Aquasupreme

The Aquasupreme is a stainless steel plate processing machine designed for water washable photo-polymer printing plates. Equipped with a touchscreen digital display for all plate processing functions and a PLC, the machine has a fixed sticky base plate, where the printing plate is placed and and washed in a mixture of water and 1% dishwasher soap, at a temperature of approximately 40° C.

Besides the features of temperature control, an adjustable brush and a water tank with a pump, the entire wash cycle is performed in a significantly shorter time than usual plate making solutions.

Water Cleaning membrane unit

Water Cleaning membrane unit

The Aquasupreme incorporates AV Flexologic’s unique water cleaning membrane unit. With this machine, the polymer is continuously filtered, as the water circulates within the washing system. In the recycling process, the water is cleaned without adding any detergent, keeping both wash tank and bath always clean. The polymer residuals are placed in a small waste compartment, and the water is renewed and returned to the wash tank. By using this method, the waste only needs to be removed once or twice a week, and the water in the system replaced less frequently than the other usual methods.

The Aquasupreme is Eco-friendly and its technology was thought to avoid the unnecessary waste of water and of other chemical components.

Integrity

Patrick Marchant, Pre-Press Systems Technician at Integrity says: "The Aquasupreme allows us to produces high quality, environmentally friendly, flexo plates without the need to use any hazardous materials. This gives us excellent registration and consistent plate quality. It took us a long time to find the correct cleaning/maintenance routine. We had several overflow/cleaning issues until we started using the Cosmo Soap WB2. This made cleaning, maintenance and smell a lot better." Integrity was very favorable about the installation process: “Friendly, efficient and knowledgeable with regular visits after the installation to help refine the quality of our plate output.”
