Highlights will include the Colorsat Compact dispensing system, the Evolution Series Perfect Proofer and the Colorclean Indigo bucket washer. Maarten Hummelen, marketing director, GSE Dispensing, comments, “As packaging and label printers face the pressure to become more flexible and offer shorter production runs and lead times, driving waste out of the process becomes a top priority. The theme of our drupa stand, ‘Think Lean!’ emphasizes that GSE Dispensing’s solutions are integral to a safe, efficient print workflow, in which human talent is free to focus on creative work.”
GSE’s Colorsat range of modular dispensing systems mix and dispense inks, to precise quality and quantity specifications, in minutes. The dispensers cater for UV, water-based and solvent-based inks. Offering fast installation, easy use and maintenance, the dispensing programme offers reduced setup times, ink-yield increases of over 30% due to easy reuse of press-return inks, a cleaner color mixing environment and better stock management. A highlight at the stand will be an integrated dispensing and mixing system, featuring the Colorsat Compact dispenser and the improved Colormix mixer, suited for higher volume packaging applications.
The redesigned and fully-automated Colorclean drum and bucket washers are an easy and efficient way of cleaning containers used to store inks. Water is forced through a series of rotary brushes that clean the inside and outside of the containers. Moreover, GSE will showcase the new Colorclean Indigo bucket washer, with minimal water consumption, as an integral part of the ink logistics workflow.
GSE Dispensing has also strengthened its commitment to safe working environments for solvent-based ink users, by becoming the first supplier of dispensing components with IECEx explosion-proof certification. The company will also exhibit earthing solutions for conducting static electricity from containers and inks.
