Advanced Laser Engravings for Ultimate Anilox Roller Performance

UltraCell engraving technology takes conventional laser engraved anilox roller solutions to the next level. The innovative cell geometries are engraved slower to create a melted / fused inner cell wall that requires no additional porosity masking sealants to be added to the coating – ensuring pure ceramic cells for optimum transfer. This controlled engraving process allows a more efficient ink / coating transfer, easier roll cleaning, and ultra resistance to anilox corrosion and scoring. With UltraCell’s super-dense, low-porosity, non-wetting ceramic coating, you can expect longer roll life, consistent cell volume and improved print and press performance overall. Take full advantage of your conventional engravings with this advanced anilox roller solution from Apex International.

UltraCell’s advanced laser engraving technology offers a variety of competitive advantages:

Improve Transfer Quality

With a precision increase in cell width and decrease in cell depth coupled with its high-density, low-porosity ceramic coating, UltraCell increases ink release efficiency, maximizing ink/coating mileage and improving quality.

Achieve Ultimate Profitability

Printers and converters can reduce waste and improve their bottom line by using less ink, increasing press speed, and decreasing downtime for maintenance, cleaning, and troubleshooting.

Cell Engraving Precision & Quality Control

UltraCell anilox rollers and sleeves are available in a wide range of geometries that utilize Apex’s multi-phase laser engraving process. All engravings maintain cell volume precision and uniformity and are verified through rigorous laser interferometric cell-volume verification during Apex’s extensive quality control process.

Easier Maintenance & Extended Anilox Roller Life

With a shallower profile and stronger cell walls, UltraCell anilox rollers are easier to clean and maintain. The thick impermeable protective layer creates a score and corrosion resistant barrier extending roll life tremendously.
