Plate Formers are an ideal addition for use in all printing operations. By using the Plate Former, you can store metal-backed plates and photoengravings flat. This will save storage space and allow for any operation to quickly pre-shape the plates for mounting in seconds. The kit is easy to assemble and is very compact for storage when not being used. Any printer using flexographic, dry-offset and letter press plate processes should have a Plate Former!
The Plate Former, which fits on any table top, cuts press downtime and extends plate life. It curves printing plates after processing. Also, it speeds up setups on either magnetic or conventional cylinders and reduces the risk of plate damage. The Plate Former allows the operator to adjust the pressure needed to get the correct curl on the plate prior to use. This product can curve plates without causing flats and can be used to pre-shape the edges of the plate.
The Bench-Model Plate Former features a 20” maximum plate width capability, 360º curving capability and has pressure adjustment capability. The Bench Model weighs only 40 lbs.
Web Protection Magnets
Installed above the paper feed on your press, these economical separation magnets prevent ferrous objects from passing between the cylinder and anvil. They ensure that your Anvil Rolls and Cylinders are not damaged by metal contaminants finding their way onto your web.
Web magnets reduce the opportunity for foreign metal objects to reach the cylinder anvil rolls, creating damage and resulting in downtime of your important jobs.
Our Web Protection Magnets come in various lengths from 17 – 42 inches. Should a custom length be required, we have the ability to provide a length to serve your individual need.
Web Magnets are also available in both standard Ceramic and Neodymium Magnetic loads.
