AccuMount ™ bridge mandrels
XYMID, LLC was formed as a spin-off from the DuPont Company on October 1, 1998 and is located just outside Richmond, Virginia.  The company consists of several businesses started while within DuPont and several started since the spin-off.  XYMID, LLC specializes in composite Print Sleeves, Bridge Mandrels and Protective Roll Covers for the Flexographic Printing industry and a variety of technical composite fabrics for commercial and military use.

With 60,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space at its Colonial Heights, Virginia facility, Xymid is well equipped to meet the demands of today's competitive flexographic market.  As flexographic printers work to reduce costs while increasing the productivity and profitability of their customers; Xymid has the flexibility to supply very simple or more complex print sleeve systems to meet customer objectives. These systems are specifically tailored to the many unique operational needs and business mixes found within the flexographic printing industry.  Whether keeping jobs mounted on sleeves to reduce press down-time, labor and raw material costs or using sleeves and bridge mandrels to reach a multitude of repeats, Xymid can provide the solution.

For the printer with a cantilevered or gearless press, Xymid offers their AccuMount bridge mandrels for use with both their UltraFlex and DuraRound sleeve products.  AccuMount bridge mandrels and DuraRound thick sleeves have a robust design with urethane end caps to seal the ends from moisture and to provide improved impact resistance. The outer surface can be replaced if damaged for much less than the cost of purchasing a new bridge or thick sleeve.

In many instances, printers can reduce their costs by using bridge mandrels in conjunction with thin sleeves.  This is particularly true when two or more sets of sleeves are required at a given repeat or when several repeats are close together and only one set of sleeves is required at each repeat.
