automatic and hydraulic ink feed system for sheet-fed and web offset machines (commercial, newspapers, business form and packaging)
A system wholly created and projected by EL-KO for automatic and hydraulic ink feed . An easy and clean use, energy saving, simple function, has changed the way of ink dispensing widely appreciated in Italy and foreign markets.
Main characteristic is the low working pressure, (with a consequent cut of realization costs) with piping and valves as normally used for water. A significant lower operating costs in comparison to the pneumatic system and a negligible maintenance cost, complete the advantages of this innovative system.
ELCOLORA is extremely profitable if used for more printing machines.
This system renders also a good and constant print quality, due to its characteristics.
Other advantages and technical characteristics are:
the use of hydraulic pumps for drums and containers extremely profitable for central feeding and for different types of ink loading of ink fountains also at a great distance
Further, the software allows to measure ink consumption for each printing, to visualize container rest quantity on the display and the automatic stop of pumps when drums and tanks are empty.
Moreover the system allows an absolute safety as to ink level regulation , controlled on main control desk.
Several ink manufacturers have verified that only with Elcolora system the structure, consistence and homogeneity of ink are not altered thus excluding eventual separation of ink components.
