Pamarco invests in two new lasers for its ceramic anilox business and major plasma upgrades

As the leading anilox roll manufacturer in an expanding packaging industry, Pamarco is dedicated to exceptional service, consistency, and precision. To uphold this commitment and enable further development of its account base and flourishing clientele, the company has invested in two new lasers for its ceramic anilox business and major plasma upgrades. These acquisitions are the latest technology in hardware and software, strengthening Pamarco’s global presence.

The first laser to be installed is a 3.5 meter ALE in Pamarco’s La Palma location, in April of 2018. The second will be installed in May 2018, a 5.5 meter ALE laser in the company’s Warrington, U.K., facility. In addition to the lasers, the most recent plasma installation, a fourth Sinplex at Pamarco’s Atlanta operation, company-wide plasma improvements are officially complete; each plant is now equipped with Triplex and Sinplex systems.

The additional laser engraving capacity and plasma updates, complemented by significant investments in upstream technologies, allows Pamarco to be even more responsive to the needs of the market. Meeting ever-increasing graphic demands at increased press speeds for a growing client base means the company is positioned to remain the leader in anilox technology. Flexo Division President, John Burgess, stated, “We continue to demonstrate our commitment to the packaging industry with investments. Not just in capital, but investments in our people and in the education of the market - these will provide a return for generations to come.”
