Printing cylinders are the base piece of flexo printing machines. Also called plate cylinders, they are manufactured with the highest precision following the manufacturer’s specifications for each machine.
They are made of aluminum, with concentricity tolerances of <6 µm (0.006 mm) thanks to a precision finishing process. If required, the cylinders can also be supplied with a hardened anodized coating that makes them more resistant to shock and hits.
Cross and longitudinal positioning lines help ensure that the printing plate is mounted correctly. Large-dimension cylinders are made lightweight, hollow and tubular that make them very easy to use and manipulate.
These high-quality cylinders are recommended by many machinery manufacturers as reference tools for printing.
