Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC; Green Bay, Wisconsin), part of Barry-Wehmiller, showcases its Meridian laser anilox cleaner at Labelexpo Americas 2018 from 25-27 September in Rosemont, Illinois. The Meridian cleans anilox cells without damaging them by using a powerful laser to vaporise deposited particles inside of the cells. The Meridian has been named a finalist for the Award for Innovation, one of the key categories of the Label Industry Global Awards 2018.

With its patent-pending laser technology, the Meridian is reported to deeply clean chrome and ceramic rolls of any line screen without causing surface wear, achieving like-new surface conditions at high speeds, many times increasing efficiency by 300% or more. Backed by PCMC’s customer service and support, the Meridian provides printers and converters with an advanced one-pass cleaning solution.

“We’re very excited to welcome people into our booth to experience the innovative Meridian firsthand,” said Rodney Pennings, Printing, Coating and Laminating sales director. “I think they’ll be impressed by its technology, speed and effectiveness.”
