Cliché Sleeves

These are sleeves for the printing plate assembly with cushioning double-sided tape, which have been specifically designed for the flexible packaging industry. Later they are assembled on the mandrel by compressed air. Besides the classic thin sleeve made by glass fiber which is light, hard and resistant to solvents, we have come up with a sleeve characterized by a multilayered polyurethane lining. It guarantees dimensional stability and also a great precision and solvents resistance during the printing process. Both versions can be integrated with notch. These sleeves can be antistatic or conductive. Additionally, Pam has developed a special sleeve designed for assembly on hydraulic-expanding mandrels.

Materials: Fiberglass / Fiberglass + polyurethane


Carriers are supports made in order to reduce the difference between the outer diameter of the air spindle and the inner diameter of the sleeve. Essentially, a carrier increases the outer mandrel size without the need of a too tick sleeve, reducing its weight and consequently the cost. The use of high-module carbon fiber allows a greater structural stiffness, which results in reduced vibrations and a consequent better print quality.
