pressSIGN-Pro is a G7® Certified System that measures, controls, monitors and evaluates the colour printing process for litho, digital, flexo and gravure.
pressSIGN-Pro features a complete set of analysis tools to improve press and operator performance identifying issues of both quality and wastage.
Each pressSIGN-Pro installation includes the pressSIGN-Pro server, pressSIGN-Pro client, a pressSIGN-Trends client and pressSIGN-Mobile client. Additional clients can be purchased.
G7 has become the de facto methodology for attaining consistent color results. But all too ofter, the G7 qualification run is a once-a-year event rarely duplicated during daily production. PressSIGN is a G7 certified system that enables printers to attain and maintain G7 on every print job and no need for wasteful fingerprint runs. Track G7 gray balance on every job. Create NPDC gray balance curves and import them into every rip and workflow on the planet. Make G7 a daily reality, not a once-a-year special event.
PressSIGN scores both CMYK and spot colors for all printing conditions, including solid ink LAB values, TVI, Gray Balance, Overprint and more.
