CRON’s inking system to be demonstrated at PRINT

GP, I don't need to see it working. I have a pretty good idea of what it can do. With more details on its internal construction etc., which probably would not be available at the show, I would be able to analyze its performance potential, strengths and weaknesses, even more.

The questions I provided were not for me. They were for the forum. For many years I have been stating that the critical problem of ink water balance was solved and that it has been tested to confirm this. IMO, it is the most critical problem with offset printing but I have found surprisingly little interest. It is possible that people don't believe me so it would be good if they can see some results from others in the industry.

If people are not interested in fundamental solutions, that is something that can not be corrected.

You may be correct in saying that it's the most critical problem, but stating that you (or anyone) can completely solve it through a change in mechanical design, is very hard to believe. I think that consumables are a significant part of the equation.

Yes, consumables are important related to the quality of how the image area is inked and how the non image area is not inked. But the amount of ink going to the image area on average is not related to the chemistry. It is basically a mechanical problem of how the ink is fed into the press.

This is not entirely true.

In knowing that you think that, I now understand why you may believe that you've completely solved the ink/water balance issue. I don't think that's possible, however, without also addressing the ink, and the water.

Correct ink/water balance is not measured or achieved, by just the amount of ink going to the image area.

I agree with you 100%
 
With very few moving parts and ink fed under pressure, EZcolor is inherently reliable, maintaining high levels of uptime for the press.

How long have you been working with one of these systems, I would be interested to hear about the system's reliability and what type of reduction of makeready times are you seeing

"The whole issue of ink control over the years has been a Stormy in a C cup, but positive ink feed will Trump that."


So now were relegated to talking politics in code?! ha

This is Curiosity. Looks like I've been hacked! I did NOT send the quoted message.

I checked your posts, prior to & since back in September, quoted here, & they all seem in order. Maybe you have a live-in gremlin that couldn't resist the temptation of using your computer to post this?

OMG! It's a Russian Bot on the Dark Web trying to undermine the integrity of the printing industry!
