Flexo Sleeve Storage Solutions

Looking for better flexo sleeve storage solutions for your flexography operation? Protect your print sleeve investment by storing them in a safe, sturdy and efficient storage system using one of our FLEXSTOR and FLEXSTAND flexographic sleeve storage systems. Unlike our competitors, our storage systems store sleeves vertically, so that the force of gravity does not turn the round sleeves oval. Oval sleeves are near impossible to place on a press mandrel, and replacing deformed sleeves is an additional expense you simply don’t need.

This dynamic racking system allows the highest density of sleeve storage in the minimal amount of space. Guides and frictionless rollers allow the trouble-free movement of racks from side to side to create an access aisle exactly where you need it without the waste of valuable floor space.

Flexographic Sleeve Storage Safety

Our flexographic storage systems feature two rows of storage racks, safely secured with upper adjustable discs and soft lower pads to prevent damage to the top and bottom of the sleeve. These discs and rubber pads make sure the sleeves are kept in place, with no risk of tipping over. With maximum two rows of sleeves per level, sleeves are easily identifiable while being stored and effortlessly accessed when needed. The FLEXSTOR and FLEXSTAND flexographic sleeve storage systems are comprised of a steel frame, and covered with a scratch-resistant powder coating that creates a clean, polished, impressive appearance demonstrating professionalism within your organization to your employees and clients alike. Its modular design allows for easy expansion at any time, as more sections can be added with ease as your business grows.

Unlike systems that store sleeves horizontally, and very high against a wall, this system minimizes the potential of a sleeve being dropped on someone while being removed, thereby improving employee safety and minimizing damage from a sleeve falling to the floor.
