MKW RAPID UT-SC

Our Smart Collator (SC) is based on our RAPID model, and represents an intelligent step forward for collating machines. Computer-controlled collating from within a database means individually configured print runs containing different sets can be packaged in a single work step, delivering high levels of flexibility.

The Smart Collator can handle media from 10 x 14cm to 100 x 70cm, as well as special and miniature formats.

QR code scanning and tracking ensures that every individual set runs smoothly, and you can view the whole process via the control panel. All in all, this system provides a winning combination of outstanding efficiency and 100% reliability.

Labelling and bagging are done in-line using a built-in label printer and a linked film packaging machine. 

These features make our Smart Collator particularly sought-after in the retail sector, because they allow retailers to deliver individually packaged advertising materials to Points of Purchase (PoP) / Points of Sale (PoS).

Optional extras:

  • DUPLEX function
  • Pre-stacking system

  • IP camera systems
  • Online VPN diagnostics and 24 hours remote assistance

MKW GIANT UT

The MKW GIANT was conceived as a machine for packaging large-format sheets and mixing packaging or cardboard. We have drawn on our decades of experience and expertise to turn this ground-breaking concept into a reality, and proud owners praise the GIANT’s outstanding quality and reliability.

This machine collates large-scale formats from 100 x 70cm to 145 x 106cm, and it can handle paper from 80g/m² to 1000g/m².

The GIANT can be loaded using pallets up to 140cm high and weighing up to two and-a-half tonnes.

Material is processed from pallet to pallet, making this the perfect half-way house between a printer and a punch press.

MKW MINI-GIANT UT

The MINI GIANT may be the “baby” version of the GIANT, but when it comes to quality and reliability, it gives nothing away to its big brother.

It's ideal for stationery, colour sample cards, cardboard and plastic films.

The MINI GIANT can work with material measuring 100 x 70cm or 115 x 86cm as standard.

With this range of machines, users can feed large-format system palettes into the collating machine and process them in a single step. This system can also process jobs from palette to palette, which can then be stacked using the lifter in the pre-stacking system and simply rolled into the stations by hand. It all adds up to a major reduction in set-up times.

A palette delivery system is also available, which can be off-set to separate sets as required.

Tandem function

The collating machines can be operated in tandem mode as standard. Double loading using two stations at once increases productivity and almost doubles overall output. This feature is available as standard on most MKW collators.

MKW-RAPID-BARCODE-SCANNER

Quality assurance

Missing sheet and double-sheet detectors are fitted to every station to find any defective sheets. MKW detection systems provide the highest levels of quality assurance, thanks to the following technology:

  • MKW DUAL IR-US (infra-red and ultrasound sensor)
    • Detects defective and double sheets in all paper products, as well as in plastic films
  • QR or barcode scanners
    • Used to register every single individual sheet
    • The QR code data can also be checked against a database

DUPLEX function
