Esko And GIS Combine Expertise For New Digital Print And Packaging Solution


The combined packaging management, prepress automation and DFE expertise of Esko, along with the industrial inkjet capabilities of Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), has created a unique ecosystem for packaging and label digital printing.

Chuck Ravetto, VP/GM Suppliers Business of Esko, commented, ‘We know that digital press manufacturers are seeking to reduce development times of their presses. By using this integrated solution resulting from our partnership with GIS, they will get innovations to market faster. At the same time, packaging converters investing in digital press capacity will benefit by having more standardised and robust on-press solutions for workflow, colour management and device compensation.’

Ravetto continued, ‘Whether for short run label production, fast turnaround of promotional packaging work or efficiently handling a spike in demand, meeting the delivery deadline as expected by the print buyer is of paramount importance to business success. The combined capabilities of Esko and GIS create a level of integration that extends beyond the digital press and reduces complexity for everyone involved – driving efficiency and productivity when its needed most.’

Nick Geddes, Managing Director of GIS, added, ‘Our high speed single pass inkjet systems, offering very fast screening technologies and closed loop image quality control for missing nozzle compensation and printhead density correction, fit seamlessly into the Esko workflow, creating a powerful advantage for the digital print sector.’
