Roller Cleaning

Are you noticing a gradual decrease in the volume of your anilox rollers? Your rollers regularly come into contact with inks, paints, cleaning agents, water and all manner of chemical substances. The diversity of the chemical processes involved is immense. Depending on the region of use, anilox rollers may even be subject to limescale deposits from the water used to rinse them.

Our cleaning options pamper your anilox rollers like no other treatment – our professional deep cleaning counter decreasing performance, thereby helping to maintain outstanding print results in the long term. Regular care lets you extend the service life of your anilox rollers and save the money that you would otherwise have to spend prematurely on new ones.

Laser Cleaning

The cells on the anilox roller can become clogged with ink residues during use, which reduces the volume of the cells concerned. We therefore recommend that you subject your anilox rollers to laser cleaning at least twice a year, in order to prevent this occurring. After laser cleaning with LaserEcoClean technology you can take full advantage once more of the pick-up volume of your anilox rollers, and thus reap the same benefits as you would at the beginning of uniform colouring in the printing process.

Microscopic imaging of our method shows how laser cleaning – in contrast to conventional procedures, which often fail to remove all residues – leaves the bottom of each cell as clean and shining as those of a brand-new roller. Our cleaning method removes all traces of ink and lacquer, without damaging the micro-structured surface.

You too can now opt for this environmentally sustainable procedure.

  • There are no consumables, so acquisition and waste disposal costs are low.
  • There is no hazardous waste, which makes the process environment-friendly.
  • No harmful chemicals are used in the process.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

The ultrasonic anilox cleaning thoroughly removes ink and laquer residues by using a combination of ultrasonic waves and cleaning detergents. With this cleaning method you will benefit from the following advantages:

  • Highly efficient removal of impurities
  • A longer service life for the rollers concerned
  • Reduced downtimes thanks to faster cleaning
  • A system of bath filtration lengthens the service life of the cleaning fluid, thereby reducing the consumption of chemicals
  • Easy to install and use

Contact us, we will be pleased to advise you regarding the ideal cleaning option for your needs and inspect your rollers on request.
