Brummen, The Netherlands: GSE presents its ink dispensing and management software solutions for standardizing colour quality and cutting waste in label and packaging printing at Labelexpo Southeast Asia, at the booth of its distributor, Techno Global Graphics (stand C4, 9-11 February 2023, BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand).
“Good management of ink and colour-making processes is vital for lessening the impact of rising operating costs that label printers are facing in this tough trading climate,” says Onno Deen, area sales manager, GSE.
“Ink dispensing systems, for preparing accurate brand shades in precise quantities, give you repeatable colour quality on-demand, without wasteful remakes – dramatically cutting ink consumption and material loss. Additionally, software programs are automating just about every ink-related processes in the print workflow, from purchasing to reusing inks, to batch tracing – cutting costs even further and potentially shortening lead-times.”
GSE’s program of modular Colorsat ink dispensers cut out waste, errors and delay in colour preparation - potentially reducing ink usage by up to 30%. They are tailored to volume and application needs – including from label, flexible packaging, carton and corrugated board printing.
The GSE Colorsat ink dispensers are available for UV, LED-UV, low-migration, water-based and solvent ink sets, and flexo, gravure and screen processes. They feature exchangeable pumps and valves, and may optionally incorporate accessories, such as agitators and heaters, for optimally conditioning inks that supply the dispensing unit. Their modular design allows easy adaptation for handling new ink sets or reformulated inks.
A highlight of the GSE product showcase at the Techno Global Graphics booth is the tabletop Colorsat FCS manual dispenser, ideal for small-scale dispensing.
