Carrier Sleeves give greater speed and exibility by using pre-mounted plates for quick changeovers. These are very efective for short-runs, repeat jobs and design alterations; sleeves can be taken off press and stored with plates mounted on them. Sleeves that serve solely as carrier rolls have imaged plates mounted to sleeves offline, which are then installed onto cylinders at the print station using compressed air to expand the sleeves for positioning.
- Very eective for short-runs and repeat jobs.
- Provide excellent lay down of solid and metallic inks.
- Greater productivity and exibility.

Basic Sleeve – Non-coated
Durable breglass sleeve for rubber and photopolymer coating applications. Available wall thickness from 0.6mm to 1.6mm.
~ Lightweight yet dimensionally stable ~ Multi-layer resin and breglass
~ Rough outer surface allows excellent bonding ~ Can be combined with various bridge adapters
Solid Sleeve - Thin
A high precision, non-compressible breglass sleeve for conventional plate mounting with adhesive tape. Can be used for label and
exible packaging applications and combined with various bridge adapters. Inner sleeves are made from a combination of
Fibreglass and High Density Foam expertly bonded with Elastic Cellulose-based resins, which allow increased exibility yet maintain
dimensional rigidity. Available wall thickness from 0.6mm to 2.5mm.
~ Lightweight with long lasting durability ~ Easy tape dismounting
~ Notch between breglass layer for extra durability ~ Repeat length up to 600m
~ Stainless steel notch and mounting lines (optional) ~ Unique scratch-resistant gel coat
Solid Sleeve - Thick
A breglass sleeve coated in multi-layer Ultra Light Polyurethane foam for excellent dimensional stability; primarily for use in label
and exible packaging applications. Available wall thickness from 3mm to 100mm.
