Flint's plate mounting sleeve with weight savings up to 40% is now available
New lightweight sleeve from Flint

Flint Group officially launches its new rotec Lightweight Sleeve for conventional plate mounting with adhesive tapes. Offering weight savings up to 40% compared to standard sleeves on the market, this new generation of hard-coated sleeves meets a huge range of customers’ requirements in the mid to wide web and pre-print sector. Maximum weight limits for components handled in the pressroom, shorter and easier press setups, or even missing adapter configurations can easily be managed in the future.

Further to the weight savings, the rotec Lightweight Sleeve offers a new feature: The entire sleeve edge is sealed with an aluminum plate. This protects the sleeve from exposure of cleaning liquids, inks or solvents and prevents from unnatural diameter growth of the sleeve.

The rotec Lightweight Sleeve is available with a wall thickness starting at 19 mm and face lengths up to 2835 mm.
