Low-maintenance TURBOCLEAN ADVANCED E continues success of system family
With the new inking and wash-up system TURBOCLEAN, Windmöller & Hölscher has already set a new standard in the market.

"Since then, we have continuously refined the systems for an optimum ink supply, the best cleaning results, minimum ink loss and reduced energy consumption. Today, TURBOCLEAN has...
