MAXSON AUTOMATIC MACHINERY COMPANY offers equipment that permits converters and printers to produce sheets of pre-printed holographic material. Outfitted with a shaftless unwind, web steering unit, slitter rig, cut to registration system the MAXSON MDH Sheeter is also configured with an overlapping delviery system that conveys sheets to the pile without marring sensitive coatings.
The sheeter is outfitted with a high resolution scanner that can detect registration marks embedded in the holographic web. A sophisticated motion control program governs the positioning of the cross cut to maintain tolerances to within +/-0.010” (+/-0.25 mm) of the registration mark, regardless of sheet length or line speed. the ability to offset the cut a preset length from the registration mark is also a part of the program. The sheeter insures exceptional product quality by continuously monitoring the accuracy of sheet registration. Any sheets that do not maintain accuracy specification can be automatically diverted from the sheet flow to the stacker via a reject gate positioned immediately after the cutter.
The overlap carriage has an adjustment that allows the depth of the ringed roll to be set relative to the bottom slow speed tapes. This variable nip setting eliminates the burnishing on sensitive sheets caused by excessive contact with the packet’s surface. The top high speed tapes pass in between the rings of the overlap roll, removing the likelihood of belt marks.
