It wasn’t that long ago when printers and converters viewed carbon fiber rolls as little more than a higher-priced alternative to traditional steel rolls.
High-quality flexographic printing for packaging relies on print sleeves that retain their dimensional integrity regardless of environmental variables.
Enhanced nip point safety is a characteristic of vacuum rolls that is often obscured by the more obvious advantages these high-performance assets deliver.
Leaders in the corrugated industry rely on the corrugated roll engineering and manufacturing expertise of MECA to maximize box strength and roll asset lifespans.
Carbon fiber sleeves have developed into the material of choice for flexographic printers who value the benefits of this lightweight, high-strength alternative to traditional steel sleeves.
Premium print sleeves and precision rolls from MECA enable printers to hone in on tight tolerance targets and limit the variables that can affect high-quality print jobs.
MECA’s expertise ranges from standard idlers to advanced vacuum tension rolls, giving customers the ability to simplify their ordering process with a single supplier.
Web coaters and converters who offer applications that benefit from single-sided web contact are using vacuum tension rolls (VTR) to deliver high-quality output on a perfectly smooth substrate. MECA is an industry leader in this specialty category of roll design and production.
Flexographic printers looking to build larger repeats have a lightweight, cost-effective option in bridge sleeves from MECA Solutions.
Not all mechanically engraved rolls are created equally, and MECA Solutions LLC’s ability to leverage one of the largest inventory of tooling in North America for specific performance characteristics is a prime example.
