Step 1 – Lay printing plate on vacuum table: Roughly locate
plate front and center on mounter table and touch “Next Auto
Step.” Accurate placement is not important; as the mounter
will accurately straighten and mount.
Step 2 – Touch Registers: Camera automatically moves
near each register and operator verifies by touching register center
(magenta + where touched). Because the camera can moves automatically
in both the X and Y direction, registers may be located anywhere (by
angle) on the plate.
Step 3 – Plate automatically straightened; touch “Accept” button: The
printing plate is automatically rotated (oriented straight) and vision
system verifies rotation to the operator, measuring to within +/-.0002” of
Step 4 – Initiate automatic mount and proof sequence
with touch screen button: Printing plate is automatically mounted using
pressure roll for even, bubble free mount. The vision system
then verifies the mounted register location and records it in the database
where it may be examined at anytime on any networked computer.
