German printing machines guarantee quality, precision and reliability. Highly precise, low-friction and firm print roller bearings are a significant factor in reliable, razor-sharp printed Images. IBO solutions are predestined for this application – from the printer roller bearings to the gripper shaft control. The product range extends from client-specific roller bearings and bearing parts, through track and yoke type rollers up to complete bearing units. Bearings with increased performance and durability derive from the direct exchange of application and construction expertise.

In the design of the main bearing of print rollers we are challenged by the following requirements:

  • Very high radial running precision
  • Very high axial running precision
  • Very high rigidity
  • Very high bearing capacity

It is important in a series delivery that the spread of actual values is in a narrow range. This clearly reduces the expense in adjusting the pre-load during Fitting.

IBO cylindrical roller bearings and axial bearing washers meet these requirements. It is very helpful if our IBO team is involved right from the development Phase.
