What is Anilox?

Hayneswood Anilox Coating Systems are a well-proven method of controlling film weight application and distribution on sheet fed coaters.


In the conventional fountain and distribution roll system, film thickness is governed by adjusting the gap between the two metering rolls.

With the Anilox upgrade, the amount of lacquer held in the engraved roller cells determines the film thickness. Coating material is transferred to the Anilox roller from a lacquer chamber which employs two scraper blades.
