Compressible underpacking

Compressible underpacking for STRIP PLATE® coating plates

Coating plates are usually provided with flexible underpacking in order to achieve the required packing height. The underpacking has to be newly fitted every time the coating form is changed. Using a coating form cylinder base unit cuts the time and effort required for replacing the underpacking to a minimum because it can be left on your coating form cylinder for a longer period (generally at least six months). This means that you will only have to change the coating plate, which will save a lot of time. The base unit also protects your coating forms and compensates for differences in thickness. This has a positive effect on the quality of your coating result. The base unit will be custom-made to your specifications.

Main features
