Anilox Rollers

Ceramic Anilox Roller

Zecher ceramic anilox rollers and sleeves are characterized by their precision, durability and reliability. Laser-engraved rollers and sleeves are at the heart of the flexo printng process and our brand has become the product of choice for many of the worlds’ leading press manufacturers.

Chrome Anilox Roller

The chrome roller corresponds to the original design of the anilox and consists of a steel or stainless steel roller base and mainly used in coatng. Compared to a ceramic roller, the surface is smoother and has beter release for this applicaton. As copper is very soft, the engraving is protected against abrasive wear (doctor blade) by chrome-platng the surface.

Anilox Roller Accessories

Wrap your printng rollers in a safe place: With Zecher’s protectve mats and covers, you protect your anilox rollers against external influences.

Protect your anilox sleeves from avoidable damage with sleeve cleaning adapters.

Anilox Roller Inspection

Regular anilox roller inspectons are essental to achieve optmum long-term printng results. Only through regular anilox roller testng and conditon analysis can you make your processes as economical as possible. With our offers for roller analysis, you get an overview and know exactly what your printng rollers are currently doing. We use modern measuring methods to assess the conditon of your anilox rollers for optmum print results.

Corrosion Protection

Like roller coating, surface finishings protect your anilox rollers from external effects. Zecher equip corrosion-risk sections of the anilox rollers using a 2-component coating system with a defined layering thickness that is highly resistant to chemicals and abrasions.

The Expoxy Resin Hardener System is a temperature and chemical-resistant surface finishing that will give your anilox rollers a high level of protection against corrosion and abrasion on diverse substrates, even in aggressive environments. Zecher provide further surface finishings for your anilox rollers such as hard chrome Plating and I.T.S® roller finishing.
