rotec® adapters

Rotec Adaptersrotec® adapters are high performing adapters to reduce the wall thickness of printing sleeves. They are tailor-made according to the customer specifications. Choose a rotec® adapter for bridging diameter differences between air cylinder and sleeve.

The perfect fit for every cylinder configuration – sophisticated air flow system and extremely low tolerances

  • Quick set-up times, easy handling and cost saving
  • Optimal air flow for easy mounting of sleeves
  • Suitable for conventional cylinder presses and quick change cantilevered machines

rotec® Bridge Adapter Adapter with pass through air conduction

  • Available wall thicknesses from 4.1 mm to 9.5 mm
  • With pass through air conduction – conducts air from the air cylinder to the surface via air holes
  • Suitable for conventional cylinder presses and quick change cantilevered machines

rotec® Unifit Adapter Perfect fit for almost all types of air cylinder as nearly independent of the air hole pattern

  • Available wall thicknesses from 9.5 mm to 80 mm
  • Dedicated air conduction system with defined air hole pattern utilises the cylinder air ring on the operator side, permitting an optimal air flow nearly independent of the cylinder configuration

rotec® Airo Adapter Adapter with compressed air connection and dedicated air conduction system

  • Available wall thicknesses from 15.9 mm to 125 mm
  • Compressed air connection and dedicated air conduction system transports air to the surface

rotec® Atlas Adapter Highest performance due to carbon-fibre structure – For outstanding printing results and high press speeds

  • Available wall thicknesses from 15.9 mm to 125 mm
