With over 30 years of experience within the Ultrasonic Cleaning industry, Alphasonics have worked endlessly to ensure that relationships with our Friends and Partners remain as professional and long-lasting as possible. Alphasonics are grateful for the continuous support received from Friends and Partners over the years; below are some testimonials we have received about our machines and workmanship across all industries internationally.
“Here at ABG International, we have had an Alphasonics Melanie system in our facility since 2010 and have found it to be a very useful tool in keeping our Aniloxes clean. It is easy to use, safe and very effective. We have also recommended several of our customers to buy an Alphasonics system and as far as we’re aware, they are all very happy with their equipment.”
“Alphasonics have been a trusted supplier to Edale over many years and we have built a strong relationship with them. They have supplied us with their Alphasonics cleaning unit Megan 850-3350 and it has been fundamental to safely cleaning our Anilox rolls to ensure the best quality flexo print jobs. The Megan 850-3350 has been used by our customers worldwide and is also presented in our print showroom at our UK Headquarters in Whitely.”
James Boughton, Managing Director at Edale Ltd
“Mark Andy have used Alphasonics equipment in our facilities worldwide since 1995. Our operations in US, Europe, UK and China have all taken great benefit from the use of this technology over the years. We have been very pleased with our association with Alphasonics and expect this to continue.”
Executive Vice President, International Business at Mark Andy Inc.
“We originally got our Alphasonics Megan 1050-3350 system in 2014 and upgraded it in 2017. This piece of equipment works most days in our demo centre and has made a great difference to how we approach Anilox Cleaning. It works well and is very effective in keeping our Aniloxes clean. Someone also told us that this equipment was dangerous for our Aniloxes, but this has not been the case with our common Anilox Rollers that we found out on the market. We would highly recommend this machine.”
Alfonso Melesi at Demo Centre Manager, Omet srl
“We have had the Melanie 600-2250DF Duo in our lab since 2018. The Melanie 600-2250DF Duo has brought new life to the oldest and most abused aniloxes we have as well as keeping newer ones on the cusp of performance.
We have rollers that are in the area of 15 years old that look like they are next to brand new due to the performance of the Alphasonics cleaner. It is remarkably easy to use and maintain. With very little training our students love to use the unit.
It has drastically improved the consistency of our solid ink densities in spot colour and process colour reproduction. On top of how awesome the product performs, the team at Alphasonics USA has been friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive in the rare instance there has been an issue.”
Zachery Blackburn, Instructor Graphic Arts/Flexography at Central Piedmont Community College.
“From our point of view, the systems from Alphasonics have convinced us in their combination of cleaning effect and material protection. In collaborative projects, Alphasonics have shown that everything is possible; from standard systems to special applications.”
Cedric Tappe, Managing Director at Inometa

It is efficient, a straightforward system to use and is just what we need for a narrow web solution. As a team, Alphasonics are very responsive; I can send an email asking for power consumption and receive the answer within a few minutes.
Overall, I am very pleased with this Ultrasonic cleaner.”

“As a technical association, the DFTA gets many offers of equipment from suppliers for our own use and evaluation. This was the case with Alphasonics in 2010. In the time since then, we have used this machine regularly to clean our F&K sleeves and coating aniloxes from our Heidelberg when we carry out technical trials for our clients. We have found the system from Alphasonics to be safe and very effective in delivering 100% clean sleeves and rolls, which is vital for the work we do.” — Dr Martin Dreher – DFTA-TZ
“Managers and directors are encouraged to spend huge sums of money on expensive equipment with new levels of automation to improve competitiveness and profitability. Often overlooked can be the less interesting, yet equally important parts of the process. Maintaining anilox cell volume as part of standardising print will ensure that your printing system is predictable, right first-time day in day out. This can have a substantial impact on quality, waste reduction and efficiency. With modern anilox rolls yielding over 2 million cells per square inch, maintaining volume whilst at the same time caring for the roll has never been more important. I purchased my first Alphasonics system in 1994 and have never been disappointed. My latest system installed earlier this year has improved further with new levels of control for the finest of anilox rolls.” — Paul Larkin – Multi Labels
“We have found the cleaning of cylinders is much more effective by using the Alphasound system. Cleaning time is only half the time of manual cleaning. By cleaning with the system, we save a lot of money by not having to de-chrome and re-chrome cylinders that are only dirty.” — Frank Neumann – Amcor Flexibles Europe, Helio-Folien
“After evaluating several methods, Chesapeake have chosen Alphasonics Dual Frequency Alphasound across a number of sites. Careful management of our anilox inventory using Alphasonics means that we are confident that our rolls give the optimum results. The Alphasonics team are one with a global outlook. They listen and respond to our requirements, tailoring solutions bespoke to each sites’ needs.” — Marcus Reid – Essentra Packaging
“Anilox suppliers are regularly asked by converters to recommend the most efficient cleaning method, which does not cause damage at the same time even to finest cell walls. We believe that Alphasound DF represents one of the best and most versatile anilox cleaning methods, with the scope to develop along with future anilox technology.” — Inometa: Korhan Koese
“Keeping the anilox as clean as possible is essential for high quality flexo printing. We have been using an Alphasound system for several years for the cleaning of anilox sleeves with Soma GLOBE technology centre. We have found this device very effective and capable of delivering very clean anilox sleeves. We believe that the use of such a system provides great benefit to our customers.” — Martin Shejbal – Soma Engineering

The results were exceptional.” — Steve Cavey – Heidelberg (UK)
