PRINTING INTERNATIONAL NV/SA – Belgium Stand n°015 – B – 4
Automatic Color Registration [ACR] avoids cumbersome setup procedures, eliminating the need for technical skills from the operator. Printing plates and pads are simply fixed onto the machine and the ACR modules use specific references on printing plates, pads and product fixtures to align all components to get not only registered colours but also to place the (multicolour) image exactly on the spot where it is needed.
This ACR setup procedure is much faster and more accurate than manual setup. During production, re-calibration of the setup can be repeated if required. A complete repositioning of the image (all colours together) or adjustment of one particular colour component referenced to any other colour component is also easy to do at any moment during production and takes only a few seconds.
