Pneumatic adapter with Carbon fiber covering to reduce plate mounting sleeve thickness. It enables an important reduction in weights by easing manual movement of the loads with considerable savings over time in machine preparation (job change). Anti-static, it is compatible with all Rossini sleeves. Sleeve mounting is particularly easy thanks to direct sending of compressed air from the printing press mandrel (Flow-Through) . Reduces plate mount sleeve costs while enhancing printing quality. Rossini patent no. 1275901.

Fibreglass base sleeve with compressible layer; the special intermediate layer in ultra-light polyurethane supports the outer, carbon fibre coating. The carbon fibre side flanges guarantee total resistance against humidity and solvent penetration. The protective, steel ring integrates the interlock register notch.
