EPG, Pitman, an Agfa Company, and X-Rite collaborate on Adelphi demonstrations in the Agfa Graphics booth, #1227.
Centerbrook, Connecticut - Commercial, packaging, and newspaper printers using non-EPG ink control systems are discovering new KeyColor Adelphi presetting and color scanner interface technology at Graph Expo 2011. In the Agfa Graphics booth, #1227, EPG staff members are demonstrating Adelphi AutoSet presetting from digital files and the Adelphi AutoKey color scanner interface. AutoKey is also closing the loop with an X-Rite IntelliTrax automated scanning system. Any non-EPG ink control system on any press can utilize Adelphi technology to reduce job setup time and money as the EPG KeyColor presetting and color scanner interface software incorporated in EPG ink control systems does now.
EPG (Essex Products Group www.epg-inc.com) is displaying the KeyColor C and KeyColor S ink control systems in booth, #3348. KeyColor AutoSet and AutoKey software for EPG systems are also being shown. AutoSet allows press operators to preset ink fountain keys accurately from digital files. AutoKey software enables closed loop ink key adjustments according to density readings from color scanners to maintain color consistency. The KeyColor S, for smaller presses, is also integrated with an X-Rite IntelliTrax scanning system, demonstrating closed-loop press controls.
Welas segmented ink fountain blades are displayed in the EPG and Agfa Graphics booths.
"For decades we've been helping printers who use EPG ink control systems to speed up makeready, achieve consistent color, and save money," says Peter Griffin, President, EPG. "Now printers using any ink control system on any press also have cost-effective presetting and closed loop control solutions available to them with new Adelphi technology. Our closed-looping demonstrations with X-Rite in the Agfa Graphics booth will be especially helpful to printers."
