Fully automatic printing plate cleaning machines

PlateClean is a fully automatic printing plate cleaning machine, which can wash solvent- and/or water-washable, analogue and/or digital flexographic plates. The quick and gentle process cleans all ink types without wear, or any damage to the plate.

The plate is simply placed on the infeed section of the machine, where a pair of dragging rollers pull the plate into the machine. It automatically goes through the unit, while the three-step cleaning process is completed. As a first step, pre-heated cleaning liquid is sprayed over the plate while a very soft brush cleans the plate surface. As the next step, rinse water is sprayed over the plate while another very soft brush cleans the plate surface again. Both the cleaning liquid and the rinse water are collected in separate tanks for re-use. After that, a pair of sponge rollers take most of the moisture from the top and bottom surfaces of the plate. At the end of the process, warm air dries the plates before it comes out of the machine. The result is 100% clean and dry plates, ready to print or store.

The applied cleaning process is very gentle to the aniloxes, so the machine is safely useable, meaning that your aniloxes can be cleaned as often as needed. PlateClean has been especially developed to clean plates quickly, effectively, without any wear and tear and without leaving any remaining ink on the plate.

2. Rinsing – rinse water is sprayed over the plate when another very soft brush cleans the plate surface again
3. Drying – sponge rollers take most of the moisture from the top and bottom surfaces of the plate and warm air dries the plates
The result is clean and dry plate, ready to print or store.
