rotec® adapters

rotec® adapters are high performing adapters to reduce the wall thickness of printing sleeves. They are tailor-made according to the customer specifications. Choose a rotec® adapter for bridging diameter differences between air cylinder and sleeve.

The perfect fit for every cylinder configuration – sophisticated air flow system and extremely low tolerances

  • Quick set-up times, easy handling and cost saving
  • Optimal air flow for easy mounting of sleeves
  • Suitable for conventional cylinder presses and quick change cantilevered machines
  • Available wall thickness from 15.9 mm
  • With unique, breathable metal ring across entire circumference on operator side to mount sleeves
  • No additional air holes along the length of the adapter are needed
  • Faster, more efficient air pillow
  • Easier and faster sleeve mounting
  • Available as Unifit or Airo version
