Product Code: PRINTDC

Be the first to review this product



In today´s competitive printing industry, increasing pressure to adopt reliable process control means objective color measurement.
With auto scanning densitometers colorbars are quickly measured to provide meaningful press control information.

Printflow DC system processes this information, calculates the necessary press ink fountains adjustments and sends the calculated values to the press remote ink fountains control system.
The press console then automatically adjusts ink fountain keys so that the required densitometric values would be maintained.

This process is called the closed-loop densitometric control. Printflow DC employs both the benfits of CIP3 compatibility (Digital Ink Preset System) and advanced closed-loop color management to ensure accurate and consistent color.


Presses reach correct color density more quickly and hold color throughout the run.



Printflow DC consists of:



Printflow DC Ink Preset Software

This software accepts image area coverage information generated by DIPS Converter software.
This information is processed by Printflow DC for the automatic CIP3 preset of press ink fountains keys by a press console.
This permits shorter set-up times, less material consumption as well as less wear and tear of a press.  


Printflow DC Color Control Software

Printflow DC gives press operators quality control feedback. Printflow DC Color Control Software processes the solid densities measured by a scanning densitometer.
The software compares the actual solid densities with the target ones. If the density is found outside the set limit Printflow DC calculates the appropriate ink feed ratio and gives this information to the press console. The press console automatically adjusts the ink fountains keys in order to hold color for an entire press run.
This enables prints to match clients OK or reference sheet.  


Printflow DC Press Connection

Printflow DC Press Connection secures the communication with printing machines consoles.
There are different press connection solutions for different printing machines consoles.
One solution enables both the Prepress-to-Press as well as the Scanning Densitometer-to-Press Connectivity.

Printflow DC Computer

The system is operated from the touch panel or the keyboard of a personal computer
