CHARLOTTE, NC | HarperScientific, div. of Harper Corp., offers EL SleeveWrak, a new line of easy loading protective racks for anilox roller sleeves. Secures anilox roller sleeves in a vertical position to help reduce the possibility of sleeve distortion and damage during off-press storage. New EL (easy loading) models feature an improved top guide and locking mechanism. Upper guide retracts to enable the bottom of the sleeve to be placed on the lower guide first so the rack base can carry the sleeve weight as the sleeve is maneuvered into the storage position. Then the upper guide is lowered, and the sleeve is secured. Accommodates sleeves weighing up to 35 lb and measuring up to 70 in. long. Full-length rubber mat on the base plate is claimed to protect sleeves from chipping during storage. Holds up to 12 sleeves with an optional 18-sleeve capacity, depending on sleeve diameter.
