Zecher Shares Labelexpo Europe Plans

PADERBORN, GERMANY | Zecher, an international manufacturer of chrome and ceramic anilox rollers, will be showing its wares at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe 2017, September 25–28, at the Brussels Expo in Brussels, Belgium. 

Anais Rath, head of marketing at Zecher, sees Labelexpo as one of the most important trade fairs in the company’s event calendar: “Label printing is a rising market segment for us, in particular because packaging is increasingly being used as advertising space and thus high quality printing is required. We are responding to the increase in the number of customers this year with a larger exhibition stand and are already looking forward to beating our number of visitors from the last Labelexpo.”

In addition to SteppedHex engraving, company says it will be offering new opportunities for improved print performance and responding to the increased customer requirements, as well as offering information on a new laser cleaning service.

According to the company, cost-saving laser cleaning eliminates all residues, while conventional procedures remove only part of the accumulated residues. The LaserEcoClean system is said to gently eliminate all ink and varnish residues.

Jörg Rohde, head of applications technology at Zecher, says, “After the cleaning process, the pick-up volume of the anilox roller can once again be used to its full extent, and printers benefit from the same uniform inking performance as before.”

As a relatively low-power laser beam is used, the temperature of the ceramic surface is well below the material's melting point, which reportedly prevents any damages to the outside of the anilox roller.
