EPG will highlight its new KeyColor Adelphi presetting and color scanner interface technology for printers using non-EPG ink control systems at Graph Expo 2011 in booth 3348. In addition, the company is collaborating with X-Rite and Pitman, an Agfa Company on displays that demonstrate closed-loop press controls.
Adelphi AutoSet allows press operators to preset ink fountain keys accurately from digital files, facilitating greater productivity and significant reduction in waste. Adelphi AutoKey closed looping adjusts ink keys according to density readings from scanners to achieve and maintain targeted color consistency. Any ink control system on any press can utilize Adelphi presetting and color scanner technology and thus help reduce job setup costs and production runs.
Visitors to the EPG booth will also see the KeyColor C and KeyColor S ink desks. The KeyColor S, for smaller presses, will be integrated with an X-Rite IntelliTrax on-press automated color management scanning system, demonstrating closed-loop press controls. In the Agfa Graphics booth, 1227, attendees will see the KeyColor E ink controller, also operating with an X-Rite IntelliTrax interface. Welas segmented ink fountain blades will also be displayed at both locations.
“A visit to EPG at Graph Expo will be a worthwhile experience to learn about new ways to speed makeready, achieve consistent color, and save money,” says Peter Griffin, president, EPG. “We are a single-source global manufacturer now offering solutions that can help grow business to printers using any press. Our closed-looping demonstrations with X-Rite and Agfa Graphics, two well-known, highly-respected graphic communications companies, will be especially helpful to printers.”
