Technical Consulting: Temporary Changeover of Printing Machines to Water-Based Inks
The W&H printing experts offer technical advice on how printers can temporarily switch their machines, designed for solvent-based inks, to water-based inks.
W&H printing machines can be set up for both solvent-based inks and water-based inks. For a temporary changeover between the two types of ink, mechanical parts, for example, have to be adapted. The W&H printing experts now offer a free technical consultation for customers to discuss, which adjustments are necessary for their specific machine."We also give general tips on the use of water-based inks and on the efficient cleaning process between the change," explains Markus Bauschulte, Head of Technical Sales Printing at W&H.
Switching to water-based inks is currently an interesting option for many packaging printers due to the decreasing availability of solvents and thus the rising prices of solvent-based inks.
