Description

The economy roller jig provides a smaller and more lightweight option than our premium jig and it comes with fixed height rollers. The jig bed and lining-up pins are made from a durable plastic so they can be easily kept clean. Its quality fixed roller has a set height of 3mm and a maximum usable width of 210mm, which is suitable for most standard number plate sizes.

Using the Jig and Roller

Using this economy roller jig to assemble a number plate means following some simple steps to ensure every plate made has a professional finish. The instructions below on assembling number plates using film or reflective printing should only be considered a basic guide.

Film Printing

First take the rigid reflective plate and place it adhesive face up on the jig, use the pins or guides so it sits square. Pull back a few centimeters of the adhesive’s cover on the right, near the rollers and fold the flap over so it stays in place. Secondly, carefully line up the clear film sheet on top with its printed side facing downwards. Use the pins or guides to keep the film flush and join the two components together at the edge exposed earlier. Thirdly, slide the joined components towards the rollers, with the joined edge closest to the rollers. If it helps, lay the film over the rollers out of the way and take hold of the adhesive cover flap. Slowly wind the roller arm so the components are fed through, keeping hold of the flap. This will pull the remaining cover away while the rollers removes any air from between the two pieces of media and bonds them together.

Reflective Printing

First take the clear acrylic face and place it adhesive face up on the jig, use the pins or guides so it sits square. Pull back a few centimeters of the adhesive’s cover on the right, near the rollers and fold the flap over so it stays in place. Secondly, carefully line up the reflective sheet on top with its printed side facing downwards. Use the pins or guides to keep them flush and join the two components together at the edge exposed earlier. Thirdly, slide the joined components towards the rollers, with the joined edge closest to the rollers. If it helps, lay the reflective over the rollers out of the way and take hold of the adhesive cover flap. Slowly wind the roller arm so the components are fed through, keeping hold of the flap. This will pull the remaining cover away while the rollers removes any air from between the two pieces of media and bonds them together.

Maintenance

The jig bed and vertical lining-up pins are made from a durable material which along with the roller sides can be easily wiped down. The rollers are made from a soft rubber, so take care when cleaning not to scour their surface. Use a lint free cloth and mild detergent, wipe away any dust or dirt and allow all surfaces to dry completely before further use. Keep your economy roller jig in a clean environment so finished plates made with it aren’t contaminated with dirt or grease. If any pins become loose they can simply be tightened up by turning them clockwise.
