Thursday, September 10, 2015

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 closed-loop color control solutions for commercial and offset packaging printers. 

DAYTON, Ohio - Rutherford Graphic Products, a leading developer of closed-loop color control systems for offset presses, announces that it will be featuring ExactLoop™ along with eXact Scan from X-Rite at Graph Expo 15, on Sept. 13-16, 2015, at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. This bundled closed-loop color control solution is designed to assist commercial and offset packaging printers manage color on-press automatically and will be on display in Booth #436.

“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.“We are thrilled to bundle the Rutherford solution with the award-winning eXact Scan into our closed-loop color management offerings,” says William Apostol Vice President of Sales, X-Rite. “Using Rutherford’s end-to-end color measurement and management solutions, commercial and packaging printers, will be able to reduce make ready times, streamline processes and improve profitability.”

ExactLoop improves pressroom productivity, enabling faster make-ready, empowering press operators to print to GRACoL, G7 or ISO Standards with ease and confidence. The X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer with Scan Option is the recipient of the 2015 Printing Industries of America InterTech Technology Award for Innovative Excellence. Working in tandem, ExactLoop and eXact Scan allow a press operator to monitor automatic adjustments to the ink keys on press, leading to predictable, repeatable color.

 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 IntelliTrax. 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 in record time.
