An ideal instrument for applying defined layers of liquid media (e.g. as flexographic inks) onto absorbent or non-absorbent substrates for manufacturing repeatable sample presses that comes very close to conventional flexographic printing. The application conditions are determined using either the engraved anilox rollers or the wire-wound rollers. The AUTOMATIK K-LOX Roller 622 consists of an electric motor-driven or pneumatically-driven basic unit (the K 101) and the K-Lox attachment. It ensures a constant pulling speed (up to 15 m/min), uniform contact pressure and a very high level of repeatability.
