INOflex GRP Anilox sleeves
Also known as: GFRP Anilox Sleeve, Anilox sleeves
In addition to the conventional anilox sleeves, INOMETA also offers the weight-optimized INOflex® GFRP anilox sleeve, which is corrosion-resistant even beyond the outer edges. The INOflex® GFRP anilox sleeve is optimally designed for the requirements in the flexographic printing, and will work reliably with other INOflex® products from INOMETA, but it can also be used with printing unit components from other manufacturers, thus elevating the printing performance and quality to a completely new level.
At home in the flexographic printing field
Our entire INOflex® product range is designed for the specific requirements in the field of flexographic printing. Our INOflex® GFRP anilox sleeve enables us to utilize the optimal damping properties of GFRP to reduce or fully avoid the resonance effects and vibrations induced by the print image within the flexographic printing unit, as these can lead to a short-term print quality deterioration, and severe printing unit damages in the long-term. Its corrosion resistance enables the transfer of highly corrosive media.
Fast printing job changes create a lot of movement in the production. The weight of flexible machine components which must be mounted during each job change will play an increasingly important role in your day-to-day business. The use of fiber composites such as GFRP enable the combination of a low product weight and an improved performance during the printing process. The optimized lightweight design of the INOflex® GFRP anilox sleeve provides a low weight, which in turn facilitates an easy transport and a fast handling for all formats.

High degree of quality. Low maintenance costs
The INOflex® GFRP anilox sleeve is manufactured in the respected superior INOMETA quality. An excellent manufacturing quality in combination with corrosion-resistant glass-fiber components will ensure minimal downtimes during the running production process. The optimized stiffness ensures the stability, improves the ink application and reduces the wear of the doctor blade. Reliably functioning printing unit components ensure lower repair and downtime costs, and therefore facilitate an optimal machine productivity. The glass-fiber reinforced base core is 100% corrosion-resistant, so that even aggressive media is unable to influence the performance or the service life.
