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
  • Using the pins place your reflective plate adhesive face up on the jig, positioned flat and square. The registration should read from left to right.
  • Fold back a few centimetres of the adhesive cover, top right corner of the plate, nearest to the rollers.
  • Use the pins and line up the Film on top, its printed side facing towards the plate and apply to the top right corner, where the sticky reflective plate is exposed.
  • Carefully join the two components together by hand at the exposed edge.
  • Slide both parts towards the rollers, joined edge nearest.
  • Take and keep hold of the folded adhesive cover.
  • Slowly wind the arm so the components are fed through the roller.
  • The adhesive cover should be pulled away while the roller bonds the parts together.
Reflective Printing
  • Use the pins and place your Reflective on the jig, positioned flat and snug. The registration should be facing up reading from left to right.
  • Fold back a few centimetres of the adhesive cover on an Acrylic face.
  • Line up the Acrylic on top, adhesive facing down towards the reflective.
  • The corner of the acrylic that is exposed and sticky should stick to the top right corner of the reflective – closest to the rolling mechanism.
  • Carefully join the components together at the exposed adhesive, ensure the edges match.
  • Slide both parts towards the rollers, joined edge nearest.
  • Take and keep hold of the folded adhesive cover.
  • Slowly wind the arm so the components are fed through the roller.
  • The adhesive cover should be pulled away while the roller bonds the parts together.
  • Remove the other protective cover from the Acrylic.
  • Finally, place it onto a cutting mat and remove any excess reflective from the number plate.
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.
