Why Laserlox™ Cleaning Systems?

Deep Cleaning
By using a 20-watt laser, the beam is strong enough to ablate any ink chemistry without touching the ceramic or chrome coating on your anilox rolls. Micro beams vaporize the ink or coating allowing the light to reach all the way down inside even the highest of line counts. No matter the engraving specification, Laserlox™ has the ability.

Sustainability
The most advanced laser anilox roll cleaning system in the world does not require any chemicals, media, water, or waste disposal of any kind; truly making this system the most sustainable cleaning solution available. Laserlox™ uses only 4 kw of power per hour, less than your household dishwasher.

Automation
The touch screen panel allows information to be easily entered into the machine. The laser automatically focuses allowing rolls of various diameters to be cleaned simultaneously, without any adjustments by an operator. When cleaning multiple rolls during the same cleaning cycle, the laser head will quickly move over the journals and bearings decreasing overall cleaning time and energy. Roll parameters are saved for easy recall to cut down on setup time and increase uptime.

Safety
Safety is of the upmost importance in manufacturing facilities and especially when dealing with lasers. Laserlox™ Flexi is a Class 4 laser but since the beam is contained within an enclosure with interlocks, it is classified by the FDA as a Class 1 laser. These interlocks assure that any bypassing of the safety guards cause the laser to immediately shut down preventing any issues. Class 1 definition: inherently safe; no possibility of eye damage. This is due to an enclosure preventing user access to the laser beam during normal operation, such as in CD players or laser printers.
