Rilsan Ink Roller Re-covering
Using our unique ‘Unilon’ process, we can refurbish any Rilsan ® covered inking roller back to a “better than new” standard at a much lower cost than OEM replacements.
Ink-metering micrometric rollers
These can be re-covered to the highest standards using our UNILON process (upvc and copper also available). Ideally suited to high speed web offset presses, all the usual features and advantages of UNILON apply. We have developed the Precision Ink Control (P.I.C.) process for application to ink metering rollers. This unique pattern gives maximum ink volume with minimum ink fly while its pattern is less aggressive to its mating roller, thus improving roller longevity. Various OEM’s use this and similar patterns which we can produce, from a simple knurl (single or double cut) through to unequal diamond (Roland) or spiral flutes (K.B.A.).
Printing Cylinder Reclamation
Worn or damaged printing cylinders may be refurbished to original standards using advanced metal deposition techniques, including thermal spraying and electroplating.
Duct Roller Re-grinding and Re-metalling
We can re-grind duct rollers to the high accuracy required for good ink metering, even on electronic keyless systems. They can also be rebuilt to original diameter in hard, wear-resistant steels or ceramic.
