Plastic wear bushings

Prolong the service life of your Media!

No more wear for hex head shafts and drive pulleys. Now your MEDIA II/III (series 0043/ and above) can be fitted with drive pulleys with plastic bushings which serve as wear parts. The benefit is immediate!

After conducting in-depth research, BOBST has designed ultra-resistant plastic wear bushings. These minimise friction and extend the service life of the hex head shafts and drive pulleys. Now there is no need to replace all the drive mechanism components: only the wear bushings need to be changed. Reduce your maintenance costs.
