Heidelberg updates Prinect Inpress Control

Heidelberg has released v2 of its Prinect Inpress Control. This is a spectrophotometric inline color measurement system that can be installed on a Speedmaster press to provide on-the-fly measurement and control of both color and register.

This update boasts a faster measuring and control algorithm that substantially cuts makeready times and paper waste during setup. Initial users report further 10 to 20 percent less paper waste and significantly increased productivity. It can be installed on Speedmaster presses in the XL 75, SX 102, CX 102, XL 106, XL 145, and XL 162 series. The system is ideal for industrial printers of short runs with frequent job changes who want to deliver quick, cost-effective, and high-quality results. Recent Speedmaster presses already equipped with Prinect Inpress Control can be upgraded to the latest system.

There’s an automated register and quality measurement process, which removes the need for manual intervention. It also makes it possible to measure metallised and transparent substrates with opaque white below the print control strip. It can be used to measure spot colours, which can be derived directly from a colour sample or selected from the integrated spot colour database and controlled.

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
