Print presses gather buildup and coatings over time. Ink, paper lint, dust, and grease can cause misalignment and registration issues, so regular deep cleaning of the print press is a must.
This can seem like a daunting task, and you may be concerned about the downtime or potential damage to equipment from being disassembled and painstakingly cleaned.
Certain chemicals or abrasives might be unsuitable for the smaller components of your press, and other parts (we’re looking at you, ink trays) can be particularly resistant to solvents.
Luckily Subzero’s dry ice blasting can blast away all of these concerns, like we did for this print press in Hamilton, Ontario.
