Manufacturing

NUtec manufactures OEM quality digital printing ink with batch-to-batch consistency, long-run print reliability and exceptional image quality.

Inks are produced through proprietary, state of the art manufacturing processes and offered in a wide variety of packaging solutions including pouches/bags, cartridges and bottles.

NUtec’s unique 4-stage quality control system ensures the highest quality of products from raw material to finished ink.

Pigment dispersions are created at the very beginning of the manufacturing process, ensuring particle size consistency and milling at the nano level.

Proprietary equipment and procedures allow complete control over the entire manufacturing process, ensuring only the highest quality ink before final packaging.

The NUtec packaging and labelling department packages inks to customer’s specifications, while the regulatory department ensures that all international chemical safety regulations are followed.

An in-house maintenance and engineering department services and customizes all NUtec plant and machinery, ensuring smooth running and limited downtime in manufacturing.
