The NELA PlateFlow Software receives the print jobs and the plate assignment for the press from an upstream computer system, mostly from the press control system. At the PlateFlow terminal, the user may call up each print job at any time and check whether it is completed. The printing plates for this job are released by the LogiStack plate manager when requested and are transported to a NELA stacking system located either in the pre-press department, or directly at the press.
The vertical plate transport system PlateElevator delivers punched and bent printing plates to the desired building floor – transport of plates by hand is eliminated. – At drupa, NELA will show how plates are transported from the punch/bender or LogiStack system to the upper level of its booth.
NELA offers the fully integrated register control, complemented by Press Lock-Ups which provide correct register for web-width reductions and press modifications.
The NELA product range is completed by sortation stackers for offset plates and Magnetic Cylinders for label and flexographic printing, both of which are also on display at drupa.
