Model Number: K LOX

The simplest method of applying flexo inks and other fluid coatings onto any substrate to produce accurate and
repeatable proofs that closely resemble conventional flexo printing. The K Lox Proofer is an essential tool for ink makers
and printers alike. Ideal for quality control and presentation samples, R&D and computer colour matching data.

Instant flexo proofs.
Easy to use – easy to clean.
Excellent repeatability.
Reduces press down-time.
Fully interchangeable rollers up to 500 screen.
Hand and automatic versions available

A bead of ink is placed between an engraved anilox roller and a rubber roller as illustrated below. It is essential to
have constant pressure between the rollers for consistent prints and this is ensured by two weights. When the K Lox
is drawn smoothly over the substrate an accurate film of ink is printed producing a sample up to 4.5” (115mm)
wide. After removing the weights, both rollers are easily cleaned. Anilox rollers with screens for solid, line and halftone printing may be selected as required.

The Hand K Lox provides a cost effective and simple means of proofing flexo inks. It is available as a single unit or may
be ordered as a comprehensive system. The Hand K Lox complete system comes with 3 standard engraved anilox rollers, 2 rubber rollers and a cleaning storage rack.

With a little practice, the K Lox user is able to produce consistent results with the hand unit. However, where a
number of operators may be involved or when the highest degree of repeatability is demanded (e.g. when using the
prints for computer colour matching), the Automatic K Lox is recommended. This machine eliminates any variation in
speed and pressure and an accurate print is produced every time. The unit operates at variable speeds up to
15m/min. An air driven version is available for use in hazardous areas.
