HVP (High Volume Process)
wide web / narrow web / post print / pre print
The HVP Engraving is an intermediate anilox that was designed by Sandon Global after eighteen months research and development. Its elongated cell design allows us to combine high line counts with high volumes, the result being HVP engravings far increase the print latitude of one anilox in comparison to conventional specifications.
The versatility of this engraving allows us to print; solids, mechanical tints, vignettes, fine line/text and clean reverse out print. This reduces your anilox inventory and press downtime as less anilox changeovers are required as one anilox can now print so much more.
The other major benefits to this engraving style include:
- Improved release characteristics resulting in enhanced lay down therefore reducing pin-holing on solids in comparison to conventional 60°.
- Improved release characteristics reduce backfill and make the cells easier to clean.
- Improved wear characteristics in comparison to conventional 60° engravings allowing cells to maintain good cell ratios and therefore maintain their release characteristics for longer.
