AVT and Nilpeter partner to develop fully automatic register controlNew ‘D2D Register’ for makeready and running registerAVT has partnered with label press manufacturer Nilpeter to introduce D2D Register, an innovative solution for fully automatic makeready and running register control. D2D Register has already been successfully installed at a prominent packaging printer in Denmark and at other printers in Europe.Jakob Landberg, sales and marketing director, NilpeterD2D Register supports the full range of Nilpeter flexo presses from FA-4 to FA-6. Suitable for all print substrates, the system greatly improves efficiency and minimizes waste. It automatically loads the job data from the Nilpeter console to the AVT Helios, brings the press to perfect register in both X and Y axes without operator intervention and maintains accuracy during the run. The system eliminates the need to manually move typical register sensors, saving changeover time and preventing costly positional errors.
In addition to high-resolution capabilities, D2D Register features built-in full web width, digital zoom and a 22-inch 16:9 ratio viewer. The system is easily upgradable to full 100% inspection as well as a host of other options, and is supported by AVT’s worldwide sales and service organization.
Another benefit of D2D Register lies in day-to-day operations, as the solution is exceedingly easy to use. The system’s fully automatic set-up allows all operators to produce the same exemplary results, providing consistent quality and known press performance 24 x 7 across all shifts and operator ability.
Jakob Landberg, sales and marketing director of Nilpeter, states, “This new joint innovation between our two companies provides our customers with a highly sophisticated and fully integrated register control solution on our flexo press range. We have had very positive feedback from our initial installs and with the added benefit of the extensive AVT Helios production solutions, Nilpeter believes that this new product simplifies the press set-up, increases register accuracy during the run and reduces waste.”
“D2D Register offers a fully upgraded press-to-rewinder workflow connectivity solution for Nilpeter’s prestigious global customer base. This joint development is a significant advantage for both AVT and our friends at Nilpeter, who can now offer our comprehensive, 100% automatic inspection systems directly at the point of sale,” says Jaron Lotan, CEO of AVT.
Our view is that this is a logical and useful way to sell automation and register systems in particular. It is very difficult for customers to focus on third-party suppliers of increasingly necessary components and it is better to be able to talk about and buy a full solution from the press supplier. Of course with all the support of the component manufacturer and good factory fit and testing of the entire solution. NK
