Automated print settings
APC (Automated Print Control) in print settings provides an automated servo control of the relevant press settings. These press settings include:
The advantages of APC provide a range of press capabilities:
1. Automated loading of print settings
All print settings can be stored and retrieved from job memory. Thanks to APC, print settings can also be automatically uploaded for:
Initial jobs: print settings are uploaded out of the press calibration database.
Repeat jobs: previous uploaded print settings are stored in job memory. With a repeat job, the different print settings can be automatically loaded.
Set-up waste for both initial and repeat jobs are decreased dramatically. This makes APC a real must for today’s printing presses.
2. Customized calibration
Servo motors need to be set to a starting point, called the calibration point. APC offers pressroom managers the unique possibility to calibrate the press themselves, resulting in a perfect match to the desired working protocol.
3. Improved print quality: Dynamic Print Control (DPC)
With APC, the well known Crisp.Dot flexo printing quality of MPS presses is even more improved. With the extreme accurate servo positioning motors, press operators report a further increase of print quality at all print speeds.
