Heath Turret MicroChek Press
 
 
     
 


HEATH MICROCHEK PRESS

 
The Heath sheet-fed Microchek Press is a microprocessor controlled press designed exclusively for producing MICR encoded checks and documents. It will successfully produce pocket checks, laser checks, pegboard checks, three-to-a-page checks, duplicate checks, internal bank documents and payment coupons.
 
 
With the use of the patented Heath turret design and the unique quick-change plate system, down time between jobs is reduced to under 15 seconds. When running pocket checks 15 up on the Microchek Press, experienced operators are capable of producing in excess of 1,400 orders in an eight hour shift. The production of laser checks on the Microchek Press will approach 150 orders per shift when running 2 up in quantities of 500.
   



SPECIFICATIONS:

INKING SYSTEM
The traditional ink fountain is replaced by a two-roller system that continuously mills the ink. Simple ink adjustments are made electronically from the micro-processor control pad. Each form roller has its own oscillator roller to ensure a uniform flow of ink. Once adjusted, this unique setup requires little or no operator intervention.

COMMON IMPRESSION CYLINDER
The common impression cylinder holds the press sheet with the same set of grippers for offset printing and numbering, ensuring positive registration between offset printing, gothic numbering and MICR encoding.

PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLS
The microprocessor control system operates the press through a selected sequence. The system will automatically control numbering, non-numbering and indexing cycles.

CHECK DISCRIMINATOR
A photoelectric check/deposit slip discriminator reads a code in the margin of each sheet to identify checks. The numbering unit automatically lifts off impression while the press prints deposit slips.

QUICK-CHANGE PLATE SYSTEM
The press can be programmed to automatically stop at the end of a run for a plate change. This function includes a stop-at-home feature that causes the plate cylinder to stop in the exact location required to hang the next plate. This feature, coupled with the unique foot operated plate clamp allows the operator to mount and position a plate in seconds.
