Metafix - Model FSCS - Fountain Solution Control System
Press operators deal with constant challenges on the press. Despite all the technology, printing is a modern alchemy performed by craftsmen. We know that every press is different. They all have their own characteristics and idiosyncrasies. It is well know that, if fountain solution is not properly mixed and monitored that problems can arise on press causing waste. Proportioners have proven to be unreliable and re-circulator instrumentation often needs to be recalibrated which results in inaccurate readings. If your proportioner is unreliable, your readings are inaccurate and there is no data logging in place, how can you be confident of the quality of fountain solution that is being sent to press?.
Metafix systems enhance the ability to properly manage fountain solution, silicone and CTP developer with accurate and dependable mixing, repurposing or treating waste and providing production data online.
If you can measure it, you can manage it.
