Harper Offers Free Anilox Troubleshooting Guide

CHARLOTTE, NC | Harper GraphicSolutions, the technical service arm of global anilox supplier Harper Corp. of America, has produced an illustrated guide for troubleshooting anilox roll applications. The new 24-page illustrated guide provides a comprehensive reference to common and not-so-common conditions that frequently arise during the anilox printing process.

Suggested care of bearings and gears, solutions to plate cylinder over-impressions, corrective actions for misaligned anilox, plate and impression cylinders and cures for excessive impressions between plate and substrate are among the problems addressed in the  troubleshooting guide.

Ink-related issues warrant extensive coverage in the new guide. It offers a bulleted causes/remedies approach to many topics: monitoring of ink pressure, elimination of ink flooding and excessive pressure, avoiding improper settings of the ink roller nip, solutions to fast-drying ink, ink with excessive viscosity, water-based ink with insufficient pH, solvent imbalances and more.
