The run through the printing press influences freshly printed sheets. Careful coatings ensure consistent print quality, especially after turning.
Protect the freshly printed sheets
In addition to ink or blankets, the cylinder geometries or surfaces and their properties are very important for the quality of the sheet guidance and the print quality at higher production speeds. Only with special coatings which protect the freshly printed sheets, it is possible to save or even increase the productivity and quality.
Transport the sheets flutter-free and smoothly
The sheet guiding delivery cylinders transport the sheet flutter-free and smoothly without any relative movement from one printing unit to the other. Through the transfer inside the printing machine, the sheet can give ink to the cylinders what results into ink buildup. The continuously soiled surfaces can be transferred to the printed sheets and appear as unclean parts.
How to prevent such unclean parts?
To prevent and reduce appearances like that, there are special designed Transfer Jackets like the Heidelberg Transfer Jackets Blue. They are known for their special nanostructured coating. The sol-gel coating reduces the manual cleaning effort of sheet guiding cylinders a lot. The cylinder jackets are changeable and they offers the print workers the possibility to change them quickly and easily at any time.
