Laserclean B.V.: Anilox roller cleaning with laser – now available for sleeves of up to 210 cm length
11th December 2018
At ICE Europe 2019, Dutch company Laserclean will present a brand-new laser cleaning machine, specifically designed for cleaning ceramic sleeves.
A clean roller is essential for high quality printing. However, traditional cleaning methods are no longer sufficient, due to increased line count and decreased cell volume in rollers. This causes significant quality issues for many printers.
Laserclean’s sleeve laser cleaning machine ALCS 2100S is a compact system, easy to use, maintenance-free, environmentally friendly and, most importantly, cleans rollers excellently. Chain wheels and bearings do not need to be removed and the roller can be used immediately after cleaning. The cleaning cycle is so speedy – less than 40 minutes for an average roller – that laser cleaning can be used on its own, without any chemical cleaning substances.
Laser cleaning is a highly sustainable and economical method of cleaning Anilox rollers, since no consumables, such as granulates, chemicals or water, are needed. It helps achieve the highest print quality by restoring the surface tension of the roller and maximising cell volume. This, in turn, reduces ink usage.
