PCMC solution to consistent ink transfer and superior print quality on every job

Most robust anilox suffers from wear and tear, with ink residue accumulating in its microscopic cells. This can lead to a decline in print quality and wasted materials. The Meridian Elite Laser Anilox Cleaner by PCMC deploys a powerful laser to vaporise unwanted debris from the cell cavities.

Unlike traditional methods that rely on harsh chemicals or water, the laser process is completely dry. This eliminates messy waste disposal and the risk of damaging the anilox itself. The laser beam targets and vaporises contaminants, ensuring a deep clean that restores the anilox to its optimal performance level.

Vikram Fotedar, CEO of Packone Solutions, says, “The Meridian Elite boasts the industry's fastest cleaning cycles, minimising downtime and keeping your printing operation running smoothly.”

The laser technology ensures a uniform clean across all cell depths and avoids generating hot spots, a common concern with other cleaning methods. This translates to consistent ink transfer and superior print quality on every job.

What sets it apart? Fotedar says, “Its innovative laser technology, combined with intelligent features and a user-centric design, makes it a valuable asset for any flexographic printing house. For printers seeking a superior cleaning solution that prioritises efficiency and quality, the Meridian Elite Laser Anilox Cleaner stands out.” 

The Meridian Elite is equipped with a cloud-based data storage system. Every cleaning cycle is meticulously logged, providing valuable insights into cell volume changes and overall anilox health. This information is accessible remotely, allowing you to monitor your anilox inventory and make informed decisions about maintenance schedules.

The user-friendly interface and automated cleaning cycles further elevate the user experience. The intuitive touchscreen control panel streamlines operation, while safety features ensure a secure working environment.

The Meridian Elite Laser Anilox Cleaner provides a good return on investment. Reduced cleaning times, improved print quality, and extended anilox life all contribute to a more efficient and cost-effective printing operation.
