of press maintenance/repair

with the best service in the industry at a fair price.
Proper & regular maintenance of your existing UV curing system will dramatically improve performance and system longevity. It is imperative that all air filters are cleaned weekly or at the very least
bi-monthly so that system cooling is at optimum levels. When replacing UV bulbs be certain to clean
the bulb surface and reflector surface using isopropyl alcohol and a lint free cloth prior to restarting
the system. Occasionally you may experience problems with capacitors or other electrical components due to over cycling (on/off) inside the control cabinet. AAA Press offers technical assistance for all Lightouch models. We carry an extensive inventory of replacement parts for the Lightouch UV curing system: Versiflex and Microstep models.
Press maintenance can improve quality, reduce waste.
Press maintenance is the key, not only for improved print quality and reduced waste, but also for increasing the life of the press, rollers, gears and cylinders. Downtime is also significantly reduced and
frustration levels are lower.
The narrow web flexographic process requires the use of printing, die-cutting, laminating
other functions depending on the job at hand. Critical components include gears, bearings rollers,
and drive components which when neglected contribute to mis-registration, poor print quality
and increased waste. A press that has been neglected for more than 3-5 years can bring rebuild costs
in excess of $20,000. A solid preventative maintenance plan will extend the life of the press and
bring more profits to the bottom line due to higher productivity and less waste.
AAA Press can provide you with a preventative maintenance plan that is tailored to your organization
and operational usage for many narrow web presses including Webtron, Mark Andy, Aquaflex and Propheteer to name a few. We offer annual, semi-annual and quarterly service contracts to keep
your presses running smoothly. Our programs include an initial press survey upon our arrival to determine
what components are out of original specification. Next, we will review the press survey and with your approval, order the components for overnight delivery & expedite the maintenance plan.
Our factory trained service personnel can also provide emergency service and technical phone support
by contacting our service manager at (847) 818-1100.
