A solution for
every printing process
No matter what printing process your company uses, our knowledgeable in-house team can offer the very best cleaning solution.
At Alphasonics, our innovation and technical expertise has led to the development of a comprehensive range of products that can be tailored to suit your cleaning requirements. Our range of cleaning systems have been specially designed to provide the highest and most consistent cleaning standards available, but they are also completely safe for regular use, even on the highest screen counts.
The main issue that print companies face is that the cleaning of the anilox rolls is not always up to standard; the manual cleaning creates inconsistencies across the rolls which may cause the ink to run during the printing process. Our devices remove microscopic contaminants such as ink residues and contamination to an incredibly low level, thus raising productivity, reducing downtime and as such, increasing profit.
Flexo printers can face problems cleaning anilox rolls to a consistent level, leading to a loss of process control. To overcome this issue, Alphasonics have developed ‘Alphasound’ and ‘Betasound’ technologies that have pioneered the safe and effective regular cleaning of aniloxes, no matter what the screen count. A 100% clean anilox, coupled with the use of a volume measurement device delivers the ultimate in anilox control, with all the production and financial benefits this brings.
As Flexo settles into the 21st century, it is becoming more apparent that simply ‘cleaning’ the anilox is no longer good enough. Flexo’s new paradigm is ‘Anilox Control’ - ensuring the roll is used in such a way to deliver the very best results through stringent care, maintenance and management.
Consistently rendering the roll 100% clean will give a baseline to enable the delivery of six tangible, cost saving and production-based benefits:
- No requirement to over-pigmentation inks
- Faster and more consistent make-ready times
- Greatly reduced waste
- Higher and more consistent print quality
- Improved production run hours
- Easier and more accurate anilox inventory management
The mantra is clear and simple;
Control the anilox, control the profit.
“HP own an Alphasonics Melanie 600-2250 DF/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.”

Our Alphasound cleaning systems provide an ideal way to keep gravure cylinders in absolutely pristine condition between print runs and up to 12 cylinders can now be cleaned simultaneously.
Controlling the coating weight in offset is important, not only for the quality of the printed job, but also for cost benefit. Where an anilox roll is used to deliver the varnish or coating, it is good practice and important that the roll is maintained as far as possible at full volume. Our advanced ultrasonic technology will enable the roll to be controlled in the same way as in Flexo.
