Our patented AirFlex® oscillating rider roller reduces streaks from water and inks by erasing the memory of the print image from the dampener form roller, reducing your printed waste. AirFlex® rollers have adjustable pneumatic speed control, with an air-driven oscillation stroke of 0.75″ (1.905cm). Each roller is a self-contained unit requiring no maintenance. The hard chrome shafting and sealed radial bearings mean that this roller will have a long, maintenance-free life in your press. AirFlex® rollers are covered with our proprietary Nylo-Lyth™ 77A hard nylon compound that eliminates glazing, poor ink transfer, and stripping while being impervious to the harsh chemicals it will encounter in your press.
AirFlex® improves your print quality with these key benefits:
- Eliminates the ink build-up on dampener form rollers in the image areas that causes ink piling.
- Reduces water banding around the plate cylinder.
- Reduces the need for isopropyl alcohol.
- Breaks up and dissipates water build-up accumulated in the plate cylinder gap.
