Plate Sorting for Sheet-fed Printers
Fully automatic pre-sorting of plates is a decisive factor when set-up times for sheet-fed presses are constantly reduced. Faster printing presses, shorter print runs, or a combination of presses with different plate formats – given these challenges it is essential for an efficient production process that the printing plates required for the next job are provided as efficiently and as carefully as possible.
Mistakes that occur during the (manual) handling and sorting of plates for the next print jobs are avoided, operators are left with more time for other tasks. Another advantage is the careful and scratch-free handling of the plates, especially for large plate formats. From imaging to transporting complete plate sets to the press - manual handling through operators is eliminated and scratches and other damages become a thing of the past.
