Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1068961A2] Mounting of a plate (4) having an embossed relief (7) onto a patrix cylinder (2) which turns synchronously with a co-operating matrix cylinder (3) in a rotary embossing machine is achieved by first provisionally fixing plate (4), which has an adhesive (6) on its reverse side, to the matrix cylinder (3) and then transferring it to the patrix cylinder (2) making use of the fact that the provisional bond is of lower strength than the bond between plate (4) and adhesive (6). Mounting of a plate (4) having an embossed relief (7) onto a patrix cylinder (2) which turns synchronously with a co-operating matrix cylinder (3) in a rotary embossing machine is achieved by first provisionally fixing plate (4), which has an adhesive (6) on its reverse side, to the matrix cylinder (3), the embossed side facing the matrix and the bonding being at each negative form (5) corresponding to the relief (7). The adhesive strength of this provisional bond is less than that between the layer (6) and the plate (4), and plate (4) is transferred to the patrix cylinder (2) by synchronous turning of the cylinders (2 and 3) such that the plate (4) is detached from the matrix cylinder (3) and automatically stuck via adhesive (6) to the patrix cylinder (2) at the appropriate positions. An Independent claim is also included for a patrix cylinder (2) having fixed to it a plate (4) with an embossed relief (7) on its outer side.
