GREEN BAY, Wis. — Jan. 31, 2019 — Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC)—which serves the flexible-packaging, prime-label and carton-converting industries—is pleased to announce that Poly Print Inc., a family-owned and operated flexographic printing business located in Tucson, Arizona, has successfully  installed a Meridian laser anilox cleaner.


“I saw the benefits and results firsthand of the Meridian at a previous employer,” commented John Cowens, Printing Department Manager at Poly Print. “So, I knew that the Meridian would be a valuable asset and the best option for Poly Print. The Meridian allows the anilox to perform at correct volumes, thus saving time, ink and waste.”


The Meridianlaser anilox cleaner provides printers and converters with a solution for one-pass cleaning that achieves like-new anilox surface conditions at unprecedented speeds, many times increasing efficiency by 300 percent or more. The Meridian does not require any chemicals, sodium bicarbonate, polymer beads, water or detergents, making it a sustainable cleaning technology that has a very low environmental impact.


“One of the main reasons I like the Meridian is because it’s engineered, manufactured and serviced in the United States,” said Cowens. “We also liked the fact that it is backed by PCMC’s superior customer service and support.”


“We had the opportunity to service a new customer based on firsthand experience with the Meridian,” said Rich Stratz, Regional Sales Manager at PCMC, part of Barry-Wehmiller. “That speaks volumes about the Meridian’s value and performance. We are very excited to add a company like Poly Print to our list of satisfied customers.”
