Nickel sleeve by electro forming

Here we introduce how our nickel sleeves are made.

First we prepare for a mother roll.

This mother roll is placed in basin so that Nickel ions are accumulated by electrolytic deposition on a mother roll surface.  When accumulation reaches the required thickness, this Nickel sleeve is taken out from the mother roll.

Nickel sleeve-fomed process:
Mother roll → Electrolytic deposition → Detached and separated

 This is completely seamless and a cylinder almost same as the mother roll.  These are unique features of Nickel sleeves that welded endless belts cannot compete.  Electrolytic deposition is being improved and heat restiveness is better than the conventional ones and  sometimes we do no find surface defects.
