Abstract

This article describes an improved four-color inking system wherein two of the three rollers are modified to operate in combination with a single ink compartment having four separate compartment units to house the ink. The drawing illustrates the system including the ink compartment 10 with the four separate compartment units 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 and 10-4. Ink is supplied to the compartment units from a pump through conduits 12-1, 12-2, 12-3 and 12-4. Rollers 14, 16 and 18 are shown in operation with a fabric four-color ink ribbon 20. These rollers can be removed as the need arises to do straight black inking. Thus, there is no need to dedicate an inker for just four-color inking.
