Manroland web systems retrofit to reduce waste
Manroland web systems offers a wide range of service upgrade solutions to give its customers the possibility to reduce costs and increase quality – both important aspects at the highly competitive market for commercial printers. Part of those solutions is the newly developed ICCd smart – a compact version of the proven highly dynamic cut-off register control for reducing waste.
InlineCutoff Control dynamic (ICCd) is one of the fastest cut-off register control systems that is available on the market. The proven system now has been adapted to the market demands for easy, economic and fast upgrades for existing presses. The result: ICCd smart.
ICCd smart is a variety of the standard ICCd, where an existing camera at the folder superstructure is used, instead of an additional camera at the folder infeed. Hereby a highly dynamic control by adjusting the folder drive offset is enabled, what leads to a significantly lower tolerance of the cut-off register at the folding knife. Therewith a dynamic control of the entire cut-off register tolerances at the folding knife is possible. For the customer this means improved printing quality and immense waste reductions when changing the speed, after blanket washing and reel changes – manroland says these waste reductions can add up to 100%.
ICCd smart offers complete integration into Pecom-X and operation at the folder HMI. It is also connected to the worldwide online remote support of the TeleSupportCenter. An upgrade with ICCd smart is possible for Rotoman, Lithoman, and Euroman presslines that already use a manroland-ICC cut-off register control.
ICCd runs at several Rotoman presslines
Several customers have already reacted to the requirements of the competitive market and invested in the highly dynamic cut-off register control from manroland web. These are installed and already running at several Rotoman printing systems while further are in progress.
Investment pays out in just one year
“The highest benefits are the reduced waste rates. Due to cost savings, the investment has paid back in just one year,” says Josef Ellenrieder, product manager – Upgrades & Retrofits manroland web systems. “InlineCutoff Control dynamic smart enables an absolute precise folding and therewith highest product quality. With the ‘smart’ version, it is now possible for us to upgrade the system at Rotoman presslines, enabling many customers to benefit from the immense advantages.”
According to manroland web the customer benefits are obvious – a reduction of the cut-off register waste up to 100%, at a reel change 30% to 60% and after blanket washing 100%. This saves costs and brings new customers – not only by cost-per-copy but also by the increased quality.
