In the critical area of pre-placement, manufacturers face increasing pressure to maximise their throughput advantage. In terms of understencil cleaning, this equates to shorter and more efficient cleaning cycles, longer intervals between paper roll changeover and reduced changeover times.
Delivering all this and more, Cyclone from DEK represents a breakthrough in understencil cleaning technology. For today’s manufacturers, Cyclone’s most obvious benefit lies in its ability to deliver a simultaneous time and cost saving. Not only performing on-board understencil cleaning in half the time or less compared with conventional cleaning technologies, Cyclone is also engineered to significantly reduce required paper volume.
Marking a significant improvement in relation to conventional cleaning technologies, Cyclone’s unique bi-directional active cleaning combines with its innovative five-stage cleaning head to both enhance overall cleaning and increase traverse velocity. In addition, the technology’s high-flow vacuum system utilises an active carbon filtration mechanism to generate a single vacuum stroke, thereby eliminating the need for a conventional third pass.
