SUN Automation Group® has entered an agreement to sell, install and service the CleanPrint Chemicals’ specialist biochemistry cleaning system throughout North America. CleanPrint Chemicals is a leading formulator and manufacturer of cleaning products and systems for the box industry. The Australian patented (patent-pending in U.S.) automatic delivery system and chemical technology protects equipment by removing dried ink from the internals quickly and efficiently.
The ‘Cleaning in Place’ system keeps chambers, pumps, ink lines, anilox rolls, and other internal components clear of dried ink. Many box plants will run several three-minute automatic rinse cycles through the system on color changes to obtain clear enough water to commence a new print run. With CleanPrint, the typical multi-rinse process is reduced to one four-minute cycle that improves the job — reducing setup, downtime and maintenance while increasing overall production. Each plant currently using the CleanPrint system has gained a conservative one hour extra production per day which can equate to an extra 5,000-10,000 boxes, the companies report.
CleanPrint is also eco-friendly, saving water with reduced cycle times and using natural and safe ingredients. The Super Bioclean 5G cleaning solution is a blend of safe, water-based solvents and specially designed enzymes that rapidly and naturally liquefy and break down complex starch and dried ink. It also aids in delivering cleaner wastewater when working with CleanPrint systems.
“CleanPrint has become the standard in Australia and New Zealand and we are working hard to bring our revolutionary and eco-friendly solution worldwide,” says Geoff Literski, CEO of CleanPrint Chemicals. “When looking for support in North America, we quickly realized that SUN Automation is the best in the market for retrofits. SUN provides our customers with the skill set, engineering prowess and customer service to get the job done. SUN is very highly respected in the industry and this matches our own ethos of product quality and customer service.”
“We always strive to be a value-added service and solutions provider to our customers,” says Ron Diedeman, President of SUN Automation. “With CleanPrint systems in our portfolio, we are excited about maintaining that commitment by being able to offer customers a sustainable competitive advantage that improves our customer’s bottom-line.”
