CGS Publishing Technologies, a world leader in digital proofing, colour management and production workflows, has announced the official UK launch of its ORIS Flex Pack // Web contract proofing solution. The new bundled package provides a cost-effective, on-demand packaging proofing solution for packaging designers, brands and creative agencies. It has been exclusively developed as an alternative to slow and expensive legacy systems for packaging design proofing and was recently successfully showcased at the Packaging Innovations show in London. The full package includes the ORIS Flex Pack // Web software a Roland VersaCAMM VS-series wide format printer/cutter, an ORIS heating unit plus a full range of proofing media and the ability to connect to the Esko Color Engine spot colour database. The solution will be sold in the UK via Revolution (www.flex-pack.co.uk).
Says Heiner Mueller, Key Account Director Europe, CGS: “There is a clear need for creative agencies, brands and packaging designers to standardise colour management in the packaging proofing sector to maintain competitiveness and ensure consistency between proofs and output product. At CGS, we have worked hard over the past couple of years to bring to market a flexible, high quality and cost effective packaging proofing solution that could accurately represent Pantone® colours and believe we have now achieved this with the ORIS Flex Pack // Web. It is a true turnkey solution and will provide creative packaging designers, repro houses and in-house packaging departments with huge savings in consumable costs and production time without any compromise on the quality or the consistency of the packaging proof.”
In line with this, CGS has also unveiled a new set of special CMYK, plus Orange and Green XG inks, plus the solution also includes the capability to print metallic and white.
Continues Mueller: “With the new inks and media range, we have I believe for the first time in the industry, a genuinely complete bundled solution for halftone or contone packaging proofing and mock up production and there is nothing like this solution in the marketplace today. The new XG inks have a dramatically extended gamut, are clearer and brighter and offer a larger printable colour space, so that almost all Pantone® colours can be reproduced to contract proofing standards. This allows the ORIS Flex Pack // Web solution to deliver contract quality proofs and prototypes for any kind of flexible packaging.”
