In response to the increasing need for offset-quality with offset-plate cost competitiveness, RDP Marathon offers its most recent technology, the Sleeve Offset Lithographic Independent Drive (SOLID™) technology, as a retrofit custom-engineered solution for many press models.

Sleeve-offset technology is ideally suited for packaging printers who require a wide range of sizes and run applications on a broad range of substrates. While the printer may have a significant investment in existing variable-repeat offset presses, those presses do not meet the print repeat variability required for packaging. RDP Marathon sleeve-offset technology offers offset print quality at the affordability of infinite sleeve size change.

Sleeve-Offset Features

  • Print Width: match press width
  • Print Repeat: Infinitely Variable
  • Toolless change of lightweight sleeves
  • Precision independent servo drive of sleeves
  • Independent substrate tension control
