Press release from the issuing company

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has delivered its 1,000th Prinect Image Control for spectrophotometric measurement of the entire print image to the Rasch print shop in Bramsche near Osnabrück, Germany. "Our focus on the quality market means we place a particularly high value on color management. Prinect Image Control is an important building block in our color workflow, since it measures the entire print image, in other words what we are actually selling," says Uwe Schade, Managing Director at Rasch, explaining the company's investment decision. "1,000 Prinect Image Control systems installed worldwide is compelling evidence of the importance that the quality-oriented high-end sector attaches to spectrophotometric color measurement. Many print shops recognize that investments in an optimized color workflow really do pay dividends, since quality can be produced and reproduced with absolute reliability," explains Jörg Bauer, Vice President of Prinect Product Management at Heidelberg. Features of Prinect Image Control Prinect Image Control is a highly automated color measuring system for monitoring quality outside of the press. It is the only system in the world to measure the whole print image spectrophotometrically. The measurement results are logged. Prinect Image Control determines the deviations from the predefined reference values and automatically tells the operator what adjustments are needed. These are transferred online to the press which then regulates the ink zones in all printing units simultaneously and enables the print shop to achieve consistently high quality. Prinect Image Control also contains a database for special colors and is Remote Service compatible.
