Graphics Microsystems Contributes Printing System to RIT
Press release from the issuing company
Graphics Microsystems Inc., a leader in pressroom automation systems, is contributing to the latest enhancements underway within the graphic communications program at Rochester Institute of Technology.
The company is providing the ColorQuick closed-loop color control system to accompany RIT’s new Heidelberg Sunday 2000 press, currently being installed at the Rochester, N.Y., campus. ICC Color-managed, digital workflow and print-by-numbers is the vision for the web pressroom of the future that GMI and RIT share.
"We are pleased that RIT has selected the ColorQuick on-web closed loop color control system for their new Heidelberg Sunday press as a key to bringing that vision to the industry." says John Sweeney, director of color measurement systems at GMI. "Academic programs, research and industry education will be enhanced by the ColorQuick's comprehensive SPC reporting station, Color Manager."
The ColorQuick system measures a color control bar on the moving web, automatically driving the press to programmed target density values. It then calculates and reports a full range of print quality characteristics, such as Dot Gain and Print Contrast. With the exclusive spectral reporting capability, ColorQuick measures, stores and reports CIE Colorimetric data and full spectral reflectance data.
