The Meridian has improved print quality and color matching

GREEN BAY, Wis. — January 17, 2019 — Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of Barry-Wehmiller, is pleased to announce that Poly Print a family-owned and operated flexographic printing business located in Tucson, Arizona, has successfully  installed a Meridian laser anilox cleaner.

“I saw the benefits and results firsthand of the Meridian at a previous employer,” commented John Cowens, Printing Department Manager at Poly Print. “So, I knew that the Meridian would be a valuable asset and the best option for Poly Print. The Meridian allows the anilox to perform at correct volumes - thus saving time, ink and waste.”

The Meridian laser anilox cleaner provides printers and converters a solution for one-pass cleaning that achieves like-new surface conditions at unprecedented speeds, many times increasing efficiency of 300% or more. The Meridian does not require any chemicals, sodium bicarbonate or polymer beads, water, or detergents – making it a sustainable cleaning technology that has a very low environmental impact.

“One of the main reasons I like the Meridian is because it’s engineered, manufactured and serviced in the United States,” said Cowens. “We also liked the fact that is backed by PCMC’s superior customer service and support.”

“We had the opportunity to service a new customer based on first-hand experience with the Meridian,” says Rich Stratz, Strategic Accounts Manager. “That speaks volumes about the Meridian’s value and performance. We are very excited to add a company like Poly Print to our list of satisfied customers.”
