NewsWay InkControl for ink saving - Automatic generation of ink setup information

Savings in cost and ROI are the foundation of ProImage’s NewsWay ink control. With the increased use of digital production, ink-zone setting has become an essential element of today’s print production.


The NewsWay ink control will identify separations that arrive into the system, calculate ink coverage based on preset zones in a highly accurate manner, apply any curves that are required, and pass the data to the press control system. The application supports the industry standard CIP3 format as well as several other different proprietary interfaces.


ProImage’s NewsWay ink control can operate as a stand-alone or can be an integral part of the NewsWay suite of workflow management applications. Running on the web-based platform, it provides users with all the productivity advantages of the NewsWay of controlling workflow.


Designed from the ground up to be web compatible, the NewsWay servers work as Internet servers allowing users to log in from anywhere within the network over a simple web browser interface.


The NewsWay ink control is very flexible and simple to set up using its easy-to-use, very accessible setup screens. This allows for easy press upgrades and support for multiple presses from a single NewsWay system. Newsprint and ink amount up to 50% of start-up waste.


With NewsWay ink control, savings on can be significant; and you can also save time through shorter time to good copy. All pages are available for browser-based viewing at the press console. Moreover, where a press does not have an automatic ink-zone setting capability, the NewsWay ink control will produce printouts or on-screen tabular ink values to aid in manual ink setting.
