Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) has boosted its presence in the packaging sector with the acquisition of flexible packaging machinery manufacturer Graphbury Machines.

PCMC president Steve Kemp said the purchase will “strengthen our ability to provide value to our existing customers, while remaining responsive to emerging market technologies”.

Graphbury has developed a range of products that improve flexographic printers’ production and performance.

According to the supplier, its Anilox Laser Washing Machine offers customers the ability to clean ceramic and chrome Anilox rolls of any line screen without causing surface wear.

The laser technology works on all kinds of inks, and vaporises deposited particles inside of the cells.
