Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0330736A2] A printing cylinder has a longitudinal slot (12) formed in the surface thereof to define an undercut locking surface against which both ends of a flexible printing plate (11) are clamped to hold the plate (11) securely against the surface of the cylinder. Locking means (25) excluding a curved outer surface for contacting the ends of the flexible plate (11) and clamping them against the undercut locking surface are provided. Spring biasing means (32) are disposed in operative compression between the locking means (25) and the bottom of the longitudinal slot (12) to urge the curved outer surface of said locking means (25) outwardly against the undercut locking surface.
