Product Information

Pioneering automation

The MetalStar 3 stands out with an exceptional level of automation, and is thus ideally prepared for the modern trend of ever shorter runs. Automated parallel makeready processes enable the operator to realise the full productivity potential of the MetalStar 3. Press operation is intuitive thanks to the new operating concept implemented on the ErgoTronic console, and all relevant press parameters are never more than a glance away.
For long runs, too, the MetalStar 3 is a perfect means of production. With outputs up to 9,000 sheets per hour, it is the fastest metal decorating press in the world.

Automated, simultaneous make-ready processes

As many make-ready processes as possible are already integrated into an extensively automated job changeover process. DriveTronic SPC enables the plates to be changed parallel to blanket washing. With CleanTronic Synchro, the blanket and impression cylinder can be washed simultaneously, or else both washing beams can be used to wash the blanket. In each case, the time spent on washing processes is reduced dramatically.
The desired extent of automation is specified at the ErgoTronic console. The operator selects the make-ready processes to be performed, and the MetalStar executes the selected functions in optimised order.

Cutting edge technology from feeder to stacker

Irrespective of the substrates you print, you will be captivated by the MetalStar 3.

Gentle sheet handling at the feeder, automatic synchronisation of the complete printing line, preset capabilities – everything has been taken into account. The disengaging of unused inking units reduces roller wear, optimised processes accelerate makeready, and the ErgoTronic console with wallscreen leaves no wish unanswered for the operator.

Parallel blanket and roller washing with the multi-function CleanTronic washing systems, together with the fastest plate changing systems in the world, guarantees the shortest possible makeready times and thus maximum productivity.

With LogoTronic Professional, the enhanced performance can be made visible with a click of the mouse – through the automatic acquisition of all key performance indicators (KPI)
