CGS South Africa has launched a cost-effective turnkey solution for Flexible Packaging Proofing and Mock-Up Production. Helmut Franken from CGS Germany also attended the launch event, held at the Johannesburg Country Club in Woodmead on 14 and 15 March.
Based around the worlds leading digital proofing system – ORIS Color Tuner // Web – the system brings you a unique hard-copy and soft proofing in one package. At the heart of the application is the companys patented four–dimensional iterative colour management software which, combined with a specially designed custom interface for Roland VersaCAMM VS series printers, gives you the ultimate in production flexibility for halftone and continuous tone proofing. All printer features, such as multi-pass and print-and-cut, are supported the software and the included Pantone colour libraries enable proofing of special colors. Special colours can also be added by the user to the colour database.
Based around ORIS Color Tuner // Web, youll get results from the complete package, including:
Roland VersaCAMM VS Series
The revolutionary eco-solvent printer is available in four different sizes, from 30-64 inch, featuring white and metallic ink in addition to C, lc, M, lm, Y and K, allowing the production of contract quality proofs and prototypes on substrates similar to the original stock, used in flexible packaging.
ORIS Special Substrates
In an environment where colour accuracy and repeatability are essential, a high grade coating with a wide colour gamut is required. ORIS Specialty substrates have been manufactured to the highest quality under extremely tight tolerances and are guaranteed to bring you the best in packaging proofing.
ORIS Turbo Heater
To ensure uniform drying and to prevent substrates sticking together, especially with roll take-up, CGS has developed an optional add-on dryer that easily fits to the output section of the VS printer.
Also showcased was the RealPro 3D-Packager from FFEI (marketed in South Africa under the DigitalView banner), the definitive 3D visualisation software for fast carton packaging prototyping. It dramatically reduces the costs associated with design sampling, accelerating the creation and delivery of 3D soft mock ups for:
– Designers, Agencies and Marketing Services Providers
– Brand Owners
– Packaging Converters
The software allows you to design, distribute, demonstrate and investigate.
– Instantly share your 3D soft mock up with customers anywhere in the world via the internet or email.
– Explore the visual impact of varnishes, foil stamping and a range of sophisticated product enhancement techniques without extra expense.
– Display your finished 3D design with a 360 degree view, animate the folding process and annotate your comments.
– Add updates and trial suggestions via a few mouse clicks and enjoy instant feedback.
– Lower your carbon footprint by transporting fewer printed samples.
