Newly Launched dayGraphica® 4600 Heatset Blanket from Flint Group Offers Much Longer Life

Friday, December 12, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Plymouth, Michigan – The newly launched dayGraphica 4600 heatset blanket addresses three main challenges that directly affect press uptime: gauge loss, smashes, and blanket memory that limit blanket life and performance. 

“Flint Group’s technology team addressed all three concerns,” says Bill Branson, Flint Group’s Business Director – North American Blankets. “The effort involved substantial research, development and testing, and resulted in the new dayGraphica 4600 heatset blanket.” 

The key, says Joe Byers, Global VP Technology - Transfer Media Division, was designing three new elements and combining them into one product. “Built with a re-engineered carcass design, compressible layer and face rubber compound formulation, the dayGraphica 4600 heatset blanket significantly decreases the frequency and severity of the major blanket challenges in today’s press rooms.” 

“For offset web printers,” notes Mr. Branson, “the longer blanket life translates to a notable increase in press uptime due to fewer blanket changes. This saves valuable time and cost.”
