Automated plate bender for single width newspaper applications.

The Burgess ANP Bender was designed specifically for single width newspapers that require precise automated plate bending at a reasonable price. The ANP uses an Electronic Edge Register systems that can be configured to match any CTP device, a perfect choice for conventional Film-To-Plate applications or CTP. The ANP is widely used as a back-up for fully automated inline plate bending systems. It is available in fully-automated and semi-automated models.

The Burgess ANP can be configured to match any of today’s plate setters that use electronic edge register for plate positioning. Electronic edge register greatly increases the productivity of the bender as the operator doesn’t leave the operators side of the bender.

The Burgess ANP Bender (Automated News Print) Operation:
While standing at the operating position of the bender, 1) The operator pushes a button to raise the electronic edge stops. The operator then manually inserts the plate and positions it against the three electronic edge stops. 2) When contact is made against the three edge stops 3) with LED lights, 4) the vacuum hold down system is activated and automatically secures the plate in position. 5) The operator pushes two buttons that retract the electronic edge stops and moves the bending cams into position. Once the bending cams are in position two rotary actuators on either side of the bending wings automatically rotate and the bending is completed.

Automatd Newsprint Plate Bender
Auto Bender Standard Features:
  • Push Button Automatic Bending
  • A PLC system controls all automated machine functions
  • "Dead Center" rotation of the bending wing around the anvil produces precision forming that results in maximum metal thickness and freedom from fracture points along bend radius
  • Non-contact principle of plate forming assures maximum plate strength
  • Heavy duty steel construction assures exacting tolerances can be held
  • Exacting tolerances guarantee parallelism of bends +/- .0015"
  • Profile of inside radius of lead edge bend is +/- .002" across entire plate width which assures optimum fit of plate to cylinder
  • Vacuum hold down securely holds plate in position
  • Choice of pin register or electronic edge stop register
