Pamarco announces IRIS: new automated proofer
DECEMBER 10, 2018 – As a global leader in automatic and hand-operated proofing systems, Pamarco has been helping printers reproduce their best ink color match on press for many years. What began with hand proofers was followed by automatic proofers paired with doctor blade systems. Today Pamarco is pleased to announce the Iris Precision Proofer, their latest in automation proofing development.
Pamarco worked in conjunction with Flint Inks, a global standard-setter in the production of flexo ink systems, during development and beta testing. This union provided unique insight and input that was implemented in the final design. John Rastetter, Pamarco VP of Flexo Sales and Marketing, commented, “Working with a respected co-supplier to the industry allowed us to validate our design and make improvements for a great final result.” Jeff Ashburn, VP Corrugated & HDPE for Packaging Inks, also stated, “As we all know, color consistency is critical to brand owners, but equally as important is getting press ready ink to press. Increasing productivity and precision proofing is the key.”
We all know color consistency is critical to brand owners, but equally as important is getting press ready ink to press. Increasing productivity and precision proofing is crucial.
Getting consistently correct color on press has long been a thorn in the flexo community’s side. Anilox selection, plate type, substrate, and various other conditions all play a part in hitting LAB targets, but starting with proper, press-ready ink is critical for repeatability and increasing productivity. In response to this need, Pamarco has released its automatic Iris Precision Proofer. Utilizing their well-known hand proofers and hand proofers with doctor blades in this automatic system removes operator inconsistencies and stabilizes output. Speed and impression, along with a selection of anilox rolls built to converter specifications, produce highly consistent results.
