Long Ink

Long ink is a system or unit in printing machinery designed to hold a substantial volume of ink, enabling extended printing runs without the need for frequent ink changes or interruptions.


Extended ink unit



  1. Commercial Printing: Long ink units are commonly used in commercial printing presses, especially in high-volume printing environments such as newspapers, magazines, and catalogs. They allow for continuous printing of large quantities without downtime for ink replenishment.
  2. Packaging Printing: In the packaging industry, long ink units are utilized for printing on flexible packaging materials, labels, and corrugated boxes. They support efficient production processes by reducing the frequency of ink changes during runs.
  3. Large Format Printing: For large format printing applications such as posters, banners, and signage, long ink units are beneficial for achieving consistent print quality and color saturation over extended print runs.



  • Increased Productivity: Long ink units enhance productivity by reducing downtime associated with ink changes, allowing for longer uninterrupted printing runs.
  • Cost Efficiency: Minimizing ink changeovers can lead to cost savings in terms of labor, material waste, and overall production time.
  • Consistent Print Quality: The continuous supply of ink from long ink units helps maintain consistent print quality and color accuracy throughout extended print jobs.
  • Maintenance and Monitoring: Regular maintenance and monitoring of long ink units are essential to ensure optimal performance and prevent issues such as ink starvation or over-inking.
  • Compatibility: Ensure compatibility between long ink units and printing presses, including proper integration, ink type suitability, and adjustments for different substrates and printing conditions.
Long ink units are integral components in modern printing technology, providing efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness for high-volume printing applications across various industries. Contact us to learn more!
