Packaging printing specialists Koenig & Bauer and Esko have agreed to strengthen their partnership to provide live presentations of colour management and workflow solutions.

Under the extended partnership, all colour management and workflow solutions from Esko installed at the Koenig & Bauer demo centre in Radebeul, Germany, will be available for live presentations to interested customers.

Koenig & Bauer will demonstrate the Equinox colour management technology that allows printing with an extended colour gamut and the necessary RIP architecture from Esko’s Imaging Engine.

“All packaging printers who will participate in the Koenig & Bauer customer centre will become familiar with the latest print and finishing technologies.”

The wide range of colours eliminates the need for constant printer wash-ups, which accompany the use of spot colours.

The extended colour gamut can be used by packaging printers as an alternative to company or product-specific spot colours.

Accordingly, both companies intend to offer practically integrated pre-press and print solutions that fulfil highest quality standards, which ensure overall stability of all the associated parameters in the print, while offering a wider gamut.

Koenig & Bauer offers advanced measuring and control systems to ensure a stable process, even on longer runs and repeat jobs.

The company noted that all packaging printers who will participate in the Koenig & Bauer customer centre will become familiar with the latest print and finishing technologies.
