Neff Packaging Solutions Installs First Prinect Image Control Next Generation from Heidelberg
Neff Packaging Solutions, Simpsonville, KY, has become the first U.S. company to install the latest generation of Heidelberg's Prinect Image Control spectral color measurement and quality control system. Full Article: http://www.us.heidelberg.com/www/html/en/content/articles/us_news/news_20120614
"We now have the technology to significantly reduce our makeready time, as well as to reduce the number of sheets needed to attain color," said Jim Younkin, Vice President and General Manager.
The new Image Control system is used primarily with the company's new 8-color Speedmaster CD 102 UV press in a double coating configuration. Neff retains an older version of Image Control for use with its 6-color Speedmaster XL 105. When necessary, both systems can be used interchangeably on either press, adding tremendous flexibility.
"Ultimately, we are reducing our costs and improving our turnaround time," Younkin continued. "We spend less time pulling fewer sheets, have better control of the image area, and can measure color with greater accuracy than ever before, thanks to the system's enhanced resolution for spectral image measurement. Best of all, the system generates detailed reports we can use both for internal analysis, as well as to show customers exactly what we have accomplished. The software is also extremely user-friendly."
