Uteco and QuadTech announced an agreement to join forces demonstrate the benefits on colour management technology.  QuadTech’s ColorTrack, a new color management software for flexo and gravure packaging applications, is an  adaptive “colour expert in a box” solution for packaging printers. With a variety of options for hand-held and inline configurations, the software facilitates fast, press-side correction of ink formulations. Without any hardware modifications to the press, ColorTrack automates the process of delivering consistency from press-to-press, shift-to-shift, and plant-to-plant. With the optional InkWeigh, press operators can view and weigh ink recipes received from the formulation software to easily make press-side corrections. Color Measurement with DeltaCam, launched at last year’s drupa, makes inline spectral measurement affordable to individual Packaging print houses. “We could not be more pleased to join forces with one of the most technologically innovative companies in the flexographic and rotogravure printing industries,” says QuadTech President Karl Fritchen. Aldo Peretti, Uteco CEO said: “Uteco Group demonstrates that we are state-of-the-art by investing and operating on the major guidelines that make the industry a ‘4.0’ business, and by making large investments with particular attention to research, development, knowledge and innovation. In a complex and niche market, Uteco has become a market-reference thanks to its investments in new technologies and in automation. We also invest in continuous organizational improvements, in line with the World Class Manufacturing.”
