  • One stop for reel change instead of 3-4 pallet changes
  • Significantly reduced make-ready and set-up times
  • High cutting tolerance allows direct finishing in postpress without vibrating or additional cutting
  • Increased printing speed by +50% due to optimized sheeting and feeding
  • Lower cost for paper from reel
  • Fewer paper jams and stops due to paper and sheet quality
  • Reduction of waste due to reel feeding
  • Special printing materials and substrates can be processed
  • Short runs and high amount of job changeovers in less time

Cutting sheets from reel

The Eagle 165 Inline Pre-Press Sheeter combines the lower cost of web offset with the flexibility of sheet-fed offset. The printing stock is unwound from the reel, cut to the required size in the sheeter, and then shingled and fed individually to the press. 

Wide range of material

The Eagle 165 offers the perfect combination with any sheet fed press in a print size range from 6 to 7b (up to a size of 1240 mm to 1650 mm) and opens a wider range of printing materials and substrates such as film, foils, coated and metallized materials or thinnest paper qualities.

Higher flexibility, greater performance and reduced costs

This Inline Pre-Press Sheeter provides a cost saving based on lower costs of reels compared to sheets, reduced handling, lower waste and a higher running speed that can add up to 15% or more. These benefits are increased when lightweight or sensitive substrates are run. 

Make-ready times are short with setup menus stored via the HMI. When moving from reel-mode to sheet-mode the delivery section indexes to one side proving access to load pallets. A highly respected printer reports 50% more production from their press equipped with an Eagle Inline Sheeter compared to an identical sister press with a traditional sheet feeder. The Eagle Inline Pre-Press Sheeter can be installed with any existing large format press in the field or supplied with a new press purchase.

Four components 

  • Unwinder with re-generative motor braking system
  • Dancer roller for fast stop and start
  • Cross cutter
  • Feed conveyor with underlapping
