SANDON GLOBAL SUPPORT UNIQUE CHARITY FUNDRAISING

Leeky

Sandon Global would like to highlight a unique charitable act by a friend of the company Andrew Leek. Andrew is a Conceptual Art Director having worked for companies such as Philips, Comedy Central and MTV.

Andrew's family has been touched by cancer and it is with this in mind that he has offered to auction his artistic skills on ebay. Andrew will visit the highest bidders home and paint a portrait of them wherever it is in the world. All the proceeds will be given to the charity Cancer Research in order to help fight the disease.

It would be amazing if we can get the total as high as possible for what is a truly unique and altruistic act:

SANDON EXPAND MANUFACTURING FACILITY

71

Sandon Global are pleased to announce the extension of our property in Manor Park, Runcorn by 19,000 sq ft taking the overall facility size to 38,000 sq ft.

The extension has been necessary in order to help improve work flow throughout the plant and allow for the additional work won by Sandon Global for anilox supply in the last eighteen months.

In order to meet the challenges of an increased work load Nigel Hedges, Production Director said: "We have increased our production out-put considerably in the last year and in recent months we have invested significantly in three large grinders, three diamond lappers and two sets of finishing equipment in order to ensure that our customers continue to receive excellent lead times and high quality anilox products."

NEW PLASMA INSTALLATION GIVES SANDON THE EDGE ON QUALITY

DSC7142 copy

May 2013. Anilox roll manufacturer Sandon Global Engraving has announced the installation of a new Plasma coating line at its facility in Runcorn, Cheshire. The system was supplied by Sultzer Metco and has enabled the company to develop its own coating standard under the brand name T-Coat+ and represents a £600,000 investment in anilox roll technology.
 
The T-Coat+ system integrates robotic torch handling and roll rotation manipulation to rotate the roll at the correct surface speed and spray distance to apply the required coating. This improves the quality of coatings by providing accurate and repeatable parameters and increases production rates through simple operator interface and set-up. Coatings can be applied to tighter tolerances minimising powder usage and waste and reducing post finishing process times. Installed over a four month period, the T-Coat+ system operates in clean room conditions and includes error alerts through self diagnostic software.

Managing Director John Millington commented, “The new Plasma coating line is a necessary investment if we are to sustain the increasing demand for sharper, crisper images in flexo printing quality. This installation is hugely significant and will give us the edge on anilox roll consistency and give our customers the quality of print the end user expects. We have been successful in this market in a very short time by maintaining nimble production practice and this new investment means we can control the whole process and no longer have to out-source coating. All anilox roll production is statistically analysed to ensure laser engraving to the highest consistency and we have been able to shorten lead times as well as reduce inventory.”

The Sultzer Metco Triplex system was specified to use hydrogen gas which offers a number of advantages over helium systems, notably improvements in the consistency of coatings, increased hardness of the ceramic if needed and reduced porosity levels. A five year expansion plan foresees investment in further laser engraving equipment and the purchase of a second Plasma line is also currently under discussion.

Established in 2004, Sandon Global manufactures high quality laser engraved ceramic coated anilox and gravure rollers for the flexographic printing industry. The company serves an international market and has rapidly established itself as a key supplier to both privately owned and blue chip printing and packaging groups throughout the UK and Europe. The company also offers a full engineering service for both repairing rolls and sleeves as well as developing new concepts in roll and sleeve technologies.
