X-Rite: Sharing colors throughout the print supply chain
At PACK EXPO, X-Rite will be present at a workstation on the Esko booth showing both their color measurement tools as well as PantoneLIVE. PantoneLIVE delivers an end-to-end color management and color communication solution that, for the first time, addresses the needs and requirements of every single discipline within the print supply chain. Visitors can learn about PantoneLIVE support within Esko’s workflows. The brand manager will see an accurate representation of on-press color early in the design process, while converters can be assured of first-time-right color proofing and easy-to-match color on press. Experience with beta sites that have been testing the solution show very positive ROIs.
New: Kongsberg XN offers power and flexibility for packaging sample making
The Kongsberg XN is easily the most versatile digital finishing device ever introduced. Working with just about any material, the Kongsberg XN is perfect for any job or application. It is available in seven different sizes from 66” x 50” to 87” x 258”.
The Kongsberg XN can be easily configured for the widest range of applications: from kiss-cutting to heavy-duty milling. Most important, the new Kongsberg XN can be equipped with its very powerful, optional 3kW, water-cooled milling spindle, the MultiCUT- HP, which offers up to three times more milling productivity. Even when processing the most challenging materials, it keeps a productive, consistent speed.
A choice of five tool heads and a full assortment of insert tools guarantee versatility. Newly developed tools include solid board and corrugated paper-core board v-notching inserts. The Kongsberg XN offers a variety of proven options including help with registration with i-cut Vision Pro, tool heads and tool inserts to extend flexibility, productivity add-ons like a material conveyor, an AutoFeeder or a Roll-Off unit.
“We look forward to showing converters and corrugated packagers at PACK EXPO how they can produce work more efficiently, while finding new, high-value, profitable services to offer,” concludes Quinlan. “Over the past twelve months we have launched an extensive range of innovative solutions for brand owners and converters, and the industry has responded by making our products the market leaders in packaging pre-production. We continue to look for ways to help our customers streamline their operations and improve and expand their businesses.”
