The anilox rollers we supply are manufactured using industrial plasma flame-spraying, laser engraving geometry and digital measurement technology giving our customer a precise and durable product at competitive price.
Anilox rollers for various application
60 Degree HEX
Anilox roller cell shapes
A hard cylinder that’s usually constructed from a steel or aluminium core and then coated with an industrial ceramic coating before it is engraved. Various cell shapes can be engraved such as hexagon, quadrangle, lime, cobra pattern, art pattern etc. to meet the task requirements of modern day print quality challenges. • Digital laser engraving for rotogravure. • Flexographic, lithography, gravure printing, UV coating • Labels, envelopes, paper forms, handbags, corrugated boxes • Coated & wood-patterned paper products, glazing, wallpapers • Optical-, PE-, release-, and lithium battery diaphragm film, aluminium foil APPLICATION MANUFACTURING PROCESS Each anilox roller goes through 8 highly precise manufacturing processes in order to meet all relevant roller standards and deliver high quality anilox rollers for high quality print. • Base roller processing – all bases are made from quality hollow seamless tubes. • Sandblasting treatment – ensures a good key on surface for the first alloy. • Nickel-chromium alloy coating – high bond surface with good metal affinity. • Chromium oxide ceramic layer – working layer for anilox rollers is prepared using a plasma spraying system to reach optimal hardness of approximately 1300-1450 HV. • Carborundum grinding – silicone carbide stone is used to grind the ceramic surface. • Carborundum polishing – micro-polishing with silicone carbide prepares the ceramic surface for engraving. • Laser engraving – directly applied to the ceramic layer to allow for precise size and etch depth of each cell. • Polishing and cleaning – to ensure removal of any “rough” edges and cell wall abnormalities. We use the most advanced ALE optical laser engraving machines to ensure cell depth smoothness and consistency for even ink application and delivery across the entire roller face.
