Multiple Ink Roller Cleaning System

The multiple ink roller cleaning system keeps colour contamination to a minimum when changing over from a dark colour, gold, silver, white, fluorescent, light resistant UV, or the like to a light colour and optimized cleaning during changeovers to improve productivity.

Ink Mist Eliminator

This machine reduces the amount of ink mist generated in the inker that is dispersed outside the press by absorbing and collecting with a special filter. This helps cut air conditioning and peripheral device maintenance, as well as reducing the need for press cleaning maintenance.
