BENDER US Restoration Opens the Door to New Markets for Clients.
When the surface of a central impression cylinder begins to show its age (uneven wear, scratches, dents, rust, corrosion), it’s time to call Bender US –a veteran in machine performance, field service and spray coatings for over half a century. Always one of the printing industry’s leading sources for on-site, in-press surface restoration, Bender US has recently expanded its roster of technical personnel, updated its equipment and added to its arsenal of high performance thermal coatings for ci cylinders. The savings from performing in-press restoration is commonly $50,000 to $75,000 or more, if you factor in downtime. In-press restoration also eliminates the risk of surface damage on reinstallation. In addition, Bender’s proprietary coatings will allow you to reduce maintenance costs substantially over the next 2-3 years because Bender US-coated cylinders don’t require preparation after a down day. Bender US metallurgical lab has developed two highly effective coatings for ci cylinders. Both have been proven successful in the field. Both offer significant characteristics: Hardness ratings 2 to 3 times that of an uncoated cylinder, high bond strength, high density, low porosity, rust resistance. It all adds up to an excellent surface, superior print quality and years of maintenance-free operation. You could begin printing on your newly restored cylinder in as little as 60 hours from our arrival at your doorstep. Our mobile service module is Mid-West-based and ready to travel for all your restoration needs. Call today.

When Mike Rich, Inc. decides to get into the process printing, they began with the purchase of a distressed 20-year-old Kidder 660. The 60" x 48" CI cylinder was badly scratched and corroded and budget was limited. Plant Engineer, Bruce Hilleman, tells the story: "We felt, with proper reconditioning, we'd have a good 6-color web, so I got busy researching. BENDER US name came up again and again and, in the end, it was obvious why. They did a superb job. The entire process-grinding, spraying and repairs-was about 2 1/2 days. The restored drum surpassed OEM specs and my expectations by far. We had post-grind runouts of .0003 and 8 RMS finish. And our first process job took third place in a print competition sanctioned by the Flexo Technical Association. The BENDER US restoration has opened up a world of opportunities for us."
