Global anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America will present several of its products at Booth 401 during Labelexpo Americas and will discuss how available programs, services and anilox technology can enhance print repeatability and improve profitability.
One of the systems on display will be Harper’s award-winning patented QD ink proofing and flatbed printing system, which uses flexographic and gravure processes. This system has become the color-matching proofer of choice by many leading ink manufacturers and is able to be configured at four different speed units. The maximum travel speed is 150FPM (45MPM), and travel distance can be adjusted anywhere from 12 to 33 inches in one-inch increments. It is also available in either a 2.75-inch or 5-inch proofer width.
Representatives will also be on hand to address questions regarding cleaning supplies for effective care and maintenance of their anilox inventory, including the Harper Performance Wash, which is a fast-acting, low foam, highly alkaline-based anilox roll cleaner.
Performance Wash is effective at removing water-based, UV and solvent inks and can penetrate through multiple layers of ink. In addition, it is ready to use at room temperature or can be heated up to 100°F. This versatile cleaning solution can be used in automatic roll cleaning machines with rinse cycles or ultrasonic tanks. It is a concentrated solution, but it can be diluted with tap water to meet the needs of different cleaning methods, types of ink and roll conditions.
