Caldera Puts Partnership at Center of Color-Driven Tecnargilla Presence

Monday, September 22, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Caldera will lead on its scalable solution for digital printing onto ceramics at Tecnargilla, Europe's premier event for the sector, taking place next week between September 22nd and 26th in Rimini, Italy. Its established Caldera Ceramic Special Edition encompasses the software developer's vast learning from leading technology partners, existing customers and extensive research and development, and represents the manifestation of its 20 years' experience in digital print applications of all flavors.

Recognizing the diversity of applications now created by ceramics specialists world-wide, Caldera's Ceramic Special Edition enables businesses to grow from simple, push-button production environments to totally customizable workflows. For market entrants, attention has been provided to ensure that control is combined with ease of use; an out-of-the-box product with limited training necessary, it nevertheless provides all features required for professional results, including image scale and manipulation, resizing, pattern replication, spooler management and color enhancement.

Ceramic Special Edition users can scale up into extensive customization formats as required. Key to this is the software's custom ink set management, which allows for the allocation of any ink to any print channel. This enables support for the specific process colorants used throughout ceramics production through up to 16 channels simultaneously – especially the brown, beige and blue tones popular within the ceramics world, as well as white, gloss, matt and relief effects.

Caldera's partnerships and ink-jet heritage are at the center of this product, and will be embodied in the technical expertise of its staff at the show. From key platform developers including Durst, Scami-Intesa, System and Teckwin, to technology specialists Xaar, Konica Minolta and Dimatix, via ink manufacturers Torrecid, Esmalglass-Itaca, Colorabia and Fero, Caldera ensures that it works with a combination of providers to develop its product to meet the diverse requirements of the market.

"Key players are driving innovation in this exciting new area of ink-jet production; Caldera is proud to enable their developments, and those of their customers," explains Frederic Soulier, chief technical officer, "Caldera sits at the middle of innovations in ink, print-head and printer platform evolution, and realizes that the ceramics world is now hungry for new levels of color control and predictability. We are looking forward to welcoming our visitors, customers, technology partners and press to explore these new opportunities with us at Tecnargilla, and in the future."

Caldera and its Ceramic Special Edition will be on show at stand 106 in hall D1.
