Abstract

A method is disclosed for reducing the intrinsic inertia (time to come to equilibrium) of lithographic and letter press ink supply systems. In conventional inking systems, the equilibrium time is measured in terms of copies because the surface speed of the rollers in the ink supply must travel at the same surface speed as the printing master.
