The Flatmount is the all-star motorized flat flexo plate mounter for mounting on mylar sheets. It uses the latest patent technology from AV Flexologic to mount plates accurately and quickly. We spoke with our partners and customers to figure out the most requested features and options to improve our flatbed flexo plate mounter machines. As a result, this model has implemented all the elements to offer a product that goes beyond its purpose. The motorized flat flexo plate mounter machine is the optimum option for the corrugated industry.
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.
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.
To ensure highly accurate positioning, the vacuum system fixates the plate to the robotic table before positioning.
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.
For quick and easy job entry and job retrieval.
A fixed one-size-fits all mounting cylinder
Vertical movement of cylinder (unique)
This feature enables a fixed focus of the cameras. It enhances precision and optimizes the workflow.
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.
The mounting table has various special applications to simplify the mounting even more. The motorized flat flexo plate mounter machine is made of a sturdy steel frame with trespa top and is standard equipped with a so-called Matthews/Bobst locking system. Optionally you can request a clamping system and/or a vacuum system to fix the Mylar sheet on the table.
The camera rail is mounted on a high quality temperature treated and precise grinded beam. The cameras and the camera-beam construction are provided with highly accurate precision motors for computer controlled and automatic positioning.
