Volume & Geometry

Offering a wide and varied range of geometry to equal current available standard geometry within the market place we also offer ALTernative cell structures for many different printing and coating applications.

Our range includes all standard platforms - 30, 45, 60 degree and 45 Tri-Helical pattern, we also have 60 degree Tri-Helical, Ani-Plus (first generation elongation), Ani-Plus II (second generation elongation), Ani-Flow, and Ani-Max structures available.

To compliment the above range we have our own unique ALTernative geometry in the NANO cell technology.  

We live in a world of colour and Corporate Brand control and integrity is of the utmost importance to help differentiate brands, products and ensure consistency to the consumer.

Here at Anilox Laser Technology we have the most stringent levels of volume control to ensure consistency, accuracy and repeatability on the products we produce.

Our method of volume control is unique. We use both optical and physical methods together to ensure accurate volume measurement. Our method involves a temperature controlled solution accurately dispensed onto the surface of the engraving. This is then distributed evenly and consistently over the surface of the Anilox, we then create an image from this and measure the ink movement and spread - this offers us the most accurate volume measurement.

Rainbow Cell Range

Alongside the standard range we have our Rainbow range of geometry


Ani-Flow
Developed for maximum flow for high viscosity gloss and UV applications in the Flexographic and Offset industries and Tactile applications.


Ani-Plus I/II
I. Developed for higher volume ink transfer in the water based and corrugated industries.
II. For high line count and volume in Water based, UV and SOLVENT applications. Specifically developed for use with HD and alternative plate technology.


Ani-Max
For UV anti-spitting applications and some tactile applications.


Ani-Pro
A Tri-Helical format developed for direct Flexo and Offset applications of dense links.
The RAINBOW range is developed for extended runs and reduced cleaning cycles.

All our Anilox rollers and Sleeves are engineered to help offer improved press speeds, reduction in doctor blade wear and improved durability.

All our Anilox Cell measurements are based on actual volume readings and print results.

To convert to BCM volume divide the cm3/m2 reading by 1.55.

Min(minimum) equivalent to 22% of cell opening

Opt(optimum) equivalent to 28% of cell opening
