Anilox Laser Technology (ALT) installs Fiber Optic Ultra laser system

Anilox Laser Technology (ALT), new supplier of anilox rollers and sleeves, has installed a Fiber Optic Ultra laser system at its 3600 sq ft premises in Manchester, UK. The new system is capable of engraving in excess of 2000 lpi and 4700mm face length.

A choice of cell engravings available includes industry standards of 30, 45 and 60 degrees as well as tri-helical. In addition, the new Rainbow cell range has been developed for extended print runs and reduced cleaning cycles.

A volume and cell measurement system, including an AniCam 3D scanning microscope, has been set up using the latest Tri-Plex II plasma ceramic coating system – which guarantees porosity of less than one percent and hardness in excess of 1600 Vickers – to ensure maximum repeatability. Rollers can be constructed in steel, aluminum or stainless steel with a lightweight tube construction for easier handling.

Formed in 2011, the company ‘aims to supply a full technical service and lead the way in anilox cell innovation’. Directors Anthony Jewell and Chris Bryant have over 50 years of combined experience in the flexographic printing and coating industry.

Managing director Anthony Jewell said: ‘From our previous experience we feel that the industry requires an anilox company that can deliver its promises on quality and service. This is something we are committed to achieving.’
