Configured to match your Web or Sheetfed Plate Punching Needs

Custom Punch Systems
CTP has changed the punching needs of customers by requiring the punching device to bridge the gap between digital and traditional processes. Burgess specializes in manufacturing custom-engineered punches to accommodate any customer requirements for all sheet fed and web applications.

Burgess can design a punching system that incorporates the requirements of both CTF and CTP imaging system’s, along with single or multiple press requirements.

Burgess Industries designs and manufactures a complete line of standard and custom register punching systems. We can design a system for you that incorporates all your punching requirements including:
  • Sheet fed and web plate punching
  • Stripping materials punching
  • Illuminated punches for film image-setters and/or camera film
  • Transfer punches for image-setters
  • Step and repeat chase punches
All Burgess "Print Control" Press-line, Straight-line, Web-line and Radial-line Register Systems Offer Unique Features And Options

Our plate punch products are built for names like Komori, Goss, DGM, KBA, Man Roland and Heidelberg - Web Press and Sheet fed press alike. Burgess punching modules adds tremendous flexibility and maximizes the imaging capability of any CTP imaging device. Robotics are used for plate register and positioning. Notch configurations are easily changed, expanded or re-configured.

Inline punching for printing platesThe Burgess Work Flow In-Line Punch System is configured to match the customers specific press requirements. The punch design has the capability to provide register notches for multiple press configurations. The punch can receive information from a bar code patch, which will set the configuration that the plate requires.

Multiple press/punch configurations for both sheet-fed and web press can be incorporated in the same in-line punch. Burgess can also provide a combination of in-line register punch and auto plate stacking.

In-Line punching for Sheet-fed and Web Press Integration
Some CTP imaging and printing applications require in-line automation for multiple sheet-fed and web press and plate applications. Burgess' modular design allows for punching in a separate module or inside the plate bender. Many applications warrant a separate punching module: odd plate sizes, adding additional presses in the near future, integrating web and sheet-fed applications, multiple press and plate sizes and economics.
