Solvent Cartridges Introduces InkStream Lite-X and Lite-S

Bulk ink systems with wide mouths

Big Picture

Ontario-based Solvent Cartridges has introduced its InkStream Lite-X and Lite-S bulk ink delivery systems. The bulk ink systems have ink reservoirs with wide mouths (for easy refilling). Each holds 700 ml of ink, and the reservoirs have translucent walls (so current ink level is visible). The bulk ink system does not require a separate stand; it mounts on top of the printer.

The only difference between the two systems is that Lite-S has simplified electronics that require the user to insert three chips in the connector on the bulk system for each liter of ink consumed. When using the Lite-X, only one chip is required per liter. (Chips are free of charge with the inks.) Lite-S is less expensive but less convenient to run due to the more frequent changing of chips.

The InkStream Lite-X and Lite-S are both compatible with Mimaki JV3, Mutoh Falcon and Rockhopper, and Tiara Opal printers. (Solvent Cartridges:
