Polywest SoftcoatRead More
SOFTCOAT is a seamless, compressible surface especially suited to thin plate technology, its high level of compressibility reduces the deformation of the plate during printing.
It offers the optimal sleeve surface when printing difficult images that include both solids and half tones and will not need to use expensive foamed tapes. SOFTCOAT eliminates all of the problems caused by butt join and spirals that sometimes appear during printing when using wound surfaces do not crop up.
Polywest Carbon Fibre Adapter for Hydraulic ClampingRead More
The Carbon Fibre Adapter for hydraulic clamping is designed for use on Fischer&Krecke®/F&K® CI-Flexoprinting machines type FP 16-S und 20 SIX®. The special design of the hydraulic clamping mandrel requires an even special designed bridge, on the basis of the wellproven hybrid technology with high performance carbon fibre surface.POLYWEST offers the renewal/ reconditioning of wear off or damaged OEM-Clamping Adapters and production of new clamping adapters single ones as an replacement or to complete existing sets
Polywest Carbon Fibre AdapterRead More
Adapters enable the printer to bridge large differences in print circumferences, where the standard printing plate has already reached its limit.With the combination of internal and external diameters between adapter and printing plate every desired print repeat length can be obtained. The technology of the “air cushion principle” is decisive for the simple mounting and demounting in the printing press. An existing compressed air supply provides adequate volume of air with the minimum pressure required. The adapters from POLYWEST are electro statically dischargeable according to Guideline 94/9/EG (formerly ATEX 95) and excel through their low weight, high stability and rigidity characteristics. The robust surface withstands frequent sleeve changes and enables simple sleeve mounting.
POLYWEST adapters have precise concentric run-out properties and are designed to provide a high level of torsion rigidity between plate sleeve and adapter to prevent skewing. A combination of high performance carbon fibres linked with a multi-layer build-up with GRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic) fulfills the requirements of flexo printing. The smooth running characteristics at high printing speeds (up to 600 m/min.) are achieved through the use of high quality CRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic).
