Sheeter, In Line Printing Press
The MAXSON MSU Sheeter, which converts rolls of material into sheets feeding directly into the press, provides the competitive benefits of lower material cost, better yield and greater productivity by uniting the converting and printing processes. Because rolled stock is less expensive that cut sheets, printers can reduce their paper costs by 20% with the sheeter.
Outfitted with digital drive controls, sheet length is infinitely variable throughout the cutoff range. A slitting rig prior to the cutter trims oversized rolls to within 0.005” of the needed width. On a 40” (1016 mm) repeat, the sheeter is able to run at speeds up to 18,000 impressions/hour, using an accumulating festoon to match sheeter speed to press speed. For packaging applications, the sheeter can be outfitted with a dual knife rotary cutter, automatic splicing system and reject gate to realize the highest press productivity available on long production runs.
Available in various sizes, the in line sheeter can be fitted to sheet fed printing presses up to 51” x 73” (1295 mm x 1854 mm) wide format. In cases where the grain orientation is critical to post press operations, a right angle version of the sheeter is also available. The design of the sheeter permits easy retraction from the press’ feeder to allow skids of material to be run.
