AV Flexologic – launches new semi-automatic mounting machine, claims it to be the world’s fastest
FRANCE • Presented to the public for the first time at the All4Pack 2016 in Paris, France, the new SAMM 2.0 is Flexologic’s newest automatic flexo plate mounting machine. The company claims it is fastest mounting machine in the world, featuring a mounting speed of only 30 seconds per plate.
Among other features, the machine is equipped with AV Flexologic patented image recognition software using an ultra-HD Ethernet camera, a robotic mounting table, a full-width automatic pressure roller, and automatic quality reporting.
These features, according to Flexologic, result in streamlined workflow combined with consistency and increased operator productivity. The company claims that additional benefits of automatic mounting with the SAMM include faster press startups, reduced changeover times and reduced mounting operator dependency. The elimination of bottlenecks in prepress and the ability to measure as well as record mounted plate tolerances down to the micron improves traceability and reporting possibilities.
AV Flexographic will be attending DFTA Proflex in Stuttgart from 08.3 to 09.3. During this time, company sales managers will be ready to provide any requested information about their machines and products.
