilitated by the new pneumatic chase with compressed air, which delivers fast tool changes with excellent repeat accuracy. The chase requires no maintenance and benefits from a long service life. A high level of automation is achieved by the new function for fine adjustment of the die-cutting plate. Here, too, saving preset settings enables repeat jobs to be completed in no time at all. The compact chase changer speeds up the exchange of different cutting dies considerably and extends the die-cutter’s extensive level of automation further still.
