The Sentinel iPro, an electronically controlled and automated cartridge-based ink dispensing system, incorporates a new direct beam ultrasonic sensor to report ink usage. Highly sensitive directional capabilities and other improved electronics all monitor the amount of ink in the fountain and automatically adds ink as needed, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the press. The unit virtually eliminates rework associated with color variation and has been shown to increase productivity by 20%. Recognizing statistics that indicate more than 25,000,000 pounds of ink is wasted annually, the iPro not only answers the need for increased productivity along with color consistency, it also addresses sustainability and environmental friendliness.
