Rutherford Features Closed-Loop Color Management at PRINT 18

Press release from the issuing company

Dayton, Ohio – Rutherford Graphic Products, a leading developer of closed-loop color control systems for offset presses, announces that it will be featuring IntelliLoop™ along with IntelliTrax2 from X-Rite at PRINT 18 on Sept. 31 to Oct 2, 2018, at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. This bundled closed-loop color control solution is designed to assist commercial and offset packaging printers manage color on-press automatically and will be on display in Booth #439.

“Adding one-touch color management at the press console is now an affordable feature for every offset press in a printing operation,” states Jay Rutherford, President of Rutherford Graphic Products. “Rutherford can retrofit most makes, models, and vintages of offset presses with color scanning software and hardware connected to the press console, enabling automated closed-loop color accuracy.” The closed-loop color control solution from Rutherford helps streamline print operations by reducing make-ready times, minimizing ink and substrate waste, and automatically checking output for color drifts.

“When color drift occurs, a closed-loop approach makes it fast and easy to return to acceptable tolerances,” continues Rutherford. “Bringing color automation to older offset presses maximizes performance and extends their value. In this way, commercial printers and offset packaging printers can meet their customer’s demands for color quality, while staying competitive, saving on resources, and meeting tight turnaround schedules.”

Some of the solutions that will be on display in Booth #439 include:

  • IntelliLoop is a full-featured closed-loop color control solution that works in conjunction with X-Rite’s IntelliTrax2. Advanced features of IntelliLoop allow for reading ink key openings and sweeps immediately following scans, assuring effective key moves that get to color quickly. There is also a “roll-back” feature permitting key-openings and sweep settings from any previous scan to be automatically loaded.
  • IntelliSet leverages the digitization of color information included in the CIP data from prepress to automatically preset the ink keys, eliminating manual adjustments at the print console.
  • X-Rite IntelliTrax2, an automated color management scanning solution, offering press-side color control and fast color correction on press. It is an ideal solution for high-end, high speed printing operations and supports the latest measurement standards, allowing printers to meet new G7 and PSO/FOGRA process control requirements.

In addition, Rutherford will also be showing new system additions: RG-MultiView, which enables up to six applications to be displayed simultaneously on a large format screen. Also on display will be RG-Proof for content proofing and RG-Digital Microscope for viewing register marks and dot structure.
