Automate print quality
Equip your press with our automated print control system on the print sleeve settings (on the print gap), slide-out ink drawers, and the innovative MPS Dynamic Print Control technology to guarantee flawless and consistent print quality at all press speeds.
- Print sleeves are loaded automatically on the print unit
- Desired print pressure settings are automatically set
APC (Automated Print Control) in print settings provides automated servo control of relevant press settings including the print sleeve and Gap Control (material thickness).
A range of press capabilities are made possible with APC including:
1. Automated loading of print settings
All print settings can be stored and retrieved from job memory. Thanks to APC, print settings can also be automatically uploaded for:
Initial jobs: print settings are uploaded out of the press calibration database.
Repeat jobs: previous uploaded print settings are stored in job memory. With a repeat job, the different print settings can be automatically loaded.
Set-up waste for both initial and repeat jobs are dramatically decreased. This makes APC a real must for today’s printing presses.
2. Customized calibration
Servo motors need to be set to a starting point, called the calibration point. APC offers pressroom managers the unique possibility to calibrate the press themselves, resulting in a perfect match to the desired working protocol.
3. Improved print quality: Dynamic Print Control (DPC)
With APC, the well known Crisp.Dot flexo printing quality of MPS presses is even more improved. With the extremely accurate servo positioning motors, press operators report a further increase of print quality at all print speeds.
AutoTeach is also known as pre-register. For instance, when you print a repeat size or a web path for the first time, you will see the print is not in register with the master. The master is usually the first colour that we print.
On the display of every MPS print unit there is a button for AutoTeach. When pushed, the print goes out of printing, makes a few revolutions, and then comes back into printing again. So after the AutoTeach procedure you will see your print is perfectly in register again.
