Standard EKRA Stencil Cleaner
Each individual EKRA inline printing system is equipped with the standard stencil cleaner. The stencil cleaner removes paste or glue residues and vacuums the stencil apertures. Removing paste and glue residues is done by wiping, using wet or dry cleaning tissues. The application of cleaning media to perform the wet cleaning can be done either by using a porous stone or using a movable nozzle. Vacuuming the apertures is done using Venturi nozzles or side channel blowers.
The paper feed and paper amount are constantly monitored and electronic drives and roller monitoring ensure a constant paper feed. The fully automatic and programmable paper moistening with integrated fill-level control, guarantees an even and user optimized moistening of the paper surface.
Thanks to a quick change cassette system, the cleaning paper can be exchanged in seconds. The paper can be exchanged during normal print mode thus avoiding the normally associated downtimes.
