rotec® Adapter

The perfect fit for every cylinder configuration

Product Overview

  • Easy-mount Technology
  • Superior Dimensional Stability
  • Conductive option
  • Eco Bridge option
  • These products are ideal for high-speed applications, because the construction and materials of these adapters provide bounce reduction properties.
  • These products provide superior dimensional stability, because the adapter construction includes an additional glassfiber barrier layer to prevent any growth.
  • Available with rotec® Ω Technology that provides complete conductivity from the base sleeve through to the surface.
  • Available as Eco Bridge version, which uses patented air distribution system for significantly easier sleeve mounting.

Benefits

  • Standard adapter for the flexographic industry
  • High durability and stability
  • Several air supply alternatives available to meet press-specific requirements
  • Available as Bridge, Unifit or Airo versions for customised air transfer system

Air source

How the air flows into the adapter

Bridge:

For wall thicknesses below 10 mm. Conducts air from the air cylinder to the surface via air holes.

Unifit:

Customised air transfer system for most types of air cylinders. In the Eco Bridge version, the air holes are replaced by a breathable metal ring on the operator side.

Airo:

Dedicated external air connection system. In the Eco Bridge version, the air holes are replaced by a breathable metal ring on the operator side.

Air Distribution

How the air flows out of the adapter, in order to mount the sleeve

Standard Air Holes

4-8 air holes on operator side, additional holes along the length of the adapter

Eco Bridge – breathable metal ring

Breathable metal ring along the entire circumference of the adapter on the operator side. Eco Bridge can be used with an Airo or Unifit Air Source and no additional air holes are typically needed along the length of the adapter.

  • Up to 90% less compressed air needed for easy sleeve mounting
  • 99% reduction in noise
  • Increased efficiency for cost savings and improved productivity
