Eliminate the difficult to adjust and unreliable hook locks on your Saturn machines with this upgrade from SUN Automation Group.
When conventional locks get dirty from an ink spill, they can cause the sections of the flexo to lock too tightly together. When this happens, it is difficult to unlock the sections, and maintenance will have to force the hooks to unlock. Additionally, The eccentric lock pins can become loose and out of adjustment causing the sections not to be locked tightly enough. Since the pins are on the inboard side of the frame, they have to be adjusted by “feel”.
With wedge locks from SUN Automation Group, no adjustment is required. These locks self-compensate for wear, and machine vibrations only make the locks settle on the wedge and become tighter. The locks cannot jam because of their design. These locks improve registration and increase gear train life.
