Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0858890A1] The attachment includes a clamping mechanism (18) which has at least one movable clamping jaw, movable between an open and closed position. The clamping mechanism clamps the ends (14,15) of the printing plate (13) together, and is removably contained in the axial slot (21) in the plate cylinder (11). The clamping mechanism joins the ends of the printing plate before it is inserted into the axial slot in the plate cylinder. The clamping mechanism in a direction radially positioned in relation to the centre of the cylinder has one or more slanting or conical sides supported on matching sides of the axial slot.
