Sun Chemical Introduces New Water-Based Flexo Dispenser Program for Narrow Web Printers

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Printers can Make Process, Blending Bases and Spot Colors from the Same Dispenser 

PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Narrow web tag and label printers that use water-based flexo inks can now decrease their overall bottom-line operating expenses in ink volume and ink costs by up to 25 percent with the new Sun Chemical Water-Based Flexo Dispenser Program.

The newest version of Sun Chemical’s highly successful Dispenser Program for commercial and NWTL printers, allows NWTL printers to mix exactly the amount of water-based flexo inks that they need, reduce their inventory and waste, improve color-matching consistency, and significantly decrease total operating costs.

The water-based flexo dispenser is unique in that it can make process, blending bases and spot colors all from the same machine. Color concentrates and technology extenders can be dispensed to make inks for more than one application, providing printers the flexibility to control color density and compensate for various anilox configurations.

“In the narrow web market, printers are looking for versatility—the ability to make process, spot and blending bases all on the same dispenser,” said Brian Breidigan, Vice President, Product Manager Commercial, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “Our water-based dispenser program does that and more. The dispenser brings a small footprint to the pressroom, and customers can participate in the program at no risk or additional cost for upkeep. More importantly, it can save printers a significant amount of money by reducing inventory and waste.”

NWTL printers that participate in the program will receive a dispensing unit along with color repeatability and accuracy with 0.5 gram accuracy of all process, spot and blending base colors. The dispensing unit is provided to the printer at no cost through a minimum annual purchase of Sun Chemical products.
