Anilox rolls


Apex distinguishes itself by the independent cause to lead the field in anilox laser engraving technology. Unique is the UltraMelt laser technology. Apex uses this post-treatment technique to provide all her laser engraved anilox rolls with a melted layer making the surface smooth and shining like a mirror!

Homogenous ceramic layer (porosity less 1%)
Apex manufactures a homogenous and compact ceramic layer of unequalled quality thanks to the specially in-house developed plasma technology, with a porosity less than 1% without using any sealer nor using a post treatment. The hardness of the ceramic layer is 1400-1500 HV.

Ultracell and Ultracell Plus, newest screen developments
Decreased chances of score-lines, longer life-time and improved cleaning characteristics are the most eye catching advantages of Apex’ anilox rolls. Co² is the standard engraving quality and alternatives are the Apex UltraCell and UltraCell Plus engraving qualities. Apex manufactures all types of screen developments and specifications. Amongst these are: Regular hexagonal and elongated cells, Pyramid cells, Positive screens, Trihelical and Channellox engravings.

Ravol Liquid Volume Test


The Ravol Liquid Volume Test is the first and only quality-certified measurement system available in the market. The printing process is copied; a certain amount of ink is spread by means of a doctor blade onto the anilox roll. The volume is then measured and calculated. 

It is easy to handle and accurate. Within two minutes a printer can tell either a roll is able to produce a certain colour density again, or it needs cleaning or renovation. There is no need to dismantle an anilox roll from the machine and waste valuable printing time. The printer can make an inventory of the usable anilox rolls at any time and prevent problems to occur.
