The Gamma features servo drives on each print head, providing pre-register, auto-register and print length control features. This, combined with the revolutionary print head design, ensures job change times and setup wastage are kept to a minimum with the ability to perform a full station colour change in under 70 seconds.
This, alongside the job storage which can store infinite jobs and production data ready to be recalled at a later date , all amounts to saving the operator time enabling them to get on with the running of the press.
The Gamma’s ‘Plug & Play’ converting section allows users to swap in and out of different converting, laminating, winding or printing options to facilitate the production of value-added products.
