In tandem operation, machine and operator join forces for continuous, non-stop action: maximum productivity by the system, fitness training for personnel.
The principle is straightforward: media can be loaded onto the printing table from both the front and rear. While printing is underway on one side, the operator loads the other side, and vice versa – so work continues without interruption.
The vacuum table has front and rear sections, both with the usual continuous adjustment. A side benefit is that vacuum to the rear section can be shut off when normal jobs are being printed on the front section only – no masking needed.
This technique brings huge time savings, especially with the
Step & Repeat and Shadow files printing modes.
