Esiproof Manual Proofer

The Esiproof Manual Proofer is a precision instrument for producing realistic, high-quality flexographic proofs. These proofs are then used for the customer's approval of the color and for spectrophotometer readings. Use of a doctor blade enables the proofing of all flexo inks, including high viscosity, UV-curing inks. Its steel and ceramic anilox rollers are readily interchangeable.

Features

  • Single screen and double- or triple-banded ceramic anilox rollers available
  • All commercial inks and substrates can be accurately proofed
  • Compact size makes it ideal for on-site troubleshooting

Operation

The Esiproof consists of a precision-engineered unit into which the anilox roller, EPDM stereo roller and doctor blade are easily positioned. The substrate to be proofed is then placed on a flat, hard surface. With a pipette, a few drops of ink are dropped into the ink reservoir which is formed by the doctor blade. The unit is then pulled over the substrate to produce a proof. Proofs up to 1 meter long and 70mm wide can be made.
