For Immediate Release

 

WEB PRINTING CONTROLS, INC. CHOOSES EPG KEYCOLOR INK CONTROL TECHNOLOGY FOR INTERFACE WITH CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM

 

 

Centerbrook, CT (August 7, 2007)—EPG (Essex Products Group) announces that a KeyColor E remote ink control system has been integrated with a Web Printing Controls, Inc., Lake Barrington, Illinois, Closed Loop Color Plus (CLC) Plus system. The combined technologies are installed on an eight-unit Harris M1000 press. EPG’s KeyColor System will drive the existing Harris DC servo actuators based on input from the CLC.

 

The EPG KeyColor E System is an economical desktop remote ink control system that allows press operators to rapidly and accurately adjust ink key settings on all fountains to assure color control, speed makeready, and reduce waste.  Its design allows it to interface with color-measuring devices, including on-the-web scanners and scanning densitometers. The Web Printing Controls CLC Plus system, an on-the-web scanning device, scans a color bar from a moving web to adjust both color register and inking to target density values. By combining the EPG KeyColor System with the Web Printing Controls Closed Loop Color Plus system the printer is able to automatically maintain consistent color quality.
