Color management for Print & Packaging Professionals

Printers need to always be in control of color, and print according to quality standards like ISO 12647 or GRACol. But how do you automatically achieve the best result possible, when every ink and substrate combination is different? Color Ware takes the guesswork out of color control, by launching the Press View Printability Test Suite at Drupa 2012.

Based in Wassenaar, The Netherlands, Colorware is an innovative software development company. It specializes in solutions for full color control of all printing processes, and for easy communication of the color behavior of the final printed product to quality managers and print buyers. Colorware’s main product is Press View, a client-server based color control system that enables printers to measure, analyze and control the colors in offset, heatset, flexo, gravure and digital printing processes.

Analyze before you print
Launching its new and improved Printability Test Suite in Press View at Drupa 2012, Color Ware now enables printers to make a complete print analysis before the final print production. This will take all the guesswork out of color quality, as the unique Press View Printability Test analyzes the exact color behavior for any given ink and substrate combination, for all print processes. It only takes a few minutes to measure the data, to analyze the status of a specific ink/paper/press combination and to clearly present the optimum tolerance level of this combination.

Always optimized
The Press View Printability Test will calculate the closest color match and density. It determines the optimum density value and density bandwidth of any specific ink/substrate combination, thus predicting the exact color performance of the ink-of-choice on the selected substrate. This will enable printers to determine the optimum ink layer thickness to print according to the specified quality standard, in wet or dried ink conditions. Press View uses this information to optimize print quality automatically, even in combination with closed loop color control systems.
