HÖCHBERG, GERMANY | Flint Group Flexographic Products introduces rotec Atlas Adapters with high-quality carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) structure combined with a polyurethane (PU) coating (with a hardness of 75 Shore D). Suitable for sleeve mounting on CIC flexo presses operating at speeds in excess of 1,000 mpm. Vibration dampening system is said to optimize print quality and production speeds by preventing vibration stripes that result when the printing form is not in continuous contact with the impression cylinder or anilox roll which causes the edges of the relief to produce resonance shocks in the print and ink unit. CFRP is said to exhibit high strength and stiffness to permit extreme loads with very low deflection; low tendency to material fatigue and low specific weight. Available with wall thicknesses of up to 100 mm and nearly all lengths. Features its own air conduction system that can be adapted to the users' requirements. PU coating resists scrataches and solvents, and surface can be ground off and retreated even when damaged.
