To mount your Flex-Float sleeve onto the cylinder simply apply compressed air at
approximately 50 PSI through the air inlet, enabling you to “float” the sleeve into position. Fingertip guiding is all that is required to fine-tune the final position. Once air pressure is removed, the sleeve will become vacuum-tight to the bare cylinder for mounting and /or the actual press run.
Ease of Handling
Flex-Float sleeves are constructed of tough polyester material, plus they are feather light to handle.
The Flex-Float sleeve becomes the carrier for the mounted plates. Thus -, re-runs are easy because the plates are stored in register on the sleeves, saving on remounting and re-registering costs.
We ship your sleeves in 1/8” thick fiber tubes. These tubes can also be utilized for storing the mounted Flex-Float sleeve. A label is placed on the lid of the tube for easy identification. Storing the plate-mounted sleeve in these tubes will protect the plates from accidental bruising while keeping them free of dust and ozone.
