Rutherford develops new closed loop colour solution

Rutherford Graphic Products, which develops closed-loop color control systems, has teamed up with X-Rite Pantone to create ExactLoop, a new closed-loop color control solution designed to help commercial and offset packaging printers manage colour on-press automatically.

ExactLoop is designed to be used with X-Rite’s eXact Scan spectrophotometer, which itself simplifies the regular monitoring of press runs by measuring color bars press-side. ExactLoop can take the spectral measurement data and make automatic adjustment to the ink keys on press, leading to predictable, repeatable colour.

“The combination of eXact Scan’s easy-to-use scanning features with ExactLoop makes digitally-driven, closed-loop color control an affordable reality for printers of all sizes and budgets,” comments Jay Rutherford, President of Rutherford Graphic Products. “Bringing these two technologies together allows for a smooth-running, advanced color-control solution that is integrated, regardless of the model of press or the prepress workflow that is in place.”

Rutherford has previously developed other solutions that work in conjunction with X-Rite devices, including IntelliLoop, a closed-loop colour control solution that works in conjunction with X-Rite’s InteiilTrax and which allows for reading ink key openings.

All these products will be shown at Graph Expo, where they will also be demonstrated working in sync with Alwan’s colour management software.
