Flint of Plymouth, Michigan, has released its new dayGraphica 4600 heatset blanket, which the company describes as addressing three main challenges that directly affect press uptime: gauge loss, smashes, and blanket memory.
“Flint Group’s technology team addressed all three concerns,” said 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.”
Joe Byers, Global VP Technology for Flint’s Transfer Media Division, continues to say the key to the new blanket product 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," he explained, "The dayGraphica 4600 heatset blanket significantly decreases the frequency and severity of the major blanket challenges in today’s pressrooms."
