Flint Group has launched the new rotec ULW Bridge
With increasing demand in the printing industry for equipment that enables more frequent and faster job changes on press, Flint Group launches the new rotec ULW Bridge.
The lightweight polyurethane adapter offers up to 65% reduction in weight compared to similar products in the market - improving safety and handling for press operators. Developed together with customers, the adapter has been validated in applications on plate-mounting equipment and on presses running up to 450m/min for the last 1-2 years.
Suitable for all press widths, the new generation adapter offers particular benefits where higher wall thicknesses are most commonly used, such as in cantilevered mounter applications and unusually large print applications, including corrugated pre-print.
The adapter is currently offered with two different air supply systems, and is available with a wall thickness starting at 30mm and face lengths up to 2000mm. It can also be custom-made with special features such as a breathable metal ring that creates an air pillow for easier and faster mounting, or technology for conductivity properties.
