FOLEX ROTOCALCO GRINDING STONES FOR CYLINDER PREPARATION
To ensure the efficient preparation of gravure printing cylinders, it is indispensable to use suitable abrasive material. Folex Rotocalco grinding and polishing stones have been developed to achieve uniform roughness on different metal surfaces with a moderate expenditure of time and little stone abrasion.
Folex has been manufacturing grinding/polishing stones specially made for finishing copper, chromium and steel for more than 25 years.
Partner to the printing industry – for over 50 years
Folex has stood for ground-breaking solutions in offset printing for over 50 years. As a result, we have an extraordinary wealth of experience that makes us your contact of choice on the market.
Our success story in offset printing began in 1963, when Folex presented the first polyester montage film with anti-static treatment. Our Folanorm AS and Folanorm AN products became the synonym for montage film in the 1970s.
In the 1980s, our self-adhesive, dimensionally stable polyester underpacking foils then made for a substantial boost in productivity and set new standards in modern printing operations. We wrote a further chapter of this success story in the 1990s by launching our cuttable polymer plates for inline coating. Folacoat coating plates very rapidly gained an excellent reputation around the globe. Compressible underpacking materials completed the successful range of coating plates.
The products we offer today include coating systems comprising universal coating plates and compressible underpacking for perfect coating transfer, as well as underpacking foils for high-performance printing.
