Prepress Roller Solutions

Prepress is a vital part of every printer’s workflow. Clean, efficient and accurate plate and film production are necessities in today’s marketplace. Rubber roller coating breakdown is the most common problem with prepress equipment. Rollers can be exposed to harsh chemicals which combined with elevated temperatures accelerate the decompostion of the rubber coating and its bond to the metal core. Many times the material used by the OEM is not conducive to this environment and breaks down more quickly than it should.

J.J. Short Associates, have over 35 years experience working with the rubber coated rollers from prepress equipment including platesetters, flexo and packaging, imagesetters, computer to film imagesetters and film processors and platemaking equipment.

Many times refurbishing your rubber rollers is more economical than purchasing an entirely new rollers at overinflated pricing from the OEM and their dealer network. Further many servicable makes and models of prepress equipment are no longer supported by the OEM, who instead try to force you into a new equipment purchase. Before scrapping your rollers or your machine, please contact us.
