Vianord Engineering: leading the way to processing water-washable plates at LabelExpo Europe 2017

Thursday, 31 August 2017 18:11

Carros, France – August 31th, 2017. The new EVO WAVE plate processing solution developed by Vianord Engineering in Carros, France, is designed to meet the highest quality and reliability requirements of the most demanding customers. It is engineered to greatly enhance the sustainability advantages offered by water washable plates while safeguarding quality washout and superior screening.

Strategy Advisor at Vianord, Mr. Riccardo de Caria, will introduce the new line of water-washable platemaking solutions to the many visitors of Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels, Belgium from the 25th to the 28th of September and to a packed room of journalists and editors on the 25th of September.

Amongst many other advantages, the new EVO WAVE offers:

  • Trivial equipment footprint, when compared to conventional processing equipment
  • Fastest high-quality washout, perfected by a unique pre-drying feature
  • Unanticipated water management system, which doesn’t require water replacement and only needs to refill the part that naturally evaporates at its working temperature; positioning this processor as the most environmentally sound solution commercially available
  • Stimulating economic performance

The prepress industry has not yet seen anything like this. Our solution is very compact and powerful in its simplicity; users can control and monitor any part of the system in real time as all the hosted applications, which are tightly and fundamentally unified, are controlled by a responsive PLC platform.” commented Mr. de Caria.

Mr. de Caria is most notably known for his innovation and design work on Solvent Platemaking Lines. Mr. de Caria is currently bringing his passion and expertise to the fast-growing water-washable plate niche of the flexo platemaking market, where he foresees a massive growth.

Amongst cost reduction, time saving, increased reliability and higher quality, another important goal that Vianord has accomplished with the introduction of the new Evo WAVE water-washable plate processor, is the reduction of environmental impact.

Field tests run during the design and β-Test phases have demonstrated that the new Vianord Evo WAVE processor is more reliable and more durable than conventional water-washable plate processor built more traditionally.
