With a high impact on all productive and creative industries, the 3D printing phenomenon changed the course of history as we know it. Offering a reliable and fast solution for different types of problems 3D printing enthusiasts and curios people quickly formed communities to share, learn and talk about different 3d printers and models. With such a great evolution and worldwide spread in a short period, it was only a matter of time until the educational potential of 3D printing got noticed. Here are 3 facts that managed to change education and teaching systems through 3D printing:
Compressiblesleeves have an outside cushion layer. By making use of compressible sleeves you create more standardization, more constant print quality and a reduction of your tape costs of 30%. This special outer layer is made out of cellular, water crossed-linked foamed polyurethane. Soft compressible sleeve
PropertiesThe soft, cushion layer can be offered in different kind of densities: 40, 50 and 60 Shore hardness.
PrintingThe use of soft sleevesreduce bouncing. Also soft sleeves create standardization in the printing process. Due to better tolerance it is possible to have higher print speeds and pressure.
QualityThe tolerance of compressible sleeves with plate is 7.5% better than a regular sleeve with plate and cushion tape.
SavingsWith this compressible layer you use non-compressible thin tape whichsaves up to 30% costs. It is also possible to store sleeves with plates mounted on it, without reducing the compressibility!
Why use compressible plate sleeves?
Tech Sleeves has chosen for cellular, water-crossed linked foamed polyurethane, because its a special material with great high value properties such as:
- High rebound resilience
- Up to 50% compressible without bulging
- Resistant to permanent deformation
- Good abrasion resistance
- Resistance to ageing and weathering
- Resistance to cleaning solvents used for polymer plates
AV Flexologic is proud to be the market leader in supplying flexographic mounting equipment. But we also know that this comes with a responsibility. The high standards in the flexo industry push printers to supply high quality, to work more and more in 3 or 4 shifts and to maintain an efficient workflow. We need to keep our equipment up and running, a responsibility we can meet with our new maintenance contract. We guarantee full-time support to our customers all around the world, preventive maintenance visits, discount on spare parts, software updates and unlimited remote support. Please watch the video below to get an impression about our support organisation:
Maintenance visitsThe yearly planned maintenance visit is a preventive visit to ensure that everything is running perfectly. All the expenses are covered under the maintenance contract. Your overall accuracy will improve thanks to frequent calibration, and thus higher print quality.
Discount on spare partsAV Flexologic’s machinery is designed to sustain centuries. Yet, some parts might depreciate after heavy use. Therefore, the maintenance contract enables you to a discount on spare parts.
Software updatesAV Flexologic’s software is updated quarterly with constant improvements and changes. Our engineers are working relentlessly to make the machinery even faster, more accurate and more automated which is mainly due to software improvements. With the maintenance contract, you do not only receive free software updates, but also discounts on upgrades.
24/7 SupportThe maintenance contract grants you a 24/7 access to first-line support which can assist you in various matters.
Unlimited remote supportWith the maintenance contract, we offer unlimited remote support via Teamviewer. The support technicians can support you through any process to find a solution quickly. This ensures fast and efficient help. We understand the needs of our customers to have our equipment back up and running as soon as possible in the unlikely event of an issue. Therefore, we can offer an additional performance guarantee clause to guarantee that we have an engineer on the way to you within 36 hours of a machine begin down.
If you would like to request an offer for the maintenance contract or performance guarantee, please contact us.
