Effective cleaning of cylinders

The fully automatic gravure cylinder cleaners are designed to clean gravure cylinders of all sizes. Rotating and oscillating brushes will remove excess ink from the shaft and end of the cylinder making it clean on all surfaces. A travers surface brush will clean the cylinder face.

Two ways - your choice!

Flexo Wash provides you two different types of units:

  • Cylinder cleaning with non-solvent liquid
  • Cylinder cleaning with solvents

Both machine types use rotating and oscillating brushes to clean all surfaces of the cylinder perfectly clean - even the shafts and end faces. 

Connect all non-solvent gravure cylinder cleaning units with our Recirculation system to reduce your water consumption.

Cylinder cleaners for all needs

The Flexo Wash Cylinder Cleaners come in many different models which can be modified by combining the standard unit with one or more of the various options. Our large portfolio of units and options reflects the flexibility needed to meet all the needs of the gravure industry.


FW Gravure-series

All larger FW Cylinder Cleaners are equipped with a PLC control, which enables easy change of the various program settings e.g. washing time, rotation speed and temperature. 

The FW 3000-4500 Cylinder Cleaners are designed to clean larger and heavier rolls and sleeves. They can all be adapted to fit your specific needs by for example adding an extra traction system to clean more cylinders per wash or reinforcing the machine to clean even heavier rolls.

The FW 2000-2 & 3000-2 Cylinder Cleaners are designed to clean two cylinders per wash. By adding an extra traction system these units can wash as many as four cylinders per wash.

Finally, the FW 3000-4500 XL models are designed to hold an even larger cylinder diameter then the FW 3000-4000 standard units. 


GCC 2300 ATEX-series

The Gravure Cylinder Cleaner 2300 ATEX is made for cleaning of gravure cylinders with solvents. It is safe to use and gentle on the cylinders, meaning that you can clean the cylinders as often as needed. Consistent and high-quality print is only achieved if the cylinders are completely clean.

The system is based on solvents sprayed on the cylinder. The system is effective for all types of rotogravure cylinders. The cleaning process leaves the cylinders clean and ready for immediate reuse or storage. The cylinders are cleaned without causing any wear or tear.

The Gravure Cylinder Cleaner 2300 ATEX can be equipped with oscillating end face brushes.

The GCC 2300 ATEX comes in two variants:

  • GCC 2300-1 ATEX for cleaning 1 cylinder per wash cycle
  • GCC 2300-2 ATEX for cleaning 2 cylinders per wash cycle
