SysTec's Virtual Image is a valuable software solution that is provided with EVERY mounter from SysTec, and it is the core of our machines.
This solution is very unique in that it allows the user to record the position AND a visual image of every mounted plate.
You not only have an XY position of the mounted plate but also a "picture" of the plate in that position.
For example, let's say you have to remount one plate in an 8 color job. Previously, you would take more time to manually mount the plate and hope to be as close as possible to the original...and hope to have limited waste due to re-registration efforts.
Now, Virtual Image allows you to bring up an image of the originally mounted plate and with adjustable translucency, superimpose the new plate being mounted over the old plate.
With recorded positions and this virtual image assistant, you can now quickly confirm the new plate is in the same position as the original, secure the plate and get back to the press with faster start-up and with less waste.
Awesome tool dude!
