    A previous company I worked for had a set of Rotodyne oscillating form rollers on a Mitsu 3000 40" press. I am trying to find an alternative since Rotodyne is out of business, and Bottcher does not make them for the Diamond series presses.

    Hi. use in Google search: " chicago illinois repair printing rubber rollers "
    usually, companies engaged in the repair and restoration of coatings themselves sell shafts or know from whom to buy new ones.

    Are you certain that the press doesn't already have them installed from Mitsubishi? As I remember it there is a process to unlocking the form rollers so that they do oscillate. There is also a pneumatic switch that needs to be engaged to get them to move side to side.
