EPG remote ink control chosen by Industrial Litografica for metal decorating

A Grupo Industrial company that prints steel plate and aluminum Industrial Litografica has ordered its fourth EPG KeyColor C remote ink control system in one and half years to cope with customer demand for colorful metal decorating on packaging and promotional items, in addition to saving time and reducing waste.

The Mexico-based company also purchased EPG’s AutoSet presetting and AutoKey closed-loop software interfacing with an X-Rite EasyTrax scanner with spectral photometry capabilities, whose technology was integrated into a Crabtree of Gateshead Marquess press.

AutoKey interfacing with an X-Rite scanner helps in maintaining consistency of color throughout the run, according to the company.

Industrial Litografica general manager Juan Carlos Gallegos said the customers want just-in-time service and accurate brand color on every product.

"Since integrating the EPG KeyColor systems and scanning densitometry in 2011, we’ve reduced re-wash of defective sheets and increased overall productivity. Presetting gets us to color much more quickly and closing the loop with the X-Rite scanning systems produces reliable colors," added Gallegos.
