The TruColor Automatic Register System (TruRegister) is
an optional upgrade for the TG 4000 Series inspection system.
When incorporating the TruRegister System with the TG 4000
Series it is used for automatic register presetting in CI
Flexo presses. Using special printed register targets with
each job, coupled with a data communication link to the
press, the TruRegister automatically sets the colors into
the desired registration.
The special printed targets
consists of three components, a master mark and two groups
of color dots. The first group, consisting of up to 13 targets
for a 12 color job (extra target allows measurement of any
web stretch) in a single row, is used for the initial coarse
register adjustment. The second group, up to 13 targets
in a grid type pattern, are used for fine adjustment. The
designation of the targets start with the Master Mark (crosshair).
Prior to press setup, the operator defines job parameters,
including options between auto-assignment or manual assignment
of color decks. Once the target marks are located the system
automatically calculates the required register correction
for all printing stations. The TruRegister system then corrects
all printing stations using the data communication link
to the press.
> Supports jobs up to 12 colors.
> Automatic camera position to register marks with continual
auto tracking for web skew.
> Automatic camera positioning to the register marks.
> Operator adjustable offset correction via touch screen
with automatic takeover of offset values.
> TruRegister can begin calculations after 1 printed
repeat immediately after press start-up.
> Continuous monitoring of register
> Operator selectable register
> Operator manual override.
> Color definition of the targets
is not relevant if there is proper contrast.
> Interfaces to various machine communication protocols.
> Significant reduction in waste.
> Significant reduction in make- ready time during set-up.
> Improved print quality through consistent and smaller
register tolerance. Notes:
> All dimensions are in millimeters.
> Letters correspond to circle colors printed.
>Circles must be printed as solid colors.
>The number of circles printed depends on the number
of decks used in the job.
