Drupa 2012 Results and Update on enpurex®,
Our New Revolutionary Anilox Cleaning Liquid
Drupa 2012 visitors were down from previous years but the TKM Group was pleased with the results from visits to their stands in Halls 3 (Rolf Meyer) and 11 (IKS Klingelnberg). New products were introduced including a new plasma coated guillotine knife. This new technology eliminates buildup on the knife while cutting aluminum litho-plate. We also introduced our new MegaPrint Protect ceramic coated doctor blade for gravure printing. The most excitement at our Rolf Meyer stand in Hall 3 was in relation to enpurex®, our new revolutionary anilox cleaner. We gave continual live cleaning demonstrations, and the volume of traffic was very good due to the buzz surrounding the quick and effective manner in which it works.
Rolf Meyer GmbH (Bargteheide/Germany) acquired the worldwide distribution rights for enpurex® for the printing, packaging and tissue industries from its developer Bubbles & Beyond (Leipzig/Germany) effective January 2012. TKM United States and Rolf Meyer GmbH are both part of the TKM Group, and TKM United States is the sole distributor of enpurex in North America.
Enpurex® was created with the advanced technology of Bubbles & Beyond’s growing portfolio of Intelligent Fluids™. The unique way in which it physically breaks the bond between the ink and the anilox roller provides a big economic and environmental advantage. Simply put, this new cleaner quickly and gently deep cleans anilox rollers like no other cleaner on the market.
In addition to being highly effective, the patented enpurex® product line is 100% biodegradable and pH neutral. The cleaner is water based and acid free. It removes layers of ink and lacquer quickly and mildly, without leaving any residue. Specialized cleaning sponges were also introduced to help achieve optimum results.
Testing at customers in the printing, packaging and tissue industries are already underway and are proving to be highly effective and reliable.
If you stopped by one of our booths at Drupa, we thank you. If you are interested in any of our products we ask that you please contact TKM United States for additional information or to order.
