Last week, at the annual FlexoTech International Print & Innovation awards in London, AV Flexologic received the innovation award for its TIR Sleeve Measurement System.
This system measures the 3D Landscape of the sleeve to check if a sleeve is still in good condition.
Various sleeve suppliers indicate that the average lifetime of a sleeve is 2-3 years. However, for flexoprinters it can be hard to detect which sleeves are worn out and need replacement, and which ones can still be used in production.
The TIR Sleeve Measurement System detects all the high and low spots on the surface of the sleeve and displays them in a spectrum view of different colors. Knowing the exact condition of the sleeve is essential for high speed production with minimum pressure settings on the press. The data of every sleeve is automatically stored, to monitor its condition over time.
The TIR Sleeve Measurement is available as stand alone machine, but can also be fitted in the Semi Automatic Mounting Machine (SAMM) or Fully Automatic Mounting Machine (FAMM).
