Thwing-Albert Instrument Company announced today the release of the Inkometer 1100. The Inkometer 1100 builds on the success of the Inkometer 106 adding features that increase customer efficiency and laboratory safety. Inkometer 1100 to measure ink tack

The Inkometer 1100 measures the apparent tack of printing inks under conditions that closely approximate the dynamic conditions of the ink-distribution system of a printing press during printing.

Featuring a new keypad and multi-line display, the Inkometer 1100's intuitive interface streamlines operation for exceptional ease of use. The new design embodies Thwing-Albert's continuing attention to customer needs. The Inkometer 1100 provides advanced features such as test method storage, statistical reporting and data exporting, providing the tools to the testing lab that increase productivity in the printing and ink development industries.

In addition to four pre-defined ASTM D-4361 based test methods, the Inkometer 1100 allows for storage of five user definable methods. Methods include specification for distribution roller speed, distribution time, testing roller speed, testing time and sampling rate. The Inkometer 1100 stores up to 180 tack readings per test. Tack readings can also be transmitted via the RS-232 port or exported to a USB flash drive.

The Inkometer 1100 is now available for purchase globally and will continue to be a valuable tool for the printing and ink industry to verify, test, and improve quality. To learn more about the Inkometer 1100 please contact our sales department at
