Bridge Adapters – BA

Using a mandrel air system for mounting and unmounting sleeves, our adapters have a steel ring with incorporated notch.

Our adapters have a further air inlet to ease sleeve mounting and they can be combined with various types of sleeves.

Available in polyurethane or with a conductive external layer. 

The sleeve thickness needed is significantly reduced. This is a cost saving benefit for your production runs.

The number of air inlets along the bridge surface range from 1 to 3 holes of Ø 2mm.

All adapters are durable, scratch and solvent resistant when handled correctly.

Our Other Solutions

Water Washable Plates

Washing out of flexo printing plates is increasingly being done with water as a base. The quality is now completely comparable with solvent-based plates. Water washable plates have the additional advantage of being environmentally friendly. That is why the transfer to water washable printing plates, which are also extremely suitable for UV inks, is essential.

Plate Mounting Tape

Mounting tape attaches the printing plate onto the sleeves or cylinders. It is highly resilient and it determines the quality of the print output depending on the chosen hardness in combination with the composition of the cylinder or sleeve.
