InkDock™ supply system for reflow inkjet printheads

InkDock by IACS

InkDock™ from IACS is a highly compact and versatile ink supply system for industrial inkjet printheads that have reflow or fluid recirculation architecture. Recent inkjet heads use recirculation to eliminate the build-up of air bubbles and pigment sediment around nozzle

openings, vastly improving their reliability and minimising production down-time. Reliable jetting is particularly important in single-pass printing.

InkDock™ intelligently maintains user-defined meniscus pressure, flow rate and fluid temperature, with absolute precision. Settings are easily adjusted via its web-enabled interface (LAN or secured WAN). InkDock™ can drive a reflow print head in various orientations, including horizontal, vertical and skyscraper modes. The print head can be integrated next to, or at a distance from InkDock™. Optimised jetting performance with a wide variety of inks and head positions is ensured in all cases by its extensive range of operating temperatures and pressures. Oil, water, solvent and UV-based inks with viscosities ranging between 5 and 40  mPaS are supported by InkDock™, which can also handle abrasive inks.

InkDock™ is robustly constructed with industry-proven components. IACS supplies InkDock™ in two forms – a print-ready, customer-defined version as in the above photo, complete with print head, drive electronics and fluid reservoir (blue zones in photo), or solely the recirculating ink supply system (grey zone in photo) for easy integration with customers’ own peripheral equipment. In the latter form, InkDock™ measures only L250 x H200 x W100mm.

See InkDock™ and speak IACS’ technical experts at The Inkjet Conference, Dusseldorf, on 24-25th October 2017.
