JM Heaford (stand 7D33) will launch its latest innovation, the ‘Label AutoMounter’, at Labelexpo Europe. This label version of the AutoMounter builds upon the success of the flexible packaging AutoMounter which was launched at last year’s DRUPA. The AutoMounter allows label printers to reduce their press downtown due to miss-mounted plates to zero.
Building upon the idea to place the cameras below rather than on top, as seen on the company’s FTS mounter, JM Heaford developed this innovation further to build the AutoMounter. The plate is roughly positioned on the manipulators, the operator presses the foot pedal and the AutoMounter then takes over and will mount the plate within a positional accuracy of +/- 5 microns. Each plate takes less than one minute to mount and requires no skilled input from the operator. Effortless and efficient in operation with an easy to use multi-lingual graphic interface, the AutoMounter can be used both in manual and auto-positioning modes. Set up is straightforward either by co-ordinate import, manual programing or by teaching.
The user-friendly vision system allows ease of operation with the ability to store and recall over 10,000 jobs.
A return on investment calculator is available based upon press optimization and skilled labor savings.
