Quick Plate Loading (QPL)
This semi-automatic plate loading enhancement uses subsystems that were initially developed for Sunday Autoplate. This enhancement is applicable to all Sunday 2000 and Sunday 3000 press systems with Omnicon Version 3. (Note – Omnicon V2 can be upgraded to V3).
The QPL can lead to up to a 40% reduction in job change time. The addition of a personnel safety mat and control code provide simultaneous multiple deplating, and unattended cylinder reversing to seat the new plate.
- Personnel-sensing safety mats
- Revised control code for plate-up
- Automatic trail edge removal
- Simultaneous unwinding of spent plates
- Automatic loading of new plate after operator hangs lead edge – including reversal process
