Dynamic Separation Platform (DSP) 

Automation for Variable Print Data


The DSP is compatible with all palamides deliveries of the new generation pro!

Maximum Efficiency with Variable Print Data

The Dynamic Separation Platform (DSP) is a toolbox that enables all palamides deliveries of the new generation pro to process variably printed data, thus making them Industry 4.0-capable. Individual solutions for a wide range of demands are made possible from an extensive component portfolio. The solutions consist of various delivery types, mechanical and electronic modules, and software packages.

Digital printing and hybrid marketing allow and require print products to be individualized. Depending on the demand, a palamides delivery equipped with DSP is capable of separating, sorting, completing. It interacts with the user's production control system, providing calculation results, protocols and information that are used for further processes. In turn, it accepts commands and information from the production control system and identifies, marks, or ejects products or product stacks. The DSP is used on almost all production machines, has a modular design and networks digital print production with all downstream processes.

With the DSP, palamides already offers a wide range of solutions for rejecting, labeling and completing variable printed productions.

DSP manages to efficiently eliminate the black hole that is created behind many production machines. By making maximum use of existing information, automating previously manual processes and permanent quality assurance, production processes can be optimized both actively and passively.

  • DSP in conjunction with a palamides delivery precisely stacks and separates variably printed products.
  • DSP checks and completes, ejects faulty or incomplete stacks, marks and labels.
  • DSP transmits all read information and the achieved calculation results to the customer's IT.
  • Standardized DSP components in connection with all current palamides deliveries open up enormous possibilities.
  • palamides delivery of the generation pro
  • personalized or customized print products
The requirements are manageable, but the possibilities are enormous: Thanks to its modular design, the DSP can cope with a wide variety of requirements.
Experience shows that especially in the processing of personalized productions, the requirements are very different. In order to meet the individual requirements of the customer on the one hand, but on the other hand to use standards that are as predictable as possible, the respective project is analyzed by experienced teams together with the customer. The solution outlined in this process accesses standard components from the DSP toolbox, but also develops individualized solutions if required.
The DSP solves the set demands in terms of product tracking and precise separation via three mechanisms that offer different configurations:
1. The Signal Transmission
In order to trigger the stack separation, an initial signal is required. In the smallest configuration (no evaluation and control options), a 24VDC signal is sufficient. However, if additional checks shall be performed or if further processes (check stack for completeness, etc.) shall be triggered based on the information, it is necessary to work with a barcode that contains the required information about the product and the stack. The barcode does not have to be visible during the entire process.
2. The Stack Separation 
Variable processing of print products requires very precise separation of the product stacks. Depending on the speed, the separation device only has a few milliseconds to separate at exactly the right point. For this reason, the "gap maximization" module is available for high-speed production at speeds of 8,000 ex/h and above. For slower speeds, the normal single-sheet delivery of the machine is usually sufficient. 
3. The Processing of Information 
Often, products not only have to be spatially separated from each other, but also have to be inspected, evaluated or controlled. By using information contained in a barcode, numerous possibilities arise: With the help of the DSP, the delivery can ensure completeness within a stack by either signaling incomplete stacks, rejecting them with the necessary additional module, or (in the case of sequential production) even completing them. Information can also be forwarded to external devices.
