Prepress & Workflow

Fundamentals debuted at Label Expo

Posted: August 30, 2016

A new software and engineering service for labels and packaging presses will be on show at Label Expo Americas.

The service, Fundamentals, provides inkjet press manufacturers with a single source for key software components and engineering knowledge that’s essential to building a digital front-end to drive  press.

The goal of Fundamentals is to help reduce time to market and engineering costs by breaking through the common barriers that prevent manufacturers from getting out to market on time, according to a release.

The release says, Fundamentals can also be applied to existing presses to overcome common quality issues, such as poor quality barcodes or small text, or, defects caused by mottling and chaining, irrespective of other software choices that may have been made. It provides manufacturers with an alternative to an Esko workflow or can be used alongside an Esko RIP.

“We’ve been working with several manufacturers who are pushing the boundaries of inkjet technology as they bring new presses to market”. says Martin Bailey, CTO, Global Graphics Software. “We’ve created Fundamentals to respond to the problems they face in the development phase of a new press which they often can’t solve on their own. We can step in and help them out with our combination of best of breed software and our new BreakThrough Engineering Service. The goal is to breakthrough every technical barrier, accelerating the press to market.”
