The patent-pending SteadyPrint technology monitors and reduces bounce in real time

Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, is pleased to announce the launch of SteadyPrint, a new anti-bounce feature that is now part of the Fusion series of flexographic presses. SteadyPrint helps to mitigate the challenges of bounce and further enhance the Fusion’s ability to produce high-quality output through a wide speed range.

2018 06 27 092427“Printers have historically faced challenges with printing certain bounce-causing attributes of brand images,” shared Dave Wall, PCMC’s Printing, Coating and Laminating Value Stream Leader. “Through a complete review of mechanical and controls design, the team has developed a design package that will help to mitigate those challenges.”

SteadyPrint enhances the design of mechanical elements to minimize the effects of forces experienced during printing. The technology monitors and reduces bounce in real time, reduces press vibration and noise, and allows printing through speed ranges without changing impression.

“PCMC always takes the time to listen to and learn from the industry and our customers,” said Rodney Pennings, PCMC’s Printing, Coating and Laminating Sales Director. “This new technology is something that our customers were telling us was a need. We’re excited to be able to offer this addition to our presses.”

SteadyPrint will be a standard feature on all Fusion presses moving forward. Customers can view this technology in person during Impact, an event hosted by PCMC at its Green Bay headquarters on August 22, 2018.
