Blanket wash cloth-designed for SMD/SMT rolls
Products for automatic cleaning. Weston wipes are for automatic blanket cleaning, automatic stencil cleaning (SMD/SMT) and Baldwin offset blanket cleaning systems.
In offset, we offer excellent cleaning cloths for automatic blanket cleaning systems. Additionally, we have the ideal material for automatic impression cylinder.
The original Weston blanket wash cloth, a hydraulically entangled non-woven spun lace fabric, is available as washcloth in rolled-up condition, 500 m, that you can cut to length and wind it onto the supply shafts by means of a washcloth winding device as well as smaller rolls, wound onto pasteboard tubes for use in the supply shaft assemblies, which fit exactly to the measurements of your printing machine.
The 500 m rolls and washcloths are applicable for all printing machines with automatic blanket cleaning systems, for example Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 52 or SM 74, for KBA Koenig & Bauer Rapida types as well as for Komori Lithrone and Sprint.
Weston blanket wash cloth saves time and money.
Tests have shown that Weston washcloth has a higher tenacity and absorbs liquids faster than other customary washcloths.
This ensures perfect cleaning and trouble-free operation.
We believe it is the one tested and authorized washcloth for Baldwin automatic blanket cleaning systems.
It is a nonwoven fabric developed with the specific purpose of cleaning blankets using automatic blanket washing systems.
To optimize the cleaning process, it is required low linting and high absorbency of washing solution.
Those key requirements are assured by the following manufacturing highlights:
Longer cellulose fibers which enable stronger bonds with less propensity to tear under tension.
Spunlacing process (High water pressure jets) forms a sheet structure by subjecting the fibers to multiple rows of fine high-pressure jets of water This process enhances the mechanical characteristics of resistance during cleaning in dry and wet conditions.
Weston blanket wash cloth jumbo reel is easy to be converted into SMD/SMT rolls or finished packed wipes.
