As a unique Print Tower for digital printing, the M-Tower™ includes mountings for inkjet heads, dryers, speed encoder, cue mark sensor and guarantees optimised reliability and operability.
The M-Tower is primarily designed to complement the Matti Imprinting Solution - together these products can be used in a multitude of ways to achieve almost any task, be it in a standalone context or inline with an offset or flexo press.
The paper is typically pulled by the host system, e.g. offset / flexo printing presses or finishing lines and can run up to approx. 1000 ft/m (300m/min).
The M-Tower comes with 20.5” (520mm) or 26" (660mm) as the standard web width. Other widths can be manufactured upon specific customer requests.
Printing on both sides of the paper requires 2 Towers / Twin-Tower configuration with a turnbar, integrated into a walk-over between the towers, as depicted below.
The design of the system is implemented in a modular way: infeed / outfeed, dryers and web guide can be installed only if the application requires.
The integrated dryer uses the latest Matti infrared technology and can be either IR at around 2.1 microns wavelength or NIR with typically a lower wavelength.
Precisely manufactured Inkjet head mounts guarantee perfect stitching and alignment of each head and are available for all common sizes of printheads and Matti printbars. Depending on the number of heads installed, there are various means to access them for easy cleaning and inspection.
Different applications need different M-Tower configurations:
Standalone press, combined with Matti Imprinting Solution: Together with the Matti Imprinting Solution, the M-Tower can be used as a standalone mono press. Either a simplex or duplex version can be implemented, suitable for web widths of up to 520mm (20.5") with a print width of approx. 430mm.
Inline, combined with Matti Imprinting Solution: This configuration is used to enable variable data printing on standard offset or flexo presses. Typically employed inline with legacy press.
