EZ LOCK™ Anvil Cover Installation Instructions

The EZ Lock™ Anvil Cover attaches to the anvil cylinder by magnetic force.

Notice: for safety, always remove cutting dies before installation or rotation

Important: EZ LOCK rotary die blankets are made to precise dimensions for a tight fit. Please remove any debris from the cylinder and keyway before beginning installation. Also, make sure both the keyway and cylinder are free of burrs. Burrs, especially in the keyway, can cause difficulty installing the EZ LOCK. Burrs can be quickly removed with a file.

Installation

Step 1
  • Insert the end of the cover that contains the magnets into the keyway first (this is the end with 4 full width knuckles).
  • Wrap the cover around the cylinder.
Step 2
  • Insert the second end of the cover into the keyway so that the two sets of knuckles engage each other.
  • Move the cover laterally by tapping it with a mallet, if necessary.

Removal

Remove the covers as needed by prying
  • Below the keyway lock bar with the EZ1000 pry bar or similar tool. To avoid damaging the cover DO NOT attempt to pry under the cover in any other location. Rotate the position of the cover on the cylinder as needed to increase cover life and to improve cutting quality.

Rotation schedule

Suggested EZ Lock Rotations
  • To maximize blanket life and cutting quality, EZ Lock blankets must be rotated on a regular basis. CUE recommends rotation EZ Lock every 100,000 impressions or once a week, wichever comes first. More frequent rotations promote increased blanket life and cutting quality.
