New Anilox inker with sleeves made entirely in aluminum (Patent n.001429383) Zenit S.p.A., a leading company in the construction of rolls for printing machines, for the processing of paper and plastic films, for the treatment of sheet metal and for the industrial sludge treatment, and a point of reference for manufacturers of printing and converting machines, presents a new anilox inker with aluminum sleeves (Patent n ° 0001429383).
In an increasingly demanding and competitive market, Zenit S.p.A. is equipped with a programmed system for checking the working process and company quality which guarantees a high-level product at a low cost, capable of satisfying the most different needs.
Thanks to the Ownership, open to new technologies and continuous innovation, Zenit S.p.A. aims to develop high-end products. The reasons which led the company to choose to make shafts that have the possibility of mounting sleeves entirely in aluminum, compared to the standard Anilox Sleeves (Inkers), are substantially for a reduction in the costs of purchasing and replacing sleeves, and an increase in precision, given the stiffness of a sleeve composed solely of a material such as aluminum, a reduction in environmental impact and disposal costs, avoiding the use of composite polymeric materials.
Already in the design phase, Zenit S.p.A. has set itself the constraint of using the same sleeve release method, using compressed air without removing the shaft from the machine, in such a way as to allow the user companies to avoid updates or changes later.
This project developed by Antonino Gasparini (Partner and Industrial Director) and Marco Solari (Mechanical Engineer and Designer), after tests and optimizations, has led to an excellent result, both in terms of cost and from the point of view of practical assembly and sleeve disassembly.
"This new type of Anilox inker, Patent n ° 0001429383, is the result of the skills and experience of Zenit S.p.A., together with advanced mechanical and IT support technologies, such as 5-axis machines and CAD / CAM software.
In addition to this important novelty, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary with many innovations, new machinery and new software, thanking all customers, suppliers and collaborators who have made it possible to achieve this coveted goal, concludes Marco Solari.
