Web Cleaning

  • Are you using unforgiving UV inks for flexo printing?
  • Are you suffering from hickeys that are cause for reject?
  • Are you stopping your line too frequently because of particulate?
  • Are printing plates and anilox rollers getting contaminated?
  • Are your form-filling, blister packaging or pouch making machines at risk from inclusions?

We have the answer...

End of Reel and Edge Cleaning

End of reel

The majority of contamination on any wound reel is on the edges, where slitting dust will gather. On the bottom side contamination from storage (such as wooden pallets) will be visible, while the top surface will harbour airborne contamination.

Clean the edge of each roll of material with a hand roller before starting the line.

This simple air-driven rotary brush can be used to combat edge/slitting dust at the start of the line. Used with a contact cleaner it can dramatically increase the life of the Adhesive Roll by preventing the build up of "tramlines" from edge dust.

The Rotary Brush is available in widths up to 355mm, and any number can be used in parallel to cover wider requirements.
