The FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber doctor blade is a light, fast-change inking system for narrow-web UV and water-based flexo applications that can be used without an ink pump.
Patented seals ensure chambers are air-tight and prevent leakage, and can be installed or removed safely in five seconds without the risk of spilling ink. To introduce the unit to its mounting, the operator locks it to the anilox roll, and rotates it from a six-o’clock to a nine-o’clock position. Removal reverses the process.
Doctor blades are in a pre-set position, and there is no need for further adjustment. The pre-set position ensures optimal anilox contact with minimal wear. An automatic indicator shows when blade replacement is necessary, so time is not wasted on unnecessary checks.
The chamber can hold 250ml–2000ml of ink, making it ideal for the application of normal and spot colours, as well as high ink transfer printing. Ink may be added manually without stopping the press, giving the system flexibility for long and short run production.
Since the chambers are sealed, there is no risk of ink contamination and optimal pressure is maintained, to ensure foam-free printing and an even ink coverage across the web. The chamber maintains precise inking even at the high speeds demanded by narrow-web printers. Available in widths up to 800mm, the TRESU FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber may be fitted to almost any narrow web press.
For those using manual filling, the chambers can be removed and sealed so that ink can be reused. As the unit features a single compartment, manual cleaning is fast and easy.
