Mühlbauer’s fully automatic sheet collating system ASC 2900 is designed for the collating and welding sheets for the lamination process. Using ultrasonic welding units from the bottom, the ASC 2900 is highly flexible. The different core layers are automatically inserted and aligned to edge before welding the complete set. Configurations of up to three core layers and two overlays from reel are possible. The alignment of the overlay to the edge or the magstripe is also possible. The fully collated and welded set is then transferred to the output stacker.
