Three years ago, Zecher established a Key Account Management especially for this customer segment in order to offer in-depth support which is adapted to the special requirements of the OEM business.

The anilox roller manufacturer Zecher GmbH has managed to continue its success from last year into 2017. In the first half of the year the company has already increased the order receipt value by 10% compared to last year. A standstill at Zecher is inconceivable - due to the increase in the number of orders, as well as the growing customer requirements, the anilox roller manufacturer is now extending its capacities and technological opportunities within the area of laser engraving. To achieve this, two laser engraving systems will be brought completely up to date through upgrades this year. In addition, Zecher will also install a new system which is fitted with all the hardware and software options currently available.

Going beyond the cleaning services provided previously, Zecher now also offers its customers in the printing industry cleaning products that they can use themselves. The range of products available on the market for the cleaning of anilox rollers is varied, and it’s becoming more and more difficult for the user to find the right product for their needs.

Regular deep-cleaning of operational anilox rollers is of crucial importance when it comes to high-quality printing. According to Zecher GmbH however, conventional procedures remove only part of the accumulated residues concerned. The premium manufacturer of anilox rollers has therefore taken up this challenge and carried out various tests in collaboration with the LaserEcoclean company. The outstanding results obtained have led to the installation of a laser cleaning system at Zecher’s works in the German town of Paderborn.
