Enhanced Phoenix Series fuels growth for Sonic Solutions

Sonic Solutions LLC, an anilox roll cleaning equipment specialist serving the flexographic printing and packaging industries, has announced strong fourth quarter sales, fueled by increased market awareness in the company’s Phoenix Series line of ultrasonic anilox cleaning systems.

According to Sonic Solutions President Joe Walczak, the flexo industry is appreciating a slew of enhancements recently made to the Phoenix Series. “Sales are up almost 25% compared to previous quarters, and a lot of our new business is due to our enhanced Phoenix Series – and the industry has taken note. Labelexpo in September was a tremendous show for us, and since the show we’ve really kept up the momentum.”

Enhancements to Sonic Solutions’ Phoenix Series were made based upon customer feedback, and the anilox cleaning system has been refined and tailored to meet the evolving needs of the flexo industry. New features include a safer level of ultrasonics – 68 kHz – which allows smaller bubbles to get into the smaller cells of today’s higher line count anilox rolls. In addition, the Phoenix Series’ power generators have been modified to become external, interchangeable and easily replaceable. Safety has also been addressed through fixed thermostat settings and a low-level automatic shut-off feature.

The Phoenix Series is a fully customizable anilox cleaning system, now able to accommodate rolls of any size. “No anilox roll is too large for Sonic Solutions,” Walczak says. “From three inches to ten feet, from one roll to eight rolls at a time, we can customize a system to meet specific needs. And we’ll do it economically.”
