axis of the support so that edges of the bars at the stereo

alternate in their polarity and each of which extends in the
direction of the cylinder generatrix.
In order to ensure that the magnetizable stereo shall
be securely held, as many poles as possible should be pro
vided in close juxtaposition round the periphery. This
brings about a distribution of the magnetic ?eld in which
the lines of force remain in the immediate vicinity of the
cylinder surface so that they will then all pass through
the relatively thin magnetizable layer of the stereo.

779,949 and a more detailed description thereof is there

What we claim is:
1. A printing cylinder for supporting a magnetizable
?exible stereo, comprising a support and an assembly of
magnet elements, said elements comprising soft iron bars
and plate-shaped permanent magnets magnetized across
their thickness, certain of said magnet elements having
