Brushing instead of polishing   



Helio brushing is a surface treatment process for gravure cylinders and embossing rollers. Finishing with Helio brushing replaces conventional surface treatments with polishing stones.

As a result, cylinder surfaces can be fabricated in a single process step with tight score spacing and the desired orientation.





     - Different surface roughnesses can be achieved in a controlled manner


     - Very uniform surface texture (Rz and Rmax nearly identical)


     - Very good printing results (no toning) due to tight score spacing (blade lubrication)


     - The orientation of the scores can be controlled


     - Long cylinder service life




    - Standard machines can be upgraded with a Helio Brushing unit

    - Can be integrated into existing polishing/finishing systems

    - Straightforward operation and parameter programming

    - Reduced production costs due to reduced throughput times

    - Supports wet and dry production process (no waste water)

    - Grinding agent savings (stones)

    - Minimum brush wear


Dramatic cost reductions compared to conventional polishing processes with concurrently better quality!

- copper surfaces                                           - copper, steel and aluminum 

- chrome surfaces                                          - deburring and cleaning of engraved,

- cleaning and edge breaking                          - engraved, etched, and laser cylinders

  on engravings



- Accurate adjustments and control of contact pressure and speed


- Touch screen with intuitive operation


- Flexible uses due to low-profile installation height


- Easily adapted on standard machinery
