WESTERLY, RI | Maxson Automatic Machinery Co. announces a sheeter specifically designed for the digital sheet-fed printing presses. The sheeter, which can accept webs to 65 in. wide webs, can convert and stack sheets to 40 in. long.
Equipped with a quick-set-up slitting rig, the sheeter is able to produce multiple piles across the width of the sheeter to maximize production while reducing run time. Energy conserving drive systems accurately and squarely produce the smaller sheet sizes within +/- 0.015 in. of the desired cutoff, reportedly eliminating the need to guillotine trim to a finished size.
The delivery system incorporates special design features to convey multiple streams of short, lightweight sheets from the cutter to the stacker. Innovative use of static eliminating systems in combination with compressed air, is said to allow troublefree sheet flow at higher speeds.
The stacking station, which creates pressready piles, utilizes similar concepts used in the delivery system to control the cut packet.
