Thick Sleeve for Flexo

Nearly 90% of Flexographic Printers are using sleeves for many benefits.
- Faster job changes because mounting and inspection can be done off-press
- Fewer metal print cylinder diameters to make different repeat lengths
- Leave plates mounted if the job will be reprinted often
- Reduce the number of metal print cylinder changes and the downtime changes create
- Increase flexibility and capabilities of presses with lower investment
- Increased quality because preparing a job is not a race to get the press restarted

Xymid is innovating beyond their bridge mandrel and sleeve products. They are now building Thick Sleeves with thick walls that can hold plates for those jobs that you print time after time. Instead of using bridge mandrels and thin sleeves, slide on a single thick sleeve for each color, check and print.
