Temkin completes its installation of PCMC’s Meridian laser anilox cleaner

Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) has completed its installation of PCMC’s Meridian laser anilox cleaner.   Formerly known as the Graphbury laser anilox cleaner, the Meridian uses a powerful laser to clean anilox cells without damaging them, by vaporizing deposited particles inside of the cells. It deeply cleans chrome and ceramic rolls of any line screen without causing surface wear. The result is a superior clean, improved print quality and a longer  life for anilox rolls.  “The addition of the Meridian laser anilox cleaner has significantly saved us time and money,” commented John Cowens, Director of Printing and Prepress at Temkin International. “Using our old cleaning method, we would lose volume over time, which would require us to use more expensive base inks to achieve color, as well as creating downtime to tone ink. With the Meridian laser anilox cleaner, rolls are cleaned to near full volume minus wear, which eliminates our need for adding base and toning time.”
