pumping system for digital inkwells
The new system for feeding into low pressure of machines equipped with digital ink fountains


The system consists of a pump unit installed on board the machine are able to feed the digital ink ducts of the machine with a constant pressure of 3 bar.
The traditional systems require the use of pressure reducing valves installed in the vicinity of each ink duct, connected directly to the piping system pressure in the central ink pumping. Their function is thus to decrease the ink pressure from 100 to 3 bars. Having a high AP so happens that with low ink consumption or with variations of the input pressure, the mechanism blocks, stopping the ink supply to the ink fountain. At worst, the failure of the gearbox, lets the high pressure of pumping up the ink ducts, causing expensive damage.
The ELKODIGITAL system does not provide for the use of pressure reducing valves and works in the entire pipe installed on board in a low-pressure machine. The absence of adjustment components interposed between the pump and the connection to the ink duct ensures the inflow of ink consumption in any condition. E 'with mechanical and electronic safety devices, able to stop the operation of the system in case of anomalies. A practical color touch-screen terminal 9 "allows quick and intuitive management of the system at any time by keeping the situation under control.
ELKODIGITAL can be powered with our already appreciated pumping plant ELCOLORA inks or interfaced with other existing pumping systems.

automatic ink feeder
Electronic system for the filling and automatic adjustment of the ink level in the calamio
With the EL-KO-LINK system the ink is automatically filled in compliance with the values ​​set by the operator:
Control and level adjustment are made directly from a practical color touch-screen terminal installed near the machine pulpit.
Ability to have constantly under control the whole situation "inkwells" of the machine and to be able to make changes on levels simply by selecting the desired value. The display also allows you to view the following information:
continuous display of the ink level in the machine inkwells
setting the color sequence between elements Print
enabling / disabling of each individual ink
Displaying messages on any anomalies with detailed description of the problem.
Matching the levels of control system with the ELCOLORA ink pumping plant is also possible to display:
yet the content contained in the drums / tanks in the local pumping
the consumption of the machine inks matched to each print run
Choosing the ink supplier (if any)
Due to the sensitivity and the precision of the ultrasonic sensors it is possible to work with low ink levels in the ink, always ensuring the same level set by the operator (from 10% to 90% of the capacity of the inkwell) .In addition in the case of cleaning or REPLACING color between print elements, the response time and wasted ink will be greatly reduced.
In fact, all the connections between the distribution line and accessories mounted on the ink are provided with quick couplers

ink supply system with level control (commercial, newspaper, packaging and continuous form)
ELCOLORA: simple and intelligent system automatically and plumbing - for sheet-fed offset and rotary-already widely appreciated in Italy and suimercati international- that revolutionized the distribution of color:
With conventional systems it becomes necessary to employ more expensive componentimolto compared to those used with the ELCOLORA system, which adopts piping, fittings, valves etc. the normalmenteusate type for water
considerable advantage on costs with EL-KO
negligible maintenance and low running costs for the entire plant
Another advantage on costs with EL-KO
Some key points that distinguish the EL-KO system:
pumps driven by hydraulic motor for drums and tanks
no sealing problem on the seals
Consistent print quality because constant ink level
no overflow of inkwells
ten variants of change in ink level in the ink fountain
absolute safety in setting the levels, adjustable from the control pulpit
ideal for centralized supply and for different types of ink
indication of monitor, installed on the machine, the information about the assets of the pumping station functions
installations with pipes and valves normally used for water
operating costs and realization of significantly lower compared to the system that adopts compressed air
maintenance costs negligible
tanks with integrated heating system to fluidize the ink, avoiding
so to heat the room.
They are already included in ELCOLORA software:
integrated measurement of fuel consumption per car (max 5 rotary or 12 per sheet)
of display screen of the amount of ink still in the containers
automatic stopping of the pumps when the drums or tanks are emptied
inkwells load even at a considerable distance (over 150 meters)
ELCOLORA is extremely advantageous if employed for more printing machines
EL-KO, in close collaboration with its customers, develops innovative tecnologichepiù solutions in terms of quality and service: the results of these partnerships are evidentie efforts are rewarded by the satisfaction and trust of our customers, who continue apreferire the EL-KO system . Each plant is designed, manufactured and tested c / o EL-Koin according to the needs of each client, ensuring speed, quality, safety, durability resae. The customer can view the plant in "simulated function" before suaconsegna and the installation may be performed by the same customer, behind technical istruzionedei EL-KO. Besides the traditional care, an on-line control over impiantiinstallati provides another quick support tecnico.E 'it was found by ink manufacturers that only ELCOLORA, are not inalcun way altered the features, the homogeneity and the structure ink itself.

The customer satisfaction is the best advertisement
Prior agreements and appointment, EL-KO offers the opportunity to view an installation in operation.
