Together innovative and efficient solutions for cleaning in flexographic printing!
Two strong partners have joined forces to consolidate their expertise: the machine producer Duo-Technik GmbH and the consumables producer CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH. Both companies stand for efficient products and solutions, outstanding quality and reliable service as well as family-oriented company policy.
Two companies – combined skills and strengths
Duo-Technik GmbH is a mid-sized company specialised in machinery construction, which has developed and produced quality and performance-increasing products for the printing industry for more than 25 years. The portfolio includes, among other things, drying systems, dust extraction systems, printing plate washing systems, ink management systems and UV dryers.
CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH is one of the global market leaders in print postprocessing. As a supplier and service provider, the company is active on all continents and has a well-established worldwide sales and distribution network. CITO sets the benchmarks in the graphic industry and has decades of experience in marketing diecutting and diemaking consumables. A key factor for success: The products and know-how are developed from daily practice. The company is therefore always close to the needs of the users. In order to remain a reliable contact in future, the in-house R&D department is expanded continuously.
Cooperation – joint development projects for increased customer benefits
When developing new products, both companies focus on providing exactly the solutions the customer needs. They rely on cooperation and exchange of experience. It was therefore the obvious move, to create a cooperation between a leading company in the printing industry and a recognised expert in consumables. The intention is to create and market innovative and modern solutions for cleaning in flexographic corrugated printing together. A first common development project has already been implemented successfully: the FDS – Mix Direct Mixing Station.
CITOCLYN market launch – the step into the flexographic printing industry
For CITO, the market launch of the CITOCLYN cleaning agents series in October 2020 was simultaneously the entry into a new industry, flexographic printing. A logical step: In recent years the company has increased its focus on products for processing corrugated board. It expects to achieve synergy effects here, as flexographic printing plays a significant role in corrugated board conversion.
CITOCLYN cleaning series – reliable, efficient and sustainable
CITOCLYN is already being used successfully by renowned companies only a short time after the market launch. CITOCLYN Uni Eco is the cleaning agent recommended by Duo-Technik GmbH.
The CITOCLYN portfolio includes a selection of different cleaning agents: CITOCLYN Uni Eco is the all-rounder for manual and automatic printing plate cleaning, machine cleaning as well as for parts cleaning systems with ISEGA certification. The CITOCLYN Uni variant is specially defoamed and is therefore optimally suitable for ultrasound cleaning systems. CITOCLYN Man was developed for the removal of dried on printing ink outside of the printing machine. CITOCLYN Anilox is used to remove stubborn calcium deposits. CITOCLYN UV, a cleaning agent for UV flexographic printing and dispersion inks and 2C varnishes, rounds off the product range.
Celebrate with us! As a special cooperation offer, each customer who purchases a Final Plate Cleaner (FPC) and/or an Auto Clean System (ACS) will receive a free sample of the CITOCLYN Uni Eco cleaner!
