Ink logistics provider GSE (stand 558) will demonstrate its Ink manager software, a comprehensive ink management solution for minimising ink-related waste, enhanced reporting, improved ink yields and business planning, reduced setup times and traceability.
In one-to-one demonstrations, visitors will experience the software’s many value-added functions. First, the software maximises the reuse of inks returned from the press, by allowing them to be “clustered” together into one component, which is connected to the dispenser and processed automatically. Alternatively, return inks may be reserved or prepared for specific, scheduled jobs. Other functions are real-time stock and consumption information, per-job ink costings, ink batch tracking; integration with ink formulation and management information software; Wi-Fi connection to the dispenser and cloud connectictivity. Ink manager can store recipes and corrections for new colours that are created with colour formulation software, and dispense micro volumes for table-top proofing. Temporary and permanent colour adjustments after dispensing can be made with colour formulation software and stored via Ink manager.
GSE will also present information about its Colorsat® modular dispensing systems for fast, accurate mixing and dispensing of flexo, gravure and screen inks for label and packaging applications. UV, aqueous and solvent inks are covered. Benefits are reduced setup times, 30 percent ink-yield improvements, a cleaner ink kitchen and better stock management. For labels, the Colorsat Switch (using exchangeable buckets) and Colorsat Match (fixed refillable storage tanks), dispense in 1kg – 10kg volumes.
