Clariant Launches Unique POS Color Dispenser Machines
- Innovative color dispenser offers fast and accurate dispensing technology at low cost of operation
- Compact foot print and unique performance allowing up to 6 simultaneous colorant dispensing
Muttenz, March 27, 2013 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, will create a stir among the Point of Sale (POS) Tinting segment with its launch of the first compact Color Dispenser to allow simultaneous dispensing of up to six colors at a time. Clariant’s machine is one of two new innovative prototypes offering performance and productivity benefits to retailers.
New Clariant Color Dispenser IQ-S16 is one of the most compact machines now available on the market with simultaneous colorant dispensing mode. With a footprint of 0.53m³, it saves on shop space without losing performance and accuracy. As with all Clariant dispensers, it is amongst the fastest and most reliable on the market, which makes it ideal for busy retail environments.
Clariant’s dispensing technology allows a dispensing speed of 1.1l/min with accuracy down to 1/384 fl.oz. It is based on stainless steel piston pumps powered by a single motor that controls the entire system. The easy-to-use machine offers low cost operation and ownership. It is virtually calibration free and, as colorant is dispensed directly into paint without the need for tubing, it keeps maintenance time and costs to a minimum.
Color Dispenser CD3001 is designed to serve the majority of paint stores which are looking at design and good price. It offers the same performance and productivity advantages as Clariant’s more compact model, the IQ-S16.
All Clariant machines are designed to handle all kinds of low VOC water based and universal colorants to support the sustainability requirements of the paints industry. The fully automatic colorant dispensers can be equipped with up to 16 easy-to-mount canisters with a standard capacity of 3 liters each, to match optimum refill cycles.
Dr. Gerd König, Vice President Global Marketing & Sales Coating Business / Business Unit Pigments, Clariant comments: “The new Clariant POS Dispenser Machines offer a smart solution to paint stores and retail environments, based on four decades as a pioneer in tinting machine technology.”
