CGS Packaging Products at Graph Expo

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

  • New ORIS XG Inks and ORIS Transfer Film for Roland devices
  • New workflow tools: RealPro Packaging Suite & Aproove
  • CGS and Xerox feature color management partnership

 At Graph Expo, the premiere North American event for printing and graphics professionals, CGS will once again combine its traditional color management strength with an exciting new array of products-this time with a renewed focus on the packaging industry. At Chicago's McCormick Center South, from October 7-9, CGS partners and customers will be shown the latest innovations at Booth 432.
 
The Complete Package
One of the most talked-about developments at drupa, ORIS XG Inks are a new, extended-gamut eco solvent ink set, including orange and green - giving design and prepress firms the opportunity to prototype their work in full color - just the way it will print. Managed by CGS' ORIS Color Tuner // Web software, the combination of Roland VersaCAMM VS and ORIS XG Inks opens up a world of new possibilities.
 
Equally impressive is the company's new ORIS Transfer Film line, enabling eco solvent printing on any substrate. To view packaging, label or other proofs on the actual substrate to be used in print, UV printers are often the only solution. However, not all UV printers have a sufficiently wide color gamut, or they lack special colors like metallics. ORIS Transfer Film for the Roland VersaCAMM VS is an ideal solution, providing wide-gamut color capabilities on virtually all substrates. The printed film is easily laminated to the selected media, for a vivid and accurate proof of the finished product. In addition, CGS-ORIS customers may also create virtual prototypes of package designs with RealVue 3D Packager.
 
CGS' new RealPro Packaging Suite, is an Adobe Illustrator based workflow system and 3D visualization environment for labeling and packaging print service providers. As part of this powerful suite, CGS' new RealPro Toolkit automates the label and packaging production process and significantly reduces operational costs. The software provides modular, scalable, easy-to-use Illustrator plug-ins for trapping, step & repeat, warping, and more.
 
"The packaging industry has enormous potential for growth, but it has to deal with critical color issues in an increasingly competitive digital market," said company CEO Trevor Haworth. "Just as we helped publishers and commercial printers thrive in the midst of this kind of change-with our ORIS software and consumables-so too we are helping every member of the label and packaging supply chain, from designers, to brand managers, and service providers."
 
In addition, CGS will be showcasing Aproove, the simple solution for reviewing, and approving projects via secure Web connections – with no file transfer required. Aproove's intuitive approach allows multiple decision makers-even those with little technical or prepress experience-to easily and efficiently participate through invitation via browser or mobile device.
 
The booth will feature CGS' powerful approach to cross-fleet color management. ORIS technology has achieved remarkable success, most recently at Anderson/LA, a Consolidated Graphics company, where ORIS was successfully used to unify color output over multiple devices, including proofing on Epson devices as well as printing on HP Indigo, EFI VUTEk, and offset.
 
At the show, CGS partner Xerox will unveil its Confident Color program, which features ORIS Press Matcher // Web for assuring high-quality, consistent color on any digital press-even devices in multiple locations or from different manufacturers.
 
On the heels of the success of this approach, the company is extending that advantage beyond the prepress department and pressroom, now giving designers, consumer product companies, and brand owners new tools to produce compelling and consistent color more efficiently, including special effects -from labels and packaging to collateral, signage and advertising.
