Anilox Rolls and Sleeves

Anilox Rolls and Sleeves

Let the presses roll

When it comes to our anilox rolls, we focus on more than just the performance and durability of the coating. We take extensive measures to ensure that our rolls are mechanically sound and our engravings are exact.

We manufacture each of our anilox rolls to meet the OEM requirements for your press and your unique specifications. We coat each one with our exclusive ceramic coating made of 99%-pure chrome oxide for optimal porosity, bond strength and density. One of the hardest coatings in the industry, our ceramic coating maintains an average hardness of 1300 Vickers and can be ground and polished to maximize surface integrity and service life of your roll.

Finally, we laser engrave our anilox rolls to produce the proper cell volume and structure essential for accurate color reproduction and consistent ink release. Our microscopic pattern engravings are specific to your print application and can range from eight lines per inch to high-resolution patterns of 1300 lines per inch. 

Roll up your sleeves

We also manufacture a line of anilox sleeves that are lightweight, easy-to-handle and require less storage space than those sold by our competitors. Each of our sleeves is engineered with air cushion technology to provide optimal shock absorption and impact resistance, ultimately improving your press performance. Our sleeves protect the side faces of your roll, reducing inner-layer damage and delivering better corrosion protection.

Our anilox sleeves can also improve print quality by offering a better compromise between line screen and volume choices, higher line screen count availability, improved image contrast and better ink metering control.

We offer anilox sleeves in a variety of custom sizes and can manufacture them with up to 67” in printing width.

Currently, our anilox sleeves are available through the following plant locations:  

  • Charlotte, North Carolina

  • Pinhais, Brazil

  • St. Etienne, France

  • Ratingen, Germany

  • Novara, Italy

  • Changzhou, China
