AUTOWASH pumping and automatic cleaning

DRASTIC REDUCTION OF WASHING TIMES IN COLOR CHANGE WASHING CYCLE DESCRIPTION

AUTOWASH wash cycle

  • Ink pumping to the chamber, return by gravity
  • Suction of ink and returning into ink bucket
  • Washing-up with clean solvent
  • Suction of washing-up solvent and returning to the common collector
  • Dirty solvent collector draining

AUTOMATIC WASH-UP:
CHANGING OVER TIME REDUCTION
CONTROL OVER THE INK VARIABLES FOR ANY TYPE OF FLEXO PRESS USING CLOSED CHAMBER SYSTEM

The operation of the pumping and washing equipment autowash, is based on the use of a reversible pneumatic pump for each printing unit. Pneumatic double-pumping systems have serious regulation problems of the synchronism between pumping and suctioning units.

This technical solution allows, by this apparent simplicity, an extremely efficient and trouble-free operation.

The equipment provides total integration for the lr.products) ink control systems, including all possible options.
