This changed the world of anilox engraving forever. This leadership
approach continued when we helped rocket Flexography’s print qual-

of our Spectrum 60ºhexagon laser engraving geometry. The hexagon
shape became and remains today the global standard anilox geometry
for process, line and combo printing.
Harper also revolutionized ceramic surface technologies through
its foremost efforts in plasma ceramic technology. Harper was the first
to achieve less than 1% porosity in its ceramic coating manufacturing
process -- thought impossible by experts before we did it!
Then we fundamentally improved our reproduction process when
we introduced the digital measurement technology Echocel ET2000™,
improving anilox reproduction volume transfer accuracy by 100%.We
also advanced surface transfer properties of ceramic when we introduced
the Platinum® surface technology. Today, we continue to pioneer ultimate
surface technologies and engravings including the XLT™, XVR™,
XDI™, XTR™, LaserKote™ and more.
