Features and options.
The laser systems developed exclusively by Heidelberg for the Suprasetter provide excellent imaging quality. The modular design enables additional laser modules to be easily and rapidly added on site – without long downtimes and with little service requirement. Production reliability is ensured through the Intelligent Diode System (IDS). This means that if a diode fails, operation can continue. The Suprasetter also offers a consistently high depth of focus to compensate for unevenness in the plates.
Auto/Dual Cassette loader and Autopalett Loader.
The basic model can be easily upgraded with an Auto/Dual Cassette Loader (ACL/DCL) for fully automated operation. The ACL/DCL works with one or two plate cassettes for different plate formats and types. When you use an Auto Pallet Loader (APL) you can be sure that your plate production is working with maximum efficiency because the APL can automatically load printing plates that are on a transport pallet. To make plate production even faster and ensure flexibility when using different plate formats, the Automatic Pallet Loader can be used in parallel with the Auto Cassette Loader or the Dual Cassette Loader.
Smart Plate Handling.
The Suprasetter A106/106 offer maximum convenience with plate handling by using Smart Plate Handling at every upgrade level. The Auto Cassette Loader (ACL/DCL) loading system is docked in position at the back, while the Auto Pallet Loader (APL) is docked in position at the front via a foldable transport bridge. A plate conveyor is also integrated into the auto loader, reducing the footprint of the overall system. This is an advantage compared with conventional systems, which generally have a restricted bypass operation and an external conveyor. Even with a fully automatic system, the Suprasetter allows a quick manual plate load – auto or manual plate loading are on par with each other.
The temperature of all the components relevant to imaging is maintained at a constant level. The imaging of the printing plates always takes place under the same conditions – a performance feature that is particularly beneficial for plate remakes. Any deviations caused by ambient temperature changes are avoided. This maintains the high register accuracy with the printing plates allowing a faster makeready on press and a minimum of waste.
Internal punching system.
Suprasetter can be optionally equipped with highly accurate internal punching systems. The punched plates provide maximum register accuracy. This reduces press makeready times which also minimizes waste. Additional punching systems can be added on site at any time.
Debris removal system.
The Debris Removal System is an optional vacuum and filtration system that removes loose particles and dust. When fitted with this option, the Suprasetter A106/106 is also fully equipped to process ablative plates.
