Line Guide Sensor Increases Speeds, Reduces Cost

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK | Fife Corp. releases a new SE-46 Line Guide Sensor that reportedly reduces printing requirements and increases press speeds. Said to eliminate the need for printed elements used solely for guiding, such as “striker lines.” Advanced features can guide to existing one-dimensional graphics (i.e., bar codes) on a printed page. Requirements for printed elements are claimed minimal, including a minimum line width of 0.5 mm (0.02 in) and “smallest detectable feature” of 3.7 mm (0.146 in.) at 600 mpm. Clearance between printed elements is reduced to 0.2 mm (.008 in.), allowing further benefits and “green” savings. Higher scan frequency and a large proportional band allow for faster press speeds.
