Pioniere der Rasterwalze - Zecher

The anilox roller pioneers

Zecher’s activities have always revolved around anilox rollers: After starting out with production of the world’s first routinely engraved anilox roller, we have turned into a top-quality international supplier of innovative anilox-roller solutions. Ever since the company was founded in 1948 by Kurt Zecher, we have been continuously dedicated to improving the performance of the print roller, as evidenced by our more than 65 years’ experience in the production of engraved anilox rollers.

Tailored solutions for your individual needs

If print quality is to be optimised, the anilox rollers used must be matched to your personal requirements – as this is the only way to get the best out of your printing process. We therefore provide a wide range of anilox-roller solutions and additional services, which we will be pleased to adapt to your needs. We furthermore invite you to benefit from our experience in the printing sector, as we jointly apply our applications technology to dealing with the challenges involved.

Our approach to quality

The teams based at the four production plants of our company headquarters in Paderborn (Germany), which amount to more than 165 employees, manufacture anilox rollers and corresponding sleeves for your print applications. Production takes place exclusively in Germany as part of our continuous effort to maintain our strict in-house quality standards. This translates into reliable and consistent performance for the rollers that we supply to you.
