Flexo Print Cylinders Make Presses Hum

NASHUA, NH: Lightweight, precision balanced carbon fiber flexographic print cylinders from NimCor decrease bounce between the print cylinder and impression drum so presses can run at higher critical speeds. The company’s in-house composite tube winding operation provides high-quality tubes engineered to the specific print cylinder application. By varying the fiber types, resins and winding techniques, NimCor can customize tube strength and stiffness. As an alternative to steel or other metal print cylinders, lightweight carbon fiber cylinders also offer a more ergonomic solution. Print cylinders are readily available from NimCor in sizes to accommodate almost any web width and are competitively priced. NimCor:  www.nimcor.com  888-464-6267.
