Metafix (Booth 154) is launching its Fountain Solution Control System, a closed loop monitoring and replenishment system that works in conjunction with existing offset press dampening systems.
An array of sensors monitor all key aspects of fountain solution and there feedback controls the systems replenishment module to maintain stable operating parameters. Fluctuations in conductivity and other factors are accurately and consistently monitored and controlled. Key operating parameters are read, digitized and sent via the Internet on a minute-by-minute basis to a customer specific database. Customers have full access to this information and can produce analytical data and graphical representations of their fountain solutions activity. Full flexibility allows the customers to view and display this data in a number of different ways. This ability to monitor and review the fountain solutions activity live is a critical aspect of consistent print quality.
