Alphasonics' 'Safe with Sound’ anilox cleaning trial now online

July 17, 2014

The anilox cleaning company staged a five day trial to address concerns linking roll damage and ultrasonic technology.

The recent ‘Safe with Sound’ anilox cleaning trial from Alphasonics is now online and ready to view. Set up in response to address concerns linking anilox roll damage and ultrasonic technology, the five-day trial streamed live to a combined audience of 607 viewers. Over the course of the trial, three brand new anilox rolls and three ex-production rolls were cleaned nonstop using Alphasonics ultrasonic technology.

Alphasonics has now produced a shortened version of the trial using footage direct from the live stream in order to show the trial to those who were unable to view at the time. To Alphasonics, the footage is conclusive proof of the safety and effectiveness of its equipment available to prospective customers as and when they need it, allowing them to make an informed choice.

For the full length of time, which came in at well over the original target of 1300 cycles, the trial was continuously captured around the clock by four CCTV cameras and was interspersed with comment and discussion by Alphasonics Marketing Manager Christopher Jones in three separate live interludes. Results were revealed as they happened during a full demonstration of the AniCAm while Jones conducted discussions and answered questions fielded online by the audience.

Alphasonics says the trial confirmed that zero roll damage had occurred and paid testament to the cleanliness of the aniloxes due to their cleaning in the Megan unit from the Alphasonics range. “The aniloxes used in the trial show an excellent level of cleanliness and show absolutely no signs of damage despite the extensive cleaning cycle," Jones said.

The trial, along with results and the Q and A sessions carried out during the show, are now available on YouTube:
