Anilox QC and Anilox Management Systems (AMS)

Knowing the condition of the anilox rolls for a printer/converter has been proven to save considerable press setup time and reduce waste which inevitably increases profitability. Many printers do not realise how much valuable time and cost has been wasted and how quickly they could now make considerable savings for their company by implementing anilox quality control. Historically, to achieve the required densities, the printers are obliged to adjust the ink, when in reality the difference in volume of the anilox’s largely influences the imbalanced densities. Until the advent of this easy to use quality control tool, the actual volume of rolls in the anilox inventory was in reality unknown to printers – making it impossible to know if the roll volumes are matched and optimised for press setup. Now with the AniCAM HD users have the tool to provide them with this key information and to improve their operational profitability and improve their print quality.

Flexoplate QC

Having optimum control of your flexo plates and sleeves will save you time, waste and money.

The AniCAM with Flexoplate QC provides two readings methods: 2 dimensional readings with an automatic reflective or translucent dot detection and a 3 dimensional analysis which provides additional information on dot shape, height and relief depths.

The time and cost of defective plates will increase waste reduce productivity and profitability. Cost savings made over time through quality control on dot shape, relief, depth and dot sizes can be significantly high and will result in a fast return of investment.

Gravure QC and Cylinder Management System (CMS)

Knowing the condition of the Cylinders for Gravure printers has been proven to save considerable press setup time and reduce waste which inevitably increases profitability.

The AniCAM Gravure QC was developed for gravure printers where management of, and quality control of, the cylinders is desired.  In particular for in house recording of cylinder data, condition during use and to enable financial planning for refurbishment or replacement.  Used during the manufacturing process for quality control the AniCAM with Gravure QC and CMS can ensure correct opening, depth and volume preventing inconsistencies across the cylinder.

For Printers knowing the condition and wear of each cylinder in the inventory enables the printer to schedule for refurbishment or replacement, helping to provide better delta’s and consequently less press set up time and less waste.
