“SME Company of the Year”

ISO 12647-2 with Heidelberg

Prinect Image Control Gen 2 comes to DXG Media. This is the very latest version of image control which has been around for a while now and used by many of the UKs better print Companies, however our version is the latest Gen 2 version (one of only 3 in the UK). This clever bit of kit is linked to our press department and both litho machines to examine the quality of colour reproduction and to regulate colours in accordance with the ISO 13655 standard. In order to achieve the closest tolerances, colormetric calibrations are regularly performed on this equipment with Heidelberg keeping a tolerance of less than 1.3%. The average deviation, compared to manufacturers reference values. Our system can therefore be used for colour measurement in accordance with the ISO 12647-2 Standard.

Heidelberg B1 Printing Press

Here’s a few pics of our new Heidelberg B1 Printing Press as it arrives at DXG Towers and freshly installed inside the building.

Image Control

Our new Prinect image control system is now in place. This is a colour management device which controls the print quality off all our printing presses.

The great thing about this machine is that it monitors the whole printed sheet rather than just the control strip at the top of the sheet so giving a much more accurate reading.

With this spectrophotometric machine conforms to ISO 13655 and ISO 12647-2 standard.

We are also able to give the client a printed receipt which confirms any slight movement in colour consistency.
