MOM TableTop 600 MKII
A flexographic plate mounting machine for mounting flexographic plates in the narrow web industry. An effective and easy-to-use system to mount flexible photopolymer printing plates extremely accurately, direct in register on the plate cylinder.
The system is based on two co-ordinates (register-marks, that have been applied on the printing plate perpendicular to the making direction). The plate cylinder is placed and fixed onto on adjustable and one fixed cylinder support bracket.
The Mount-O-Matic Table Top is provided with two cameras and a split-screen monitor. Standard enlargement of the system is approximately 8 times by means of the zoom lens.
The two sideways moveable cameras, mounted on a rail above the cylinder, register half an image on the monitor. That means that the left camera shows half of the left registermark and the right camera shows half of the right registermark. When the cameras are placed in the correct mounting position, the two halves will be visual as one complete registermark. This means that, by moving the flexible photopolymer printing plate into the correct position, they will be mounted precisely perpendicular. IN this position the cameras are fixed so that the 2nd, 3rd etc. plate cylinders are mounted in exactly the same way.
The Tabletop 600 MkII is a very solid, stable and universal mounting system that can also be equipped for printing cylinders without shaft and / or for sleeve cylinders. Alterations to design, construction and dimensions can be made.
The 'Overlay' Module is an Active control designed to aid in the process of mounting. The Windows interface is easy to use, improves accuracy and efficiency by using digital proofing.
