TITLE: BOTTLE TYPE
To be able to use used bottles in SPININK, must they be some special type of bottles?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

ALL types of ink bottles, commercialized in the world, can be used with SPININK without any type of problem.

Thanks to the special adjustable design of its supports, any type of bottle will be perfectly fixed and ready for use.

SPININK agitates the ink by rotation. This means that it does not vibrate or hit the bottles, so the integrity of the container is always guaranteed.

The only requirement is the size of the ink bottle; it must fit inside SPINKINK.

TITLE: PROCESSIING TIME?
How long does it take to shake the ink to be in perfect condition?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

With SPININK, the ink stirring and tempering process is very fast.

Obviously, it depends on the state of the ink. Basically, it depends on how long it has been stored.

Between 2 and 4 hours, it will be enough to leave the ink as if it were newly manufactured. In addition, in that time you will also have reached the optimum temperature for use.

TITLE: EXTEND TIME
Is it dangerous to exceed the indicated time?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

NOT. There is no problem because the ink is stirring longer.

The ink bottles can remain even days inside SPININK, without representing any problem.

TITLE: WHY SHAKE THE INKS?
Why is it important to shake the ink before using it in the printer? What are the consequences of not doing it?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

The vast majority of ink manufacturers recommend on their packaging labels that the ink be shaken before loading it into the printer.

Most inks contain pigments (organic or inorganic) in addition to other chemical compounds such as dispersants, defoamers, deflocculants, etc.

Over the weeks, during its storage period, the properties of the dispersant are reduced and this causes the pigment particles to fall towards the bottom of the bottle.

Recovering the state of suspension and dispersion of the pigment is the main reason for stirring the ink before using it in the printer.

If the ink is not shaken before use, four fundamental problems occur:

  • Much of the pigment remains in the bottom of the bottle. Pigment is what gives color to ink and is the most expensive element in ink. If it stays in the bottle, we are paying for nothing.
  • The fact that the ink has less pigment, makes the printing tone lighter, and therefore we need to use more ink to have the same tone.
  • The change in tone produced by the least amount of pigment, will make us have to adjust the designs we are printing, with all the expense that this entails.
  • As deflocculant loses its chemical properties, the pigment particles are grouped together, forming larger nodules that can easily clog the nozzles of the heads.

TITLE: TEMPERATURE
SPININK machines only heat the ink, or can it also cool it?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

SPINKINK machines are only prepared to heat the ink to the selected temperature.

We must bear in mind that to avoid the degradation and sedimentation of the inks, they must be stored at a controlled temperature. That is why SPININK does not have the ability to cool the ink.

However, most inks are applied at a temperature of around 45 degrees centigrade in printers.

Therefore, it is very important that at the same time that the ink is stirred, it is tempered to the appropriate temperature for the printer, to avoid thermal shocks.

Thermal shocks produce changes in tone

TITLE: MIX BOTTLES
Can different bottles models be mixed during the shaking process?

[21/05/2020] ANSWER:

YES.

There are 3 SPININK models. The V0 and V1 models are dedicated to be able to shake complete boxes of ink. Both have 4 shelves, where you place the ink boxes. You can quickly adjust the size of each shelf to suit the needs of the boxes. On each shelf, all boxes must be the same during the stirring process.

The Mini SPININK model is focused for the end user. In this model, there are 4 supports that you can individually adjust in height and width. So, during the same cycle, you can have 1 liter bottles, mixed with 2 liter bottles, and also with 5 liter bottles. The arrangement of the supports is fully configurable and the adjustment task is carried out in less than 2 minutes.
