    Unhappy Recommendations for Cylinder Repairs

    I've recently damaged 3 cylinders (plate, blanket and impression) with ball bearings. Can anyone recommend a reputable company for repairs? What costs am I facing?

    We pioneered a unique and effective cost saving method to repair damaged printing cylinders caused by accident, erosion and corrosion. Damages, such as indentations on printing cylinders can be filled electrolytically with copper then hand-polished to its original concentricity. A cosmetic nickel is then plated for final finish.

    The advantage of utilising Sterling Brush Plating or selective plating technology to repair damaged printing cylinder is that REPAIR CAN BE DONE INSITU. You SAVE ON DISASSEMBLY AND REASSEMBLY COSTS, REPLACEMENT OF NEW CYLINDERS, LABOUR COST AND PRODUCTION DOWNTIME.

    Conventional electroplating requires plating tanks. The printing cylinder for repair is removed from the printing machine and sent to a workshop. Sterling Brush Plating will save you shipping, disassembly and reassembly costs by bringing electroplating services to your factory premises for the repair. The bond strength and metal hardness deposited is as good as conventional immersion electroplating.

    We have been offering our on-site services to the varied industries in the Asia Pacific Region for more than 20 years now. The Sterling Brush Plating or selective plating process is your best professional decision to repair damaged printing cylinders.

    If you have a problem with your printing cylinder, and would like to know more about the Sterling Brush Plating process, please contact us now.

    Alternatively, we also offer hardchrome and copper plating immersion services.

    Yours faithfully

    Or you could do like we did and use bondo. One of our guys accidentally dropped a allen wrench in one of the presses trying to adjust the forms on the run and it got caught between the plate and blanket cylinders. We filed the raised portions flat and filled in the indentations with bondo. Of course you then have to shape the bondo afterwards.

    Hello HachiZenki,

    you can take a look at the URL attached.
    Printing Application

    We are transferring our technologies to interested parties who wish to conduct the repair in-house. You will be trained and handle the repairs by yourself. Above that, we will give you the technical support on consultations and will conduct your first and second repair together with your technicians. This training attachment will ensure the skills are adequately transferred.

    Do consider the offer and write to me at (sunny.tan@sterling.com.sg)

    Thank You.

    Best Regards,
    Sunny Tan

    We accidentally did that on a Komori Sys38 between the blanket cylinders on the 1st unit. We ground it down, added "quicksteel" and its been fine ever since. That was about 2 years ago. Of course we use steelback blankets, so that makes a little bit of a difference. I'd recommend it as a temp fix though, because the quicksteel wears away after a while.
