Anilox Roll Cleaning

Why Clean Anilox Rolls?

Anilox rolls are critical to efficient, quality printing so it is important to keep them clean

Eaglewood TechnologiesEaglewood Technologies has helped printers and converters globally save money and improve their print quality by removing dried ink, adhesives, coatings and varnishes from their rolls and sleeves. Our systems also easily clean coating rolls in offset presses and glue rolls on corrugators.

How will proper anilox roll cleaning benefit your operation?

The anilox is the heart of the flexographic printing press and any issues with the anilox roll will undermine the print quality. Here are some ways that a consistent clean across the entire anilox roll will benefit your operation:

  • Avoid press downtime caused by having to scrub your anilox rolls with brushes
  • Decrease the use of caustic chemicals — our products are eco-friendly
  • Reduce the potential of rejected product from the customer
  • Use less ink and less substrate
  • Increase the lifespan of your anilox rolls
  • The same system can clean anilox rolls, coating rolls, adhesive rolls, journaled rolls, and glue rolls
  • The line count of your roll and the engraving will not affect how this system cleans
  • Quickly deep clean your anilox rolls after power outages cause the ink to dry and plug the anilox
  • The Sanilox™ System uses a food grade media that is USDA and FDA approved for use in food grade facilities
  • Clean faster and more consistently than all other technologies, while being the economical and completely non-hazardous option

How It Works

Laser cleaning achieves success through ablation. The laser heats the material which absorbs the laser energy and evaporates or sublimates the ink chemistry. There are some particles or residues that cannot be destroyed by the laser but are removed from the surface and collected by the Sitexco extraction system. The laser used in this system is specifically designed to efficiently and effectively remove any ink chemistry by using the right pulse repetition rate which allows for the most accurate dwell time to assure proper cleaning.

DEEP CLEANING

The intelligent laser used in the Sitexco System ablates any ink chemistry leaving your rolls, ceramic or chrome sparkling clean. Sitexco delivers a consistent clean, every time.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sitexco only uses 4 kw of power per hour (less than your household dishwasher). The only truly sustainable roll cleaning technology on the market.

AUTOMATION

The touch screen interface allows for information to be easily entered and stored for easy recall.

SAFETY

Safety is critical in manufacturing facilities. Sitexco has interlocks that assure the machine is shut down immediately if the safety guards are bypassed.

Sanilox™ Cleaning Systems

The Fastest and Most Efficient Anilox Roll Cleaning System on the Market

The Sanilox™ system is an innovative, environmentally-safe anilox roll cleaning system engineered by Eaglewood Technologies. Sanilox™ is easy to operate and is controlled by a simple touch screen interface.

More Details

Sanilox™ Advantages:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • One system cleans anilox rolls of any diameter
  • A color touch screen makes it easy to operate and track roll inventory data
  • Increases the life of your anilox rolls
  • One year warranty and 90 day money back guarantee

Sanilox™ Cleans:

  • Any ink, coating, varnish or glue chemistry
  • Journaled rolls
  • Sleeves
  • Gravure rolls
  • Glue rolls
  • Coating rolls
  • Adhesive rolls

DEEP CLEANING

The Sanilox™ system fractures the media to below six microns when applied at 35 psi. This means the media reaches the bottom of the cell, ensuring the entire cell gets cleaned (not just the wall of the cell).

DUST-FREE OPERATION

The Sanilox™ system uses a two-stage HEPA filtering system that delivers dust-free operation throughout the entire cleaning process. There is one collection point for easy disposal and zero mess.

AUTOMATION

The touch screen interface allows for information to be easily entered and stored for simple recall.

IN-PRESS AND OFF-PRESS OPTIONS

The Sanliox™ system can be quickly and easily transformed from an in-press to an off-press system. No other machine on the market today offers this flexibility.

How It Works

The Sanilox™ media delivery system fractures the media to below six microns when applied at 35 psi – this means the media reaches the bottom of the cell, ensuring the entire cell gets cleaned (not just the walls of the cell). Other media blasters, including plastic, use a lower pressure in order to “recycle” and re-use media. At a lower pressure, the cleaning time can take up to four times as long. “Recycling” units are less effective cleaning machines since the ink and anything else that is being removed gets recycled as well. This means the roller never truly gets cleaned and dried ink is driven into it over and over.
