Weymouth, MA – CMYK Distributors, Inc., the exclusive North American distributor of Digital Information’s InkZone ink-presetting and closed-loop technology, is pleased to announce the launch of InkZone Inline Sheetfed for sheetfed offset presses in Booth 445 at Print 2017, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL on September 10 – 14, 2017

CMYK Distributors and Digital Information introduced InkZone Inline Web for web presses at Graph Expo 2016.   With the launch of the InkZone Inline Sheetfed solution at Print 2017, it is now possible to retrofit legacy offset presses from most major press manufacturers including Heidelberg, KBA, Komori, Manroland, etc.  with InkZone’s state-of-the-art, inline color measuring system.  InkZone Inline Sheetfed is mounted onto the offset press, measuring the color bar in real-time inside the running machine.  In connection with InkZone’s online ink-key presets, customers will experience a new level of speed transitioning between jobs and a reduction in paper waste.

In addition to the launch of InkZone Inline Sheetfed, CMYK Distributors joins Digital Information in announcing the latest iteration of InkZone Move.  InkZone Move 4’s offset print color measurement and reporting combines a sleek user interface with an open software architecture, bringing new quality to color measurement and reporting.  InkZone Move 4 interfaces with new and legacy spectrophotometers and densitometers from X-Rite, Techkon and Grapho-Metronics.  The new InkZone Move 4 reporting option allows pressmen to check the printing quality of single printed sheets, as well as to complete press runs within current offset printing standards. 

Finally, hitting a target market of thousands of Komori offset presses worldwide featuring the legacy PDC-I and PDC-II color scanning instruments, InkZone introduces InkZone for Komori.  The InkZone for Komori solution addresses a critical need created by the obsolescence of PDC-I and PDC-II.  InkZone for Komori connects with Komori presses, enabling modern color scanning technology from leading scanning systems.  InkZone for Komori is a cost-effective solution that allows Komori shops to keep Komori presses printing up-to-date color quality and to prolong the value of their investment in their presses for years to come.

In addition to these new solutions, CMYK Distributors invites you to visit Booth 445 to check out live demonstrations of our standard product line, and to meet the foremost experts in the field of pressroom automation including:
