FIRST1 Brochure
FIRST1 Data sheet


Preset turntable configurations of 12 or 16 canisters are available. The turntable is controlled and managed with the latest generation of simplified electronics reducing component complexities. The overall height of the machine allows for simplified refilling of colorants and easy access to all the controls.


A long-lasting 0,05 cc PTFE bellow pump delivers a dispensing flow rate of 0,2 liter/min. The pumping action is driven by a compact cam that is activated by a single actuator motor.


The innovative nozzle design used in FIRST1 is the result of research and innovation derived from the most advanced COROB™ product lines. The technology allows for accurate color dispersion while safeguarding against water-based colorant drying. Each nozzle can be easily reached, removed and cleaned under water for optimal machine performance and colorant dispersion.


FIRST1 is constructed using several different techno polymers. This assures a sturdy and well balanced frame that withholds the weight of the colorants while giving the machine the stability and strength to function in even the most difficult of working environments.


Not only the purchase cost of the unit makes it an ideal tool for improving the bottomline, but also the smart packaging increases the ability to deliver the machine in an economical way. The split packaging approach in matter of fact increases the number of units per shipment and reduces the overall size of the boxes, with clear benefits for moving the machine around the globe all the way to up to final destinations, even if very remote.


icon easy setup


Step-by-step user guided installation software has been developed to guide any user through machine set-up operations.

icon ideal ownership cost


The everlasting bellow pump, free from wear and tear due to the lack of mechanical stress between the pump and colorant, lasts for a lifetime without needing to be changed.

icon operator friendly


The easy instructions and working cycle make the unit usable with a very limited learning curve speeding up the tinting process for the end customer.

icon maintence over time


The streamlined design of FIRST1 reduces the overall number of components, resulting in fewer parts that require maintenance for greater savings over time.
