Nanovis has introduced the Nanocleaner NWC for cleaning of flexo label press parts using a cleaning cabinet and a non-volatile cleaning agent. Cleaning takes place in a closed loop under vacuum and is fully automatic. Due to minimal emissions, it can be installed directly in the production area next to the presses.
