SMITH PPI DAMPENING/BLANKET CLEANING SYSTEMS

Spraymatic G4 SprayMATIC G4/G8 - The Ultimate in Combination Dampening/Blanket Cleaning Controls for Offset Printing Applications.

Dual Solution Pulsed Dampening and Blanket Cleaning is now available for wide range of printing applications, including newspaper printing, Insert and Tabloid newsprint, commercial and book printing and packaging.

SprayMATIC G4 provides the advanced pulse speed and precise spray pattern distribution of dual solutions from one nozzle in the spray dampening bar. Now, both dampening and cleaning are available for little more the price of either application on a stand alone basis. Dual screen controls allow for precise application of both water and blanket wash through the same nozzle using dual fast response solenoid valves, which meter the right ratio of both to the blanket. Blankets are cleaned with impression on, using the web for waste removal. Waste goes out with recyclable paper waste for easy lost cost removal. Blanket cleaning may be programmed for either during a run (Production Wash) or end of the job (Run Down Wash). SprayMATIC offers the latest technology for precise, per pulse, outputs and on board the spray bar electronics, which provides self check diagnostics of every valve at start up and constant monitoring during press runs. Why not get 2 applications dampening and blanket cleaning, for the price of one, one integrated system design? The investment can pay for itself in less than one year!

SprayMATIC G4 controls provide comprehensive water distribution with infinite adjustments of each spray nozzle. Precision solenoid valves are adjustable in .50 millisecond increments. Pulses per minute may be adjusted from 0 to 3,500! Independent Non Linear curves provide for continuous quality printing by allowing for set point differentials to increase or decrease water output as the press accelerates or decelerates. Values are individually stored and quickly recalled for presets of previous jobs. Automatic, adjustable flood time controls allow for very fast start ups with minimum waste copies!

SprayMATIC G4 Controls include self-check diagnostics. Each time the system is turned on, every solenoid valve is automatically pulsed to check operation. Any malfunction is immediately displayed as an error, so the bar can be serviced. In addition, if any bar is missing from the press, an error message is displayed with the location noted.

SprayMATIC G4 Touch Screen provides for complete computer control of an entire dampening system for one press or multiple press lines. The PLC based operation allows for up to 100 job file security and a library of stored jobs for quick reference and presets.

Windows® based, SprayMATIC G4 Controls are the fastest, easiest to use controls available for spray dampening. Adjustments, small or wide range, can be made quickly and conveniently. Press set ups are easily changed for different press configurations. Bar selections are made by pointing to the unit bar to be changed. Non linear curves have on-screen display to view the entire ramp speed range and quickly change it. Alpha numeric job file directories allow for quick reference and job recall. Color coded keys and press units allow the operator to easily set up and adjust jobs.
