The program on the anniversary day included a visit to the second largest cylinder manufacturer in China, which owns Daetwyler laser engraving machines. In addition, a doctor blade customer specialized in the production of food and pharmaceutical packaging was visited. The Anniversary celebration continued with a dinner at the famous "Paulaner" restaurant. Daetwyler SwissTec presented a Doctor Blade in the shape of a 6 (meaning luck) and Daetwyler China expressed the successful cooperation of the last 20 years with a sailboat made from crystal.
Via video message Ralph Daetwyler also presented his congratulations and wishes for at least another 20 years of successful partnership.
We congratulate Beijing HSJ on their anniversary and wish them all the best for the future.
A change in management is happening at Daetwyler-Hell Iberia in the fall of 2021. The new General Manager Javier Ortega Gàlvez visited and introduced himself at our headquarters in Bleienbach.

If you’ve ever experienced the hard deposits left by dripping inks and back doctoring, you know it can impact print quality, damage equipment, and cause cleaning and maintenance headaches… but wouldn’t you also like to know why it keeps happening?
Throughout the industry, white inks are notorious for being inconsistent and requiring frequent changing of doctor blades often. Weighing the cost of a doctor blade vs. the cost of press downtime is as issue printers and coaters deal with constantly. The issue with metering white inks is actually a little more complicated than just buying the right blade.
There are many ways to describe chatter: bounce, gear-marks, banding and stripes of uneven ink application on the printing field. But whatever name it goes by, the common attribute is that chatter often shows up with little or no warning once on press.
With the existing MDC Anilox Cleaner, we have succeeded in establishing a solvent-based deep cleaner for all chrome and ceramic anilox rolls in gravure and flexographic printing applications. The deep cleaning is important so that the full pick-up volume of all chrome and ceramic anilox rolls can be achieved.
In order to meet market requirements and customer needs, we have now developed a new cleaner called MDC Aqua Pure Cleaner. As the name suggests, the MDC Aqua Pure Cleaner is water-based and offers the customer a gentle and effective deep cleaning of all chrome and ceramic anilox rolls. A major advantage is that the new cleaner is non-hazardous: it can therefore be easily shipped around the world by truck, air, and sea freight. Furthermore, the new cleaner is safe on aluminum and removes all common ink and varnish contaminants.
The MDC Aqua Pure Cleaner optimally complements the existing range and enables us to enter new target markets. The MDC Aqua Pure Cleaner was launched in June 2020 and has already achieved initial sales success.
