We work tirelessly to garner professional, long lasting and effective partnerships with a global network of industry peers, sales agents and distributors. Alphasonics are grateful for the ongoing support from our friends and partners over the years.
Also, at Alphasonics we don’t work on a transactional level - we work on a relationship level. Our customers are also considered our partners within the industry. Here are just some of the testimonials we have received about our anilox cleaning machine, our company and our staff.
What is the best part about using this anilox cleaning machine?
The easy results! The first time we used this machine we went after cleaning one of our toughest anilox rolls used for researching coatings. After a 15 minute cycle it had a visibly different cleanliness to it. After seeing this result, we were eager to clean the rest of our rolls. This was the same result with every one of our anilox rolls!
What process differences have we implemented since?
We have no automatic washout systems on our press. Everything is done by hand per station. Getting a thorough cleaning with every use was very difficult. Aside from hand cleaning, we used to do a once every 3 months ultrasonic washing because we would need focused time to make sure we did not submerged our anilox rolls too long and because the cycles took too long. Being a research facility, we really needed to be able to do this more frequently, use less time, and not have to worry if the roll sat in the cleaner too long. With the Melanie II we can now ultrasonic our rolls as part of our station clean up process. We actually can clean up each station faster and have an ultrasonically cleaned roll after every use. This was a perfect solution for us considering our research needs.
What were the unexpected benefits from using the Melanie II?
Faster clean ups and employee engagement in cleaning. We saw positive changes in the way our employees treated the anilox rolls and an employee lead creation of an anilox inventory and usage document. Once we got the Melanie II, they were cleaning every anilox they could find!

“We have had the Melanie 600-2250DF Duo in our lab since 2018. The Melanie 600-2250DF Duo has brought new life to the oldest and most abused aniloxes we have as well as keeping newer ones on the cusp of performance. We have rollers that are in the area of 15 years old that look like they are next to brand new due to the performance of the Alphasonics anilox cleaning machine. It is remarkably easy to use and maintain. With very little training our students love to use the unit. It has drastically improved the consistency of our solid ink densities in spot color and process color reproduction. On top of how awesome the product performs, the team at Alphasonics USA has been friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive in the rare instance there has been an issue.”
Zachery Blackburn, Instructor Graphic Arts/Flexography at Central Piedmont Community College.
“Here at ABG International, we have had an Alphasonics Melanie system in our facility since 2010 and have found it to be a very useful tool in keeping our Aniloxes clean. It is easy to use, safe and very effective. We have also recommended several of our customers to buy an Alphasonics anilox cleaning machine and as far as we’re aware, they are all very happy with their equipment.”
“Alphasonics have been a trusted supplier to Edale over many years and we have built a strong relationship with them. They have supplied us with their Alphasonics cleaning unit Megan 850-3350 and it has been fundamental to safely cleaning our Anilox rolls to ensure the best quality flexo print jobs. The Megan 850-3350 has been used by our customers worldwide and is also presented in our print showroom at our UK Headquarters in Whitely.”

“I have known and worked with Alphasonics for many years, so it was a no brainer that we should have their kit in our new US showroom. The equipment is of a very high specification, safe, effective and compact. Also in the US, we are supported by Chris Jones who is very helpful.”
