Scanbag installs Flexo Wash laser cleaner

The Danish converter Scanbag has installed a laser anilox cleaner from Flexo Wash FW2000 at its production plant in Skive

The Danish converter Scanbag has installed a laser anilox cleaner from Flexo Wash FW2000 at its production plant in Skive.

The FW2000 model was introduced in 2018 as the first laser cleaning unit in the Flexo Wash cleaning range. The new laser technology is suitable for 100 percent cleaning without damage to the costly rolls, with the guarantee of consistent print quality and reduced downtime.

‘We are very satisfied with the cleaning results and the easy handling of the aniloxes. We tested another system, but it damaged the rolls. With the Flexo Wash system we have no issues at all,’ commented Søren Bligaard, printer at Scanbag.

‘For us it was important to develop a Laser Anilox Cleaner with as much safety as possible. The ceramic on the anilox rolls is very delicate and can easily be damaged when cleaning with a laser, so safety is extremely important,’ added Anders Kongstad, technical director at Flexo Wash.

The new Flexo Wash laser cleaner sits well with the company’s ethos of quality, safety and focus on the environment. It is easy to load, with the anilox rolls placed into a drawer and then slid into the machine, the FW2000 monitors all aspects of the anilox including cell depth, rotation, and laser performance. Its inventory management system provides full traceability of each roll so that performance levels can be closely monitored.
