How does it work?

The FW Anilox Cleaners work with environmentally friendly cleaning liquid, which is specially made for deep cleaning of aniloxes used with all types of ink.
The water from the high-pressure rinse is automatically led directly to the drain, to a tank for re-use or to one of our water treatment units. 

washing aniloxes


The anilox rotates while heated liquid is sprayed onto the surface and enables easy removal of the ink from the anilox cells.

Average washing time is 5-20 minutes.



draining aniloxes


After the washing cycle the liquid is drained back to the wash tank.

Drain time is 2-3 minutes.


rinsing aniloxes


High pressure adjustable water nozzles complete the cleaning process and removes any remaining ink particles and cleaning liquid.

Rinse cycle is approx. 2-3 minutes.

drying aniloxes


High pressure air drying completes the cleaning process leaving the anilox ready for immediate use or storage.

Duration is 1-3 minutes, depending on roll length.
