MAN Roland Inc., Westmont, Ill., announced today that North American users of its presses can now go directly to St. Louis Metallizing Co. for reconditioning of press cylinders without the need of a service call or reference.
Expanding the benefits of its print services coverage, MAN Roland recently certified St. Louis Metallizing as its primary cylinder reconditioner for web offset and sheetfed presses. The company will be the only reconditioning facility with complete access to MAN Roland specifications and proprietary manufacturing information.
St. Louis Metallizing, which has reconditioned cylinders for more than 50 years, uses thermal spray coating for cylinder surfacing. Its Computer Numerically Controlled grinding and machining capabilities ensure refurbished cylinders’ dimensional integrity and operational stability.
