Printing rollers

Elastomer rollers coverings – outstanding performance, a versatile product range

Industrial production would be virtually inconceivable without rollers and cylinders. Graphic rollers are found in every printing process: offset (sheetfed and web), rotogravure, flexography.

In close co-operation with systems manufacturers and operators, we develop and produce the right covering material and the optimi­sed roller for each different production process.

We produce machine components that meet highest standards and withstand extreme stress and strain in continuous three-shift operation. The covering material is a flexible rubber or plastic compound. Geometry, surface quality and compounding combine to produce the ideal covering. For development and design, we provide our customers a roller dimensioning program, nip-width calculation and core configuration.
