Cut Your Thickness Variation by 50%
Sound too good to be true? It’s not – it can be done using the Paste Saver for automatic active material control
Hello Paste Saver.
The Paste Saver unlocks the true potential of your pasting machines, eliminating low-accuracy manual wrench adjustments. It’s designed as a system upgrade, not a replacement, so it works with virtually any pasting machine. The installation of two Paste Savers in parallel ensures 100% even thickness across your entire plate profile.
The Paste Saver can also be installed on new
pasting lines. We collaborate closely with pasting machine manufacturers like MAC to ensure compatibility with their new machines.
Achieve Unprecedented Thickness Accuracy
Thickness variations will be a thing of the past when you add the Paste Saver to your lines. It’s proven to cut thickness variations by at 50%. That translates directly into less scrap, reduced costs, and improved quality.
Two Setup Options
With one Paste Saver in place, you can tightly control the average
When you add a second Paste Saver in parallel, you can control average thickness AND side-to-side thickness, giving you unprecedented control over your
Leverage our Automatic Thickness Control (ATC) Software
With ATC the Paste Saver receives instructions based on real-time thickness measurements from the Mate Gauge. It gives you the power to achieve fully closed-loop automatic control and optimize quality.
Choose from Several Control Methods
The frequency and size of your active material adjustments
Stop adjustments when the thickness measurement is inside a preset band around the target value.
Dead Band Delay
The thickness measurement has to be outside the dead band for a given number of measurements before an adjustment is made.
Minimum Time Between Adjustments
Introduces a delay to account for the time it takes for plates to travel from the pasting machine to the gauge.
Maximum Adjustment Size
Caps the maximum step size per adjustment.
Adjustable Proportional Gain to allow tuning of the control loop for optimal process performance.
The control basis can be set at the maximum, minimum, or average thickness.
Adjustable Limit Switches
Limit switches are set during installation to prevent the actuator from over-travelling and damaging equipment.
For Travel Limit, Motor Temperature, and Manual Interference Detection.
Optional Manual Adjustments
Built-in 4” wheel. One revolution produces a change of less than 0.0005 in.
Ensures the Paste Saver is not influenced by voids, paste lumps, or paper folds.
Product Change Support
Supports on-the-fly product changes that are fast and accurate, eliminating the slow response of manual change over.
