At Labelexpo in Brussels, from 25th to 28th of September, Dutch company Laserclean introduces a brand-new laser cleaning machine designed for cleaning of Narrow-web Anilox rollers.
Label printing houses can purchase this machine to keep their rollers in optimal condition. The innovative and high quality system is affordable and over time one will notice that laser cleaning is the most economical method for cleaning of Anilox rollers because no consumables such as granulates, chemicals, or water are needed. Additionally, the highest printing quality can be achieved because laser cleaning restores both the surface tension of the roller and maximizes cell volumes, which in turn lowers ink usage.
Cleaning Anilox rollers with laser is being done for years in the corrugated and offset industry. Laserclean specializes in laser cleaning of Anilox rollers since 2003.
In recent years demand for high quality printing increases. To achieve high quality printing a deep clean roller is essential. However, nowadays traditional cleaning methods are no longer sufficient because of increased line-count and decreased cell volumes in rollers, causing significant quality issues for many printing houses. Laser cleaning is the alternative for traditional cleaning methods, such as using chemicals.
The Narrow-web laser cleaning machine is a compact system, easy to use, maintenance free, environmental friendly, and most importantly, cleans rollers excellently. Chain wheels and bearings do not need removal and after cleaning the roller can be used immediately. The cleaning cycle is so speedy that one can choose to use laser cleaning only, hereby saving on chemical cleaning substances.
