Reduced waste/Sustainability

Why do you have a massive inventory of ink in the back of your pressroom? Because ordering too much ink is safer than ordering too little. With the Mx-Series, you never have to worry about running out of ink. Make slightly less than you think you need, bring it to press and get a mileage check. If you need more, make more. It’s that easy.

You can even recycle the ink you already have on your shelves into new colors.

Here’s how it works:

1) Request your desired color on the software. Let’s say you needed 5 lb (1.4 kg) of PMS 221. Click on ‘Dispense’, and enter that color and amount.

2) The software will prompt you with a list of colors in your inventory that can be recycled into PMS 221. Let’s say you selected 2 lb (.9 kg) of PMS 198 from this list.

3) If the ink is commercial sheetfed, you’ll need to remove any ink skin from the old can of PMS 198.

4) Place the PMS 198 on the dispenser’s scale, click ‘Dispense’, and watch as it magically turns your old PMS 198 into PMS 221*.

5) Pat yourself on the back. You made an environmentally friendly decision, and saved your company money in the process.

*It’s not really magic. It’s basic math actually. Just make sure your old ink is actually the color you said it was.

DL of One or Less

For this application, “dl”, or “deviation of light”, is a spectrophotometer reading that measures the average film thickness across the proof. The lower the dl, the more consistent the film thickness. Manual proofing systems can have a dl as high as 5.

Highly Robust

Using Solidworks™ Simulation software, the MxVortex has undergone extensive stress analysis tests to optimize the load on its patent pending bearing system. The result? A powerful and reliable mixing solution that gets the job done right.

Fountain Filling Systems

Automated fountain filling systems require ~20.0 psi to dispense ink through the small slits on the bottom of a cardboard cartridge. If one of these slits gets clogged with dried ink, the tubes are capable of bursting. Using the EcoFlow cartridge, this is impossible because of its silicone valve that only requires ~2.0 psi to dispense ink.

Cardboard Cartridges

Cardboard cartridges have a tendency to damage in shipping, can occasionally leak, and become unsightly when stored in inventory for an extended period of time. Because of this, GFI Innovations developed a one piece plastic design, an upgrade that was warmly welcomed by their users.


Metal Pot

The metal pot is specially designed to protect the liners when mixed in the Mx-Series mixers. It is re-useable and, if used properly, it will not be necessary to clean it.

DL of One or Less

For this application, “dl”, or “deviation of light”, is a spectrophotometer reading that measures the average film thickness across the proof (multiple readings are taken to develop this average). The lower the dl, the more consistent the film thickness. Manual proofing systems can have a dl as high as 5.

Highly Robust

Re-designed in 2010 using Solidworks™ Simulation software, the MxVortex has undergone extensive stress analysis tests to optimize the load on its patent pending bearing system. The result? A powerful and reliable mixing solution that gets the job done right.
