Flexible design - We can design our processors to match every customer's needs and specific requirements.
"Submag" magnetic drive system - The submag drive, exclusive to Filmlab and used by all Filmlab processors, offers the following advantages:
Speed in ft/min:
Lubrication-free design - The "Submag" system has virtually eliminated the need for lubrication of any film transport components.
Low maintenance - Because of simple and lubrication-free design of our processors, regular maintenance is quick and easy.
Noiseless operation - Our unique drive system design ensures that all Filmlab processors are extremely quiet, even when running at full speed.
"Demand Drive" mechanism (on machines up to 200 ft / min) - It ensures proper low tension in all sections of the film.
Mag-motor, sprocket drive mechanism (on machines 330 - 660 ft / min) - A separate Mag-motor drives each rack assembly. This eliminates the need for any chains, sprockets, gears or line shafts. All the motors are electronically synchronised. Spring loading of each film loop ensures correct film tension.
Individual rack mounting - All the racks on Filmlab processors are individually mounted, allowing the operators to replace a malfunctioning rack in a matter of minutes, thus avoiding prolonged shutdowns. The system is safe for the operators, eliminating the danger of chemicals dripping onto their bodies. With our system, only the racks in need of servicing are removed from their tanks. This minimises dripping and spilling of chemicals from one tank to another.
Microprocessor operated Automatic Replenisher System - The system offers the following features:
All metal tanks - All the processing tanks are made of 316 Stainless Steel, except for Stop, UL Bleach, and Bleach Wash tanks, which are made of titanium. Other tanks can also be made of titanium, if requested by the customer.
16mm and 35mm film processing - Our design ensures easy change-over between 16 and 35mm film, even without stopping the machine.
Provision for fume exhaust - Double covers are provided on prebath, backing remover, developer and stop tanks, to provide light-proof assembly and to reduce splash and condensation. They also allow installation of a fume extraction system, which can be supplied by Filmlab as an option.
Off the floor tank mounting - Our processor tanks are complete assemblies mounted in stainless steel frames. Jackbolts are supplied for leveling purposes. This provides for easy installation and relocation (if required in the future). It also ensures that the machine is raised above the floor, which allows for easy washdown below the machine, resulting in a very clean lab environment.
Convex tyres. - All tyres on a Filmlab processor have a convex profile, which reduces the edge pressure on the film.
Static eliminator bars - Static eliminator bars are installed as standard in the drying cabinet to ensure that there is no static charge on the film during the winding operation.
Washwater mixing valve - This valve allows the operator to set the temperature of the wash water.
LED based, graphic elevator position indicator - Mounted on the control cabinet, it gives the operator a graphical indication of the position of both elevators.
A pressure gauge for the developer tank - The gauge indicates when the developer filter is blocked and needs cleaning.
