The PlateMaster™
Printing Cylinder Assembly


At Bunting® Magnetics Co., our engineers never back down from a challenge. So, when we set out to improve cylinders for the Stolle Rutherford® decorators, they didn’t stop at just making our system faster, easier or more accurate. We also made it just 11 ½ lbs – 25% lighter than competitive cylinders. After four years of development and field testing, the PlateMaster™ is ready to make your printing incredibly fast and accurate.

Unmatched accuracy
Perfect for today’s high definition print jobs, the patented PlateMaster™ offers a combined shaft and cylinder runout of less than 7/10,000th of an inch.

One-tool registration
The only tool required to complete fine registration is a small hex head wrench requiring only two adjustments. A precision rack & pinion system connecting the cylinder and the hub controls radial adjustments. Simply rotate the adjustment screw right or left to make the registration pins rotate clockwise and counter-clockwise. The timing pin registration coupled with the rack & pinion adjustment makes registration nearly perfect – and extremely easy.

Cut down on downtime
You remove the 11½ lb (5.2 kg) cylinder simply by loosening the hex head screw in the center of the cylinder hub. It takes just minutes. We even include a cylinder mounting tool to assist in handling cylinder changeovers. And at 2,200 cans a minute, you’ll get more production out of your Stolle decorators than you ever thought possible.

What makes The PlateMaster™ tick?
The double-end expanding mandrel is the heart of The PlateMaster™ assembly. The cylinder won’t jam or swell on the shaft because the fingers of the expanding mandrel contract, allowing free removal of the cylinder even when heat from running the machine causes the cylinder body to expand.

Benefits include:
•     Features tight accuracy of 7/10,000th of an inch for high definition printing.
•     Lightweight cylinder with adjustable hub weighs just 11.5 lbs. – 25% less than others.
•     Quick mount system cuts changes to less than 1 minute.
•     Precision registration with single screw “in” and “out” adjustment.
•     Fully interchangeable components.
•     Spiral magnet design to hold printing plates in place
