|20140299010||PRINTING BLANKET WITH NON-EXTENSIBLE BACKING MOUNTABLE IN A SINGLE REEL ROD LOCK-UP - Printing blankets having non-extensible backing plies such as, for example, metalback blankets, are provided which have a construction that is adapted to be mountable onto blanket cylinders having a gap containing a conventional single reel rod lock-up mechanism. The blankets include first and second relief areas positioned such that when the blankets are mounted onto a blanket cylinder, the relief areas substantially align with the point at which the lead and trail ends of the blankets are inserted into a gap in the blanket cylinder to secure the ends in the lock-up mechanism.||10-09-2014|
|20140113785||PRINTING SLEEVE INCLUDING MELTABLE POLYMERIC CORD REINFORCING LAYER OR POLYMERIC REINFORCING LAYER - A printing sleeve is provided which includes a reinforcing layer formed from a polymeric cord reinforcing material which softens and flows at a temperature less than that used in the final curing step of forming the sleeve or a polymeric reinforcing material having a thickness of between about 0.003 inches and 0.010 inches. The reinforcing layer provides a smooth surface to support an outer print surface layer and provides improved print performance while enabling a reduction in the overall thickness of the reinforcing layer.||04-24-2014|
|20140109783||PRINTING BLANKET INCLUDING MELTABLE POLYMERIC FABRIC REINFORCING LAYER OR POLYMERIC REINFORCING LAYER - A printing blanket is provided which includes a reinforcing layer formed from a polymeric fabric reinforcing material which softens and flows at a temperature less than that used in the final curing step of forming the blanket or a polymeric reinforcing material having a thickness of between about 0.003 inches and 0.010 inches. The reinforcing layer provides a smooth surface to support an outer print surface layer and provides improved print performance while enabling a reduction in the overall thickness of the reinforcing layer.||04-24-2014|
|20130183466||COMPRESSIBLE PRINTING SLEEVE CARRIER AND METHOD OF MAKING - A compressible printing sleeve carrier for use in offset lithography which is formed from a composite fiber-reinforced compressible polymer is provided. The printing sleeve carrier is formed by coating reinforcing filaments with a compressible polymer and winding the filaments around a mandrel to form a hollow cylindrical base, where the first portion of the base adjacent the inner surface contains the wound reinforcing filaments coated with the compressible polymer and the second portion of the base adjacent the outer surface contains the compressible polymer.||07-18-2013|
|20120288801||FLEXOGRAPHIC PRINTING PLATE ASSEMBLY - A printing plate assembly for use in flexographic printing application is provided which includes an integral carrier layer, one or more cushion layers, and one or more photopolymer layers. The photopolymer layer(s) in the integral assembly are provided with relief images using digital imaging photopolymerization, which eliminates the need for a back exposure step and provides a precise relief depth for the plate.||11-15-2012|
|20110176841||DIGITAL IMAGE TRANSFER BELT AND METHOD OF MAKING - An image transfer belt is provided for use in digital printing applications which includes a base film layer having perforations therein which are filled with a conductive polymer layer to provide controlled conductivity to the belt. The belt further includes a compliant layer over the conductive polymer layer. The resulting belt exhibits electrical properties suitable for digital image transfer. These properties may be varied according to the desired application.||07-21-2011|
|20090286443||PRINTING BLANKET CONSTRUCTION - A printing blanket construction is provided which includes a reinforcing fabric ply comprised of a weft insertion fabric or a heavy gauge fabric, where the reinforcing fabric ply provides all of the necessary tensioning properties to the blanket. The use of the reinforcing fabric ply eliminates the need for additional reinforcing fabric plies in the blanket construction, and provides high tensile strength, low stretch, and resistance to gauge loss.||11-19-2009|
|20090124148||METHOD OF MAKING COMPOSITE PACKING MATERIAL FOR USE IN OFFSET LITHOGRAPHY - A composite packing material for use with a printing blanket is provided including a substrate such as fabric, scrim, or film which is coated on at least one surface with a polymeric compound to provide the desired gauge to the printing blanket assembly. The resulting composite packing material has a thickness of about 0.010 to about 0.067 inches (0.25 mm to 1.7 mm) and is substantially volume non-compressible.||05-14-2009|
