We have a wide range of cylinders for flexo printing and label production. On-demand production is tailored to the customer’s requirements and machine model.
Our manufacturers use the highest quality materials (steel, aluminium, rubber, ceramics, etc.) combined with CNC machining systems.
Cylinders require a high degree of precision in their dimensions, where tolerances are kept to a minimum to ensure good print quality.
All cylinders require customised tooling for on-machine operation. Therefore, we supply with our cylinders the gears with spur or helical gears, in standard or hardened steel, depending on the customer’s needs.
We can also supply the necessary gears to provide the printer with the cylinders ready to be fitted on his flexo press.
All flexographic machines require gummed cylinders that fulfil different functions:
We provide the service of re-gumming or manufacturing with the core made to the customer’s requirements with different types of rubber: NBR, silicone, EPDM, etc. depending on the application and the composition of the inks or coating that have to come into contact with the cylinder.
The rubber covering the cylinder is manufactured by adjusting the density of the rubber depending on the application. The hardness is measured in Shores A and we can produce from 25 to 80 ShA.
It is a cylinder made of aluminium or resin, with shafts or hollow, whose function is to transmit an image to the substrate by placing a cliché or photopolymer on its perimeter. A double-sided adhesive is first applied to hold it in place and ensure good ink transfer.

Worn bearings can cause vibrations in the machine, noises or smearing in the printing process, among other problems.
There are three standard types of hardness, but any other type can be manufactured on request. We can also supply different dimensions in inner and outer diameter.
