Tailored temperature control for the printing of banknotes
30 May 2019
We have recently supplied an Italian OEM specialized in the production of printing systems with a multi-zone temperature control unit of our newest 3FLEX line which will be included into a wider banknote printing line destined to a North African Printing Institute.
The main feature of the 3FLEX line is its total automation during the switch on & off phases: the unit is in fact able to independently control the discharge of the air from the printing cylinders as well as the cool-down phase of the line optimizing the cliché cylinders.
The system with 6 independent zones is completely monitored by a 10" touch panel reporting and controlling the operational functions (set points and alarms), as well as the flow rate and the pressure of each single section.
Another peculiarity of the line is its plug-and-play function: in fact, in case of ordinary or extraordinary maintenance, each single section can be quickly removed, thanks to the use of quick couplings on water-side and of Harting-type connections on power/signal-side; thanks to an additional spare section, the customer may then safely and comfortably complete maintenance operations.
The system is also Profinet-interfaced to the rotogravure line for the basic start/stop functions, the set-point change and the alarms control, being furthermore equipped with a remote service interface.
