Enhanced GSE Ink manager software for improved job control

July 20, 2018  By PrintAction Staff

Ink logistics provider GSE has enhanced its Ink manager software by introducing an optional module designed to bring improved control of job procedures and costs, as well as better traceability in label and packaging printing.

GSE Ink manager software, the company says, will help converters minimize ink-related waste, providing improved ink yields, enhanced reporting and business planning and reduced setup times. The new accompanying management software module, GSE Article management, features two control elements to help the operator achieve accurate cost estimates when printing a design, or ‘article’, the company explains. Additionally, its ink calculator function automatically determines the amounts of colour needed for printing each article. As well as volume, it can also calculate the printed surface area covered by each colour, based on the length, width and coverage factor. GSE Ink manager software is now standard with GSE’s complete range of Colorsat dispensing systems for flexo, gravure and screen inks.

GSE Article management also allows the operator to define or describe specific procedures and equipment used for printing the article, such as required viscosity level, selected anilox roll, designated press and press operator. The software also records all changes, so a traceable history of design changes, by revision stage, can be provided on demand.
When the article is re-ordered, this information can be instantly recalled, which GSE says will help assure identical colour results with the correct amount of ink, while the operator only needs to enter the desired number of articles to be printed.


The solution will be showcased at Labelexpo Americas 2018.
