X-Rite to Showcase Color Services and End-to-End Workflows at INFOFLEX 2016
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., February 23, 2016 – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced it is a Platinum Sponsor at FTA Forum & INFO*FLEX 2016, March 6-9, 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas. In booth 107, X-Rite Pantone will showcase the latest color quality management solutions and professional color services designed to provide packaging converters the tools and resources needed to implement color standards and workflows across their business.
“Many brand owners are moving towards digital color communication as a means to achieve more stringent color consistency,” said Adrián Fernández, Vice President, PantoneLive, X-Rite Pantone. “As a result, color communications and process controls become a critical component to getting color right. This year at INFO*FLEX, the X-Rite Pantone Global Color Services Team will demonstrate flexible solutions to migrate to digital color communications and discuss standard processes to achieve predictable, repeatable color on flexographic presses. With the right color services, converters and printers can improve quality and customer relations.”
The X-Rite Pantone booth will feature color specification, measurement and ink formulation solutions that improve color management across entire packaging workflow. PantoneLIVE, a cloud-based solution, helps brand owners and printers define and store spectral values for color palettes, ensuring accurate, consistent color regardless of the type of inks, substrates and printing technologies. ColorCert®: X-Rite Edition, a color reporting tool, provides statistical process control for defining, monitoring and communicating production quality across multiple facilities or suppliers. X-Rite eXact™, an award-winning handheld spectrophotometer, helps packaging converters understand and manage color using both short and long (2” to 44”) color strips commonly embedded in flexographic printing. In addition, X-Rite will discuss fixed color palette or extended color gamut printing.
