Why wash plates when KleenPlate eliminates the need altogether?
KleenPlate® - the printing defect & plate wash eliminator is specifically engineered to maximize the productivity and quality of flexographic direct print on corrugated paperboard.
Productivity - By continuously wiping the image areas of the plates (cliches/stereos) clean, KleenPlate allows flexo printing operations to run without the typical need to constantly interrupt production to wash plates.
Quality - KleenPlate continuously removes a fine layer of ink, paper dust and debris from the plate image areas. This minimizes, if not eliminates - Hickies, caused by paper dust and debris - Color variation, dot gain and image growth, caused by ink plugging, drying and bridging.
The results are dramatic increases in productivity and quality, especially when printing jobs with high value graphics or large solid print areas.
