Rheology measurements play a pivotal role in the formulation and manufacturing of printing inks, as well as the raw materials utilized in the production of inks and other viscous liquids. Key considerations for offset printing inks encompass elements such as tack (indicative of ink stickiness), water pick-up, water release, and viscosity.

To ensure a steadfast quality in ink production, IGT Testing Systems has innovatively crafted a series of devices. These instruments proficiently measure key rheological properties of offset printing inks and associated materials, ensuring efficiency, reliability, and reproducibility in the evaluation process. Embracing cutting-edge technology, all these devices are meticulously computer-controlled, underscoring our commitment to precision and consistency.
