What’s new at Polywest

Polywest has done a big step forward in the further development of adapter technology with its new product Spacer. The Spacer offers, especially in the field of thin sleeve technology, enormous advantages compared to the conventional adapter technology. With the innovative Spacer technology printers will be able to reduce costs, save time and above all allow a simple but save mounting of the thin sleeves. The new Spacer of Polywest meets exactly these criteria. The thin sleeve is mounted on the adapter outside of the printing machine on a separate Spacer-Mounter. This offers an easier handling and leads to a precise fitting of the sleeves compared to the mounting inside of a press. Also set-up times are reduced.

Afterwards the Spacer with the mounted thin sleeve can be used as any other plate mounting sleeve regardless of the position of the air outlets on the air mandrel or the adapter.
