Daetwyler USA, a supplier of doctor blades and other pressroom products, has partnered with Sandon Global for anilox rollers and sleeves. Under the agreement, Daetwyler will provide sales, marketing, distribution and after-sales services support for Sandon Global’s wide range of anilox technologies.
Headquartered in Runcorn, England, Sandon Global specializes in the manufacturer of anilox rolls and sleeves.
David Young, president of Daetwyler USA said: ‘Our approach to superior print results has always been to provide our customers with 360-degree solution. While Daetwyler is typically known for our high-quality doctor blades, our depth of expertise involves all ink transfer technologies – including anilox products.
‘Flawless printing requires excellent quality from every component of the printing system. Sandon Global not only provides such quality but continues to push forward through a tireless commitment to innovation, a philosophy we share at Daetwyler. The coming together of these two brands matches the best anilox products in the industry with the best doctor blades in the industry, the result of which is unmatched print performance.’
The new partnership will offer customers a wider selection of engraving patterns to suit flexo print and coating applications on a variety of substrates and offer the capability of in-house manufacturing of lightweight cores with stainless-steel end rings/caps. It will also provide customers with the ability to accept custom engraving orders.
Customers can now obtain sizing for both imperial and metric measurement rollers and sleeves and specialty engravings for litho, gravure, and flexo coating applications. High-precision surface polish to preserve cell volume and extend doctor blade life will also be available.
