Flint Group launches rotec ULW Bridge, addition to adapter family
Monday, 12 February, 2018, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
With the increasing demand in the printing industry for equipment that enables more frequent and faster job changes on press, Flint Group has launched rotec ULW Bridge to join the lightweight family of sleeves and adapters.

The rotec ULW Bridge is an ultra lightweight polyurethane adapter offering up to 65 per cent reduction in weight compared to similar products in the market – a significant weight decrease improving safety and handling for press operators.

Developed together with customers, this new generation adapter has been validated in applications on plate-mounting equipment and on presses running up to 450m per minute for the last one or two years.

Ralf Venema, general manager, Flint Group, said, “Our product development team is focused on developing products to help the customer work smarter, faster and easier. The rotec ULW Bridge is an excellent solution for improved safety and easier handling at the printer.”

The rotec ULW Bridge is suitable for all press widths and 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.

This ultra-lightweight adapter is currently available with two different air supply systems - air sourced from the air cylinder (Unifit version) or from an external air source (Airo version).

This new generation adapter is available with a wall thickness starting at 30mm and face lengths up to 2,000mm.

Additionally, the rotec ULW Bridge can be custom-made with special features, such as the rotec Eco Bridge technology with a breathable metal ring, which creates an air pillow for easier and faster mounting, or the rotec Omega technology for conductivity properties.  

Flint Group understands the industry requirements for products that accommodate more frequent job changes and increased efficiency as run lengths for print jobs continue to decline.

The lightweight family of rotec sleeves and bridges, including the rotec ULW Bridge, are just some of the latest solutions from Flint Group that make the work environment more productive and safer.
