Merasia presents solution to digital printing cleaning issues at Labelexpo India

Merasia, the master distributor of Teknek’s market-leading contact cleaning equipment in South East Asia, will be showing a range of innovative solutions  to clean before digital printing at Labelexpo India.

There has been a huge increase in the use of digital printing in recent years especially in Asia, as the technology has evolved to offer high quality, low volume print on a variety of materials from labels and film to packaging and wallpapers.   Digital printing equipment is particularly vulnerable to contamination as Richard Meredith, director of Merasia explains: “The presence of dust or other contaminants can potentially scratch, block or damage the print head.  When you consider that a new print head can cost up to four figures it makes it easy to calculate the short return on investment for a Teknek cleaner.”

He added: “The solution is to ensure the web is 100% free of contamination.  Teknek’s high performance cleaning rollers make direct contact with the substrate gently lifting particles down to one micron.  When the web is cleaned it eliminates the possibility of particles damaging the print head.  We currently work with leading digital printer manufacturers who integrate a Teknek cleaner into their press as a standard option.”
