Parkside boosts production quality with Troika Anicam
Parkside Flexibles has invested in Troika AniCam, a 3D digital scanning microscope, along with AMS software to measure its flexographic plates and anilox rolls.
Mark Benson, print and lamination specialist at Parkside, stated: ‘Parkside has a continuous programme of investment underway. We are committed to employing the latest technologies within the business to assure our customers of best in class print performance.’
The AniCam and AMS software have been installed in a dedicated pre-press area on the shop floor.
Mark added, ‘What we wanted to ensure was ease of use and clear integration into our pre-press process. This allows an anilox to be delivered to the pre-press area quickly, be cleaned and checked using the AniCam, and returned for use on press within eight minutes.’
The company has also invested in a Sandon SoftClean Duo Ultrasonic Anilox cleaner. Operating alongside the Troika solution, the new cleaning programme has conservatively released 50 hours of additional production capacity per month and saved in excess of one million linear metres of material per annum in reduced set up times.
