Sheeter for Extra Large Format Digital Printing Offered

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Maxson Automatic Machinery Company (Westerly RI USA) has introduced to the market a sheeter specifically designed for extra large format printing presses.  The sheeter, which can accept up to 65” (1651 mm) wide webs, can convert and stack up to 144” (3657 mm) long sheets.  The sheeter configuration is in response to the Printing Industry’s trend of providing super sized presses for digital printing of posters, “point of purchase”, and vehicle banners. 

Equipped with dual knife rotary technology, the sheeter is able to cut multiple webs of paper or board, providing dust free edges and insuring high quality printability.  Energy conserving regenerative drive systems accurately and squarely produce sheet sizes up to 144” (3657 mm) long to within +/- 0.015” (+/- 0.381 mm) of the desired cut off. 

The delivery system incorporates special design features to convey long, light weight sheets from the cutter to the stacker.  Innovative use of static eliminating systems in combination with compressed air, allows trouble free sheet flow at higher speeds.  Despite the extended cut off range, the sheeter’s compact foot print and dependable operation allows the machine to be tended by one person.

The stacking station, which creates press ready piles, incorporates many of the same principles used in the delivery system to control the cut packet.  Combining a “tapes over pile” design with the introduction of ionized air between each sheet permits jam free, high speed piling.  Using the “pile offset” feature allows each pile to be centered on a pallet, to avoid the secondary operation of aerating and rejogging a pile on to another skid.
