Copier / Overview


Schlegel is active in serving the printing industry with components that provide innovative solutions for all types of design challenges. The experts at Schlegel provided have major manufacturers with timesaving, money-saving improvements for all types of photomechanical equipment.

Schlegel specializes in the development of "perfect fit" light seals. Urethane foam is extruded, molded and clad in polyethylene film to produce a durable, resilient light-tight seal that can withstand continuous use and retain its original shape. Schlegel light seals are frequently called upon in manufacturing film and plate processors and phototypesetters.

Schlegel quality components are currently found in:

  • Presses
  • Copiers
  • Printers
  • Dust Removal Systems
  • Collators & Sorters

Schlegel engineers design unique combinations of textiles, rubbers, foam and metal. We maintain complete control over advanced technologies of weaving, knitting, extruding and finishing systems for due cutting, hole punching and specialty adhesion to produce quality parts that fit any design configuration.

Light Sealing is among the most difficult of sealing functions. Schlegel has two groups that address this challenge. Urethane foam seals are extruded, molded and clad in film to produce durable, resilient light seals in film and plate processors and phototypesetters. Specially woven pile fabrics are also commonly used around a light-tight door, in a cassette or at imaging stations.

Paper Transport is involved in almost all stages of a printing process, and Schlegel can provide a motion control product for every stage. Teflon® fiber plush pile is a high lubricity, abrasion-resistant pile fabric that allows web material to move freely while shielding it from machine's internal mechanism. As a result, this fabric makes a highly protective covering for rollers and housings as well as dependable transport for safe, smooth movement of film materials.

Static Dissipation is handled by LECTRA-CON conductants. There very conductive, diversified pile assembles are capable of dissipating up to 96% of a surface static charge. And they are designed to maintain this level of performance for the life of the equipment with virtually no maintenance. Ultra-thin filament diameters produce a soft abrasion-free pile, suitable for use in presses, folding machines and paper and envelope sorters. Schlegel can supply LECTRA-CON conductants in convenient brush assemblies.
