The Electronic Ink Tester measures the apparent tack of printing ink. This is under conditions closely approximating the dynamic conditions of the ink-distribution system of a printing press. Thus, the testing instrument provides the highest accuracy. Therefore ensures efﬁciency for R&D and quality control.
The Electronic Ink tester measures the integrated forces involved in ink ﬁlm splitting. And the effects of roller speed, ﬁlm thickness, temperature and solvent evaporation.
The Inkometer 1100 multi-line display shows the temperature, tack, roller speed and test time. Exporting of track readings is to the RS-232 port. Moreover, the integrated printer or to a USB ﬂash drive. The display directly shows the statistical reports. The Inkometer provides four test methods based on ASTM D-4361. Similarly, five user conﬁgurable methods which can be found in non-volatile memory.
