29 January 2018
Polymount Film Cleaner
Finally it’s here; The Polymount Film Cleaner, the first machine that enables printers to reuse their start-up material by cleaning printed film. In the first quarter of 2018 we will install the first couple of Film Cleaners. After introducing this ground-breaking concept at Drupa in 2016 we received a lot of interest.
Every printer we asked confirmed that the amount of start-up waste they could reduce by using our machine would have a significant impact on their profitability and sustainability.
With this is mind we kept improving and developing the Film Cleaner to absolute perfection, and now it's finally ready to hit the market! If you are interested in the performance and capabilities of our Film Cleaner, send us your material and we will run it through our machine. It is also possible to visit our Creation Center for a live demo with your material, simply contact one of our sales offices for more info.
