InkZone Inline measures colour bars on the paper web during the print run and continuously controls the offset press ink keys. The solution features an informative and modern user interface.
The combination of InkZone ink key presets and InkZone Inline colour control is significant, bringing to nearly all web offset presses a striking reduction in paper waste and make-ready time. Simultaneously, InkZone Inline helps users to achieve perfect colour consistency throughout the complete printing process.
‘The launch of InkZone Inline represents an incredible opportunity for commercial printing companies running web presses,’ said Mark Williams, Director of Sales for CMYK Distributors. ‘With more than 3000 connections worldwide, InkZone is already a powerhouse in the sheetfed offset printing marketplace. InkZone customers in the sheetfed offset arena have saved millions of dollars in paper waste and make-ready time with InkZone ink-presets and closed-loop technology. InkZone Inline brings this value to the web market and the anticipated impact is extraordinary.’
InkZone Inline was developed in close collaboration with grapho metronic, the renowned German manufacturer of colour measuring technology. InkZone Inline is available as a cost-optimised density measurement system (model IDSm), as well as a solution for spectral measurements according to ISO 12647-2/M1 (model ISS). InkZone Inline is perfectly suited for retrofitting any web press or to replace outdated colour measurement technology.
