Oris Packaging Innovations is launching its Flex Pack/Web solution in the UK. This is described as “a cost effective turnkey solution for any contract-quality packaging proofing and mock up production.”
It’s a web-based system that includes Oris’ 4D colour management process at its core. It offers integrated soft proofing, proof certification and halftone support with any kind of 1-bit file format. There’s an optional connection to the Esko Color Engine spot colour database.
It’s been twinned with a Roland VersaCamm VS series printer through a custom interface, which supports all the normal printer functions, including its Pantone colour libraries. The Oris solution includes a white and metallic ink as well as orange and green, with the specially developed high-pigmented XG eco-solvent Inks. These have the ability to shrink-wrap with 75% reduction available on 1 axis.
The solution also includes a new TransferFilm, a mono-layer crystal-clear material that can be transferred at low temperatures on almost any original media, using a standard laminator.
Thus the solution as a whole allows the production of contract quality proofs and prototypes on media, specifically designed to match original stock used in flexible packaging, ranging from aluminium foil to shrink film.
