A.W.T.'s Press-Mate™ Ink Feeding System dispenses controlled amounts of conventional or U.V. inks and coatings to any press for uninterrupted production.
Affix the feed tubes to your press and the system will relay inks and coatings when and where you want them in properly measured amounts. To change colors, simply open up the chamber, take out the container of ink, and replace it with a different color. Ink flow is controlled either manually by foot pedal, or automatically by variable adjustable ink control valve system. Since the feed tubes are in air-tight chambers, the Press-Mate requires very little clean-up.
Both manual or automatic Press-Mate units come standard with a regulator valve and pressure gauge, three 10-foot-long tubes for ink feeding, pressure chamber and cover, and air motor. Depending on the model, the unit will handle most any size and shape container up to 5 gallons (19 liters).
