Vianord Engineering highlighting water-washable plate processing


The EVO Wave plate processing solution is engineered to enhance sustainability advantages offered by water washable plates.

The new EVO Wave plate processing solution, developed by Vianord Engineering in Carros, France, is designed to meet the highest quality and reliability requirements of the most demanding customers. It is engineered to enhance the sustainability advantages offered by water washable plates while safeguarding quality washout and superior screening.

Riccardo de Caria, strategy advisor at Vianord, has introduced the new line of water-washable platemaking solutions at Labelexpo Europe.

The new EVO Wave offers:
• Trivial equipment footprint when compared to conventional processing equipment
• Fast high-quality washout, perfected by a new pre-drying feature
• Unanticipated water management system, which doesn’t require water replacement and only needs to refill the part that naturally evaporates at its working temperature; positioning this processor as an environmentally sound solution that is commercially available
• Stimulating economic performance

“The prepress industry has not yet seen anything like this," says de Caria. "Our solution is very compact and powerful in its simplicity; users can control and monitor any part of the system in real time as all the hosted applications, which are tightly and fundamentally unified, are controlled by a responsive PLC platform.”

According to Vianord, de Caria is most notably known for his innovation and design work on solvent platemaking lines. He currently foresees massive growth in this market.
