Plate mounter

High precision and repeatability


Plate mounter

Designed and manufactured in Mexico by eGraf Equipos

MDG flexo plate mounter for narrow web has a unique design that allows plate mounting with high precision and repeatability.

The video plate mounter has a unique cylinder fastening system "zero backlash" and a unique positioning system "fixed distance" that reduces the moving parts and increases precision and repeatability in plate mounting.

Unique high precision system

• Zero backlash

Unique cylinder fastening system that avoids movement of printing cylinder while mounting the plate. This allows high precision and repeatability in plate mounting.

• Fixed distance

Positioning system that keeps plate always at the same distance from the camera. It is not necessary to adjust lens focus or camera height, increasing precision and repeatability.

• Digital zoom

Allows image zooming in and out without having to manipulate the camera lens. Less moving parts in the video plate mounter turns into higher precision and repeatability.

• High precision rail

Video cameras mounted in a high precision rail.

Fast and easy to use

• Numeric scale

To position video cameras and cylinder holders fast and easy.

• Laser pointers

For a fast pre-positioning of plate in the cylinder (optional), decreasing time for plate mounting.

• HD screen with reference lines

HD Led screen with horizontal and vertical reference lines that help aligning registration marks.

• Sticky back holder

The video plate mounter features as optional a holder to ease sticky back application to the printing cylinder.

• Calibration

Computerized system that allows a fast and easy calibration of the flexo plate mounter.


• Improves printing quality

MDG plate mounter allows obtaining a better printing registration on press, with which is possible to reduce printing overlap lines thickness, obtain higher sharpness in color selection and better definition in inverted and elements printed to registration.

• Use the press full potential

Allows using the press to its full potential, since without an adequate plate mounting, it is impossible to obtain a perfect registration.

• Reduces setbacks

Decreases setbacks in press due to standstills caused by plate misalignment.

• Reduces rejections

Related with printing defects due to misregistration.

• Reduces plate mounting time

• Fast return on investment

MDG video plate mounter is an economic equipment that allows a fast return on investment.
