VCPevolution HS

The high-speed variant of our reliable NELA VCPevolution is the ideal solution for all newspaper printing, where maximum plate throughput is required. The high speeds are achieved by separate punching and bending in 2 steps. The VCPevolution HS can be combined with all the modern high-speed platesetters for an efficient and economical printing plate processing line.

Technical details

  • Speed: up to 400 single plates / h (depending on machine type and equipment)
  • Handles single and double width offset plates
  • Optical monitoring of register punching and bending in two successive steps
  • Register-true positioning of offset plates through high-resolution digital cameras and imaged 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
  • Stepper motor-controlled 3-axis positioning
  • NELA VCPnet - intuitive user interface
  • Siemens S7 compatible
  • Pneumatic components from FESTO
  • Network capability via event channels
  • PC-based sequence control
  • Open integration-platform for easy integration of new applications
  • Priority-controlled alarm system: error, warning, information

Model variants

VCPevolution HS/ T:

  • Integrated plate shearing for different applications

VCPevolution HS/ M:

  • The ideal solution when several plate formats with different bend lengths and angles shall be processed
  • Driven by servo motors
  • Bend lengths and angles can be adjusted, even via remote

VCPevolution HS/ flexx:

  • Different bending radii possible
  • With fully automatic dual-radius changer, depending on the configuration on one or two plate edges

Combination of these technologies is offer to provide a solution that is perfect for you!
