Label converters and commercial printers sheeting to a registration mark on a variety of preprinted materials including holographic stock can ensure accuracy with the Cut to Register Sheeter at speeds up to 1000 fpm (308 mpm) from MAXSON AUTOMATIC MACHINERY COMPANY (Westerly, RI USA).
The sheeter utilizes a roll stand with line guidance capabilities, a sensitive scanner to detect registration marks, and a high resolution electronic drive system that hold the cut tolerance to within +0.006” (+0.15 mm) of the register mark regardless of line speed or cutoff. The drive provides an “offset” parameter to position the cut from the mark, manual Operator override, programmed rejection of out of tolerance lengths and automatic sheet squaring.
This sheeter can be outfitted with a “continuous run” feature that avoids stopping the unit when making skid changes. This permits the sheeter to be put in line with a printing press. Available in widths up to 65” (1651 mm) the Cut to Register Sheeter has a repeat of between 11” – 65” (280 – 1651 mm) long.
