Colorgate, a leader in digital textile printing solutions, is set to present its comprehensive solution portfolio for the ceramic industry at the booths of Durst and Metis Systems at Tecnargilla 2018, in hall D1, stand 155 and hall D1, booth 152 respectively. The expo will be held from September 24-28, 2018, at the Rimini expo centre, in Italy.

At Durst’s stand, the joint dedicated solution for the ceramics industry will be demonstrated. In cooperation with Metis Systems, a leader in high-quality scanners, Colorgate will present the 3D Surface Director, a complete solution for digital surface design.

Manufacturers of ceramic tiles can now not only benefit from the proven quality of the Durst Gamma series, but thanks to the integration of Colorgate’s Ceramic Productionserver (CPS) also from an optimised workflow, accurate colour rendering, and highly efficient and colour-consistent reproduction of existing wall or floor tile designs, according to a press release.

The Rapid Spectro Cube represents another revolution in the digital printing process. The RSC is a colorimetric scanning and measuring system using a high-resolution CCD sensor and is connected to Colorgate’s CPS. This combination acts as an extremely fast and highly accurate colour capture system, providing colour profiles for printer calibration and colour characterisation as well as separation profiles to automatically separate individual designs or design series into the required colour channels of the respective production process or a particular production line configuration.

Colorgate and Metis will present the 3D Surface Director, a brand new turn-key solution targeting designers and manufactures of surface products that consists of the unique SURF 3D digitisation hardware and a complete software suite to acquire, transform, and output complete surface description data.

The company will present the CPS, the central print data management system. Colorgate’s CPS gives the highest process efficiency from design to the final ceramic product. The digital end-to-end workflow offers a secure import and conversion (n-Color) of designs and colour data as well as the creation of separations with 3-8 channels.

Colorgate will show the FPRM (patented Fingerprint technology) and RSC (Rapid Spectro Cube), the solutions for digital ceramic decorations. The RSC is a high resolution measuring and scanning device which can perform colorimetric scans and read targets printed on structured and flat tile surfaces. Up to now, ICC profiling has only been used for device-specific colour characterisation in order to achieve the best possible reproduction of any originals on profiled devices. Fingerprint technology extends this conventional approach of the graphic arts industry and uses a new method for synchronous design specification and print process characterisation in industrial surface decoration.

Colorgate experts Andrea Panizzut and Jan Seguda, product manager industrial printing, will be present at both Durst and Metis booths throughout the trade show and will be happy to answer any questions you may have about Colorgate solutions. (GK)
