Spain • Comexi Group has continued its collaboration with AVT (Advanced Vision Technology) to introduce the next generation of “Cingular Real”. According to the companies, the solution aims to ensure the best-possible automatic print pressure and register during makeready.
Furthermore, the upgraded Cingular Real shall reduce waste reduction by optimizing the makeready process and enhancing communication between the AVT Argus E Turbo system and the Comexi press.
The press control automation was recently installed at Clondalkin’s Flexoplast facility in the Netherlands. Compared to the original version, the head of the Technical Department, Klaas Struiksma, noted a 150 m reduction in makeready waste and a time savings of two minutes each time the press made ready.
Moreover, Comexi argues that Cingular Real analyses the printed image pressure without the use of marks and automatically drives each printing deck to ideal pressure during the makeready process. The solution also shall compare a PDF file of the printed job and drive the press to a good registration during makeready.
Both Cingular Real and the new upgraded version can operate on AVT’s Argus E Turbo solutions.
