Mounting Materials Eliminate Press Bounce
Designed to handle easily, E/bak Cushions allow for printing on rough surfaces while eliminating gear banding and press bounce. Added benefits also include decreasing plate wear and increasing plate life while reducing fluting and board crush at increased line speeds. This value performance corrugated cushion continues to provide standard quality print results, lower dot gain, and maintains high solid ink density, allowing for consistent print results over the entire press run, the company reports. They reduce operating costs by helping to eliminate problems on press with fewer press adjustments.

Multi-Sheet Detector Is Electronic
Electronic multi-sheet detector (MSD) has been introduced on the OmniFold folder/gluer. Complex setup associated with mechanical detectors is replaced by low-profile compact sensors mounted to a crossbar at the in-feed area. Sensors are wired to a control module that can be set to shut off the machine when more than one sheet tries to pass through. Waste, damaged stock, and downtime are reduced.
