In this etching process three-dimensional designs or textures are milled onto the roll’s surface (Etching Press), this product is used for embossing wallpaper, floor and ceiling tiles, leather, vinyl and paper. Each three-dimensional pattern is engraved on a steel core roller, which has a diameter ranging from 20 mm to 600mm.
Used for : Coating, Laminating, Bonding (Adhesives) etc.
For both coating and bonding, a variety of mill types are available. Roller mill techniques such as our guadra-gravure, pyramid, hexagonal, or transformed quadra-gravure types may be used. Our rollers are produced in diameters ranging from 20mm up to 500mm, and of lengths up to 4,000mm. A variety of cell shapes may be engraved on steel core rollers or copper plated rollers. The durability of the rollers is insured by the final process of nickel or chrome-nickel plating. Then the rollers are ready for their use in printing, bonding or embossing. Currently, the company is also developing and manufacturing precision rollers.
The anilox roll is fundamentally machine engraved. The angle of the cell-wall on the engraved roll is sharp and equalized. This wider bank width results in higher durability. So, cell capacity is obtained precisely with transfered quantity. Engraving is that, embossing is performed by a special prototype-mill which pressure engraves the roll, continuing to form the cell until completion. After that, a hard-chrome process is done to 10～20 μ of thickness.

An Anilox roll’s life is not permanet. The length of usefullness depends upon the frequency, and method of roll use. The rough-standard, using a 2 roll-method, is a few years or using a steel-doctor blade for 50～1,500,000 meters. There are two methods commonly used to re-engrave rolls. The first is to re-engrave after polishing and the other is to re-engrave after modifying with a copper plating process.
The Anilox roll is already hard-chrome plated. Due to the solutions being utilized, corrosion sometimes occurs with cracking and damage to the chromium layer. But, there is a method to strengthen the roll with a barrier layer of nickel plating.
