Printing cylinders

Printing cylinders form the basis of every printing machine and wetherefore manufacture them with the greatest care, in order to guarantee optimum fit and run-out accuracy. Wink printing cylinders are available for all standard flexo and letter press printing presses. Special designs are also possible based on drawings or samples. Positioning marks (axial and radial) can be added to the extremely finely honed cylinder bodies, in order to facilitate the mounting of the printing plates.

Hardened on request

Larger cylinder types are also available as extra-light version with significantly reduced weight, so that a trouble-free installation is guaranteed. As an option, all cylinders can be coated with a hard anodized layer which increases the service life. Of course we also supply the corresponding gears, also available in hardened and ground quality.

Sleeve technology

In narrow web printing, sleeve technology has become very popular in recent years. In many new printing presses, the specially produced sleevescan easily be put onto the machine‘s carrier system with compressed air. As an optimised version to conventional plastic sleeves, we offer you sleeve cylinders made from aluminium, which are convincing with maximum precision and solid surface. Even when frequently changing the sleeves, avery high and constant accuracy is ensured.

It is also possible to change over older machines to sleeve technology, so that continuous printing without a seam is possible in these machines, as well. For this purpose, we provide you with the suitable mounting unit forquick and easy sleeve mounting, so that changeover times are reduced to a minimum.
