Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR PRECISELY DRILLING ALIGNMENT PIN REGISTER HOLES IN PRE-MARKED FLEXIBLE PRINTING PLATES
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE PERCER AVEC PRECISION DES TROUS DE PLOTS DE REPERAGE D'ALIGNEMENT DANS DES PLAQUES D'IMPRESSION SOUPLES PREMARQUEES
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (1) and method for aligning flexible printing plates (251), and for accurately drilling pin register holes (191) therein, includes a three way adjustable table top assembly (23) which can be selectively adjusted in X and Y directions, and rotated about an axis. A pneumatic clamp (253) is positioned on the table top assembly (23) for clamping a pre-marked flexible printing plate (251) to be drilled in place thereon. A movable stereomicroscope viewer (232) is slidable above the table top assembly (23) to view the flexible plate (251) for position adjustment via the adjustable table top assembly (23). A drill assembly (91) is positionable over each location at which a pin register hole (191) is to be drilled. The drill assembly (91) includes a movable hollow core drill bit (75) surrounding a stationary rod (181). Once the flexible plate (251) is aligned via the viewer (232), the drill assembly (91) is sequentially positioned above the flexible plate (251) at each point to be drilled with a pin register hole (191).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil (1) et un procédé permettant d'aligner des plaques d'impression (251) souples et de percer avec précision, dans ladite plaque, des trous (191) de plots d'alignement. Ledit appareil comprend un ensemble table (23) à trois axes de réglage, c'est-à-dire pouvant être réglé, de façon sélective, dans le sens X et dans le sens Y, et soumis à une rotation autour d'un axe. Un dispositif de serrage (253) placé sur l'ensemble table (23) permet de serrer sur celui-ci une plaque d'impression (251) souple, pré-marquée, à percer. Un stéréomicroscope (232) mobile peut coulisser au-dessus de l'ensemble table (23), permettant ainsi de regarder la plaque d'impression (251) souple et d'en régler la position au moyen dudit ensemble table (23) réglable. Un ensemble de perçage (91) peut être positionné à chaque emplacement où un trou de plot de repérage (191) doit être percé. Cet ensemble de perçage (91) comprend un foret aléseur (75) creux, mobile, qui entoure une tige fixe (181). Après alignement de la plaque d'impression (251) souple au moyen du stéréomicroscope (232), l'ensemble de perçage (91) est placé successivement au dessus de chaque point de la plaque d'impression (251) souple où doit être percé un trou (191) destiné à un plot de repérage.
