Industrial Printing

Ceramic Productionserver

ColorGATE’s CPS works as a central print data management system and thus accomplishes the highest process efficiency from design to final ceramic product. The digital end-to-end workflow offers a secure import and conversion (n-Color) of designs and color data as well as the creation of separations with 3-8 channels.

In combination with ColorGATE’s unique measurement technologies, you get a complete workflow and color management solution dedicated to digital ceramic printing and typical ceramic production environments

Feature of Performance and Technical Highlights

Some of the many challenges in digital ceramic printing are:

  • Variable and non-standardized process elements (ceramic raw materials, engobes, glazes, inks printing systems etc.)
  • Comprehensive production workflows from storage right up to calibration of the firing temperature

Ceramic Productionserver is a complete workflow and color management solution especially for digital ceramic printing with the following features of performance:

  • Maximum color consistency from design to final product with decreased waste production
  • Contains application-oriented functions for all requirements in digital ceramic printing
  • Faster line entries
  • Different color sets and/or glazes without color differences
  • Transfer of know-how to end users (design and production)
  • Guidance and technical assistance through expert support

Technical Highlights

  • Supports all ceramic printing systems available on the market with up to 8 colors
  • Processes all common file formats as well as multichannel data  
  • Linearization and profiling tools especially designed for ceramic printing
  • Reduction of ink consumption through Ink Saver technology for costs optimization and increased process stability
  • RGB and CYMK working space profiles for convenient retouching and color correct preview of multichannel data in Adobe Photoshop
  • Color management with automatic conversion of design data to different production lines

 

 

Modules in Spotlight

ColorGATE offers a variety of modules that allow you to customize your software to meet your specific requirements. Some highlights that are particularly suitable for Ceramic Productionserver are presented here:

Fingerprint Module (FPRM)

Ink Saver

Less Ink – Same Quality

  • Save 10 – 15% ink costs on average
  • No visual losses in quality
  • Stabilization of printing process
  • Improved gray balance
  • Shorter drying times

Retouch Module (RTM)

  • Retouching of print files in image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop
  • Creates a retouch file with a special retouch profile for the best possible soft proof during image editing of multichannel data, e.g. in Photoshop
  • Supports multicolor printing systems with up to eight color channels
  • Works perfectly in combination with the patented Fingerprint technology

Measurement Technolgies

Especially in the industrial area, it is important to be able to achieve high-quality measurement results in the shortest possible time with a wide variety of substrates. Average photospectrometers occasionally need many hours for the measuring process.

With the innovative measuring devices from ColorGATE, it only takes a few minutes and you can scan difficult substrates as well as very small objects (from 1 mm).

In combination with ColorGATE's Ceramic Productionserver, you get a unique total solution for digital ceramic production that also offers a wide range of possibilities to improve the entire production chain - from design to the finished product.


Rapid Spectro Cube

The Rapid Spectro Cube (RSC) is an all-in-one Color Management solution for ultrafast color measuring and ICC profiling for industrial digital printing applications. There are almost no limitations for applying the RSC. Fast and secure high-quality ICC profiling from very small objects is possible, as well as profile processing with any ICC-compatible image editing or RIP software, e.g. Productionserver. The required minimum patch size is as small as 1 mm.

3D Surface Director

Turn real colors, natural structures and light reflexions into new surface products...

The turn-key solution targeting designers and manufactures of surface products that consists of 

  • the unique SURF 3D digitization hardware 
  • a complete software suite to acquire, transform and output complete surface description data.
