Carton ink printing machine is a common printing equipment, usually divided into one color, two colors, three colors, four colors these categories, it can be printed on the load of a detailed color change.The operation of carton printing machine must understand its procedures, before the printing should do a good job in machine inspection, production preparation, production process to meet the requirements of the process, after the end of production, cut off the power supply, airflow.

Rules of operation for ink printing machines

I. Machine inspection

1. Carry out the following routine inspection on the machine;

(1) Check whether there are other items in the unit and the workbench.

(2) Check whether each oil level is normal.

(3) Wipe and check whether the printing plate is damaged.

(4) There is no difference in the operation of the machine inspection.

(5) Each lubrication point must be lubricated once.

2. Understand the operation status of the equipment and check the operation of the machine has no abnormal sound.

Ii. Preparation for production

1. Check the handover records.

2. After receiving the production order, first check whether the order is correct, understand the process requirements, production quantity and matters needing attention of the products to be produced, and mark the living parts printed in two shifts on the printing surface to trace the quality problems.

3. Prepare raw and auxiliary materials according to the assigned list.

4. Read the designated list of products carefully to understand whether there are special requirements for the products, such as:

3. Set ink amount and ink viscosity according to printing color in advance;

4. Correctly adjust machine pressure, printing speed, slot position and color sequence.

Iii. Operation specifications in production

1. Start paper feeding, produce one or two pieces of cardboard, pass the inspection, and start mass production.

2. Check the packing case with reference to the approved draft or approved sample:
