Engraving for Rolls & Sleeves
Harper is proud to have been the pioneering company that was first to successfully introduce ceramic anilox surfaces for flexographic printing. This changed the world of anilox engraving forever. This leadership approach continued when we helped rocket Flexography’s print quality to levels comparable to offset and gravure with the introduction of our Spectrum 60º hexagon laser engraving geometry. The hexagon shape became and remains today the global standard anilox geometry for process, line and combo printing.
Harper also revolutionized ceramic surface technologies through its foremost efforts in plasma ceramic technology. Harper was the first to achieve less than 1% porosity in its ceramic coating manufacturing process — thought impossible by experts before we did it!
Then we fundamentally improved our reproduction process when we introduced the digital measurement technology Echocel ET2000™, improving anilox reproduction volume transfer accuracy by 100%. We also advanced surface transfer properties of ceramic when we introduced the Platinum® surface technology. Today, we continue to pioneer ultimate surface technologies and engravings including the XLT™, XVR™, XDI™, XTR™, LaserKote™ and more.
