Is your operation as efficient as it can be?

In many converting operations, color consistency can be a challenge. Color that does not meet expectations causes delays, waste and rework. Automation and process control in the pressroom are important steps toward achieving consistent color, job-to-job and day-to-day.

While you are at it, don’t forget the ink room. With more small-lot jobs with tight delivery schedules, your ink room is working harder. Make it easier and repeatable on them by reducing the number of drawdowns and approval cycles through faster, more accurate ink formulation and better use of ink leftovers.

UK-based Ultimate Packaging provides flexible packaging solutions to a broad array of customers, including leading retailers such as Asda, a wholly owned subsidiary of Wal-Mart. Partnering with X-Rite, the company maximized press efficiencies with 200% improvement in quality using X-Rite solutions. This resulted in substantial time savings, reduction in ink and paper waste, and maintenance of a consistent quality level.

Your company can achieve the same benefits. Our Color Experts recommend implementing technology to take your production efficiency to the next level, reducing time, cost and waste while increasing capacity:

  • Use a spectrophotometer such as the X-Rite eXact next-generation handheld for advanced color measurement.
  • Add quality control software like Color iQC for real-time color development and control.
  • Use ColorCert for real-time quality control and reporting.
  • By implementing InkFormulation Software, especially in conjunction with ColorCert, you will save time and materials and make ink formulation a more repeatable process.

You’ll quickly gain insight that allows you to streamline processes and achieve better color consistency. The result? You’ll have a data-driven process in place that will drive continuous improvement and make room for more business with the same resources! And the ROI on the investment is remarkable.
