Dwell Unit

Sun Automation Group Vacuum Transfer Dwell Unit     Shown is the dwell unit positioned between the last print station and the die cut unit.    Learn more about Sun Automation’s Dwell Unit in their brochure.


The Vacuum Transfer Dwell Unit usually fits between the last print unit and the die cut unit to ensure printing is completed before die cutting begins.  It also provides additional ink drying time and space for drying units.

The fundamental advantage of a dwell unit is to ensure two functions are not engaged with a single corrugated sheet at one time.

  • Improve print quality
  • Improve production speed
  • Eliminate print smearing that occurs in the die cutter by increasing the dwell time and ensuring the sheet is free from the last print plate nip

PrintPrep® Sheet Cleaner

 Sun Automation Group PrintPrep® In-Line Sheet Cleaner    Learn more about Sun Automation’s PrintPrep Sheet Cleaner in their brochure.


Sun’s PrintPrep® unit is an in-line sheet cleaner that can be adapted to existing finishing equipment.  The unit cleans sheets by utilizing a de-ionizing static bar to neutralize the electrical charge that binds dust particles to the liner and a rotating non-static brush to sweep them away.  PrintPrep is equipped withSunTrac® vacuum transfer system to ensure accurate sheet transfer.

Machine downtime for plate cleaning is dramatically reduced because dust is not transferred from the substrate to the printing plates. 

An optional magnetic bar is available to remove metallic particles from the board that come from sharpening mechanisms to avoid anilox roll damage.

PrintPrep is engineered to be compatible with many OEM machine manufacturers and models.

Feed Table Backstop

Feed Table Backstop - Sun AutomationFeed Table Backstop - Sun Automation  Feed Table Backstop - Sun Automation


The purpose of the Feed Table Backstop is to provide a convenient place for operators to stack sheets from hopper while clearing feeder or pre-feeder jams. This reduces the risk of tripping as well as back and other potential injuries when removing sheets (especially large) from hopper.

Typically, people place a corrugated pile on the ground or to the side as there was no suitable place to set a board aside when working on a machine. The Feed Table Backstop provides a simple, yet effective alternative that saves time and increases convenience.
