Operation
The IGT Orange Proofer consists of an inking section and a printing unit. Ink is applied to the top roller of the inking section and distributed within 30 seconds. The printing disc is then positioned on the top roller and, after 15 seconds of inking-in, is placed on the printing shaft. The test material is attached to the substrate carrier and placed underneath the shaft of the printing disc. The print is made automatically after the printing force has been applied.
