What this really means is:
- Print to print (color to color) is ± .010”. This means that your LED and LCD windows line up perfectly on every overlay.
- Print to cut (colors registered to cutting die) is ± .010”.
- Cutting dimensions ± .010”.
So how does MSI hold these tight tolerances on your overlays or nameplates?
Screen printed parts are printed on a six color carousel screen printing press that can print up to six colors in one pass and is designed to hold ± .010“ tolerances on color registration.
Digital printing holds perfect color registration making even the most demanding graphics look fantastic. No matter the printing method MSI’s artist will add registration marks for the cutting presses.
At the cutting stage we can ensure ± .010” tolerances print to cut because the presses use cameras to register the parts.
These pictures show our Preco automated die cutting line using the camera to register the printed mark at speeds up to 2000 impressions per hour.
These pictures show our Zund digital blade cutter cutting prototypes using a camera to register the printed marks. The blades eliminate the charring you get from lasers.
Automatic camera registration means 100% consistency in each order. There is no manual registration.
