DEK All Purpose Clamping (APC)

The All Purpose Clamping (APC) system combines the benefits of all clamping methods for maximum flexibility. Program driven, you can lock boards of all types in place for the printing process.

APC features three modes:

  • Over-the-top clamping: Classic top-down clamping
  • Over the Top Snugger (OTS): Lateral (side) clamping after leveling the board with over-the-top clamping. After clamping the blade is being retracted to allow a perfect print to the edge of the board.
  • Combined lateral and top clamping: The clamping bar stays on the board for double the positional security.
