HarperScientific, a division of global anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America, is now offering custom imaged proofer rubber transfer rolls. These proofer transfer rolls can be personalized from text or graphic files.
The imaged proofer transfer rolls work in all HarperScientific's Echocel Junior, Phantom, and Phantom QD proofers. Laser engraved in the round, these rolls can bear the client's image of choice, like a company logo or tone scale. A reversed out text file on the end of the roll face provides a way to specifically identify ink room proofs. A tonal scale image allows users an efficient way for checking ink characteristics at a 50 percent or other desired screen.
Besides providing custom engravings, two tonal scale designs are available. In the “standard” panel scale, 10 percent, 35 percent, 50 percent, and 75 percent screens are centered and wrapped around the repeat with a 100 percent solid on either side. The second predesigned “continuous” tone scale has 25 percent, 50 percent, and 75 percent screens again flanked on either side by a 100 percent solid. Customers interested in “continuous” tone scale rubber rolls can choose from 45, 55, and 70 durometer EPDM while “standard” tone scale rubber rolls are offered in 55 and 70 durometer EPDM.
