EFI has demonstrated a new version of its Fiery ProServer for its Cretaprint 2.0 ceramic printer, which it claims will boost productivity and improve colour precision.
It has gained a Smart Ink Saving feature that uses the actual ink costs, as input by users, to calculate the most affordable ink combination possible for each pixel of a design. The ProServer already uses the proven Fiery ColorWise feature that can reduce ink costs by up to 15% compared with ICC production methods.
There’s also a new CMYK+spot colour mode, with the ProServer supporting both standard and special-effect ink sets.
This latest version gains faster processing and profiling speeds as well as supporting the latest Windows and Mac operating systems. It also boasts full Turkish language support plus support for simplified Chinese characters.
José Luis Ramon Moreno, vice president and general manager of EFI Cretaprint, commented: “EFI is committed to drive the continued transition from analogue to digital manufacturing in the industrial ceramic decoration market.”
