Ink Zone Software

The concept for presetting the ink keys on offset printing press is making life easier for printers:

Printers are saving money and gaining time; at the same time, they are achieving considerable increases in quality and productivity.InkZone smoothes the way into a future with JDF: JDF files supplied from the workflow or bitmap or CIP3 data that has been converted by DI-Plot into the Job Definition Format are then converted by InkZone into the required preset control commands for the specific machine. As a direct continuation of the preset function, the Closed Loop technology is responsible for non-stop control of the press and compliance with print production standards.

DI-Plot Software

With JDF enabled DI-Plot, we have designed outstanding proofing software for a wide range of digital offset printing machines, computer-to-plate systems and film imagesetters. Any color printer or plotter can be used for printout.

DI-Plot has finally closed the gap between prepress and printing in the digital workflow. For the first time, it is possible to achieve a reliable Okay-to-Print based on the original data after it’s been ripped and separated. The proofs are inexpensive and yet of the highest possible precision. With DI-Plot, production reliability can be stepped up to an unprecedented degree.

About Digital presetting of the ink keys

InkZone extends DI-Plot, the Rip-independent form proof solution, by a new component and brings manufacture-independent workflow all the way to the press. Now, bitmap data calculated by DI-Plot and used for the formproof can be simultaneously used for presetting the ink zones on the press. InkZone can be used with all popular press types. Existing offset machines without digitally preset ink zones can be upgraded with InkZone simply and economically
