Pneumatic Ink Cartridges (DM-2 & DM-2.3)

Used with DieMark Pneumatic Ink Hardware

The heart of all pneumatic inking systems is the DieMark DM-2 disposable ink cartridge. The DM-2 is pre-filled and factory tuned to eliminate labor intensive inker related delays in the test area: ink mixing, refilling, adjustments, cleaning and rework. DM-2 contains 60% more ink than standard DieMark cartridges ensuring consistent dots and long life at any speed.

The DM-2 has a polypropylene ink reservoir, which is sealed by a threaded cap at the top and a thin membrane at the bottom. The traditional fishline has been replaced by a small Teflon tube encased in a stainless steel needle. When the cartridge is opened, the needle punctures the reservoir to provide ink flow.

Filament Ink Cartridges

Used with Electric Ink Hardware

Electric (solenoid driven) inkers utilize DieMark cartridges for the ultimate inking solution. DieMark cartridges offer reliable, consistent, trouble free operation with the benefit of a disposable unit. Pre-filled factory tuned cartridges are easy to use - no adjusting, refilling or cleaning.

All inks utilized in the cartridges have been selected to produce consistent dots over a wide range of speeds without dripping, or skipping.

Three needle configurations are available to afford optimal visual/physical inker clearance. DM-1 cartridges have a 0.75 inch needle, DM-1.25 cartridges have a 1.25 inch needle and DM-S cartridges have an S-curved needle.
