Printing inksLitho, Grauvre, Flexo, Screen, Intaglio, Letterpress and Digital Inks are almost infinitely variable in their composition and in their behaviour on press. Getting it wrong can be very expensive and not an option when short deadlines have to be met.

Ink and substrate compatibility is critical. We offer range of testers, primarily from IGT, and strongly recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s service advice, and only use the correct and recommended consumables.

We only offer and supply genuine IGT manufactured consumables to support IGT Testing Equipment.

  • for check for picking, scumming, wet on wet printing, ink tack, missing dots
  • for digital inks – measuring contact angles dynamically during the printing process have proved very instructive and one of the few affordable ways of monitoring & comparing ink / substrate interactions
    – Dynamic Contact Angle TesterPGX+ Pocketgoniometer.
  • for monitoring inkjet print quality – scanner based systems such as the SpecPrint Analyser.

We offer spectrodensitometers to colour match with high levels of reliability and repeatability and a range of proofers for each of the different printing processes – primarily from the internationally respected market leader, IGT.
