FLEXSTOR SLEEVE STORAGE SYSTEMS for the FLEXOGRAPHIC PRINTING INDUSTRY

Sleeve manufacturers recommend storing sleeves vertically so that over time gravity does not cause them to lose roundness. Sleeves that will go out of round are difficult or impossible to put on press mandrels.

FLEXSTOR provides the solution to these problems.

Sleeves that are stored on pegs on the wall risk being dropped from high elevations causing damage to the sleeve. Also, storing sleeves at high elevations is risky to the safety of the person storing or removing the sleeves.

FLEXSTOR provides the solution to these problems.
