Tobias Associates, Inc is pleased to announce their CLM Close Loop Module for web and sheet fed printers with the desire to interface their automated press consoles with a Tobias’ scanning densitometer for static close loop operation.
Printers today are faced with the need to reduce their manufacturing costs by reducing paper waste and hourly operating costs. Without a doubt, having automated press controls have enabled paper waste to be reduced, but press key control tampering still can occur. Tobias Associates’ new Close Loop Module minimizes the ‘human judgment’ of proper ink density, which is highly subjective, to a more modern approach by using a scanning densitometer to ‘read’ the colorbars and then automatically adjust the keys of the press.
The module supports a wide variety of automated press consoles and software programs, such as Telecolor 1 & 11, Komori PQC, Mitsubishi Consoles, KBA Planeta Consoles, Microcolor 11 Console and Heidelberg CPC consoles.
