Printing Expertise

Capex Corporation, a sister company to Apex Machine Company, is a speciality ink blender of both conventional and ultraviolet curing printing inks. Our goal is to be a continuous source of the best printing inks, coatings, cleaners and supplies for both your APEX engineered systems and other OEM's printers. Your highly specialized applications require equally specialized inks for optimal printing and production.

Picture shown ink supplies from CapexCapex representatives work closely with the Research and Development Department at Apex to determine the appropriate printing inks for each application. We listen to your individual requirements and apply our expertise to fulfil your printing needs.

Capex Corporation offers a wide range of printing inks, cleaners, and supplies designed specifically for printing, marking and decorating systems and any 3-Dimensional products. Each printing process and product substrate dictates the kind of ink.

Our paste inks are generally used in Dry Offset, Letterflex, Letterpress, and Rotary Letterpress printers. Our liquid inks are generally used in Rotogravure, Rotogravure Offset, Rotoscreen, and Flexography. Custom formulation inks are also supplied for the Flexapex™ and other special processes.

Use our cleaners on the printers, as well as throughout the facilities. Capex hand cleaner is world famous for its safe cleaning power. Supplies and kits are numerous, so please refer to the following catalogue of information.

Ink Color System

Capex Ink Color System

While there are many complex methods for referencing ink colors in use around the world, Capex has a very simple approach. Capex offers a vast array of colored inks and the listing below is only a general reference to our most popular colors. When ordering please tell us which color system and reference you wish to match.

For simplicity, each of Capex's different ink types has a unique 2 digit prefix to denote the ink series reference, for example 94 = UV Cure Paste Ink (see reference below for full series information). The next 2-3 digits in the item # relate to the color of the ink, for example 00 = Black, or 148 = Cyan (see color listing below).

The color references within each of the different ink series depend strictly on the series core formulations. Therefore, specific color references may not equate exactly between different series inks. Please make sure to always confirm the color reference when testing a new ink series. Ultra Violet cured ink colors do equate exactly throughout the UV series ranges.

Capex inks are supplied under our own color references, but we can provide our match for almost any other color referencing system, please specify system name and ink reference number when ordering.
