D2 Bucket Lid Remover Demo

D2 Bucket Lid Remover Demo

The Bucket Scoop D2 Lid Remover is the safer, cleaner alternative to cutting or pulling ink bucket lids off. The tool is designed for 1 & 2 gallon buckets, and works for wide and narrow lid-bucket gaps.

For buckets with wide lid-bucket gaps (see video for demonstration):

  1. Place the Jaw in the lid-bucket gap.
  2. Squeeze the handles. The tool works as "anti pliers," opening as you squeeze.
  3. Work around the bucket, squeezing intermittently.
  4. Once popped off, remove the lid. The lid can later be hammered back onto the bucket for safe storage.

The tool also works for narrow gaps; simply use the side Jaw, working the tool up and down to pry the lid open (see video for demonstration).

The Bucket Scoop D2 Lid Remover is available at Nazdar SourceOne.

Electrical Spotlight: Tips for a Day/Night Backlit

In general, backlit images are meant to be viewed only when a light source is behind the image.

The problem is that a print that looks good when backlit needs to have a heavy ink load. It needs to be dark and dense to compensate for strong backlighting. But that same print will look terrible in a front-lit application. Here are some tips to get around the problem.

A Print Finishing Primer

A Print Finishing Primer

In the digital graphics industry, a great deal of attention is paid to output devices. It isn’t difficult to understand why. Wide-format inkjet devices, whether fast or slow, flatbed or roll-to-roll, play an important role in the creation of graphic prints. But it’s important to remember that most prints must be finished in some way before they can be delivered to the customer as a sellable final product.
