Viscosity controllers

Viscosity controllers

(For viscosity measurement and temperature control)

Swiss-made viscosity measurement and temperature control systems for water and solvent based inks. The values of various parameters are measured direcly in the ink supply line of the printing unit. This viscosity controller works on the dropping body measurement principle. The Fasnacht viscosity controler also has an efficient cleaning system, which ensures that the measuring unit and supply line can be cleaned automatically.
Manufactured by: Fasnacht Dynamics AG, Switzerland


The purchase decisions of the modern-day FMCG consumer is dependant largely on the print quality of the packaging material. Uneven colour shades on the printed substrate is a commonly occurring phenomenon, resulting in low quality printed material - which might influence a buyer negatively. Ink viscosity plays a vital role in ensuring uniform colour shades across the printing substrate. Consistent printing and optimum use of ink and solvents can be realised only with stable viscosity.
