The Fully Automatic Mounting Machine (FAMM) is AV Flexologic’s state of the art flexoplate mounting equipment. This machine is able to automatically mount plates onto sleeves or cylinders using patented image recognition technology with a precision down to 5 microns. For more than 10 years the FAMM has dramatically changed pre-press departments all over the world.

The Fully Automatic Mounting Machine is suitable for every flexible packaging printer and is developed for our customers who demand the highest standards in mounting speed, repeatability, consistency and accuracy.

1 Fully Automatic

The flexo plates are positioned fully automatically with the best possible accuracy of 2 microns using a robotic manipulator and the Image Recognition system


2 Conveyor belt

New split conveyor belt with an option to identify the plate from the bottom by reading QR codes. The conveyor backlight and laser line allows plates to be aligned easier.

3 Robotic manipulator

The manipulator picks-up the flexo plate and transfers it on the exact position for mounting. The operator only needs to load the plates on the conveyor belt.


4 Two automatic pressure rollers (patent pending)

The top pressure roller mounts half of the plate, then the mandrel lowers down so that the second pressure roller can mount the rest of the plate. During this time, the pick-up unit has already placed the next plate for mounting.

5 Automatic linear motors (patent pending)

State of the art automatic linear motors that enable fast plate transfer and positioning. The quality check is now 3 times faster.


6 Automatic mandrel rotation

The mandrel makes synchronous movements and rotates automatically, providing operator free mounting. After mounting, the mandrel unlocks automatically.
