CGS, Roland to Showcase High-End Proofing at Graph Expo
CHICAGO—At GraphExpo, CGS Publishing Technologies International and Roland Corporation will demonstrate a powerful new proofing solution for the packaging industry. Built for affordable, high-quality proofing, the latest version of ORIS Color Tuner // Web will be shown on the Roland VS-420 on CGS’ booth (#432) at McCormick Place, October 3-6, 2010.
The new Roland VersaCAMM VS line, comprising 30-inch, 42-inch and 64-inch variants, adds white and metallic silver ink to traditional process colors. This provides the opportunity to proof and prototype a greater variety of consumer packaging, including elaborate finishing on substrates such as PE and PET plastics, composite materials, transparent and aluminum foils.
When used with ORIS’ precise color matching abilities and ScreenDot technology, the Roland devices are a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional proofing in the packaging industry. The metallic silver ink can be mixed with CMYK to produce a wide range of metallic effects.
Company CEO Trevor Haworth commented, “Following on from our successes with the Roland VersaUV line, we are excited that our close cooperation with Roland DG now extends to two product lines and various sizes of printers giving users the choice and providing significant value to package designers and production companies, finally making the legacy technology that has dominated packaging proofing for so long obsolete.”
Version 1.2 of ORIS Color Tuner // Web fully supports the entire range of the Roland VersaCAMM VS series inkjet printer/cutters featuring Metallic Silver and White ECO-SOL MAX inks. ORIS gives users the choice of continuous or halftone output with the same color accuracy. The ORIS ScreenDot Plus option processes final 1-Bit files or lets the user chose from a number of built-in screen sets and line rulings.
The ORIS-Roland package will be available from CGS beginning in Q4.
