GIS offers a range of components for Ink Delivery Systems (IDS). GIS has designed electronics and software for ink supply system control and also offers additional support including a range of header tanks, system controls for pressure, filtration, heating and degassing, plus system design and consultancy.
The GIS ink system components can be used with almost all industrial inkjet printheads and the majority of ink types including aqueous, UV curable and functional fluids - subject to materials compatibility tests.
GIS does not provide a complete IDS, instead we offer a range of standard components and design consultancy that allow OEMs to integrate customised solutions according to their commercial and technical needs.
We work with customers to design and configure a system tailored to your specific requirements. We design custom parts if required and we adopt a “building block” approach allowing machine builders ultimately to source their own components such as ink pumps and filters, which reduces their costs.
GIS software and electronics for IDS
Each Ethernet networked GIS ink control board (ISC-IMB-I6) can control from 1 to 6 fluids/inks independently. Two or more boards can be connected for systems that require 7 – 12 fluids/inks and beyond.
Header Tank features and controls
Low pressure purge
High pressure purge
The GIS IDS components can be used with printheads with different ink flow modes:-
GIS offers a range of standard header tank designs. Each can support up to two printheads per tank, but can be customized as required for larger systems. The GIS header tank designs also take into account different flow modes, space restrictions and ink capacity requirements for different applications and printer sizes.
GIS also offers many additional components for an IDS including purge manifolds, pneumatic tanks, pressure chambers, vent manifolds, vacuum pumps, ink pumps, ink and air filters, degasser contactors and bulk ink tanks
