GERMANY • Most recently, the Model Group installed a FW 3000 anilox cleaning device by Flexo Wash at its Berka plant in Germany. It was the 200th unit to be sold to Germany by the Danish manufacturer, with the aid of its local sales and service partner, Dortschy.

Joachim Schmidt, operations manager at the Berka plant, commented: “Our new anilox cleaning system ensures our rollers have a consistent transfer volume, so that we do not have to adjust the ink recipes. This makes the colour recipe cheaper, and we have less machine downtime caused by the need to colour correct.”


The corrugated board that Model delivers is as light as it is robust, thanks to its wave shape. It is also recyclable and consists mainly of waste paper. With its high load capacity, it is suitable for all types of packaging, folding boxes, and displays.

Referring to his company’s most recent purchase, Model’s deputy process manager of pre-print, Christian Gross added: ” With the FW 3000, we can deep-clean the anilox rolls and anilox sleeves from our two Bobst presses in only 20-45 minutes, depending on the degree of soiling.”

Model Group is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of solid and corrugated board packaging ranging from simple transport packaging to deluxe boxes for the confectionary and perfume industries. The Group is made up of ten subsidiaries in nine countries, and employs over 4200 staff.
