Stuttgart, Germany – Flint Group has launched two new new flexographic printing screens that feature advanced polyurethane materials.
PU makes Flint’s flexo sleeves lighter
The design of the base sleeve for the new rotec Smart and rotec Smart Premium incorporates easy-mount technology to increase the ease and speed of mounting, and improve productivity by making job changes faster.
The outer layer of the sleeves is made from PU, which the company says has excellent scratch and solvent resistance, and thus creating a long-lasting value-added product. The intermediate layer now uses polyurethane, enabling a weight reduction of up to 15% on previous designs, and making the handling of the sleeves easier.
