Principle of Operation
"Color-Right" Automatic Paint/Ink Dispensing Systems dispense base components to create custom colors on demand to easily meet small or large production needs with minimal effort.
Base components are stored in containers suited for the volume required to meet production demands. To insure a homogeneous blend in the pipe lines, all components are automatically recirculated.
Formulas/recipes to be dispensed are stored on the local dispensing system database or on a centrally located server. Our in-house developed and supported "Color-Right" Software automatically scales the formula and dispenses the correct amount and records lot numbers for reporting purposes.
Accuracy and repeatability of our gravimetric dispense systems are controlled by a uniquely designed valve pulse routine. The pulse routine accommodates common fluctuations in product viscosity and system air. Dispense accuracy is typically 0.1 gram or better.
Larger dispense amounts such as base components can be handled by bigger pumps and dispensing valves to optimize the speed of dispense.
A unique washing system flushes the valve’s face to insure a trouble free operation after each dispense.
To meet various needs CB Mills employs two different designs, fixed-head and center-point.
Fixed-Head Production Dispenser
Fixed-head production paint/ink dispenser model CR-22
The dispensing head is designed to accommodate up to (19) 3-stage valves and up to (3) On/Off valves. The valves are fixed in a circular array for dispensing into a minimum 12” diameter container.
Center-Point Production Dispenser
Please click on the paint/ink dispensing model that matches the number of valves/components needed:
|MODEL||Number of Valves|
|CR-22 Pail||up to 22|
|CR-22 Drum||up to 22|
|CR-48||up to 48|
|CR-96||up to 96|
One of CB Mills’ long term strengths has been to listen to the needs and comments of our customers. That is why Mr. Bruce Krumholz, the fourth generation owner, has lead the development of this state-of-the-art CR-Lab automatic dispensing system.
“I can’t fit a lab dispenser through a doorway to get it in to my lab where I need it.”
We took action and designed our CR-Lab automatic dispensing system around your needs and that is why the foot-print of the dispense head is < 32” deep.
“I’m constantly refilling my popular colors because the storage containers are too small.”
Again, we have listened and developed an automatic dispensing system that will give you the flexibility of connecting to virtually any container size for your stored components. Alternatively, the CR-Lab automatic dispenser can tie into the pumping system of your production dispenser to eliminate inconsistencies between the lab stored components and production components. Furthermore, the formulas/recipes created on the lab system can be available to the production system immediately upon creation.
