The IDS10 and IDS35 Inplant Ink Dispensers are a smart, modular design developed with a singular purpose: to meet the highly demanding aesthetic requirements of a printing operation while accommodating the very practical functions of running an efficient business.

The many IDS installations have shown that these machines enable printed results of exceptional accuracy to be obtained – far superior to any other automated dispensing system in the industry. At the heart of the IDS10 and IDS35 dispensers, you’ll find precision manufactured dispensing valves with long life Teflon seals; accurate to +/-0.2g. With Vale-Tech Ink Manager software, you are ensured that everything you need to control colour and ink usage throughout the dispensing and colour blending process is available to you.

For printers who demand speed, accuracy and full audit trails for the dispensed product, the IDS10 and IDS35 are excellent solutions. Dispensing, mixing, and proofing functions of these machines are fully automated.

The IDS10 and IDS35 dispensers offer you considerable savings possibilities – The most obvious is the 20-45 percent cost savings in ink because you use only what you need. The speed of dispense enables you to provide ink to the press “just-in-time”, and in the actual quantity that they require. This means that there is no waste and no need to store unused product. Being fully automated, the IDS10 and IDS35 save you a large amount of production time, require less oversight, and allows you to increase your capacity to provide printing other services.
