Press Operators and Managers Challenged with Online Game

Setting up ink keys manually on offset presses not only consumes operator time, but also generates paper waste. To demonstrate just how much waste is involved, Swiss software developer Digital Information has developed an animated, interactive game which is both fun to play and educational. The challenge is to play press operator and set the correct ink key positions for four process colors of a typical 8-up test form. Each process color requires precise settings for each of the 32 ink keys. Based on the testing with a number of press operators (who shall remain nameless), this is by no means an easy task. A timekeeper keeps a merciless account of precious minutes quickly ticking away while visitors try to adjust the virtual press to yield the right color profile for each unit. Impatient players can get some assistance from the “help” button which displays the target values instantly on the monitor. But even then, users can see just how much precious time will irretrievably be lost while all 128 ink zones are manually adjusted to the proper positions. The experience helps to underscore the potential for cost-savings that can be achieved with an automated ink-zone presetting and closed loop adjustment solution, such as the InkZone product line from Digital Information.

Of course, participating in the game is the real reward, and can help visitors realize the full impact of financial savings they might achieve with InkZone solutions. Please visit inkzonegame.com and be a winner!
