Apex International will launch an anilox solution to resolve UV ink spitting. Apex uses a constant beam laser to create its patented GTT Open Slalom Ink Channel anilox geometry that lets the ink flow uniformly and calmly onto the plate. This not only prevents pin-holing, mottling, haloing or dot gain to occur in print, but also makes GTT a guaranteed anilox solution against ink spitting. In addition, Apex will showcase “Smart Aniloxes,” where its rolls will be able to automatically share status information with intelligent systems. That will allow operators to have better control over cleaning cycles and more control over when to perform maintenance. Smart Aniloxes will thus enable further improvement of process control, up time and productivity.
