HM Carbobridge Standard - Flexographic Printing Adapters

Pneumatic adapter to reduce plate mounting sleeve thickness. It enables an important reduction in weights by easing manual movement of the loads with considerable savings over time in machine preparation (job change). The HIGH MODULUS (HM) carbon fiber tube reduces vibrations and enhances printing quality at high production speed. Anti-static, it is compatible with all Rossini plate-support sleeves. Sleeve mounting is particularly easy thanks to the compressed air distribution sent via an internal circuit with independent power supply. Rossini patent no. 1275901.

Hony Sleeve Stat - Flexographic Printing Sleeve

Anti-static, plate mounting sleeve with external Everstat polyurethane coating for use with double-sided adhesive cushion tapes. The intermediate layer between the base sleeve and the outer coating is made of Honeycomb; its very low density enables a reduction in sleeve weight up to 70% if compared to a traditional sleeve of equal dimensions. The mechanical characteristics of the Honeycomb guarantee a reduction/absorption of typical stroke vibrations in flexographic printing. Made of conductive materials in compliance with work safety standards published by the “PTB” (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt - Germany) for flexographic printing presses.

Sleeves Mandrels and Rollers

Rossini designs and manufactures pneumatically powered sleeve mounting mandrels and rollers for flexographic printing, coupling, coating and other special applications. The technical office is available to design and manufacture your mandrel based on the required process characteristics.
• Conical and/or parallel mandrels in steel with reduced volume of compressed air (Patented) • Conical and/or parallel mandrels with hubs in steel/aluminium and high volume carbon tube to raise the natural frequency, the damping properties of the plate stops, reduce the final weight and therefore the moment of inertia; all of this improves the quality of the end result, increases the printing speed and machine productivity.
All the products can be supplied in aluminum, steel or HIGH MODULUS Carbon Fiber.

About us

Company details

Rossini SpA is a world leader in the manufacture of rotogravure rubber coated sleeves and rollers and flexographic plate sleeves and Carbon Fibre carriers.
The Rescaldina offices, just outside Milan, are the headquarters of an extensive network including 7 production sites and 4 sales offices in different parts of the world. The company was established in 1928 from an intuition of Erminio Rossini, who started the first small workshop producing inking rollers for printing presses.
Since then the company has travelled a path of constant development, marked by the passage from the original workshop to a full- edged production site in Milan.
From the 1950's until today, Rossini has been consolidating a network which today include sites in Rescaldina (Milan-Italy), L'Aquila (Italy), Atlanta (USA), Barcelona (Spain), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Timisoara (Romania) and Pune (India), all connected by an effcient intercontinental distribution system and an integrated software platform.
The R&D department plays a central role in designing and testing new products and materials, often destined to set the standard in the industry. Rossini is a strongly innovative company, as testifed by the many market- leading patents.
The company also includes a Global Customer Satisfaction centre with a customer service department which connects clients directly to the most qualifed person to take care of their needs.
The Rossini brand stands for quality, as testified by the full satisfaction of the company's clients. Its technological leadership has been certified UNI:ISO 9002 since 1996 (now UNI:ISO 9001) and is proven by the tight working tolerances Rossini SpA guarantees on each product.
