Magnetic Cylinder Primer

Simple. That explains magnetic cylinders and flat bases. They make things simple by using the power of magnetism to mount printing plates and cutting dies. They eliminate complicated mechanical devices, cumbersome sleeves, messy stickyback. Magnetic cylinders hold steel backed plates tight using a strong, stable, invisible magnetic field. Just line up the edge of the plate and release it. That’s all there is to it. Plates cling firmly to the magnetic cylinder without slipping, buckling, cracking, or stretching.

Registration is simple too. Choose from line-up pins, slots, or scribe lines. Or specify a special system suited to your application. All are designed to make plate mounting fast and accurate. And only one tool-a spatula-is needed for plate removal after the job is done.You needn’t throw that used plate away. It’s ready to mount next time you run the same job. With magnetic cylinders, plate life is determined by the number of impressions you make, not by how many times the plate has been mounted and removed.
