Tech Bridge® Soft is a specialized product (compressible adapter) used with “In The Round (ITR)” sleeves for seamless printing. These “seamless sleeves” grant the design to have a continuous background without retaining any seams in the design (for e.g. wallpaper or gift wrapping paper).

The seamless sleeves are mounted on a Tech Bridge Soft with compressed air. The Soft adapter also provides the compressibility needed for the print impression.

Tech Bridge® Soft

Tech Bridge® Soft is available in various shore hardness (ShA) of 40, 50 and 60 to archive the best possible print quality.

  • ShA of 40 is used to reduce dot gain
  • ShA of 50 is more suitable for technical screens and small texts
  • ShA of 60 allows increasing color transfer.

The different colored edge in Tech Bridge® Soft helps the operator to easily differentiate between different shore hardness.
