Super SEE ZONE (Anti-Marking System)

The innovative Super See ZONE Anti-Marking System is the world’s first time saving system for identifying and correcting marking issues. The ZONE system allows a pressman to quickly identify the area on the transfer cylinder where marking is occurring and easily communicate to his helper which ZONE to clean, eliminate the marking, and get back up & running quickly.

The Super SEE ZONE is a two piece anti-marking system that consists of a high performance, long-lasting glass bead transfer cylinder jacket with a corresponding ZONE Overlay.

With the Super SEE ZONE system installed, the operator can easily identify a ZONE in need of cleaning by simply lining up the overlay with the printed sheet to determine the exact ZONE to be cleaned on the cylinder jacket vs. cleaning the entire surface of the transfer cylinder.
