Luminite has developed the first patented* “Air Sleeve” System that does not require an air mandrel. This enables sleeves and mandrels to be of different lengths, meaning it can usually be used with your plant’s existing mandrels.

Patented Load-N-Lok Benefits:

With the Patented Load-N-Lok technology, printers are able to:

  • Mount sleeves with lengths 2.000” longer than the print width.
  • Mount sleeves with standard minimum lengths of 6.000”.
  • Mount multiple sleeves onto the same mandrel.
  • Use one sleeve on multiple presses with the same BCD — regardless of press type, width, or manufacturer.
  • Serve multiple customers at once with multiple sleeves on the mandrel.
  • Reduce costs with shorter sleeve use.
  • Experience faster set-up time.
  • Increase printing speeds.

This new process allows printers more flexibility than ever, while saving time and money — without ever compromising accuracy and great impressions.
