Werosys launches the Compact Hybrid

 

Werosys launches the Compact Hybrid, which combines digital printing and flexo printing with inline converting and finishing in a single affordable system.

One of the latest innovations by Werosys is a digital UV inkjet print module to compliment the Trojan CMYK digital print engine and fully automated Flexo print stations. The UV inkjet module comes in a number of configurations with up to 6 colours and 330 mm width.

By combining the UV inkjet print engine with our fully automated flexo module and die cutting solutions, we can offer a true digital hybrid solution with integrated print and finishing for one-stop label production.

You will get a highly flexible label production system with seamless integration between digital printing and conventional press printing, thereby offering optimal production planning with fast job changeovers, reduced production costs and less waste.

Meet us LabelExpo stand 9C24 for a live demonstration of the Werosys Compact Hybrid.

Big Data monitoring is the future

 

As a company driven by Intelligent Converting and IT integration, Werosys is of course in the forefront of this development. Our machines are not only Industry 4.0 ready, we are already up and running with a cloud-based solution where we can monitor all Werosys machines installed throughout the World. We can collect data about machine performance, efficiency of different job types, waste levels, temperature profiles, etc. – and feed this back to our customers as digested data that shows trend curves of machine/operator performance, production hours to next scheduled service based on real time wear data, remaining life time on UV Lamps, improvements recommendations, etc..

This Labels & Labeling article outlines Werosys & LabelSupply’s view on future converting, which demands stronger focus on automation and Industry 4.0. With automated workflow solutions you will get numerous production advantages, such as quicker job changeovers, less material waste, and remote support and service.

Come by our stand 9C24 at LabelExpo to see a live demo of our Cloud-based Industry 4.0 solution.

 

Solar-X3 to UW Clean Energy Institute

Werosys and FOM Technologies have installed the Solar-X3 coater at the UW Clean Energy Institute at the University of Washington in Seattle.

The Solar-X3 coater is a flexible and cost-effective coating machine for roll-to-roll coating and printing of various materials, such as OPV, perovskite PV, OLED, LEC. Any coating method can be integrated into the system, including slot-die, flexographic, inkjet and laser scribing.

As all other Werosys machines, the coating machine is modular built, enabling custom configuration and future retrofitting to meet changing requirements. It is suitable for R&D purposes but also has the capacity for industrial production.

The Solar-X3 is completely digitally controlled for superior process control and data collection for documentation, analysis and optimization.

We thought you might enjoy this Labels&Labeling article about our Werosys Concept automated finishing system.

The article outlines our focus on the concepts of Cloud and Industry 4.0 when designing a Werosys solution and how this enables integration between the customer’s IT network and the Werosys finisher.  All relevant data is retrieved by scanning a barcode that points to an XML file or database on a server. The data is then used to re-configure the line for each job on-the-fly without stopping the web.

Werosys Compact Digital Print Module

Video of Werosys Compact Digital Print Module

The Werosys Compact Digital Print Module offers high speed and high quality printing and converting in one operation, as well as fast job changes. It is able to run both cost-efficient print engines, such as the TrojanThree, and high speed UV-based ink print engines.
The Digital Print Module can be retrofitted to any Werosys Compact already installed, or combined with any of the Werosys Compact modules, now or in the future. This offers a complete digital label production system at an affordable price, while still providing a system that can grow with future demand.
Later on it can be retrofitted with a high speed UV-based inkjet system, operate as a standalone digital converting line, or run in-line with any digital press from HP Indigo, Xeikon, Domino, etc.

Global launch of Werosys Compact Digital Print Module at LabelExpo 2016

Werosys Compact Digital Print Module

Based on high demand for the Werosys Compact we are continuously developing new modules to be integrated into the Compact line. At LabelExpo Chicago we are launching the Werosys Compact Digital Print Module. It is able to run both cost efficient print engines, e.g. TrojanThree; and high speed UV based ink print engines from a number of suppliers.

The Werosys Print Module is the most affordable fully integrated digital printing solution on the market. It can be retrofitted on any already installed Werosys Compact in the field, or combined with any of the Werosys Compact modules, now or in the future. This offers a complete digital label production system at an affordable price, while still providing a system that can grow with future demand. Later on it can be retrofitted with a high speed UV based inkjet system, operate as a stand-alone digital converting line, or run inline with any digital press from HP, Xeikon, Domino, etc.

The Werosys Compact Digital Print Module offers high speed and high quality printing and converting in one convenient job operation, as well as fast job changes. All web handling is controlled from the central PLC/HMI in the converting line, resulting in operator-friendly superior print quality and web handling.

Compared to add-on printing solutions, a fully integrated solution eliminates issues with missing labels or poor print quality during print engine cleaning cycles caused by inability to re-register the print. Complete synchronization between printing, semi-rotary die cut and slitting optimizes end product quality and removes problems during forward and backward motion – as well as acceleration and de-acceleration of the web.
