Ink Handling and Care at Press-Side
Poor Ink handling/practices at press-side can affect print consistency and efficiencies.
Below are pictures of ink containers and ink pump containers that are left uncovered.
Solvent blends flash off and evaporate due to increased temperature in pressroom could affect optimum viscosity therefore changing print conditions such as dot gain, clean print and adhesion that result in waste and press downtime. Ink containers and ink pump containers should be covered at all times except when being used for refilling or disposing.
