Vraag en aanbod, een deel van de economie zeker? Wie die geheimzinnige verkoper of strateeg al weken, ook mag zijn, want het lijkt me eerder één persoon dan meerdere.

Alles verloopt tot nu toe zoals het zou moeten bij het moederbedrijf, af en toe een PR en soms andere nieuwtjes wat betreft de samenwerkingen! De fonts draaien goed en printheads bij Meteor eerder op 200% vollast etc ...




Hybrid Software Announces New Cloud-Based Tool for HP Label & Packaging Customers at DScoop
Wednesday, March 28, 2018




HYBRID Software is pleased to announce a new product to the HP PrintOS community: PACKZalyzer. PACKZalyzer is based on the powerful tools for PDF analysis and correction from HYBRID’s PACKZ PDF editor, which have been paired with an intuitive and easy-to-use cloud-based application to prepare label & packaging files for production. PACKZalyzer will correct common file-related issues that occur in many package designs and will give the PrintOS community an integrated web-based file inspection tool for additional areas of concern, such as barcode information. HYBRID Software brings many years of experience in prepress for labels and packaging and is excited to be able to offer this to the entire PrintOS community.

PACKZalyzer will allow order entry or customer service personnel to receive files from clients and get them ready for production before they enter the prepress department. This is achieved through advanced PDF analysis technology from HYBRID Software’s PACKZ Native PDF editing software, combined with automated correction of files derived from its CLOUDFLOW workflow system. PACKZalyzer also produces a visual report that can be viewed in a web browser to answer the common questions on whether the files received are ready to print digitally or require corrections before printing. As an example, supplied barcodes are scanned and information relating to barcodes such as style, bar width reduction, magnification and number are reported in an easy-to-view report that links directly from each barcode.

According to Guido Van der Schueren, HYBRID’s Chairman, “We are pleased to see technology from HYBRID’s PACKZ PDF editor being applied in HP’s PrintOS cloud. PACKZ has over 2,000 seats in production to date, but through PrintOS we can reach many more customers with this technology.”

Attendees of DScoop Dallas can visit HYBRID Software in Booth 79 for a personal demo of PACKZalyzer.

Dat massaal geblok is al een tijd aan de gang, met name begonnen begin februari. Onder andere die beruchte 22 K, nu nog 12 K van destijds op 3.06 €. Daarna werd er tot op heden meer en meer afgeblokt in grotere volumes en nog, (cfr het boekje) en gelijktijdig bestens verkocht. Ik herinner me begin deze maand nog een bestens aankoop van 15 K (zie bovenstaande), sneller dan het licht was die terug gevuld tot 3 €? In GLOG-normen is 15 K aankoop niet weinig, want hiermee kun je gerust 10 cent en meer hoger staan!

Aan de manier van doen en laten lijken deze handelingen uit één en dezelfde hoek te komen? Het is maar een idee, maar het is en blijft op zijn minst een apart verschijnsel, wat hiervan de reden ook is? Als er überhaupt al een reden is?

Xitron Announces Digital Front End Support for Inkjet Presses Using GIS Electronics Development completed for Fuji Dimatix, Ricoh, Kyocera, Toshiba, Xaar, & Konica Minolta printheads


ANN ARBOR, Mich. - March 28, 2018 - PRLog -- Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has announced the completion of a development project that results in Xitron support for inkjet presses designed with drive electronics by Global Inkjet Systems (GIS). The digital front end includes the popular Navigator RIP based on the Harlequin Host Renderer platform and the client-server properties of Navigator Workflow Server.

Working with one of their many inkjet OEMs, a Navigator DFE was installed and field tested driving a new production press with Kyocera printheads. "Everything performed exactly to specification and the press is printing at full rated speed," said Eric Nelsen, Xitron's VP of product development.

Successful completion of the project means that the Navigator DFE drives presses using GIS electronics with Fuji Dimatix, Ricoh, Kyocera, Toshiba, Xaar, or Konica Minolta printheads. Integration of the Navigator DFE provides inkjet press manufacturers a stable, proven RIP and workflow system capable of driving the press with exceptional color control.

"We are delighted to be working with Xitron. The completion of this development means that more users can benefit from the Navigator DFE," said Debbie Thorp, Business Development Director at GIS. "Support for GIS-based systems is essential due to the variety of inkjet heads driven by their electronics," added Nelsen. "Their entire catalog of inkjet press manufacturers can now take advantage of Xitron's powerful Navigator workflow platform."

Screening Software Drives Inkjet Quality

David Zwang of Zwang & Company joins us for an initial look at an interesting new screening software development that significantly improves the quality of inkjet imaging. The software referenced is only available as an option from an OEM as part of their RIP, or as a component in a custom-developed (bespoke) hybrid inkjet printing solution. One more item to place on your checklist when talking to OEMs about print quality.

Unique Screening Software Solution that Drives Quality in Labels and Packaging
By David Zwang

In the WhatTheyThink.com series on Bespoke Process and Manufacturing, we have been looking at the drivers for bespoke and hybrid production solutions for labels and packaging. With some of the latest introductions by Global Graphics, we believe that rate of adoption may increase.

For those of you not familiar with Global Graphics, the company has been one of the primary RIP OEMs, along with Adobe, since 1988 with its formerly ScriptWorks, now Harlequin, RIPs. Unlike Adobe, Global Graphics is a comparatively small company and has always used that to its advantage in developing unique state-of-the-art solutions. As an OEM, one of its largest and long-term clients is HP which includes Harlequin RIPs in most of their production presses. Global Graphics also works with other printer manufacturers.

Global Graphics has always prided itself on developing software solutions that address quality and productivity issues. The Harlequin Host Renderer is the fastest PDF renderer on the market, which is what makes it perfect for high-performance production inkjet presses. For years, the Harlequin ColorPro color engine has supported extensive color management functions beyond the normal ICC profile support, to include device link, HiFi and extended gamut support, which has made it an ideal choice for labels and packaging. Global Graphics provides multi-level screening in two separate products, the Harlequin RIP and ScreenPro, which is a standalone screening engine launched in 2016. Multi-level screening varies the amount of ink delivered from the inkjet head in any one location.

From 2012, with the rapid development and adoption of production inkjet technology, new inkjet press vendors started approaching them to see if they could develop a solution that would address some of the inherent anomalies in inkjet imaging. Global Graphics started working with many of them individually to find fixes for each of them. During the process, the company realized that many of the fixes were very similar, so it started to work on a solution that could address over 80% of the common problems in inkjet output quality. What it found can be seen in the magnification examples below.

Global Graphics found that “irregular drop positioning leads to drops ‘randomly’ coalescing on the media,” according to Harlequin CTO Martin Bailey. They were able to break it down into two distinct groups of media behavior. The first is reasonably absorbent and/or wettable media like paper and inkjet coated, etc., which image with a grainy appearance. The second is non-absorbent and poorly wettable media like flexible plastics, metal, etc., which produce a mottle effect triggered by ink shrinkage during drying and curing.

While most of the equipment manufacturers were looking at solving these problems either mechanically or through ink-limiting techniques and ink development, Global Graphics decided to look at using its years of screening expertise and developed halftone screening that would mitigate most of these effects. The first case is addressed with a screening called Pearl, and Mirror is used for the second case.

This solution has been made available to both the Harlequin RIP and ScreenPro OEM clients, like the Durst Group, which is using the Harlequin RIP and the ScreenPro screening engine to optimize data driving the new Durst Tau 330 digital and packaging presses, Xitron, who offers RIP solutions to many inkjet solution manufacturers, as well as HP and many of the other Harlequin OEM clients.

They are now offering Advanced Inkjet Screens to other inkjet printhead and press manufacturers as a replacement for existing screening engines regardless of the RIP they are using in their DFEs. This is a significant development and stands to increase the adoption of production inkjet in higher quality print and packaging applications across many different media choices.

For those of you who grew up with film or glass screens or recall the “screening wars” of the 1990s, you will recall the debates of which screen shapes and dot placements provided the best output in different conditions. In discussing this new development with Bailey, it seems we are coming full circle, and what was old is new again…

More to Come …
I would like to address your interests and concerns in future articles as it relates to the Bespoke manufacturing of Print, Packaging and Labels, and how if at all it drives Industry 4.0. If you have any interesting examples of bespoke manufacturing, I am anxious to hear about them. Please feel free to contact me at david@zwang.com with any questions, suggestions or examples of interesting applications.

Global Graphics launches new inkjet screen apps
By Rhys Handley, Wednesday 04 April 2018
https://www.printweek.com/print-week/pr ... creen-apps



Global Graphics Software is endeavouring to iron out the kinks of inkjet printing with the release of two new screen software applications that improve performance on a range of substrates.

Launched earlier this month, the two screen packages, Pearl and Mirror, can be applied to any print workflow and are available for press vendors to add to their existing ranges of inkjet presses as well as those currently being developed.

Pearl is an application for advanced dispersed (FM/stochastic) screen printing, intended to improve printing on absorbent substrates, such as paper and corrugated board, for packaging and labels. Mirror is intended for use with non-absorbent flexible packaging substrates, such as plastic films and tin cans.

“We have worked on inkjet technology for the past few years, including the development of our Harlequin RIP,” said product manager Tom Mooney. “But we have customers with their own workflow who did not want to change their setup in order to incorporate our software – and these new developments function as add-ons.

“Testing with about a dozen vendors, we saw that it is all in the substrate and produced two solutions to the two distinct problems we perceived of absorbent and non-absorbent materials."

Pearl is designed to correct a tendency for streaking on absorbent substrates due to drops coalescing on the surface, especially in the case of mid- and three-quarter tones.

Mirror is designed with a microstructure, which counters the mottling, or 'orange peel' effect often seen when solid colours are used on non-absorbent substrates. It can also be used with dense inks such as metallics to stop the print interfering with the reflection of a shiny substrate.

Mooney said: “The products are named for the smooth finish and flat effect they facilitate on inkjet printing.

“While digital print quality is not yet up there with litho and other conventional methods, it is rapidly growing and improving. Manufacturers keep coming to us asking to help improve their quality and we are helping to bring inkjet closer to that with our products.”

Global Graphics will continue to work on a number of inkjet-related developments throughout 2018. The Cambridge-based UK wing of the firm employs 120 people and the international group saw revenue of €205m (£181m) last year.

Xaar 1201

Berichtdoor K/w » 05 Apr 2018 18:32

Na een uitstekende beursdag, en de Q1 resultaten in het verschiet, was het herstel en volume toch maar aan de lauwe kant!



Taking a walk around @ShanghaiAd last week, it was great to see so many OEMs showcasing our Xaar 1201 printhead for #graphics, #signs and #textile printing #MultipleMarkets

Hier gaan we zéker de volgende weken nog meerdere "positieve" PR's mogen lezen, (vanuit XAAR).
Die XAAR 1201 is één van de blockbusters van de printheads, klinkt misschien raar, maar is wel zo!
