There is still room for growth: perfect technology for brilliant printing and an expanded order profile.
The OC 200 is designed for maximum ease of use. The printing plates for all colors can be changed in only 20 minutes maximum, making the OC 200 a very efficient and economical solution for small print runs of less than 1,000 pieces. Rapid print plate change between jobs increases the OC 200 utilization ratio in one and two track operation.
Maximum capacity is up to 15,000 cards per hour. A low wastage rate for proofs and elimination of ink adjustment during production save time and money. Multicolor printing (CMYK plus special colors) and varnishing can be performed in a single pass. The unique short inking unit for waterless offset printing using "zoneless" anilox ink transfer ensures uniform color to give you excellent print quality. You can use special colors (5th and 6th printing units) and partial varnishing in combination with UV-hardening ink and varnish to achieve special visual effects. The dosing cylinder is kept at a constant temperature during varnishing on a large surface to ensure that a flawless coating is applied.
The varnish coating is distributed evenly in the paternoster vertical conveyor, creating an attractive gloss effect and providing good abrasion resistance. Large print runs in non-stop operation The standard loading magazine module and the unloading module can store up to 500 cards per track (depending on card thickness). Optionally , the infeed module can be expanded with a magazine extension that can load up to 1,500 cards per line.
The modular design of the OC 200 offers first time users who choose the basic version with two printing units the unparalleled flexibility to add other features to the system at a later time: primer and varnishing unit, additional printing modules, rotation unit, paternoster conveyor, monitoring conveyor, transport conveyor for L and U configurations and magazine extension. This wide range of options should be enough to satisfy nearly any customer requirements.
Easy to operate: compact safety and performance The printing plates are easy to swap, and this is one of the features that make the OC 200 so flexible and easy to use. The plates are punched and edged in a punch which was developed by KBA-Metronic GmbH to ensure exact registration. The plates are easy to mount, and they can be reused for repeat orders at a later time. KBA-Metronic GmbH offers analogue and digital prepress equipment to produce the plates.
A touchscreen monitor provides a userfriendly way of controlling the full set of OC 200 functions. Integrated cameras, which detect and prevent double feeding and check cavity positioning, enhance production reliability. Automatic fine adjustment in front of each print unit to ensure exact registration accuracy is an unparalleled feature in this market segment.
An optional ServiceRouter enables convenient secure and uncomplicated remote access to the OC 200 via the Internet. In the event of a fault, our Service Team can perform fast and reliable diagnostics and fault clearance in this way. Software updates are also possible at any time without problems. Time and cost intensive service calls are limited to what is necessary.
Costly machine shutdown times are prevented or significantly minimized. By using the ServiceRouter system, you create an advantage as compared with your competitors and benefit in the event of a fault from prompt and thus maintenance and repair with reduced costs.
