Meridian laser anilox cleaner huge hit at Labelexpo Americas 2018

Oct 02, 2018

PCMC showcased its Meridian laser anilox cleaner at Labelexpo Americas 2018 (Sept. 25 to 27, 2018), in Rosemont, Illinois. Live demonstrations of the Meridian, which cleans anilox cells without damaging them by using a powerful laser to vaporize deposited particles inside of the cells, were held throughout the duration of the show.

With its patent-pending laser technology, the Meridian deeply cleans chrome and ceramic rolls of any line screen without causing surface wear, achieving like-new surface conditions at unprecedented speeds, many times increasing efficiency by 300 percent or more. Backed by PCMC’s superior customer service and support, the Meridian provides printers and converters with an advanced one-pass cleaning solution.

The Meridian was also named a finalist for the Innovation Award, one of the key categories of the Label Industry Global Awards 2018.

“It was great welcoming people into our booth to experience the innovative Meridian firsthand,” said Rodney Pennings, Printing, Coating and Laminating Sales Director. “I think attendees were impressed by its technology, speed and effectiveness. It was a great opportunity to give live demonstrations of the best laser available on the market today."
