  • Stainless brushes are the best brush for optimal cleaning of ceramic anilox rolls and other hardened surfaces.  They are offered with plastic or wooden handles. Plastic handles are generally preferred over the wooden handles to avoid the swelling sometimes associated with wooden handles.
  • Brass Bristles work well for getting dried ink and debris out of the surface of mechanically engraved chrome anilox rolls or (other soft metal surfaces). The brass bristled brushes are used because the softer bristles result in reduced wear to the roll surface when compared to the Stainless bristles. People like the plastic handle. The bristles are 1 inch long and .003 inch diameter Note: brass bristles are not suitable for laser engraved ceramic surfaces. Please do not use brass bristled brushes on laser engraved ceramic surfaces because particles of brass can lodge in the ceramic cells.

  • Horse Hair bristled brushes are designed for cleaning of printing plates and softer surfaces. Horse hair bristled brushes are not suitable for use on rolls, only for cleaning printing plates and other softer surfaces in the press room.

Description

The best anilox cleaning brushes are specifically designed for optimal cleaning of printing equipment.

  • Stainless brushes are the best brush for optimal cleaning of ceramic anilox rolls and other hardened surfaces.  Because the bristles are the exact diameter necessary to dislodge debris from the anilox cells and also because stainless steel does not abrade and leave particles of steel in the anilox roll cells. These brushes are offered with plastic or wooden handles. Plastic handles are generally preferred over the wooden handles to avoid the swelling sometimes associated with wooden handles.  You may want to buy some Rejuvenator Gel to help remove dried ink, glue or other coatings from the cells.

Maintaining Anilox Rolls in Digital Printing Presses

These brushes are the optimal brushes for cleaning digital anilox rolls.  Many of the new digital presses contain one or more anilox units.  These anilox rolls need periodic cleaning just like  traditional anilox rolls.  Although the digital anilox rolls may have a different appearance or may not even be visible inside the machine, they are still anilox rolls.  The cleaning and maintenance requirements are very similar to the traditional anilox units.  If the anilox rolls are out of site inside the digital machine does not mean they should be out of mind.  These rolls still have the laser engraved cells which will fill with dried ink, glue, or UV Coatings.  As the cells become plugged the quality and consistency of the output will degrade.
