Sajo Technologies Inc. has been manufacturing press auxiliary
equipment for the printing industry including the sheetfed
printing and web offset printing industries. Our printing ink
equipment includes ink dispensing systems( ink levelers ),
ink agitators, web break detectors, web severers, ink fountain
liners, ink filters, ink meters and ink pumps for both conventional
inks and uv inks..
Sajo is now present
in over 12 countries on all types of sheetfed and web offset presses
including DGM presses (Manugraph-DGM), Goss presses, Harris presses,
Tensor presses, Timsons presses, WPC presses(web press corporation)
including the quad-stack press, Komori presses, Mitsubishi presses,
Solna presses, Heidelberg presses, KBA presses, Akiyama presses,
Stevens presses, adast presses, didde presses, tenner presses, baker
perkins presses, miller presses, cosmos +presses, WMS ventura presses,
Rotoman presses, Octoman presses, Royal Zenith presses (RZ presses),
Hantscho presses and Zircon presses.
Sajo offers a wide range of
ink levellers for both sheet-fed presses and web offset presses. The
ink levelers include one, two and three piece models as well as two
and three stage versions designed for printers who don’t have the
budget or justification for the complete automated ink leveler.
In addition Sajo’s newest inking system is the new UV ink leveller
ideal for both the web press and sheet fed press.
Sajo Technologies offers a
new Ink Leveler and Ink Pump combination ideal for the sheetfed printer
or small web offset printer who currently has no pumping. The sheetfed
ink dispensing system consists of a swing-away ink leveler which can be
removed from the fountain in seconds and placed over another fountain
for quick color changes. This sheet-fed inking system allows for a
complete color change in under 5 minutes. The pump is available in 5
or 55 gallon versions. The 5 gallon ink pump is ideal for a single
press where as the 55 gallon ink pump could handle multiple press
Sajo manufactures ink
agitators in one and two piece designs for both sheetfed presses and
web offset presses. The pneumatic ink agitator requires no electricity
and can be mounted either over in front or below the ink fountain and
requires very little space. The ink mixer agitates the ink with the use
of a double band rodless pneumatic cylinder and using two adjustable
paddles which can easily be removed for cleaning. Presently Manugraph-DGM,
Goss, Tensor, Timsons, WPC and KBA all offer this ink agitator as an
option on their presses.
Through the association with
its U.S. counterpart, Sajo Technologies has obtained the rights to the
Quadtech web break detectors. The Quadtech web break detector utilizes
ultrasonic sensors and color touch screen controls. The web break
detection system instantly detects web breaks, simultaneously stops
press operation, and fires web severers before costly web wrap-up damage
can occur. The WebStop system can store up to 36 user-created jobs,
allowing the system to be instantly re-configured for different press
Many web severers lack the ability to cut the full
range of web offset paper stocks. The Sajo web severer is designed to cut
the lightest of paper up to the heavier cover and board stocks. At the
time of a web break, the web severers two sets of pneumatically actuated
stainless steel blades rotate into the web’s path from both directions,
piercing then cutting the web as the blades pass through each other.
Sajo Technologies now offers
ink fountain liners also known as ink duct foils or ink foils for all press
types. Press types that we are presently producing fountain liners for include;
Komori, Mitsubishi, KBA, Man Roland, Didde, Sakurai, Shinohara, Ryobi and
Hamada. This new ink duct foil design covers the entire inside of the ink
fountain and includes a peel and stick backing that installs in seconds.
Instead of cleaning out the ink fountain you simply pull the tab and the
fountain liner pulls out in seconds. The Ink Fountain Liner is a fully
Sajo ink meters combine accuracy
with reliability. Sajo offers two different ink meter designs, one that
is built on the nutating disc principle, the other using elliptical gears.
The nutating disc or positive displacement disc flowmeters are precision
constructed measuring instruments used for accurate measurement of offset
ink at high pressures. The rugged construction of the elliptical gear
positive displacement flow meter series features stainless steel bodies
and gears and tungsten carbide bushings and shafts.
Sajo Technologies have become
distributors for both the Yamada Ink Pumps and Lincoln Ink & UV Ink Pumps
for the sheetfed and web offset industries. They include 5 gal., 55 gal.,
tote and UV ink pumps. Unlike the canister style Sentinel System® with the
capacity of only 7.5 lbs. per canister, the 5 gallon pumps which are ideal
for the sheetfed printing industry hold up to 60 lbs. of ink at a time and
include a low level alarm as well as a digital ink scale that can be zeroed
at any time with a ± 2% accuracy.
Ink Filters help reduce hickies caused by impurities
in the ink or deterioration of pump components. Sajo provides high pressure
inline filters or “Y” filters with various flow ranges and micron sizes.
All filters include replaceable stainless steel elements that are both
inexpensive and easy to change.
