Printing cylinders for printing plates are mainly used in flexographic machines, offset and letterpress printing. These high quality tools are recommended by numerous machine manufacturers as reference tools.
Made of rigid aluminum or steel and with a concentricity tolerances of < 6 µm (0.006 mm) achieved from a precision-ground finishing process. If required, the cylinders can also be supplied with a hardened anodized coating to prevent damage.
Axial and radial positioning lines help to ensure that the printing plate is mounted correctly. Cylinders with larger dimensions are manufactured as “lightweight cylinders”.
