Pitman, An Agfa Company

Pressroom Closed Loop Color System

The Pressroom Closed Loop Color System from Pitman, an Agfa Company, (Booth 1227) is a complete workflow system composed of four components—Agfa’s :Apogee Ink Save (gray components replacement software); Essex Product Group’s (EPG) Key Color ADELPHI AutoSet (ink key presetting software) and KeyColor ADELPHI AutoKey (closed loop color control software); X-Rite Pantone’s IntelliTrax (Automated Color Measurement System) and Pitman’s Color Manage Printing Solutions.

Through workflow integration, this system, being introduced at GRAPH EXPO 2011, manages color files (InkSave—ink weights & alternative separations), converts digital (CTP) output to preset ink fountain keys on the press console (EPG—AutoSet), automatically scans the offset sheet (X-Rite Pantone—IntelliTrax) in less than 15 seconds, and transfers scanned color data (EPG—ADELPHI AutoKey, close loop) back to the press console for continuous monitoring and correction. The foundation of this system is Pitman’s Color Manage Printing Program (Intelligence) which provides workflow assessments, technology solutions and recommendations for optimal color managed printing.

The Pressroom Closed Loop Color System optimizes legacy and new offset presses’ capabilities resulting in overall paper waste reduction, ink and time savings, reduced manpower , productivity gains, more jobs per day, improved marketability, and increased revenue.
