The Inkmaker SLIDER is an automatic dispensing system, ideal for UV Flexo & Offset ink.
Fully automatic and easy to operate, it requires minimal input. The operator can produce the required formulas in few simple steps and with perfect accuracy.
The SLIDER can accommodate a maximum of 18, high precision, multi stage dispensing valves, placed on two parallel rows, thus allowing dispensing in containers ranging from 1 to 20 L (minimum required Ø: 11 cm). The number of valves mounted on each equipment will be based on the actual customer’s requirements.
Valves are individually activated through pneumatic cylinders, without rotating mechanical parts or motors, making the system easy to operate. Valves’ washing is not required thanks to a special valves’ design which keeps the obturator surface always clean by closing at the same level as the flat bottom of the valve. Extremely compact and with a very limited footprint, the SLIDER comes in different layouts based on the available area.
The system is operated though a computer using Inkmaker software
Scale tare is automatically set by the computer. A weigh summary sheet is printed for each batch showing the exact batch information. The user can display or print several reports, including: dispensed formulas, job costing, production history, stock availability, etc.
Production traceability is simplified with the use of a bar-code system c/w bar-code reader and bar-code label printer. Pneumatic pumps deliver the base components to the dispensing head. Components can be stocked in containers of different size and capacity all of them fitted with built-in internal agitators.
If fitted with piston or press plate pumps the SLIDER can also be used with high viscosity products such as letterpress and offset ink, both conventional as well as UV.
