Auditing and Care

Draychem provides a complete service for anilox volume, wear and damage auditing. At Draychem we use our own unique traffic light system. By using the CellVol Volume Kit, we can take the volume of your anilox roll in cm3/m2. Within our kit, we have a 400x microscope. This microscope allows us to take an image of the anilox cells and determine whether or not the cells are; blocked, worn or damaged.

Once the anilox audit is completed, Draychem can then produce a detail anilox report for your own records. Along with the report, your Draychem technician will advise a suitable course of action, in respect of maintenance of the roll. Regular auditing will be reported, using our traffic light system, allowing us to monitor the performance and cleanliness of your anilox roll.

Things to remember to maintain optimum cell volumes

  • Wash the units out regularly using Draychem’s range of cleaning solutions.
  • Don’t allow the rubber roll or blades to be left in contact with the anilox roll when stopped.
  • Never leave the anilox roll inked up after printing and wash out as soon as possible.
  • Regular Anilox auditing to monitor the condition of the rolls.
