Plate Bender is the device which printers use to assist with curving Aluminum printing plates to fit and roll round the printing drum. In this case, we were required to design a plate bender to assist with curving and creasing Polyester plate. Polyester plates need to have heat on the crease area in order for the material to hold on the crease and not bent back. We design this unit to have a monitored heating area to slide and heat the plat in the right moment and giving it the right crease.
