GFI Innovations Elevates Ink Formulation

GURNEE, IL—September 9, 2009—With 2-1/2 years of success in the marketplace, GFI Innovations’ unique Mx6 Ink Formulation Dispenser has attracted a very sizeable and loyal following. Printers from coast-to-coast and Hawaii, as well as those in Canada, understand the significant benefits realized from mixing their own ink. Having the ability to save time and money, along with exercising greater control over the process and labor costs, makes quite a statement given today’s economic situation. At PRINT 09 in Chicago, GFI (booth #4009) will provide printers with new products to further help their operations.

Visitors to the GFI booth during the September 11-16 show at McCormick Place will find a new Blade Mixer, a revised automated color proofer, and an ink formulation software package waiting for them. The Mx6 dispenser, the star in the company’s stable, also will be prominently featured.

“I’m looking forward to PRINT 09 because so much has happened in the last 11 months since we were at McCormick Place for the Graph Expo show,” said John Borkovec, GFI director of sales and marketing. “The Mx6 Ink Formulation Dispenser has attracted a lot of attention from printers across the country and in Canada. With the introduction of the new Blade Mixer and the modifications we have made to our proofing system, we have a more rounded program to offer at this show. Printers who are looking for any edge they can find in this economy will want to see these products. They’ll learn how our customers have experienced bottom line benefits from taking control of their ink situations.”

The new MxM-1 Blade Mixer thoroughly blends spot colors in 5-7 minutes. Simply designed, this highly durable and automated mixer is built to last. Adjustable slide bars can accommodate up to 10-pound containers and easily mixes water-based or liquid inks and paste inks, too. It’s simple to operate with a timer, easily fits into any pressroom with a small footprint (16x18x20”), and comes with disposable sleeves for the blade so no clean-up is necessary.
