TRESU F10 iCon Solvent Ink Supply System Ensures Safe, Pressure-controlled Ink Circulation in CI flexo Printing Environment

Friday, April 12, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Kolding, DenmarkTRESU Group, leading supplier of flexo printing technology and printing lines, has launched the TRESU F10 iCon Ink Supply System, which offers full control of the ink circulation in central impression (CI) flexo printing machines with TRESU chambers. 

Using patented TRESU viscosity and flow control, the ink supply system ensures automatic flow and temperature control over the circulation from ink bucket to the anilox roller.  Constant viscosity ensures stable ink density on the printed substrate. Furthermore, a constant pressure prevents air mixing with ink in the anilox chamber, which can lead to blistered effects and ink starvation. Suited for both water-based and solvent inks, the TRESU F10 iCon has been developed for central impression systems, where system’s closed architecture makes monitoring and control of ink viscosity, flow, pressure and leakage a manually intensive affair during the production run. Its airtight environment allows safe handling and storage of solvent inks, in environments where solvent evaporations are likely.

Other features include automatic cleaning after each production run and touch-screen operated real-time viewing. Cleaning cycles are completed in less than a few minutes. Strokes are counted to determine when fresh ink is pumped into the system, to ensure precise amounts are dispensed to the chamber, leaving minimal residue at the end of the production run. Excess ink can be returned to the bucket for reuse, without wastage.

The F10 iCon Ink Supply System is 1000mm height x 500mm in both width and depth and has a flow range of 5 to 30 litres / minute.

Christian Fogh-Hansen, R&D Manager at TRESU, comments: “The F10 iCon Ink Supply System provides an assurance of safe, stable and controlled ink circulation in flexo printing, eliminating waste and freeing up time. This greatly boosts the potential for colour consistency and leaner print management in CI printing.”
