Semi-Automated plate bender for single width newspaper applications.

The Burgess Semi Automated Bender for newspaper is a highly advanced, precision engineered machine for use where four color registration is extremely critical and exacting tolerances must be maintained. Burgess offers a Holes Over Pins System for traditional film based analog workflows.

Semi-Auto Bender w. Pin Register Operation:
First, standing at the operating position of the bender, the operator slides the plate into the bender and pushes a button to raise the register pins. Next the operator moves to the pin register side of the bender and manually positions the register control holes in the plate over the bender pins. Then the operator returns to the front side of the bender and pushes the two cycle buttons simultaneously, which activates the vacuum hold down to secure the plate in the bender. This also automatically lowers the hold-down clamps and bending wings into position and retracts the register pins. Then, the operator manually rotates the counter-balanced bending wings and bending is complete.

Semi Auto Bender Standard Features
  • A PLC system controls all automated machine functions
  • Manual Plate Loading and Bending
  • "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
  • Profile of inside radius of lead edge bend is consistance which assures optimum fit of plate to cylinder
  • Vacuum hold down securely holds plate in position
  • Pin register systems
  • Optional automatic pneumatic actuation
  • Automatd Newsprint Plate Bender
  • Length 59", Width 35", Height 46"
  • Compressed Air: 90 psi @ 5 cfm
  • Electrical 115/220v - 50/60 HZ
    • Max plate size: 24"x39"
