Hard Bridge is used to increase the size of the mandrel in the press. A sleeve reaches its limitations after a certain wall thickness. Hard Adapter eliminates the need for sleeves with a high wall thickness by bridging the gap in the circumference. Moreover, it is light-weight when compared to thick walled sleeves, making it easier to handle. It is also cost-efficient.
Tech Bridge® Soft
Tech Bridges® Soft, or ‘Soft Adapters’ or ‘Soft carriers’ are specialized products, used to print with In The Round sleeves (‘ITR’). These ‘seamless sleeves’ are generally used with traditional plate mounting for designs that need a continuous background colour, such as white or varnish. The soft outer layer of the adapter provides the compressibility needed for the required print impression.
