Monitoring of Paper Transport in Printing Presses with Rotary Encoders [Movie]

Monitoring of the paper transport in printing presses with rotary encoders

Printing presses transport paper at high speeds through a number of inking stations. In order to gain excellent printing results, the drums transporting the paper need to run synchronously. For this reason, precise monitoring of the rotation speed of each individual drum is critical. All data are transferred to the control system that continuously adjusts the rotation speed in order to achieve a synchronous operation.
