Qualiflex were looking to find an efficient water wash Flexo plate making solution, combining excellent plate quality with enhanced environmental benefits.


Their investment in a dual tank, easy to maintain, DigiWash 4835, in tandem with the AquaClean Pro Filtration System was therefore the perfect solution. The system offers fast plate making with enhance environmental benefits and produces plates with flat top dots and superior ink release, compared with other standard plate technologies.

The filtration system provides an effective circulation of waste water. Following plate processing, water containing polymer is transferred to a main filter and then through a second tank where finer particles are removed via a series of ceramic filters. The recycled clean water is then held in a third unit ready to be re-used in the plate process.

“We wanted to be at the forefront of something new – water wash isn’t new, but what Dantex is offering certainly is. It was crucial for us to find a solution deemed better for the environment and we have seen it for ourselves – the plate quality and eco-friendly results are there.

“The process is also incredibly efficient, cutting down the plate making time from 3-4 hours to 1 hour from start to finish. What we have now is far more in-line with our offering and I’m excited to be working with Dantex.”
