HydroStar and CombiStar - Stable Conditions in the Inking and Dampening System.
Stable concentrations of alcohol and dampening solution additives,
clean dampening solution and constant temperatures in the printing
unit are all vital requirements for ensuring optimum print results.
HydroStar for dampening solution conditioning, CombiStar and
CombiStar Pro for integrated dampening solution conditioning
and inking unit temperature control ensure optimum conditions
throughout the run.
Frequent changes of dampening solution take up a lot of time.
With CombiStar filtration technology, the quality of the dampening
solution is improved and its service life is extended to up to
three months. CombiStar ensures that the inking unit is pre-heated
when the machine starts up and cooled during the production run.
The temperatures of the printing plate, ink and blanket are thus
always kept constant. CombiStar reduces startup and production
waste. The ink consistency remains stable, and ink zones and
dampening need to be adjusted less frequently.
CombiStar Pro is a high-end unit for particularly demanding
It meters dampening solution additives even more precisely
and incorporates an intelligent trend value analysis function to
monitor the printing process as well as a sophisticated
energy-saving mechanism. This system is particularly recommended
for UV, lowalcohol and alcohol-free applications.
