Bounce reduction for top printing speeds with superior dimensional stability

Product overview

  • These products provide superior dimensional stability, because the sleeve construction includes an additional glassfibre barrier layer to prevent any growth.
  • These products are an advantage for the press operator by being easier to handle. This comes from reduced weight and easier mounting properties.
  • New easy-mount technology was developed for these products using advanced materials and state-of-the-art sleeve construction to make mounting easier for the press operator
  • These products are ideal for high-speed applications because the construction and materials of these sleeves provide bounce reduction properties.
  • Available with rotec® Ω Technology that provides complete conductivity from the base sleeve through to the surface.

Benefits

  • Weight optimized with up to 25% reduced weight compared to rotec® Blue Light Sleeve
  • Newly developed easy-mount technology
  • Specialized sleeve construction for bounce reduction and faster press speeds
  • Superior dimensional stability for long-lasting, consistent register accuracy
