For those working with thicker inks like plastisol, here's a step-by-step guide to achieve the perfect mix:
- Initial Setting: Start the mixer at a low setting, preferably 10 RPMs or lower.
- Adjusting Speed: As the ink warms up, gradually increase the speed, ensuring it doesn't exceed 20 RPMs.
- Mixing Direction: Begin the mixing process spinning to the left. Once the ink settles in the center, turn off the power, switch the mixer's direction to the right, and power it back on.
For the thinner inks, such as water-based inks, follow these steps:
- Speed Setting: Adjust the mixer to hit 20 RPMs or even higher.
- Mixing Direction: Start the process by spinning to the left. Once the ink gathers in the center, switch to the right, and conclude with a leftward spin.
The RevolvInk Mixer's ability to mix custom colors sets it apart from any other mixer in the market. Here's how to get those vibrant custom shades:
- Unique Capability: This mixer's prowess in blending custom colors is unparalleled.
- Pantone Colors: For mixing Pantone shades, set the mixer above 20 RPMs. Start with a leftward spin, switch to the right once pigments settle in the center, and finish with a leftward spin.
- Achieving Perfection: The mixer will mix colors to about 90% completion. For that final touch, manually mix any pigments that might be stuck in the container's corners or on the paddle.
Highlight: The efficiency of this device is mind-blowing. Imagine having a job requiring four Pantone colors. As one color mixes, you can prep the next. The easy paddle swap feature allows for swift color changes, significantly speeding up the entire process compared to manual mixing.

- Routine Maintenance: A weekly cleaning schedule is recommended, though this can vary based on usage.
