One of the latest purpose built solutions for the Rho 1000’s automated production processes is the roll to sheet system. It features the productivity and labour saving convenience of being able to load large rolls of paper and, without pauses in the printing cycle, receive finished sheets cut to size and ready for dispatch.
The Rho prints from a 250 cm wide jumbo roll and cuts to the required poster size using an integrated cutter. The system maximises productivity and is capable of unattended printing thus reducing labour costs.
The system offers a heavy roll device as a solution for high speed long run printing. It consists of an unwinding tool and is equipped with two dancer rollers. It will handle rolls up to a diameter of 60 cm and a maximum roll weight of 600 kg.
At the centre of the system is the Rho 1000 UV inkjet printer with continuous media transport. It is a high speed, industrial production machine capable of printing up to 500 m² per hour.
The XY cutter can handle numerous types of media with a maximum thickness of 0.8mm. Even if prints are not parallel to the web edge, or the roll is not wound straight, the cutter will follow the image or media edge. The Durst stacker will handle multiple parallel stacks at the same time and load them onto pallets ready for dispatch.
