The Sajo Ink agitators is available in either a one or two piece design and uses either two agitating arms or two rotating cones.
The agitating arms are stainless and are designed to be removed from the agitator bar in seconds and require no gears or rack. The most apparent advantage to this new design is the versatility of the installation enabling the bar to be positioned almost anywhere above, in front or below the fountain therefore allowing the pressmen full access to the fountain at all times. The typical application for this design is with UV and conventional inks as well as metallic flexo
In addition to the versatility of bar location another significant advantage to our arm design is it’s capability to force ink up against the fountain roller on every pass. More and more printers are having issues with ink separation from the roller and this new design completely eliminates this problem. Another advantage is the flexibility of the stainless steel arms allowing the customer to tweek and move the arms to the desired positions as per their needs.
The stainless steel rotating cones run on a rack and pinion design and are also made to be easily removed for cleaning purposes as well as being easily adjustable. Like the agitating arms, the cone design is also flexible when it comes to mounting possibilities however not to the same degree as the arms. The typical application for this design is with magnetic inks as well as UV and conventional inks.
The heart of the Sajo Ink Agitator is a patented, rodless double band pneumatic cylinder. The inner sealing band creates a tight metal-to-metal seal while the outer band keeps ink and dust away from the sealing band. This low profile agitator (1.5” x 1.5”) requires no electricity, includes a speed controller and is designed with the pressman’s safety in mind. Should anything interfere with the movement of the agitating carrier bracket, it will simply reverse direction preventing any potential accident. Agitator arms remove in seconds for easy cleaning.
