Roller Recovery and Exchange

Böttcher Rollers

Böttcher manufactures the highest quality press rollers for the leading sheetfed presses. Using our superior rubber compounds, our printing rollers deliver excellent print results and last longer. Böttcher’s quality has long been recognized by the sheetfed press manufacturers including Heidelberg, Komori, MAN Roland, Mitsubishi, KBA and others who specify Böttcher rollers for their new presses. They know they can trust Böttcher 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. Böttcher 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 Böttcher 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 Böttcher rollers on your sheetfed offset presses

Chameleon Roller Compounds

For UV, Hybrid and Conventional Inks

A Böttcher exclusive, Chameleon roller compounds are designed for use in mixed mode printing. Chameleon rollers allow the printer to switch back and forth from conventional, hybrid and UV inks without fear of roller damage. Chameleon rubber adapts to the ink environment. To guarantee optimum dynamic properties, Chameleon incorporates Böttcher’ proprietary ARDT (Advanced Rubber Dynamic Technology). Since Chameleon compounds contain no PVC, they run cooler than other so called dual purpose rollers. Böttcher’s Chameleon Technology was awarded an InterTech Technology Award by GATF in 2005. Böttcher Chameleon compounds are available in 25 and 38 Shore A.
