The next K show, which will take place from 19-26 October 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, will be an opportunity for Gama International to meet converters from all over the world and to present its new updated Gama viscometers line. “Climate change made us reflect on the increased need for cool inks,” says Sante Conselvan, managing director at Gama International. “We have therefore improved the heat exchangers of our viscometers, which are now able to cool or heat the inks faster.”
Gama products are all made in Italy and boast quality certifications, such as IQNET, CSQ, ATEX and the IECEx international certificate. They include viscometers for flexo and rotogravure printing, ink treatment and print control technologies.
The CCSone – Consumption Control System has been recently launched on the market as part of the Gama ink treatment line. It is an innovative and indispensable product that can detect ink consumption in real-time through an interface physically connected to the ink container, generating information about ink consumption and the ink level during the printing process.
CCSone is suitable for both flexo and rotogravure printing processes, and its operating principle is based on controlling and measuring the pressure inside the container or basin. In addition to ink, applications include cold seal, glow, varnish lacquer and adhesive materials.
“This product has aroused considerable interest since, thanks to the data it generates on the consumption of individual inks, it can be inserted into the corporate data flow, managed with an ERP system, with the advantage of keeping the entire packaging production process under control,” explains Dario Calvalcoli, marketing manager at Gama International. Besides calculating the total ink consumption per product, the system also provides consumption data in a printed meter. This information helps calculate the ink needed for a similar job regarding colors but with a different print run.
Gama International to showcase its Sleeve Storage System at K 2022
Gama International also offers a renewed solution for the storage of sleeves, anilox and plates to flexo printers and converters – the Sleeve Storage System. The intralogistics solution consists of an automatic or manual Sleeve Storage System that minimizes the manual operations of the sleeve handling staff, thanks to an automatism for the collection/deposit of the sleeves.
“Gama International will welcome all visitors at its stand D12 at Hall 4. Our mission is to be close to converters and to listen to their needs, for whom we always work to implement our products,” says Elisa Conselvan, communications manager at Gama International.
