Maybe you can improve print quality and lower costs by repairing your cylinders too?

    Can you reduce  your cost of quality by repairing your offset-web press cylinders?



 Engineered Services for Print Cylinders include: 

  • Complete Plate & Blanket Cylinder reconditioning
  • Journal repairs
  • Bearer changes
  • Dynamic balancing


 Journal Repairs  Maybe you don’t need to repair the whole cylinder? 

Over time, journal diameters can wear and cause a reduction in production quality and efficiency.

Sometimes plate or blanket cylinders require complete reconditioning, but sometimes a simple repair to the journal, or a re-stubbing of journals may be all it takes to keep your press running effectively.

The cost of repairing a journal, versus replacing or reconditioning an entire cylinder equals reduced maintenance costs.

Replacing and repairing journals has been an important part of how we save money for our customers every day.

Let HFW help you find ways to minimize your repair costs, while maximizing production!

High quality print is imperative in today’s environment. The cost of scrap and press downtime due to poor quality can cost you money or even a customer!

For over 40 years, HFW Industries has worked with offset-web press OEMs, rebuilders and print facilities to keep production running profitably by repairing press cylinders. Better running cylinders equals better running presses.


It all starts with a detailed inspection of your worn cylinders to determine the work scope involved. See below for details…


 Going from worn to new

Every print cylinder that comes into HFW for reconditioning goes through the exact process outlined below, resulting in the same outcome – highly satisfied customers!

Step 1: Detailed Inspection

  • Disassembly and cleaning
  • Preliminary inspection of cylinder
  • Received condition (Diameter, TIR and surface condition)
  • Review parts for condition

Step 2: Engineered Services Manager Review

  • Analyze condition and establish work scope
  • Review with customer (If desired)
  • Prepare quotation (Or work scope summary)
  • Submit to customer

Step 3: Customer Approval

  • We will not initiate work until our customer fully approves and understands the work scope entailed

Step 4: Remanufacture

  • Prepare for coating
  • Establish Duragap® protective edge (If desired)
  • Thermal spray (Via metallize, plasma spray, or HVOF processes)
  • Proof finish
  • Precision machine slot (gap) to required width and radii
  • Dynamic balance and make necessary weight corrections (If required)
  • Assemble and install new bearers, bearings, and component parts
  • Finish grind to specifications
  • Final assembly
  • Inspection / documentation
  • Packaging
