With extreme adjustment accuracy, the operator can get the job in the register with only one test sheet, making it an efficient solution to a typically wasteful process.

  • Reduced setup time (about 1 minute) and reduced waste with unregistered boxes and only one test sheet
  • Requires virtually zero maintenance and minimal cleaning for up to ten years or more

    PRODUCTIVITY, SAVINGS, QUALITY

    Say goodbye to long setup times and high maintenance with the SunTrac® Vacuum Transfer System. By providing the optimum board path and delivering a flat sheet throughout the printing process, vacuum transfer eliminates jams, allows significantly faster operating speeds, and improves print quality.

    THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE TRANSFER SYSTEM OF CORRUGATED BOARD

  • Available on bottom or top printing equipment
  • Easily retrofitted on any machine to eliminate pull rolls and pull collars
  • Precise control of sheet travel means that lead and trail trim can be reduced or eliminated
  • – PRINTPREP® SHEET CLEANER

    QUALITY, ACCURACY, EFFICIENCY

    Effectively clean sheets with PrintPrep® in-line sheet cleaner. Adapted to existing finishing equipment, the unit effectively cleans sheets by utilizing a de-ionizing static bar to neutralize the electrical charge that binds the dust particles to the liner and a rotating non-static brush to sweep them away. PrintPrep® is equipped with SunTrac® to ensure accurate sheet transfer.

  • Reduced downtime for print plate cleaning because dust is not transferred from the substrate to the printing plates
  • Improved print quality by avoiding degraded printing caused by dust build-up on the printing plates
  • Engineered to be compatible with many OEM machine manufacturers and models
  • – DWELL UNIT

    SPEED, QUALITY, EFFICIENCY

    Ensure two functions are not engaged with a single corrugated sheet at one time with SUN’s Dwell Unit. The additional space provided by a dwell unit keeps two competing nip points from affecting each other’s activity, as well as provide more drying time and a space for dryers if needed.

  • Improved print quality and production speed
  • Eliminate print smearing by increasing the dwell time and ensuring that the sheet is free from the last print plate nip
  • Provides more drying time and extra space for dryers
  • EVERYTHING CORRUGATED UNDER SUN
