IPT To Offer Signa Roller Recovery & Exchange Service
IPT are now able to offer Sigma rollers via both an Exchange and Recovery service.
Sigma manufactures the highest quality press rollers for the leading sheetfed presses. Using superior rubber compounds, their printing rollers deliver excellent print results and last longer. Sigma's quality has long been recognized by the sheetfed press manufacturers including Heidelberg, Komori, MAN Roland, Mitsubishi, KBA and others who specify Sigma rollers for their new presses. They know they can trust Sigma rollers to meet OEM specifications, matching the required core weights, hardness and wall thickness. In lesser rollers where core weights and wall thickness are not correct, the core may flex at the high speeds in today's presses and lead to colour variation. Sigma rollers are press ready. This means that they are fitted in our factory with new bearings and accessories so you are assured properly aligned rollers. Take them out of the box and put them directly in your press! Most importantly, you get excellent and consistent printing results with Sigma rollers - precise and even transfer of ink and fountain solutions - with fewer adjustments. You will be able to keep the presses running longer with optimum printing results by using Sigma rollers on your sheetfed offset presses.
Roller Exchange Program
- You call us and we ship your new rollers to you immediately.
- We invoice you only for the cost of the rubber covering.
- You ship us your old rollers, the ones being replaced. And if you do not change out your rollers immediately, that's okay too. You have 60 days to return your old rollers to us at one of our locations.
Almost all of the rollers in our Roller Exchange Program are shipped press ready. This means that they are fitted in our factory with new bearings and accessories.
Roller Recover Program
Sigma will also recover your old rollers. Send your old rollers to us and we will cover them with the same award-winning rubber compound that we use on all of our new rollers. We use unique processes to apply the rubber to the core and to vulcanize the compound.
Each roller is ground by computer-controlled grinders and tightly calibrated. For most models of rollers, we replace the bearings so that it will arrive in your shop press ready. Recovered rollers will perform just as well as new ones.
Recovering cores you send usually takes from one to two weeks.
