Acme will be pre-launching its product at Labelexpo India 2018 and will be delivering the product by mid of January 2019. Parag Koradia, director, Acme Rolltech, said, "Acme is India’s first indigenous facility for ceramic Anilox Roller."

The ceramic anilox rollers find applications in a printing process in form of inking rolls, metering rolls, coating rolls for UV, adhesive, lacquer and other special applications.

Parag Koradia, director, Acme Rolltech, said, “The label printing companies require a large number of ceramic anilox rolls and as yet everyone is importing these. We are going to manufacture ceramic anilox rollers locally with state-of-the-art infrastructure, best types of machinery available in the industry, so as to offer quality and result of ceramic anilox rolls at par with the imported ones. The label printers can save on import duties and delivery time. The biggest USP of the product is lesser delivery time and landed price."

“The major advantage of the local availability of ceramic anilox rolls is that the printers can send rolls back for rework as per their new specification and requirements. They can also work with minimum anilox rolls library. Shorter lead time enables better scheduling and implementation on the production floor,” added Koradia.
