Lean Inking Technology

Every production manager in the narrow web printing industry knows the advantages and disadvantages of open and closed inking systems on flexo presses. MPS has developed an effective chamber inking system, combining the advantages of the open and closed systems at the same time.

Lean Inking technology by MPS enables circulatory ink filling from the ink bucket placed on the service side of the printing unit. This innovative technology eliminates ink spitting or misting even at very high printing speeds. This chamber technology provides low ink make ready, very quick ink colour changes, and extremely quick wash-up.

Lean Inking has the following benefits:

  • No ink spitting or misting
  • Auto ink level control, ensuring trouble free ink management
  • Reduced ink content in the system
  • Positive doctor blade positioning; diminishing wear of doctor blades
  • Automatic pressure control; no need for readjusting doctor blades during operation
  • No ink leaking during machine stand-still
