The paper is devoted to the ink transfer issues of systems with anilox rollers. The main characteristics of anilox rollers in short inking systems have been analyzed. The differences and features of isolated and channeled cells geometries of anilox rollers have been highlighted. The influence of anilox rollers cells geometry on ink transfer processes has been defined. Typical cell geometries on the anilox surface have been summarized and peculiarities of their use have been formulated.
Keywords: ink transfer, anilox roller, cell, anilox volume.
