Technology made easy

Plates mount on the proofing head just like they do on the press. After only a few tries, most technicians are comfortable with how the stickyback and photopolymer plate wrap on the cylinder.

Beyond that, it's just a matter of familiarising one's self with how the micrometer settings affect alignment and nip. To load the substrate, just  tape the leading edge to the take-up spool. The gauge reads in m/min, so dialing in a speed is simple. Loading the appriopriate amount of ink on the anilox is the last significant operational issue.
