Alwan Color Expertise to exhibit standardization solutions at Graph Expo

Press release from the issuing company

Lyon – Alwan Color Expertise, a world leader in color management and standardization technologies, will showcase the latest version of its automated G7/ISO 12647 solutions at Graph Expo 2010, which takes place October 3 – 6. The company will run live demonstrations of its Alwan PRINT Standardizer v2.1 solution, which comes with a new automated G7 conformance feature, on the TECHKON USA booth (753).

"TECHKON SpectroJet and SpectroDrive instruments are used worldwide in automated and standardized production environments," says David Hunter, Alwan Color Expertise's representative for North America. "This makes them ideal complementary technologies for Alwan PRINT Standardizer. This is because the solution needs accurate measurement data to assess, analyze, and issue ISO conformance reports for each measured sheet and job, and generate accurate Dynamic calibration curves for the printer RIP or the CTP RIP if the prints do not match the chosen output standard. All this is done automatically in real time."

George Adam, TECHKON USA President, adds: "TECHKON has been very successful in the last 28 years in providing not only highly accurate measurement devices, but also solutions that help our customers improve their color quality and pressroom productivity. Conformance to G7 and ISO 12647 standards is now a pre-requisite for North American printers, who need to make this necessary adoption quickly and cost-effectively in these economically challenging times.

"This is the reason behind our partnership with Alwan Color Expertise. The company is recognized worldwide as a leader in providing standardization solutions for the pressroom. The combination of TECHKON instruments and Alwan software gives printers not only the best solution for printing to G7 and ISO 12647 standards, but also a solution that provides a solid return on investment."
