Automated Industrial Systems, which makes pad printers in Erie, Pa., said its VC-1 monitors and controls ink viscosity inside a sealed ink cup.
If the viscosity varies outside of a preset range, solvent is added automatically to bring the ink back to the proper viscosity.
The VC-1, which is mounted directly in the ink cup, can be retrofitted to most sealed-cup pad printers.
