If all parts of a press are geared together, start together, stop together, and change speed together, then why should there be any material waste besides initial setup? Because the web is not always doing what the press is doing.
The amount of material used during make-ready, the running waste due to floating registration, the hundreds of feet of material used to regain registration after stops or web splices, can all be contributed to web tension. Put a price tag on this waste and the dollars add up fast. The SV revolutionize this process.
Using a proprietary algorithm, the SV provides web tension control by precisely metering materials into a press and taking into account the elastic properties of the web. The principles behind this are simple – maintain web tension by forcing the web to do exactly what the press does in terms of timing, speed, acceleration and deceleration. Basic tension systems fail at this because they are not dynamic enough to match the press’s running conditions.
Automatic tension systems are better, but still flawed; They measure tension then adjust tension. To adjust tension is to adjust the speed of the web. Why would the web speed need to change if the press speed remained the same? Because the system lags behind the press and it needs to compensate for its own error.
The magic happens when using the “re-register mode.” The SV turn your limited press into a limit-LESS press. Re-register mode automates all functions to .0015 “ resolution with no speed restrictions.
Set up is as easy as 1,2,3.
- Input the plate or die cylinder circumference.
- Set the mark sensor.
- Make ready as normal.
Using more than one roll.
- Stop the press.
- Splice the new roll.
- Bring your press up to speed fast.
