‘Harper recognize Alphasonics and are happy to consider them as a partner and friend’
Lee Harper. CEO at Harper Global Graphics Inc.
“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
“I have known and worked with Alphasonics for many years, so it was a no brainer that we should have their kit in our new US showroom. The equipment is of a very high specification, safe, effective and compact. Also in the US, we are supported by Chris Jones who is very helpful.”
Dilip Shah Sr.
Technical & Sales Support Manager at MPS Systems North America Inc.
‘In our Competence Center at Bobst Firenze, we use an Alphasonics Megan system to clean our aniloxes when conducting press acceptance tests and for our general use. We have found the Alphasonics Megan system very effective and easy to use. It gives great results every time’.
Competence Center Manager
“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
“Cleanliness – especially for Anilox Rollers – is of paramount importance in quality Flexo printing – and that’s where Alphasonics come in on top.”
Sales & Marketing Director at Nilpeter A/S
“Keeping the Anilox as clean as possible is essential for high quality Flexo printing. At Soma Globe Technology Centre, we have been using an Alphasound system for several years for the cleaning of Anilox Rollers. We have found this device to be 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."
“TLS Anilox GmbH clean customers Aniloxes with Alphasonics cleaning machines. They are fast, easy to handle and save the Anilox and its ceramic surface even with high screen count engravings. Our customers send us their Aniloxes for cleaning that are contaminated and varnish bases. The ultrasonic cleaning is very powerful, and we receive deep cleaning results in a short time.”
Andreas Willeke, CEO at TLS Anilox GmbH
“We’ve seen Alphasonics systems in countless print houses and know the company well. Through analysis of huge numbers of aniloxes where different cleaning methods are used, we can say that Alphasonics are fulfilling their statements and are a safe and a highly effective method of anilox cleaning.”
Jon Jordan - Troika Systems
What is the best part about using this device?
The easy results! The first time we used this machine was to clean one of our toughest anilox rolls that we use for researching coatings. After a 15 minute cycle the anilox had a visibly different cleanliness to it. After seeing this result, we were eager to clean the rest of our rolls. This was the same result with every one of our anilox rolls!
What process differences have we implemented since?
As we have no automatic washout systems on our press everything is done by hand per station. Getting a thorough cleaning with every use was very difficult. Aside from hand cleaning, we used to do full ultrasonic washing once every 3 months, because we would need to set time aside to make sure we did not submerge the anilox rolls for too long and the cycles of the old machine took too long. Being a research facility, we really needed to be able to do this more frequently, use less time and not have to worry if the roll sat in the cleaner too long. With the Melanie II we can now clean our rolls as part of our station clean up process. We actually can clean up each station faster and have an ultrasonically cleaned roll after every use. This was a perfect solution for us considering our research needs.
What were the unexpected benefits from using the Melanie II?
Faster clean ups and employee engagement in cleaning. We saw positive changes in the way our employees treated the anilox rolls and saw our employees create an anilox inventory and usage document. Once we got the Melanie II, they were cleaning every anilox they could find!

“HP own an Alphasonics Melanie600-2250DF/2 Anilox Cleaner SOLO. This is the second system we have received. 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.”

Zecher the technology of two Alphasonics cleaning systems, which fulfils the customer needs and their expectations.

VP Marketing, Xeikon Digital Solutions
We work collaboratively with our clients, listening to their needs, to ensure that our bespoke machines suit their requirements.
“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 – Hamilton Adhesive Labels
We chose Alphasonics Anilox Cleaning Systems. We did the due diligence and we took a look at some data & facts out there, spoke to our peers, and, in addition to Reliability and Technical Excellence, one of the things that really differentiated Alphasonics from everybody else was the dedication of customer service. Semliki Royal Group of Companies is a customer-oriented operation, so we would expect that from our vendors as well, and consequently we’ve developed a significant partnership with Alphasonics. We utilize the heavy duty Melanie Extra Anilox Cleaner DUO Series, with Active Cavitation, designed to clean and rinse both narrow and wide anilox rolls up to 60Kg maximum weight. We’ve found out that this is a very, very definitive unit, fits very well with our operations, and we’ve not faced any issues and no downtime. Alphasonics service technicians have been A1, any concern or any need that we have, all we’ve had to do is pick up the phone and they will respond to those needs as quickly as possible. We expect that our equipment work as impeccably well as our team members within the facility and Alphasonics fits that bill 100%.” — Doris Mwesigire-Mutabazi
“Since the installation of the Alphasonics system, the cleaning of the Blanket Wash units has been greatly enhanced. As we have 32 units, the system is used on a daily basis and saves on the old manual scrubbing and cleaning of the units." — Mike Day – Eclipse Colour Print
