IGT F1 Printability Tester for Flexo and Gravure

The well-known IGT F1 printability tester is now available with a multi-color option. This completely new feature makes it possible to compare two colors/inks in one print. This new application can be used for e.g.:
• Color comparison: to compare same inks from different batches.
• Ink comparison: to compare different inks on the same substrate under identical conditions.

Mini Vacuum Mixer

Myers has developed a small batch, single shaft mini vacuum mixer to help simplify the R&D stages of formulating. The mini-mixer is available in one, two and three quart sizes. The shaft and blade are made of 304 stainless steel and the machined lid is complete with a mechanical seal for vacuum operation if necessary. The unit is excellent for formulation trials and small run batches. It reduces raw material waste, removes air bubbles and maximizes material strength, eases the cleanup process, provides fast, uniform mixing and provides quick incorporation of powders into liquids. Single or dual shaft available. Optional temperature controls can increase overall flexibility.

Twin Head ColorPoint Ink Dispensing System

Rexson has launched the 'Twin Head' ColorPoint ink dispensing system. The main advantage of the ‘Twin Head’ is a significantly lower capital outlay than two separate dispensing systems, with no reduction in output performance or output. The system can dispense two technologies at the same time (i.e., NC and PVB inks) or one base range at double the normal output.
