Sond's Hand Fed Platens

hand fed platensABOUT PLATEN
The Platen is one of the popular creations, designed for Die Cutting, Scoring & Creasing of various articles like Paper, Linoleum, Cardboard, Corrugated Board, Wonder Board, Fiber Board, Cork, Leather, Plastic, Vinyl, PVC Material etc. The Platen is patronized for more than one reason. It is compact in size, and hence, requires minimum floor space. It is designed to take minimum 'MAKE-READY' time. It provides the most optimum hourly production.
It is more presentable than anyof the mee-too's on offer.

EVEREST- Handfed Platen Press
EVEREST is the name & style, under which, all products are designed and made in the house of SOND, leave premises for domestic utility or use across the seven seas. Under the brand name of 'EVEREST' SOND has been manufacturing sturdy machines since 1965 for superb precision, unsurpassed reliability & virility in destructible quality.

THE BODY STRUCTURE
The main Body of the Platen is quite sturdy, ensuring smooth operations under trying condition. The Main frame, as well as the Platen are made of special highly tensile Cast Iron and can, therefore resist even the slights of deformation under the heaviest of strains. In fact, for customers, that have 'Half-Cut' Job, it is necessary the maximum machine rigidity. EVEREST boy structure is carefully designed to withstand the heaviest loads to provide unsurpassed cutting precision and many years of reliable service. Enough 'Goose Necks'/Thick Support Bars are provided inside of the Platen, (Moving and Fixed) in order to give minimum deflection under heaviest load. Further, each Platen (Moving and Fixed) is machined and finished to obtain perfectly level surfaces.
A lot of attention has been given for 'Connecting Arms'. High tensile steel is used and their dimensions are carefully calculated to bear the maximum material stress.

THE WORKING
The main Gears Shaft and Connecting Arms are mounted on Phosphorus Bronze Bushes. Ball/Roller Bearing Mounted Crank Shaft drives the Platen through a Pair of high-speed Double Helical Gears (for increased strength) and two Pairs of reduction Spiral Gears being lubricated by Grease/Oil.

THE SPECIAL MATERIAL
Our constant strives for better machines & enormous experience gained over the years in the field of quality Die Cutting & Creasing Platens. We at SOND use quality materials suitable for every part of the machine, such as - Shafts, Cam and Roller, Sliding/Guiding Plates for the Moving Platen, Connecting Arms are mounted on Phosphorus Bronze Bushes. The Reduction Gear is made of Hardened Quality Alloy Steel/Cast Nylon.

THE IMPRESSION ADJUSTMENThand fed platens
A lot of attention has been given to the minutest of detail. For example, a quick adjustment of impression is made through two Eccentric Bushes and the degree of adjustment can easily be noted on a Calibrated Scale. The device allows an infinite impression control down to a few microns. This feature considerably EXTENDS DIE LIFE, subtantially reduces Make-Ready time and simplifies 'Kiss Cuts'. Operators can adjust cutting pressure with unprecedented precision. An impression Counter keeps an accurate count of the impressions made by the Machine.
Moving platen is precisely hand finished in order to achieve the perfect crown profile ( bombage) for compensation of different pressures on the middle and sides of the Diecutting Plate. An essential requirement for precision diecutting.

MULTIPLE DWELL
There are other special devices like the Dwell Timing Device, which can be set to give a variable period from a least count of 0.5 second to 10 second. During the period, the moving Block remains stationary in the open position before automatically resuming motion at the end of the set dwell period. The feature is particularly useful when feeding requires a fine register or when large or difficult Sheets are being fed, which would otherwise have to be run using the Single Impression procedure. This Device can provide more than double the output when compared with single impression working. It is also of great assistance in training of Operators.

THE SAFETY FACTOR
Laser Safety System: State-of-the-art system for preventing accidents by significantly shortening safety-reaction times; enormous savings in space by eliminating conventional Safety Mats.
All moving parts of 'EVEREST' Machines are protected by internationally desirable and approved Safey Guards. In addition, a specially designed Guard protects the Operator from the Moving Block. Should any object comes between the Moving Block and the Guard, a slight backward movement of the Guard will occur stopping Moving Block immediatly, switching-off the starting mechanism. until and unless the Guard is relocated, the Machine remains at a standstill and unaffected by any attempt to actuate it through the starting mechanism. The sensitive 'Trip Bar' and 'Knee guard' come standard in EVEREST. These Safety Devices assure that users are kept out of harms' way.

CE Mark European Standards Confirmity
ceQuality'CE' marking is legally required (mandatory) for products intended for sale or placed into service in Europe. 'CE' marking covers and estimated 75% of all products sold today in Europe. The requirement of CE marking apply to all manufacturers , whether located within or ourside of Europe . In order to be compliant with the 'CE' Marking requirements, a manufacturer must ensure that his products meet all applicable directives.

Sond Engineering Works is proud to annouce that all "EVEREST" brand Die-Cutters confirm to strict standards set by the European Commission for product safety and quality. "EVEREST" is the only Non-European Die-Cutter brand that comes with a 'CE' mark .

This qualification has made our brand higly acceptable in the European markets and beyond.

European CE Marking Certification is set up to...

  1. Harmonized all varying national regulations for consumer and industrial products in European Member States , so that the single market is encouraged.
  2. Bring about cost savings for producers.
  3. Enhances the safety of product.
  4. Enhances the quality of the product.
