CMYK Distributors, Inc. Adds Sajo Technologies Ink Can Dispenser to Product Line-Up

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Weymouth, MA – CMYK Distributors, Inc., the exclusive North American distributor of Digital Information’s InkZone product line and the DJet double-sided imposition proofer, as well as the exclusive U.S. distributor of the Filter Klear Fountain Filtration System by CECO Environmental, today announces the addition of the Ink Can Dispenser by Sajo Technologies to its product offerings.  

The Ink Can Dispenser is a press frame mounted dispenser which allows printers to automatically pump ink into the ink fountain using existing ink cans.  The Ink Can Dispenser allows printers to pump UV or conventional ink from their existing 2.5 kg or 5.0 kg plastic or metal ink cans directly into the ink fountain while maintaining an even and accurate ink distribution.  Through the use of stainless steel manifold over the fountain and an ultrasonic sensor, the ink level in the fountain is controlled to within .375.”

The Ink Can Dispenser mounts directly and easily to the press frame, sitting on top of the unit or attached to the side of the frame.  It includes a follower plate that can handle either straight or tapered wall cans.  The EPDM seal wipes the side walls clean as it lowers leaving less than 1% ink waste.  

“CMYK Distributors is North America’s leading distributor of solutions that bring automation and waste reduction technology to the commercial printing and packaging industries,” said Mark Williams, CMYK Distributors’ Director of Sales.  “The Ink Can Dispenser is a perfect enhancement to our product offerings.  This innovative, unparalleled solution significantly reduces ink waste.  We are confident that the Ink Can Dispenser will quickly become an indispensable solution for any printing company looking to cut costs, increase environmental sustainability, and enhance efficiencies.”

Color changes, whether UV to conventional or between units, are simple and quick by easily moving the wet end component assembly (follower plate, hose, and tube) through the use of a quick release pin and air hose.  Once removed, the assembly can be transferred freely.  

With the follower plate in position, the wet end assembly seals the ink from the elements allowing the ink can to remain in the dispenser indefinitely.  As the ink is consumed, an indicator light shows full, low, or empty can status at all times minimizing the risk of a fountain running dry.

Features and benefits include: 

  • Handles 2.5 kg or 5.0 kg UV or conventional ink cans
  • Uses existing metal or plastic, tapered or straight-walled cans
  • Mounts on top or side of press frame
  • 1”stainless manifold with even flow nozzles to control ink flow

  • Quick changes from UV to conventional ink
  • Full, low, and empty status alarm lights
  • Small footprint (9.5” x 10”)
  • Sliding door minimizes frame usage
  • Lightweight aluminum construction
  • Painted to match press color
  • Super flex EPDM hose allows for a multitude of installation options
