Wirth IRP, NELA offers an efficient solution for in-line register punching and shearing of your offset printing plates. IRP can easily be connected to one or several exposure lines and makes for an economical and fully automatic plate processing line. The IRP is equally suitable for sheetfed as for web offset printing and can handle several plate formats in one system.
In the IPR, plates are normally registered by means of a controlled 3-point stop system. The in-line punch might as well be upgraded with optical alignment, i.e. with the proven NELA Vision Control Positioning.
Trimming of leading- or trailing edge, a separation section and / or a lateral incision are possible when cutting the plates. After processing, the printing plates are automatically stored in a NELA plate stacker, which can be optionally equipped with plate trolleys.
