The Integrated Processing Machine range is Photomec’s premier product  for motion-picture film laboratories. All models in this range benefit from Photomec’s wet-section rack-lift system which, at the press of a button, allows the entire wet-section of the film transport to be automatically raised clear of the processor baths for inspection and maintenance. This completely eliminates the need to strip out leader and manually remove solution laden racks, simplifying cleaning and inspection of components that are usually situated below solution level. With the racks in the elevated position, film leader can be run through the machine, to allow visual inspection of the moving mechanical  parts and of the leader lacing.

To further simplify maintenance, the processor baths and chassis are free of chemical control elements. These are all housed in a separate floor-standing chemical control unit (CCU).  The CCU communicates with the operator’s touch-screen control panel at the processing machine so that bath temperatures can be set and monitored in both locations.

Machine reliability, maintainability and operator safely are enhanced by use of Photomec’s PIMOS management system. This uses an industrial programmable controller, with low voltage signalling and running Photomec firmware, to control and monitor all machine functions. Built in diagnostics is standard while process data-logging and remote diagnostics are also available.

Integrated processors may be supplied for either daylight-loading or darkroom loading.

Photomec’s reputation for quality, innovative design, proven reliability and outstanding customer service has not gone unnoticed. The BKSTS has awarded a Fellowship for Research & Invention in Cinematographic Laboratory Disciplines and a Charles Parkhouse Award for a significant contribution to laboratory practices, particularly for the handling of modern film emulsions. We are always available to offer help & guidance to clients who are new to film handling and we can provide a detailed drawings and specification upon request.
