Printing ink is an important material used for printing, and it presents the pattern and text on the substrates by printing . Inks consist of main components and auxiliary components. Through even mixing and repeated rolling, it comes a viscosity slurry. It consisted of pigments, binders, additives and solvents etc. It is widely used for various kinds of printing such as books, newspapers, packaging bags, building decoration materials etc
Printing ink categories
According to printing plate type, it mainly can be divided into flexographic ink, offset ink, gravure ink, screen printing ink etc.
According to the solvents used, it can be divided into water-based ink, UV curing ink, water-based UV ink
Abster has a long history of providing printing ink equipment, and has supplied equipment and turnkey project for a number of well-known printing ink companies. We have rich experience in coating production and mastered the technology of powder and liquid automatic feeding system, color paste tinting system, automatic filling system and automatic control system, and unmanned production system is feasible. At the same time, we have also made an outstanding breakthrough in the field of grinding. Up to now we have developed many new grinding machines which significantly improve the grinding fineness and efficiency. We provide not only equipment, but also the whole plant delivery, engineering design service, factory renovation, production expansion, project management consulting services, scheme design services to solves the difficulties in printing ink production thoroughly.
Main Equipment and Function Introduction
Disperser: For pre-dispersing inks, various kinds and specifications are optional. With full specification from lab to production ones. Wall scraper type disperser, vacuum type disperser, butterfly type dual shaft disperser, platform type disperser etc. are available to meet various dispersing requirements.
Basket mill: A ink grinding equipment, it integrates dispersing and grinding two processes into one machine. It reduces production process and also without pump nor valve, so it improves production efficiency and reduces material waste. Besides, it is easy to clean, which makes it is very suitable for production requirements of many different kinds of products in small volume.
Horizontal Beads Mill: A wet milling machine used for grinding materials with higher final fineness requirements. It is with excellent grinding result and high efficiency. It is the most widely used milling machines in the market including Disc type Horizontal Beads Mill and All-round Horizontal Beads Mill.
Tri-roller mill: Specially for grinding inks with high viscosity. It can be divided into common type and hydraulic type. It is an ideal equipment for grinding inks. .
Printing Ink Mixer: According to the different process and material properties of ink (viscosity, density, etc.), there are various kinds and specifications of the mixer is optional, including vacuum, explosion-proof, one shaft, dual shaft and three shaft, and planetary mixer for high viscosity ink
According to different process and material properties (viscosity, density, etc.), Mixers with various kinds and specifications are optional, including vacuum type, explosion-proof type, one shaft type, dual shaft type, three shaft type and planetary mixer for high-viscosity inks etc..
Ink Filling Machine: Packaging specifications ranges from 0.5 Kg to 20 Kg, suitable for filling plastic and metal pails, including semi-automatic and fully automatic type. It also can be customized.
Ink Production Line: The whole line can be the combination of all single machines or automatic product line with advanced production technology including materials feeding system, measuring system, horizontal beads mil land tri-roll grinding system, multi-functional mixing system, automatic control system, automatic filling system etc.. The whole system line can be customized based on ink category and production requirements.
Powder and Liquid Delivery Systems: powder pneumatic conveying (positive pressure, negative pressure, dense phase, dilute phase), mechanical conveyor (spiral, belts, bucket, etc.); liquid positive pressure and negative pressure conveying, pumping.
Powder, Liquid Batching System: including “incremental method”, “decrement method”, “volume method” and other batching methods.
