Automated Matrix Waste Removal Systems Permit On-the-Fly Job Changes Without Stopping the Presses

The latest automated matrix waste removal systems from converting equipment manufacturer Lundberg Tech, Newark, Del. permit on-the-fly changes to the colors, coatings, layout, and other print specifications without stopping the press to manage roll unwinding and matrix waste collection.

Designed for compatibility with the latest short run digital finishing equipment, the automated Lundberg Tech systems automatically capture waste and dust at the press from labels, shrink sleeves, foils, flexible packaging, and other materials, then cut the waste into confetti and collect it in a compactor or bulk bag for recycling or disposal. Startup waste is reduced, job setup moves faster, and production speed and efficiency are improved while downtime lost for manual matrix waste handling is eliminated.

Achieving high draw-off speeds, the automated, pneumatic conveying systems are reportedly engineered to precisely match the high production rates of today's digital equipment to allow label manufacturers, converters, printers, and others to maximize the capabilities of their new printing machinery and promote a high ROI. The environmentally-friendly waste removal systems are custom-engineered for each finishing line at the company's headquarters and installed with a quality guarantee.

Technical service and spare parts are offered via the company's North American headquarters in Newark, Del.
