DIGITAL INK PRESET SYSTEM – DIPS
Prinflow DIPS (Digital Ink Preset System) fits almost all presses, making your press CIP3 compatible. Most printers with older presses do not have this function and their only choice is to set ink keys manually. Without CIP3 automation these presses cannot be as profitable as they could be with an ink preset system. Printflow DIPS links your prepress workflow and your press console, automatically programming ink key settings for each new job. The DIPS package includes the hardware and software necessary for communication between prepress equipment and press consoles. Installation is simple and operator training can be done in a couple of hours. Printflow DIPS turns your older presses into a modern production workflow. And, Printflow DIPS can do the same for new or newer presses, often a costs less than OEM prices.
PRINTFLOW DC - CLOSED-LOOP COLOR CONTROL SYSTEM
In today´s competitive business environment there is an ever increasing need for more productivity, offering a rapid turnaround, while maintaining the highest levels of color consistency. Printflow DC expands the benefits of CIP3 compatibility (Digital Ink Preset System) and advanced closed-loop color management. Printflow DC works with scanning densitometers and spectrophotometers from Techkon and X-Rite. When scans are executed, the scan data is automatically sent to Printflow DC where it displays both the measured values and the necessary key movements to correct the color. This data is then transferred directly to the press console. The press console automatically adjusts the ink keys to enable the required colors to be achieved.
