Technical Infos

The grid sheet to be used with the RSP System is fixed to the base plate on the printing press. Previously, a three-part system was used on the front and rear edge of the base plate.

That system has now been replaced by a two-part locking hinge. The bolts needed for fastening the yellow locking bar are no longer required at all, as the new system operates by means of a hinge developed by us specifically for this purpose.

The previous black bolts on the base plate have been replaced by locking hooks, the previous grid sheet bar fastening has been replaced by a newly-designed flat head bolt, and the fixing bar segment has been replaced by the hinge counterpart.

This enables better utilisation of the limited space available on the printing press and reduces the height of the base plate by 30 % in this area, providing significant handling improvement and therefore better ease of use.

The major innovation is the facility to also fix a flexible die directly onto the locking hinge, in addition to the RSP grid sheet.

The RSP direct fit flexible die guarantees best reproducibility of shapes with a maximum level of accuracy.

It is not possible to use RSP in factories equipped with machines using a Teflon or silicone coating on the impression cylinder. In case of replacement by the respective uncoated alternative of the machine manufacturer use is possible.

HEIDELBERG PerfectJackets

Use of our RSP on machines equipped with HEIDELBERG PerfectJackets on the impression cylinder is not possible as our protective impression cylinder jackets do not stick on that surface.

HEIDELBERG Mark3 jackets

But RSP can be used if the Perfect Jackets are replaced by HEIDELBERG Mark 3 jackets. These HEIDELBERG Mark 3 jackets are available for all presses with perfecting unit.

RSP with manroland sheetfed offset printing machines with perfector

On machines equipped with OptiPrint Jackets on the impression cylinder use of RSP in the units equipped with these jackets is not possible as our protective impression cylinder jackets do not stick on that surface.

Customer Testimonials

The diecutting results that we achieved with the new RSP Inline Finishing for AutoPlateCoating were excellent

Daneels Media GroupCompany: Daneels Media Group
Created by: Patrick Verelst, Production Manager

The Daneels Media Group has been successful with inline finishing for many years. Our new XL 106 and the new semi-automatic coating plate changer, the AutoPlate Coating developed by HEIDELBERG, presented us with a new challenge, which we have mastered successfully together with CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH.

Already in advance CITO had developed an inline finishing solution for this new coating unit working in cooperation with Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. The CITO application technicians trained our production team and equipped them practical know-how in the use of the RSP Inline Finishing System 2.0.

We are very impressed by the easy handling and speed of the new system in combination with the coating plate changer. A good decision and the right step for making our production fit for the future. The diecutting results that we achieved with the new RSP Inline Finishing for AutoPlateCoating were excellent.

RSP System 2.0 – Getting the most out of our Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106!

RSP System 2.0 – Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106 WEISS-Druck GmbH & Co. KG

Company: WEISS-Druck GmbH & Co. KG
Created by: Guido Jansen, Printing Department Manager,

When we heard that the RSP System 2.0 was now available for the coater of the Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106, we ordered the system immediately.

Having the RSP System 2.0 in the coater has made us much quicker and more flexible. It allows us to easily switch between a coating and perforating job. We were able to convert the coater in just a few steps.

In addition to flexibility and speed, the top quality of perforation, it provides at such a high volume and machine speed, also impressed us. RSP helps us to produce absolutely economically. That means we can offer our customers optimal service: excellent quality, and the shortest possible delivery times.
