CI CYLINDER RESURFACING
Onsite central impression cylinder repair for the flexographic printing industry
Serving Customers Worldwide
When the surface of your Central Impression Cylinder begins to show its age (uneven wear, scratches, dents, rust, corrosion), it’s time to call Bender CCP – the veteran in machine performance, field service and spray coatings for over half a century. Always one of the Flexographic Printing Industry’s leading sources for on-site, in-press restoration. At Bender CCP, we have recently expanded our roster of technical personnel, updated our equipment and developed C.I. cylinder coatings.
OnSite Cylinder Service Capabilities:
- Thermal spray coating with Bender’s proprietary brand coatings
- Spot repair and patching
- Grinding and polishing with portable grinder
Bender CCP offers two Thermal Spray Coatings:
HS-610A 45 Rc and HS-610B 60+ Rc
- Very dense Coatings < 1% Porosity
- Rust and Corrosion Resistant
- 8-12 RMS Finish
- Superfinishing to achieve 3 RMS if needed
- Precise Concentricity of <.0005 Total Indicated Runout
- HS-610B provides a harder, virtually scratch and corrosion-resistant surface
HS-610B has a proven track record of performing successfully on more than 70 C.I. Cylinders for more than 7 years. With hardness ratings of 2 to 3 times that of an uncoated cylinder, low porosity, rust and corrosion resistance adds up to an excellent surface to achieve superior print quality and years of maintenance free operation.
When Mike Rich, Inc. decided to get into the process printing, they began with the purchase of a distressed 20-year-old Kidder 660. The 60″ x 48″ CI cylinder was badly scratched and corroded and budget was limited. Plant Engineer, Bruce Hilleman, tells the story: “We felt, with proper reconditioning, we’d have a good 6-color web, so I got busy researching. Bender CCP’s name came up again and again and, in the end, it was obvious why. They did a superb job. The entire process-grinding, spraying and repairs-was about 2 1/2 days. The restored drum surpassed OEM specs and my expectations by far. We had post-grind runouts of .0003 and 8 RMS finish. And our first process job took third place in a print competition sanctioned by the Flexo Technical Association. The Bender CCP restoration has opened up a world of opportunities for us.”
