Turkish Gravure Printer Saves 40% of Ink

Though it has been known for years it still surprises many manufacturing operations at the incredible savings that a good viscosity control system can provide. A certain printer in Istanbul has a 6 station gravure press using solvent based ink. The operator used to mix 5 containers of ink for each days work, now he only needs 3. He is happy, their quality is up and their ink costs are down 40%.
