Convincing Technology

Touch-screen for system operation and register display. The customized machine visualization allows detailes and intuitive system operation.

Easy Operation. Convincing Technology.

The system properties of the AR 4000 have been perfectly adapted to printing applications with the highest requirements for quality.

Intuitive operation

  • intuitive operation and clear display for an easy, fast and comfortable register control via TFT touch-screen
  • individually adaptable user interface and visualization of the resulting machine layout
  • live-color image of the registration mark field for an easy assessment of quality and position of the registration marks
  • graphical representation of register deviations for each individual measuring point
  • easy selection and simultaneous adjustment of register groups or all registers
  • fine adjustment of registers convenient by using arrow buttons or entering numeric values
AR 4000 Camera Unit

Powerful technology for first-class quality:

  • AR 4000 camera unit is a combined measurement and analyzing module in a compact design
  • RGB color camera and intelligent image processing algorithms for secure and fast register mark detection even with rough material structures or poor contrast
  • Dual-Xenon flash for optimal lighting even with critical substrates and reflecting materials
  • synchronized shutter for absolute insensitivity to extraneous light
  • large camera field of view for reliable detection of registration mark field, even with dynamic web stretching processes

Options

  • adjustable through light back strobe for safe registration mark detection of low contrast inks on transparent substrates or for front-to-back register control
  • control module for detection and analyzation of semi-rotative processes
  • sensor traverse for comfortable, lateral positioning of the camera unit
  • operator desk in a width of 800 mm

AR 4000 at a Glance:

 Clever planning:

  • one measuring head model for all register control points (web-web and web-cylinder) - one mark field for control of color, front-to-back and cut-off register
  • proven BST eltromat register micro-marks with diameters of only 0.5 mm - 2 mm; flexible arrangement of mark field in web running or lateral direction; different mark field configurations for an optimal adjustment to the particular environment
  • no additional marks with control of tool stations and additional printing units
  • front-to-back register control by web-cylinder measuring method independent of the material (transparent/opaque); optional web-web measuring process in combination with back strobe
  • web-web measuring method for additional printing units such as flexo printing units; web-cylinder measuring method for transparent varnish and tools
  • up to 12 color controllable by only one camera unit
  • up to 10 camera units for max. 24 control stations for a
  • precise register control at complex printing machines with a lot of color units and tools
  • intelligent camera unit integrates mayor system components and usually avoids the need for an additional panel
  • open system architecture for flexible machine integration
