There are many variables to control in a press shop and therefore the printer has historically adjusted inks on press to achieve the density of colour required. One critical variable is the anilox roller and up until now, the true value of the anilox inventory has been unknown to the printer, making it impossible to know whether the roll volumes are matched and optimised for press set up.
The Troika SurfaceCAM simply and easily measures the volume of the anilox and archives the information to provide a viable and practical solution for the flexo printer.
Benefits of Low Screen Anilox Quality Control
Eliminate or replace anilox rolls that would require unnecessary ink adjustment
Ensure rolls are of similar volume capacity – between sets of rolls and across the width
Minimise variation across the width to improve print consistency
Ongoing monitoring of roll performance for easy maintenance
Effective planning and inventory management of rolls for refurbishment
Reduce ink and substrate waste through reduced ink matching and press set up times
