Carbon BS
Best in class Carbon Fiber Bridge

Bridge sleeves are commonly used on flexo presses to reduce sleeve weight, wall thickness and cost. Modern press productivity is sometimes offset by the nature of designs, causing vibration/bounce and visible streaks.

The Carbon BS Pneumatic Bridge technology offers exceptional dynamic response with exceptional reduction of bounce/visible streaks when it comes to printing demanding designs, as well as very low weight.

Features and benefits:

• Higher printing productivity thanks to structure damping properties and exceptional rigidity
• Reduced weight, especially on high wall thickness
• Smooth installation on press and quicker make ready
