QuadTech has formed a new partnership with the Gallus Group of Switzerland to provide QuadTech’s closed-loop colour control and colour measurement systems for Gallus’ offset, flexo and gravure presses.
“Gallus has vast market experience and the widest customer base in the label printing industry. However, we recognized the opportunity to partner with QuadTech to provide our customers with state-of-the-art spectral colour measurement and colour control systems,” stated Dr. Thomas Weber, Supplier Relationship Management at Gallus.
The initial integration plan between the two companies focuses on the QuadTech Color Control System with SpectralCam, which provides automated inline, closed-loop colour control for offset operations. SpectralCam adjusts ink keys to maintain specified colour targets on the fly and at full press speeds.
Flexo and gravure printers can also leverage the QuadTech Color Measurement System with SpectralCam for inline monitoring of all packaging substrates, including challenging translucent, transparent and reflective films. Colour variations, explains QuadTech, are sent to the operator in real-time to change colour specifications, eliminating press stoppages and the manual process of removing sections of the web to measure colour.
