Ink Agitator is a one piece design that uses two
agitating arms to constantly agitate the ink in the
agitating arms are stainless and are designed to be removed
from the agitator bar in seconds and require no gears or
rack. The most apparent advantage to this new design is the
versatility of the installation enabling the bar to be
positioned almost anywhere above, in front or below the
fountain therefore allowing the pressmen full access to the
fountain at all times. The typical application for this
design is with UV and conventional inks as well as metallic
addition to the versatility of bar location another
significant advantage to our arm design is it’s capability
to force ink up against the fountain roller on every pass.
More and more printers are having issues with ink separation
from the roller and this new design completely eliminates
this problem. Another advantage is the flexibility of the
stainless steel arms allowing the customer to tweek and move
the arms to the desired positions as per their needs.
heart of the FlowTech Ink Agitator is a patented, rodless
double band pneumatic cylinder. The inner sealing band
creates a tight metal-to-metal seal while the outer band
keeps ink and dust away from the sealing band. This low
profile agitator (1.5” x 1.5”) requires no electricity,
includes a speed controller and is designed with the
pressman’s safety in mind. Should anything interfere with
the movement of the agitating carrier bracket, it will
simply reverse direction preventing any potential accident.
Agitator arms remove in seconds for easy cleaning.
