For lightweight paper applications, add the optional Buffer 530 to the Stack 566 system. Positioned between the printer and the Cutter 561, the Buffer 530 accumulates the lightweight paper web and weaves it through rollers that rise and fall, filling the buffer and allowing job delivery without stopping the printer.
The Merger 535 option allows a 2-up printed web to be slit and merged into a single, collated paper stream. Positioned between the printer and the Cutter 561*, the web enters the Merger 535 and is slit in the center. A sensor continuously monitors the web for side-to-side variations or movement and the slitter automatically adjusts to cut precisely at the center of the web. The resulting two webs are then merged right-overleft or left-over-right, depending on the requirements of the application.
*Pinless slit merge applications require the Cutter 562.
Same features as the Cutter 561, plus the ability to process pinless slit merge applications.
Capture large, high-resolution images of the entire web with no operator adjustments. WebVision reviews bar codes for readability, detects small image artifacts, and more.
