Arteks installs GSE Colorsat Compact ink dispensing system
Arteks, a major Russian wallcovering manufacturer, has installed a Colorsat Compact High ink dispensing system from GSE Dispensing, in order to ensure repeatable quality, instant availability of water-based gravure colours in high volumes, and minimised waste at its new, rapidly expanding St. Petersburg plant. The installation is GSE’s 100th in Russia.

Originally a distributor of wallcovering since 2004, Arteks decided to begin manufacturing, to meet growing demand in Russia and former Soviet Union states, in a market with relatively few large suppliers. The company’s purpose-built 14000 square metres factory will have a combine annual output of approximately 28 million rolls of wallcovering by 2019, when the last of six Olbrich printing presses will be installed.

Supplied by four 1000-litre base containers for binders and eight 200-litre pigment barrels, the GSE Colorsat Compact dispensing system has the speed and capacity to manage the colour requirements of all six presses once they are fully operational. This is expected to be 1.8 tonnes of water-based colorants and binders, and up to 120 dispensing cycles of 50 kg batches, per day.

The Colorsat Compact High dispensing system’s capability for high-speed dispensing keeps setup times at a minimum. A four-component recipe of 175kg is ready within ten minutes; GSE’s intuitive ink management software enables fast, automated calculation of batch sizes and storage of recipes, for instant recall without data entry, when repeat orders are requested. Dispensing accuracy of 1g not only reduces ink waste but also ensures colour targets are met. Waste is significantly reduced as the dispenser allows inks returned from previous production runs to be reused in new jobs.

The installation includes an integrated semi-automatic Colormix blender to mix the ink batch after dispensing. The Compact is extendible and can accommodate up to 34 components. Also installed is a stand-alone IBC blender, to mix inks in the containers and prevent heavier particles from sinking to the bottom of the mixture.

GSE’s ink management software will eventually connect with Arteks’s ERP system, to facilitate efficient ordering of ink stocks. Since the installation, the Colorsat Compact has been supplying the ink requirements of two Olbrich printing lines, which has a daily water-based ink consumption of 700kg water-based colorants and binders. The five operators who are currently trained to use the dispenser and software report a fast learning curve. (GK)
