Advanced ink supply system

Tresu’s new F10 iCon pump features patented viscosity and flow control, as well as temperature control over the ink as it circulates from ink bucket to anilox roller.

Tresu’s new F10 iCon pump features patented viscosity and flow control, as well as temperature control over the ink as it circulates from ink bucket to anilox roller. This maintains a constant viscosity to ensure stable ink density on the printed substrate, and constant pressure and flow to stop air mixing with ink in the anilox chamber, preventing blistering and ink starvation.

Air tightness allows safe handling and storage of solvent inks in environments where solvent evaporations are likely, the company adds.

Other features include automatic cleaning after each production run and touchscreen operated real-time viewing. Cleaning cycles are completed "in less than a few minutes". Strokes are counted to determine when fresh ink is pumped into the system, to ensure precise amounts are dispensed to the chamber, leaving minimal residue at the end of the production run. Excess ink can be returned to the bucket for reuse, without wastage.

The F10 iCon ink supply system is 1,000mm high x 500mm in both width and depth and has a flow range of 5-30 litres/min.
