Bulk Ink System for Mimaki Printers
Further broadening its ink portfolio within the digital wide-format sector, Sun Chemical Screen is introducing its S-Tech bulk ink feed system, which was developed specifically for installation on the Mimaki JV3 range of inkjet printers.
S-Tech is an easy-to-fit ancillary system that gives Mimaki JV3 users the freedom to adopt Sun Chemical Screen's range of Streamline solvent digital inks.
The S-Tech system can be fitted by a press operator, installing it is a straightforward process that does not require modifications to either the hardware or software in the press. S-Tech incorporates a sensor to ensure ink delivery is kept at a constant level and carefully controls the ink reservoir levels to give consistent ink pressure on the print heads.
Tony Cox, digital business and marketing manager, Sun Chemical Screen, said: "Approximately 8,000 printers in Europe use Mimaki JV3 presses and could benefit from adopting the S-Tech bulk feed system. It offers a cost-effective alternative to purchasing the original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) pre-filled cartridges. As well as reducing the printer's outlay on consumables, S-Tech reduces down-time as the large-capacity 600ml ink tanks can be topped up on the run, even while the printer is in operation. This can significantly increase productivity. What is the point of having a high-speed digital press installed if you have to stop it running to refill the ink? S-Tech provides a highly practical solution to maintaining this machine up-time.
"Printers often don't realise there are alternative products available in the market and often believe that swapping consumables is too risky or complicated," continued Cox. "With products like S-Tech bulk feed system, Sun Chemical Screen makes the process of changing ink suppliers safe, fast and financially beneficial. In addition, the printer will enjoy a long-term partnership with the largest and most-established producer of inks and pigments in the world."
