QuadTech’s latest color workflow solution for packaging printers

QuadTech at China Print 2017

QuadTech will present its extensive range of color management, register control and defect management solutions at China Print 2017

AuadTech will present its extensive range of color management, register control and defect management solutions at China Print 2017 that will be held from 9-13 May in Beijing. Alongside the featured portfolio at the show, visitors to the QuadTech stand will receive live demonstrations including QuadTech’s latest color workflow solution for packaging printers, ColorTrackT, launched at last year’s drupa.

For packaging presses, QuadTech presents Color Measurement with SpectralCamT, an inline system offering exacting color on a variety of substrates. Smart spectrophotometer technology enables the system to quickly detect and analyze colorimetric and density variations from targets located anywhere within the printed product, while the press is running.

China printColor Measurement with DeltaCamT, launched at last year’s drupa, makes advanced, inline spectral measurement affordable to individual Packaging print houses. ColorTrackT is a new color management software for flexo and gravure packaging applications. With a variety of options for hand-held and inline configurations, the software facilitates fast, accurate press-side correction of ink formulations. Without any hardware modifications to the press, ColorTrack automates the process of delivering absolute consistency from press-to-press, shift-to-shift, and plant-to-plant.

The live ColorTrack demonstrations will be used to introduce seven ‘color management breakthrough’ technologies. Those are pre-laminate/post-laminate color support, colortrack press-side recipe correction module, ink strength/anilox color correction, spot color tone value calculation to iso 20654, enhanced color measurement through strip scanning, simplified ink quantity tracking via patented ‘virtual scales’ and complete, simplified workflow.

Karl Fritchen, president of QuadTech, comments, “China Print is one of the leading exhibitions in the print industry and we are excited about participating in this year’s show in Beijing. With printing and converting businesses all over the world continually facing pressure to improve competitiveness and profitability while adding further customer value, the show offers QuadTech the ideal platform to demonstrate how our products enable printers to meet these challenges by taking better control of their print production.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
