To achieve consistent print quality in flexographic printing, systematic color management is essential. To this end, it is very important to ensure an optimal ink flow in the cycle between ink containers and printing unit, so that


  • there is always fresh ink circulating
  • no deposits are created
  • air can escape from the doctor blade chamber
  • and the cells of the anilox roller are evenly filled with ink.

AkeBoose ink handling systems are developed to support an efficient ink supply and return, which is beneficial for a smooth printing operation.
