Essex Products Group, Centerbrook, Conn., maker of KeyColor integrated ink control systems, has been named exclusive worldwide distributor of job-presetting and color-scanner interface systems from Colortronix LLC.
Introduced last fall, the products are now marketed by EPG under the Adelphi brand. The agreement expands EPG’s ability to serve printers who use other manufacturers’ ink-control systems or color-measurement equipment. Printers operating with EPG remote ink control systems continue to use KeyColor AutoSet and AutoKey for presetting and closed-loop color control.
“Adelphi technology is the perfect complement to our products and services,” EPG President EPG Peter Griffin said in a statement.
“We can now easily upgrade a press, no matter what ink-control desk or color-measurement equipment is being used.”
Adelphi AutoSet uses CTP output to preset ink fountain keys and reduce setup costs on presses with non-EPG ink control systems. The new Adelphi AutoKey scanner interface system works with other manufacturers’ ink control systems on sheetfed or web presses to adjust ink keys from any other color-measurement equipment to achieve required target densities.
EPG KeyColor systems are integrated into original equipment by press manufacturers and installed worldwide as retrofits on commercial, package, and newspaper presses.
