has become critical; even the slightest variation can result
in poor, inconsistent print quality and costly rejections.
Clean anilox rolls deliver more consistent color densities,
resulting in better quality print jobs, less press downtime
and optimal productivity. Improper anilox care will quickly
diminish the value of the anilox roll and require premature
The MicroClean™ system
an off-press, enclosed anilox roll cleaning system which
uses specially designed plastic pellets to gently remove
dried inks and coatings. Fine polymer beads are applied under
air pressure to pick the dried matter from the anilox engraving,
restoring cells to their original volume. Unlike other cleaning
media and chemicals, the
will not damage anilox rolls when used under recommended circumstances.
This method has been shown to do a thorough job of cleaning both ceramic and chrome rolls
with high line counts repeatedly without damage to the cells.

lowest per-roll cost cleaning method of any on the market
In addition to its economic and "green" benefits, MicroClean™ is
also a safer alternative to other anilox cleaning methods.
The enclosed system contains built-in safety controls and
generates no dust or harsh chemicals which could compromise
