QuadTech® Autotron™ 2600 with ClearLogic™

For Packaging and Converting

The Autotron™ 2600 with ClearLogic™ Register Guidance System is an integrated, flexible and cost-efficient tool for minimizing waste and improving print quality across packaging and decorative printing applications. A new generation of scanning heads lets you achieve complete control regardless of substrate, ink, or printing technique.

Features

    Autotron™ 2600 Overview Screen
  • The new user interface, ClearLogic, features user friendly screens that require fewer touch strokes, making set-up easy and quick for the operator.
  • Specialized solid-state scanning heads can detect a wide range of pale and low-contrast marks, including detectable varnishes, lacquers, UV inks, and cold seals.
  • Unique control algorithms automatically adapt the system to changing press conditions, ensuring optimum control during all phases of press operation.
  • Mark-recognition system locks on to even low-contrast marks at makeready and provides secure mark localization and control throughout production.
  • A library of more than 40 different register-mark types combines with flexible mark positions to help ensure excellent results regardless of the materials and processes involved.
  • Packaging-specific software is effective for a variety of materials including foil, film and paper, as well as for nonprint processes such as die-cutting.
  • Additional scanning heads allow for high-precision relative monitoring of the print length process, providing assurance of repeat accuracy.
  • A front-to-back option ensures precise register between surface and reverse side processes, such as gluing and cold seal, to ensure a high-quality end product.
  • Register control is streamlined over the full range of inline and nonprinting processes, from diecutting, sheeting and embossing to gluing, varnishing, lacquering, and cold-sealing.
  • The next production can be set up while the current job is running, to speed makeready and optimize utilization of your costly equipment.

    QuadTech® MiniCam
  • This preset capability combines with stored job parameters and compensator prealignment – all driven by an easy-to-use graphic interface – to further streamline makeready.
  • Scanning-head set-up is fast, easy, and calibration free, to minimize the downtime associated with job changeovers.
  • Register corrections can be made at variable control speeds – regardless of substrate, change of press speed or other tension issues – for on-target register control and reduced waste.
  • When switching between paper and film/foil modes, programmable scanning-head selection allows ultrafast makeready and a quick transition to the new production substrate – without the need to stop the press.
  • Driven by a simple-to-use touchscreen, the intuitive Autotron 2600 with ClearLogic interface takes the guesswork out of system operation.
  • The touchscreen can also display performance analyses on the last 500 revolutions of the print cylinder.
  • Our remote unit panel serves as an extension of your main display for more convenient and efficient operation.
  • Its comprehensive mark library also allows you to start controlling register without the need for re-engraving cylinders.
  • A wide range of low-cost MiniCam heads covers all packaging and decorative print applications. With only one or two types needed by most printers, this provides dramatic cost savings and ROI over competitive systems.

Benefits

  • Head changes are swift and easy, speeding job throughput. New heads can be added at any time to expand capabilities.
  • Advanced corrective algorithms maximize press output and utilization.
  • Working with drives manufacturers, this system also allows you to control the full range of inline processes, either to a rewinder or to the finished product – including die-cutting, sheeting and embossing.
  • With the ability to correct register at variable speed, our compensator drive option is a cost-effective way to gain efficiencies on a lineshaft-driven press.
  • The system's modular design and clearly defined upgrade path will allow you to keep your Autotron 2600 with ClearLogic operating at the leading edge of performance for many years to come.
