For effortless vacuum control
Tip Switch Vacuum
Setting the print bed vacuum is child's play. Using the Tip Switch vacuum, each of the 256 vacuum segments is switched on and off in no time at all with just the touch of a finger, no additional masking required.
Run it over the vacuum tip switches across the print bed width and open all of the 256 vacuum channels in just a few seconds. Once the material is loaded, do the same to shut off the segments below the uncovered surfaces:
With series of boards, between individual media.
With dual rolls, also in the gap between them.
When printing in tandem, in the front zone as well as in the rear.
Masking and taping? That's unnecessary as you can switch the vacuum on or off in very small segments to avoid leaks. This allows the vacuum to develop its full force exactly where needed and securely hold down the substrate. To help you keep track, each switch has a green and red indicator to show its open or closed status.
The vacuum also keeps notoriously unruly media in check.
Vacuum intensity is freely adjustable via the output software. Moreover, the vacuum automatically reduces once there is sufficient underpressure or while roll material is being advanced. The results: a quiet working environment, minimum power consumption (ISO-certified) and precision feeding.
Tip Switch vacuum is the subject of a patent application.
