The semi-automatic version of the NELA VCP for high-precision register punching and bending with optically controlled alignment of the printing plates. The ideal backup solution or if restrictions in space makes integration with the CtP system impossible.

Technical details

  • For single- and double-width offset plates
  • Optically monitored register punching and bending in one step
  • Register-exact positioning of offset plates through high-resolution digital cameras and imprinted registration marks
  • The three-point system allows pre-positioning of the printing plates and serves as a backup for the optical alignment
  • Cleaning and oiling of the punching tools before each punching process ensures the long lifetime of the equipment as well as a continued burr-free and accurate register punching
