Sandon Global installs fifth laser

June 6, 2014

The investment reflects the company’s need to increase capacity and meet growing customer demand for its products.

Sandon Global has announced the installation of its fifth thermal fiber optic laser supplied by ALE. The investment reflects the company’s need to increase capacity and meet growing customer demand for its products. The system uses new materials and technologies in beam delivery optics that refine production and optimize manufacture. The technology enables consistency and subsequent quality of anilox engravings at higher screen counts.

“We have been working in partnership with ALE on new concepts in laser technology to meet our high demands for some time,” says Managing Director John Millington. “The new laser will give us the ability to carry out some exciting new product developments. Sandon Global is determined to constantly evolve engraving concepts through on-going experimentation. The fifth laser is crucial in driving these latest developments by utilizing its technological advancements and also increasing our capacity so that we can dedicate increasing time to research and development. The new laser will be capable of producing greater latitudes of engravings aiming to increase line counts whilst maintaining greater volume capability than previously available.”

A sixth thermal fiber optic laser is also on order for commissioning in August 2014.

Millington concludes, “The new laser represents a major investment for the company and demonstrates our continued investment program at a time when the global economy is in recovery. We are very confident in the future of the flexographic printing industry and will continue to support its success and progress."
