Our products

Product category: Damping rollers

WBD Series

No tearing or breaking of the rubber because WBD30 has higher tensile strength and mechanical strength compared to a conventional roller.
Great shock absorption property due to smaller impact resilience of the rubber compared to a conventional roller.
Excellent abrasion resistance compared to a conventional roller.

※Hardness 30 Shore A

Product category: Damping rollers


SIGMA SOY, having high resistance to Soy oil based inks, has minimal changes in dimension and hardness even after a long term use.
Hardness increase of rubber surface is minimal and is difficult to get glazed.
Excellent physical properties prevent hangnails on the rubber surface even in an application of ink doctor rollers for web.
SIGMA SOY has minimal heat buildup. Therefore, nip-width change is minimal even in high speed runs, providing stable ink transferability.
SIGMA SOY is applicable for both sheet fed and web but its remarkable effect is shown especially on web.

* Hardness (Shore A): 25・30・35・40

Improved durability (cost-saving)
EcoMax has resistance to Eco-friendly inks such as vegetable oil based inks which usually deteriorate rubber rollers in the way of rubber shrinkage and hardness increase.
Also, improved rubber strength prevents glazing and hangnails on the rubber ends.
Ink stability in the press
Compared to conventional rubbers, inks on newly installed rollers are more stable. Even during printing which needs to minimize ink amount, e.g. a line printing, it provides stable printing without troubles caused by insufficient ink transfer or insufficient ink flow.
Great performance in high speed runs
EcoMax has minimal heat buildup property even in the higher speed runs in sheet-fed and web. Because the nip width and ink viscosity are not affected by heat, it enables stable printing in high speed.

* Hardness (Shore A): 25・30・35・40・50・60
* Color: Dark Blue
