Our fully automatic Plate Washers are designed to wash printing plates gently and leave them 100% clean and dry, ready for immediate use.
Manual washing can damage plates, is time-consuming and often viewed as a problem area for health and safety standards. Now you can let operators do more profitable things, like focusing on the printing process and press make-ready functions.
All Flexo Wash plate washers are able to wash all types of inks and are designed for environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. The machines are made of steel and other highly resistant material to ensure a long lifetime and low degree of maintenance.
The PW 45 and PW 130 models are for the horizontal cleaning of plates. The machines are controlled by a microprocessor with a user-friendly touch screen to adjust the wash programs. After the print job, all plates are put on a conveyor belt, which automatically takes them through the entire wash process.
Two types of rinsing systems are available: open and closed circuit. Plates are drawn into the plate wash machine where the soft, moving brushes and cleaning solution delivers an efficient, yet gentle washing of the plates. The rinse water removes the final ink and solution residues and then warm air leaves the plates 100% dry and ready for immediate use.
