CGS and ESKO combine for Packaging Innovations, London 2012
CGS partners with Esko to demonstrate the new ORIS Flex Pack / Web solution for flexible packaging proofing and mock-up production at Packaging Innovations 2012
The solution bundle includes the ORIS software and the Roland VersaCAMM VS-series wide format printer, plus a full range of proofing media and the option to connect to the Esko Color Engine spot colour database. In addition to the newly formulated CMYK inks, plus white and metallic ink, this solution also features Orange and Green XG inks. These new XG inks offer a dramatically extended gamut and larger printable colour space, so that almost all Pantone® colours can be reproduced to contract proofing standards. This allows the ORIS Flex Pack // Web solution to deliver contract quality proofs and prototypes for any kind of flexible or rigid packaging.
Says Heiner Mueller, Key Account Director Europe, CGS: "We are pleased to be partnering with Esko at Packaging Innovations. The exhibition gives us an excellent opportunity to showcase ORIS Flex Pack // Web, our new turnkey solution for flexible packaging proofing and mock-up production, along with the new, revolutionary transfer media. We believe this turn-key system will provide design agencies, repro houses and in-house packaging departments with huge savings in consumable costs and production time without any compromise on the quality or the consistency of the packaging proof."
Says Paul Bates, Esko Business Manager, United Kingdom & Eire: "We're looking forward to working with CGS at Packaging Innovations as it's another great opportunity to show how much Esko has evolved into a colour-focussed company. If the PantoneLIVE project is to succeed then it must be a demonstrably open system and working with CGS is also another clear example of this. Sharing profiles and colour data is essential to consistent global branding and therefore to the value our industry can offer brand owners. Because despite rapid advances in 3D visualisation software for packaging, at the end of the day a tangible, colour accurate final proof is still what every brand owner wants to see, and very likely always will. Therefore it's essential that proof production can be colour managed regardless of print process, and CGS's software and the Roland print solutions will demonstrate the full extent of Esko's open philosophy."
In the UK the ORIS Flex Pack // Web package is offered as a complete solution for the packaging and proofing sector by Revolution. www.revolutiontransfers.co.uk <http://www.revolutiontransfers.co.uk>
