      Case story: Advanced cylinder cleaning solutions for sheetfed offset printing

      “Thanks to the increased cleaning efficiency of PREPAC®, we reduce the number of hours required each year for wash time, which raises overall productivity of our presses.”

      Hans-Jürgen Zwosta,Production Manager at creo Druck

      Using Baldwin PREPAC® Advanced blanket and impression cylinder cleaning solutions means German printing and media company creo Druck & Medienservice increases production time and reduces make-ready time.

      To optimize blanket and impression cylinder cleaning for its sheetfed presses, creo Druck switched from conventional dry jumbo rolls to PREPAC® Advanced. The results? Enhanced cleaning performance, substantial savings in wash time and preparation, and minimized handling that requires less space for consumables storage.

      Baldwin Technology optimized the blanket cylinder cleaning process to meet the requirements of creo Druck. Optimization included customized wash programs, reduced make-ready time and improved wash quality. Thanks to the enhanced cleaning performance of PREPAC® Advanced, creo Druck has experienced shorter wash cycles for blanket cylinder cleaning as well as longer intervals between cleaning roll changes.
