The latest features of this new line are meant to increase the efficiency and productivity of the whole process by simplifying the operator’s job through user-friendly approach and special units.
The Omet X6.0 integrates two new main features: first, renewed flexo groups with automatic pressure adjustment and Cruise Control, providing the possibility to automatically adapt the printing pressures at each change of repeat, material or production speed. Second, the Multivision system is utilized for faster printing register adjustment and control thanks to a set of smart micro-cameras, one on each printing unit, that enable the independent tuning of the register in real time. This reduces machine downtime and setup waste.
Omet's exclusive special modules can make even more difference in terms of efficiency and productivity: the TWIST diecutting station, with the “Easy-Change Die” system, a smart unit with double sliding cassette, enables the preparation and diecutting of jobs off-line during production. Changeover operations can also occur in less than one minute, the company adds. The Double Unwinder, a semi-automatic system that helps save time in the reel changeover operation, increases the profitability of the press regardless of run length.
Thanks to the Transparent Factory system, all Omet machines are prepared for the constant monitoring of working conditions and parameters. However, the Omet X6.0 can also count on new devices driven by the concept of Industry 4.0. An example is the use of the Smart Glasses: through the augmented reality, they can improve the overall performance of the operator with real benefits in terms of cost reduction, maintenance and productivity. The use of Smart Glasses is valuable in customer service support, since they allow for faster and more effective assistance operations.
The performance in terms of flexibility, output quality and final applications, as well as the possibility to personalize the machine configuration, managed to impress those who had the chance to see it at Labelexpo, Omet says.
