GCM’s Kongsberg V20 table, introduced by Esko a little more than one year ago, can be used for both packaging and large-format imaging applications. The V20 system includes FlexiHead technology – attached to a servo axis for controlling tool depth – for cutting and creasing of packaging materials like folding carton and corrugated board. The V20 works with materials of 1,700 x 1,300-mm (66 x 51-inch) format. The Kongsberg installation also includes Esko’s DeskPack collection of packaging prepress plugins for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
GCM also added a new GTI Graphiclite viewing system, using lamps that are manufactured with what the company describes as a unique blend of fluorescent phosphors. GTI explains these lamps, as opposed to other 5000K lamps, result in a superior D50 spectrum with proper colour rendition. The GTI viewing system allows GCM’s faculty and students to better work to ISO Standards.
