Advance your printing precision with high-class solutions for drop watching, wetting improvement, and solid surface analysis

We invite you to our booth 428 where our highlights focus on measurement, analysis and quality control in industrial inkjet printing.

Maximize printing precision

Drop Shape Analyzer – DSA Inkjet
Sophisticated optical system

 

Optimize your inks as well as your overall printing process. The Drop Shape Analyzer – DSA Inkjet incorporates intuitive tools for setting printing parameters and a highly innovative optical system for analyzing the resulting jet stream of ink droplets.

The DSA Inket offers unprecedented opportunities for filming the drop flight live, automatically analyzing the drops, and obtaining result parameters that are relevant for the print quality. The data is generated as immediate feedback on the dynamically adjustable waveform and is particularly suitable for checking an ink or optimizing the printing process. Easy-to-create automation programs also enable measurements under repeatable conditions to test ink formulations in a standardized manner.

Optimize wettability

Force Tensiometer – K100

Analyze and understand the wetting properties of your inks. The Force Tensiometer – K100 is comprised of high-quality components and a wide range of methods to carry out various tests in the field of liquid analysis and wetting measurements to better understand your ink formulation.

The instrument uses a special force sensor with a particularly high resolution in order to obtain reliable measurements, for example for determining surface and interfacial tension or contact angle. To ensure accurate measuring results, we use measuring probes with highly accurate shapes. This guarantees an exact correlation between measured force and the surface or interfacial tension.

The K100 measuring methods run with pre-prepared templates that standardize the fully automated procedures down to the smallest detail, thus providing maximum repeatability.

Understand your surfaces

Determine the wettability of your pretreated or coated material in no time at all using our Mobile Surface Analyzer – MSA with its Liquid Needle dosing technology.

The Liquid Needle turns the once laborious contact angle technique into an ultra-fast quality control method. The MSA uses it to measure the surface free energy (SFE), which is a perfect indicator for the wettability of the surface by aqueous or organic liquids and far more reliable than test inks. Measurements using templates and automated dosing of test liquids ensure operator-independent results, which can be automatically evaluated using predefined limits.

Our MSA analyzes samples of any size, such as automobile bodies. It provides accurate values even for vertical, overhead, and slightly convex samples. The handy instrument can also detect residues of cleaning agents and is capable of doing 1,000 material tests per cartridge charge.
