Leading anilox manufacturer Sandon Global (‘Sandon’) continues its program of investments with the installation of two new plasma coating booths at its UK headquarters.
The new booths will use proprietary thermal spray technology to produce anilox coatings that achieve increased hardness and lower porosity ratings than competing products, enabling printers to achieve premium quality print performance, reduce waste and minimise costs.
This new facility marks the latest in a range of investments by Sandon since the company moved to its new purpose-built premises. The site incorporates an in-house state-of-the-art metallurgical laboratory for research and development, enabling the company to further improve the quality of existing coatings and explore new developments.
Last year, the company invested in a powder manufacturing line to develop its own powder coating formulations that are tested using the latest generation equipment to maximise anilox performance. The new plasma coating investment now provides six metre capability to the business enabling it to tap into truly wide-web tissue, toilet roll, non-wovens, corrugated and textiles markets.
Richard Millington, Managing Director of Sandon Global, said: “At Sandon, we are investing in the future of anilox. We never stand still and have made significant progress since the move to our new headquarters with our unique R&D facilities. We’re focused on delivering next generation anilox solutions for a wide range of customers around the world and these latest capabilities change the game for us in terms of product performance and market access. We’re really excited about the progress we can now make in untapped markets.”
