Rutherford Graphic Products Unveils New Software to Close the Loop on Color at Graph Expo 14

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

The digitization of color information from creative to the pressroom gains further momentum with the announcement of Rutherford Graphic Products teaming up with X-Rite Pantone to create a new closed-loop color control solution for commercial and offset packaging printers
 
DAYTON, Ohio - Rutherford Graphic Products, a leading developer of closed-loop color control systems, announced today that it will release ExactLoop™, a new closed-loop color control solution designed to assist commercial and offset packaging printers manage color on-press automatically. Rutherford will exhibit ExactLoop in booth #4713 at Graph Expo 14 (Sept. 28th to Oct. 1st) in Chicago.
 
When used with X-Rite’s award winning eXact™ Scan spectrophotometer, ExactLoop improves pressroom productivity, enabling faster make-ready, empowering users to print to GRACoL, G7 or ISO Standards with ease and confidence. eXact Scan simplifies the regular monitoring of press runs by measuring color bars press-side. The result is fast and highly accurate density and spectral measurement data that gets sent to the ExactLoop interface. In turn, ExactLoop can make automatic adjustment to the ink keys on press, leading to predictable, repeatable color.
 
The combination of eXact Scan’s easy-to-use scanning features with ExactLoop makes digitally-driven, closed-loop color control an affordable reality for printers of all sizes and budgets,” comments Jay Rutherford, President of Rutherford Graphic Products. “Bringing these two technologies together allows for a smooth-running, advanced color-control solution that is integrated, regardless of the model of press or the prepress workflow that is in place.”
 
At Graph Expo, visitors can also learn about:
  • IntelliLoop™, a full-featured closed-loop color control solution that works in conjunction with X-Rite’s InteiilTrax. Advanced features of IntelliLoop allow for reading ink key openings and sweeps immediately following scans, assuring effective key moves that get to color quickly. There is also a “roll-back” feature permitting key-openings and sweep settings from any previous scan to be automatically loaded.
  • IntelliSet™, which leverages the digitization of color information included in the CIP data from prepress to automatically preset the ink keys, eliminating manual adjustments at the print console.
  • Rutherford and Alwan Color Expertise will be demonstrating how IntelliLoop and ExactLoop can work in sync with Alwan software suite - ColorHub, Print Standardizer and Print Verifier - ensuring that printed files match G7® printing conditions an ISO colors in record time.
