GSE Dispensing has developed an ink management system, Ink manager, intended to eliminate all aspects of ink-related waste.
The GSE Ink manager software is claimed to offer optimized ink yields through recycling press returns, as well as improved connectivity, mobility and reporting capabilities. Features include a user interface with extensive search functionalities, a job list separating work preparation and ink production, and a web interface for integration with other applications, such as ink formulation, management information and Cloud software. GSE Ink manager is supported by mobile applications that allow remote data entry and access to real-time information, facilitated by Wi-Fi connection to the ink dispenser.
GSE Ink manager also allows collection, analysis and presentation of ink-related business information. The operator can view recipe data and ink costings related to each job, and store new color specifications for recall when jobs are repeated. By storing ink batch data about every job, GSE Ink manager permits ingredient tracking through the supply chain.
GSE Ink manager is presented at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
