Automatic product thickness compensation for the inkjet head
Mailing route control
Up to 30,000 pc./h
Simple operating concept
1. The inlet module IN-VM/B
consisting of a diagonal sheet detection with height monitoring, ejection unit, and product centring.
2. Separation module IN-VM/C10
consisting of four separating belts connected in series, either separating the products that enter in bulk or transport the stream without separating it.
3. Turning module 180˚ IN-VM/D
The N-VM/D turning module offers the option of rotating the products by 180° in order to position the personalisation either on the cover or on the reverse side. The turning module is connected to a vacuum belt (level 1) that conveys products not to be turned straight ahead or serves as a base for an external labelling head.
4. Inkjet module IN-VM/D
As the central unit of the VarioMailer, the inkjet module IN-VM/D is suitable for all manufacturers (inkjet manufacturers) as a highly flexible conveyor base for products with different thicknesses. The module core is the dynamic product thickness adjustment “HDA” (high dynamic adjuster).
The new technology makes it possible to position the products with an accuracy of up to 0.5 mm in conjunction with high-performance inkjet systems. This is also possible for print products with different thicknesses that are delivered in quick succession.
The system is designed to allow variation of the address field position, providing enough space for a downstream UV-LED dryer module. The products are guided precisely to the left and right of the address field with upper and lower belts in the area of the inkjet head. The product thickness compensation is performed by the lower belts.
5. Feeding module IN-VM/C30
The feeding module IN-VM/C30 converts the quickly arriving single products into a continuous feed flow. A high-resolution CTS (copy-tracking system) ensures that the personalised products are assigned to the correct postcode.
6. Stacking module IN-VM/E
The IN-VM/E stacking module is a compensating stacker that fully integrated into the VarioMailer. It can turn products with different thicknesses into stable, cross-laid packages.
This machine also has a CTS (copy-tracking system) to ensure correct assignment. The machine can be optionally equipped with a camera system as well.
