Fine-Pattern Metal Sleeve for High Functional Film Production Oct. 13, 2017

Sleeve surface is covered with fine patterns.This is the new application to be used for high functional film production.

How can we pattern sleeve surface?

There are two ways.

First, we weld fine-patterned plates and make them one sleeve.
The welding lines are almost as flat as the parent surface.

Second, we make a replica sleeve from the original roll.
The original roll is covered with fine patterns.
It is a hard roll, not elastic at all.
These patterns are made by drilling or laser and is expensive.

By copying the pattern from this hard roll,
we make a thin wall sleeve.
Fine patterns are copied on a thin wall sleeve.
We can make this sleeve repeatedly.
Fine-Patterned Endless Mold

Then customers can use these copied sleeves just like a jacket sleeve.
The original hard roll is not used for pattern transfer on films.
It is kept as a mother roll or a mold to produce copied sleeves.
Then maintenance cost of this expensive mother roll goes down a lot.
