CAE partners with IST

Durban-based CAE (Ceramic Anilox Engravers), local supplier of anilox transfer technologies and cleaning solutions, has partnered with Italian-owned IST (Italia Sistemi Tecnologica) to supply specialised washing units and recovery systems to the southern African narrow-web and wide-web printing industry.

‘We’re delighted to have been chosen to represent the IST brand, which perfectly complements our equipment sales, service and parts supply portfolio,’ declares Paul Rich, CAE operations director.

‘Our experienced sales and technical teams have received comprehensive training on IST systems and can assist printing companies, large or small, with their wash-up and solvent recovery requirements. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with IST.’


Established in 1987, IST supplies single-batch, multi-batch and continuous cycle solvent recyclers, waste water recovering units, solvent- and water-based washing units, and ultrasonic washing equipment for anilox rolls, gravure cylinders and printing sleeves.

During the last 27 years, IST has completed more than 26 000 installations worldwide, including multiple projects in South Africa. Backed by ISO 9001 accreditation, the company’s focus is on providing cost-effective machines of the highest quality and efficiency.

At this year’s Propak Cape, visitors can meet Paul Rich and IST area manager, Alessandro Galli, who are demonstrating IST’s advanced technologies.
