Equally new is the semi-automatic PS 36, a brother of the above, which is loaded manually. The 8-up flatbed system uses either three-point-Flex register or customised pin register system.
The Optobend, a new semi-automatic bender, is another new device which will be presented at drupa. "It is the first multivariable bender out of our manufacturing that uses optical registration", Strobbe Graphics claim. Up to 42 preinstalled configurations with multiple angle bends can be used.
Drupa will see as well the introduction of the software tool "Gapfinder" by the Belgian company. According to Strobbe, the system can analyse each and every job for gab requirements and take the necessary steps to assure press compatibility without operator intervention. After separation, ripping according to the trap settings, the software processes the file and will add step and repeat assembly, gap repositioning or split gap imaging as well as register, scan marks and plate identification.
