Offset Press Description
The unit-based chassis of the machine is made from 35mm-thick cast iron sideframes, plus a heavy-duty cast iron bed. “This ensures that the press operates at a comfortable 10,000 images per hour (iph). The cylinder layout and helicat-cut drive-guards also add precision to the machine’s performance,” says Hillhouse.
The machine comes with pre-load feeder pile capability, skewed sheet and mechanical or electronic double-sheet detection. It also offers a continuous dampening system, water circulator with chiller, and centralised lubrication.
“Pneumatic control mechanisms for the cylinders and forme rollers decrease the number of moving parts and, therefore, lessen the mechanical stresses involved, thereby extending the press life,” Hillhouse explains. “The inking and dampening systems are probably the most successfully engineered in this category of press, with 16 roller (three forme rollers) computer-derived ink distribution and externally driven oscillation rollers.”
The Hamada is equipped with a plate setting system and a plate punch for accurate plate positioning. With no tools, the operator can ‘hang’ a plate in around 50 seconds, keeping makeready times to a minimum. The blanket washing system also makes job changes relatively fast and easy.
The standalone controller, included on all Hamada A-I models, controls the ink foundation keys, ink foundation sweep and the press registration. One of the optional extras is a CIP3 converter for ink key pre-setting. All the ink settings are stored in the computer for easy recall on repeat jobs or re-runs. There is also a small card feed attachment that can be purchased for substrates 140x90mm in size.
