What is InkZone?

What is InkZone


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

Small gap, big opportunity

In many printing houses, the digital process chain stops with plate imaging. The option to transfer prepress output data to press for presetting ink zones remains unused. And because proprietary available CIP3/4 connections come with relatively high investment costs, there is often little incentive to close this gap in the flow of data. Which is why Digital Information has developed InkZone: InkZone is an intelligent, flexible concept that can be adapted to requirements. With little expenditure and the simplest equipment, full use can be made of existing potential for the sake of increased efficiency.

An alternative to plate scanners

In many printing houses, preset values for ink zones are still generated using plate scanners. Apart from the laborious handling of the printing plates, the scanning of plates will also result in a relatively imprecise ink profile due to weak contrast between the aluminium and ink-bearing layer, while subsequent precise adjustment of the zones costs time and paper. Through the online transfer of bitmap files, on the one hand a work-intensive detour via the plate scanner is eliminated, while on the other, InkZone will always refer back to first-generation data. That means: shorter set-up times and minimum start-up waste. In view of shrinking print runs and frequent job changes, this means a significant increase in productivity.


Digital presetting of the ink keys

InkZone extends DI-Plot, the Rip-independent formproof 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


JDF technology

InkZone supports the transfer of preset data - also JDF based - between prepress and press. Bitmap or CIP3 files accepted from RIP and converted by DI-Plot into the Job Definition Format are then converted by InkZone into specific press signals for presetting the ink zones. The conversion function is fulfilled by inkZone also in the case of direct transfer of CIP4/JDF files from any JDF prepress workflow.

More productivity, greater efficiency

Data calculated for film and plate imaging provide the printer with reliable information for digitally presetting the ink zones. Numerous advantages are the result, which go to boost the productivity and quality of the printing process: much quicker attainment of the correct ink feed, shorter start-up times, drastic savings in waste and 100% reproducibility with repeat orders, because the same digital data are referenced all the time.

Quality assurance thanks to Closed Loop

The calculated preset data can be written to the Closed Loop software package by InkZone. After start-up, the press also prints measuring fields for each print zone, which are measured and compared with the saved reference values for CYMK plus spot colours. InkZone transmits the necessary correction values to the press control console online. The printer decides on the use of these corrections and retains the option to intervene manually at any time. The console then writes the relevant settings back into the InkZone software package.

The Closed Loop functionality of InkZone is the simplest possible way to achieve continuous monitoring and control of all zones in the offset press. When it comes to maintaining and logging a stable printing process as required by all international standards, Closed Loop is indispensable!

InkZone Move Software

InkZone Move Software

It Starts with Fast Color Measurement

The on-screen display of the InkZone Press solution makes it easy and quick for the press operator to interpret the measurement results.
InkZone Move Press has at it's foundation an unique software solution which makes clever use of automation to gather color measurements quickly from a color bar positioned at each press sheet. To ensure accurate alignment, the measuring device rides upon a precision guide which is included with the IZM Press package. This allows smooth and steady movement of the Eye-One and results in dependable, repeatable data – every time. When compared to slower manual color measurements, IZM Press completes a comprehensive evaluation of the entire press sheet in just a few seconds.

Press operators have the benefit of applying any necessary corrections faster, and can focus their attention on decision-making and press adjustments instead of on data collection. With such a simple color evaluation process, operators can always have access to an up-to-date look at any deviations from target values or customer-approved samples. And since the entire system operates uses a full-fledged spectrophotometer, it is equally well-suited for controlling both process color and spot-color work.

True and Consistent Color Results

Press operators will appreciate how easy and quick it is to interpret the graphic display of the IZM Press solution. The software depicts the ink-key zones for each unit of the press, and provides the option to view either absolute color and density results, or measurements relative to target values. With the functions of density, dot area/dot gain (tone value/TVI) and colorimetry (CIELAB/Delta-E), InkZone Move Press is the basis for process stability, color consistency and adherence to recognized standards or specifications. And since IZM Press keeps a running history of your color results, you can easily use it to provide proof of quality records, or import the data from its native ASCII/XML format into analysis or statistical software for further evaluation.

InkZone Move Press supports all makes and models of printing presses, allowing operators to review measurements and make manual adjustments to the ink key settings. However, for prompt and consistent ink adjustments, IZM Press can be upgraded to a full, closed-loop control system (InkZone Loop), providing automatic, simultaneous regulation of ink key openings across all press units.

Complete, Uniform, Color Results

InkZone Move Press: the measurement parameters for all ink zones are displayed on-screen within seconds.
InkZone Move offers a comprehensive set of tools for color consistency and uniformity across the entire imaging process. With objective, measurement-based evaluation of the press-sheet color bar, InkZone Move provides a comprehensive approach to controlling all of the factors relating to quality sheetfed offset printing.

And as the industry's first, integrated aftermarket solution, InkZone Move has the capability to unite otherwise incongruent solutions from multiple system providers at each stage of the process.

In this way, the full process can be controlled using a single, comprehensive approach. When paired with the automation and affordability of InkZone Move, it's hard to envision a packaging or commercial printing environment where it wouldn't be relevant.

InkZone Loop

InkZone Loop

Online printing

The launch of InkZone Loop puts a manufacturer-independent online solution for digital control of offset presses onto the market for the first time ever. Supported by measurement technology, InkZone Loop enables the automatic measurement and evaluation of control strips, as well as the continuous transmission of computed correction values directly to the printing press. InkZone Loop is based on tried-and-tested IZ Card, IZ Tape, IZ Strip and IZ Perfect preset solutions.

Measure...

Input: Direct connection to prepress
InkZone Loop supports measuring systems from a wide range of manufacturers. Density values on the sheet containing the printing control strip are measured in a matter of seconds, and can be visualized in IZ Loop.

Using saved data, the printer immediately recognizes the ink zone where the color is wrong. In addition to density, InkZone Loop evaluates other factors like dot gain, slur, etc.

Naturally, as well as functioning with CMYK, InkZone Loop supports any spot color. All these functions combine several production steps that so far have mostly been carried out manually. InkZone Loop thus comes with a huge increase in efficiency. Streamlined sequences are extremely important, especially at a time when print runs are shrinking.

InkZone Loop generates a record of the measured color data and thus assists with repeat runs. Naturally, the record also aids compliance with international quality standards.

...and regulate

Output: Transmitting correction values to the press
By comparing actual measured values with reference data, IZ Loop computes correction values for the press. Transmission of the data to the console can be via IZ Card, IZ Strip, IZ Tape, or IZ Perfect. If necessary, the operator checks the preset values and, at the press of a key, releases them to the press. The effect is clear: a huge reduction in workload, higher quality, and a stable production run.

Preset & proof

The preset products IZ Card, IZ Strip, IZ Tape and IZ Perfect are extremely important if IZ Loop is to be used successfully. The better the preset, the more efficient the closed loop! While InkZone solutions secure the connection to the press, the DI-Plot software package looks after the transfer of prepress data. DI-Plot reads both CIP3/4 and proprietary bitmap formats from almost all prepress workflows and passes the computed ink zone values on to InkZone for digital presetting of the press.

At the same time, DI-Plot can produce accurate form proofs from the ripped bitmap data of almost all workflow systems.

Ready for the print run in record time

The combination of control, measurement technology and workflow interface is unique. With InkZone Loop, the printing house saves time and cuts down on waste. Reference values are attained faster, and it's easier to keep them within narrow limits. InkZone Loop enables set-ups in record time, even with offset machines from the previous millennium. It's the perfect way to protect investments in existing installations. InkZone Loop - the latest update for your offset press!

InkZone Connect

InkZone Card

InkZone Card: direct connection

InkZone Card for online connection of MAN roland and Heidelberg printing machines
As an online system, InkZone Card augments InkZone Box, the globally successful offline solution. InkZone Card is used with machines from Heidelberg and MAN Roland. As an online system, it is the obvious choice when production is on one printing machine only, or when the online principle is preferred for technological reasons.
InkZone Card takes on the function of e.g. Heidelberg's Job Memory Card or MAN Roland's Chipcard and connects the machine control station via Ethernet to prepress. Ink zone values are brought into line with individual printing conditions by the software package supplied, converted to the specific machine format, and saved online to the machine control system via InkZone Card. InkZone Card also accepts CIP4/JDF files from the prepress workflow and converts them into the specific machine format for presetting the ink zones. InkZone Card supports JDF-based ink zone presetting in all heterogeneous machine environments.

InkZone Strip: preset in Japanese

Control unit for InkZone Strip and InkZone Tape
With InkZone Strip, the winning strengths of InkZone technology can now be put to full use on offset machines from manufacturers Akiyama, Komori and Mitsubishi. InkZone Strip replaces the magnetic strip readers normally used on these machines. Tedious handling of sensitive magnetic strips and the associated risk of errors are now a thing of the past. Thanks to InkZone Strip, the preset data can be transmitted - online and secure – from prepress to the machine control station.

InkZone Tape: Planeta machines live longer with

Drag & Drop:
simple operation for every user
Planeta machines are used untiringly in many operations. But although their mechanical components guarantee excellent printing quality, the Fuji and WPC consoles used on these machines are not state-of-the-art. InkZone Tape achieves the same high-quality printing results, but faster and cheaper. The magnetic strip reader is simply replaced by InkZone Tape. After the transfer of preset data online, the ink slides travel into position automatically and precisely. 

All InkZone connect products also accepting CIP4/JDF files from the prepress workflow and convert them into the specific machine format for controlling the ink keys. InkZone Connect supports JDF-based ink zone presetting in all heterogeneous machine environments. 

Adjustment of the calculated preset data to the actual ink key values set on the printing machine enables continuous process optimisation, while the associated set-up times approach the absolute minimum. Naturally, individual jobs can be copied from the control station back to the computer and will be readily available for repeat orders.

InkZone Fountain

InkZone Fountain

The Clear Solution

The fountain solution is cleansed through a set of four filters and pumped back to the offset press' tank in spotless condition.
InkZone Fountain, Digital Information's all new fountain solution purification system, utilizes powerful, advanced nanofiber technology featuring ceramic nanofibers on a micro-glass matrix, originally engineered for medical applications, to filter out particulates down to 2 nanometers.
With zero discharge and zero waste of incoming water, InkZone Fountain promises highly improved production conditions and a virtually unlimited fountain solution life cycle. InkZone Fountain is an affordable, environmentally friendly solution with a fast return on investment.

Fountain solutions contaminated by ink and paper residue are the enemy of every printing pressman. Calcium, paper dust, fillers, coatings, and other residue from paper that continues to decrease in quality are particularly harmful to the process.

Until recently, process stability could only be maintained by replacing fountain solution and cleaning out the «gunk» build-up in the fountain tank on a weekly basis. Not anymore. This inefficient and time-consuming process is a thing of the past with Digital Information’s all new fountain solution purification system, InkZone Fountain. Against the backdrop of increasing customer demands, elevated pressures on cost, and an industry focused on environmental stewardship, print facilities can no longer afford the expense of press downtime or unnecessary waste in terms of economic or environmental resources. With InkZone Fountain, «going green» has never been easier or more affordable.

Real, long-term stability

Nanotechnology from medical applications: spin-on filters for IZ Fountain.
Digital Informationss InkZone Fountain is a simple, cost-effective, and highly efficient solution. InkZone Fountain's unique four-step filter system uses nanostructured fibers to protect fountain solution from the pollution of microbiological growth by separating out micro-particles coming from inks and papers.

Measurable parameters relevant to the printing process such as pH, water hardness, or electrolytic conductivity remain stable over a long period of time – in guaranteeing press productivity and production quality of the highest possible level. The offset printing environment becomes more stable and thus more economical as it is possible to considerably reduce the amount of fountain solution on the printing plates. The result – less plate wear and less plate scumming and tinting.

Cleaner fountain solution immediately achieved

The results of InkZone Fountain are astounding and immediate. Upon installation of InkZone Fountain in the pressroom, measurable results can be achieved on polluted fountain solution in just three hours. And, maintaining fountain solution cleanliness is easy. InkZone Fountain’s simple Smart-Gauge indicators clearly alert press operators when filters are due for replacement.

Suited for old and new machines

InkZone Fountain is easily installed on all machines and instantly ready for operation. InkZone Fountain can be added to any sheetfed or web offset press from all established manufacturers regardless of the press size. InkZone Fountain filters are quickly and easily replaced to ensure long-term results. And, when compared against the standard systems delivered as part of the manufacturers’ original installation, InkZone Fountain is far superior in terms of cleaning efficiency, ease of maintenance, and cost effectiveness rendering the original filters obsolete when re placed with Digital Information’s high-performance InkZone Fountain.

Configuration

InkZone Move Configuration

DI-Plot

Software package for conversion and printout of bitmap files. Automatic reading and writing of CIP3 and InkZone files for presetting offset printing machines.

DI-Plot can read CIP3/4 files or proprietary bitmap files from which it calculates the percent dot area according to the printing machine used. In many cases, the reading of bitmap files (1 Bit Tiff, Delta lists, page buffer, etc.) can save the investment in expensive CIP3 extensions for the respective Rip/Workflow.

PC Hardware and Operating System

We recommend installing the DI-Plot software on a dedicated PC running Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Windows 7 Professional. The perfect hardware is an CPU Intel Core 2 Duo, 3.x GHz, 2 GB RAM, 80 GB hard disk, 10,000 RPM, 19-inch TFT monitor (touch screen recommended), USB. There are two important special hardware requirements: the PC should contain two Ethernet boards. One Ethernet line is connected to the customer's network (hub or switch), the other one is using a crossover cable and drives the InkZone Box/Card. This kind of installation ensures a clear separation between the box and the customer's network. And the PC should contain a free serial connetion (RS232) to drive the InkZone Tape and Strip solution.
