Industrial Productionserver & New Out of Gamut Module (OOGM)

Digital inkjet printing has revolutionized industrial printing! Get to know our application-specific Industrial Productionserver solutions: with intelligent workflow, high automation capability and modular functionality available. Our solutions are convincing for the digital decoration of flexible packaging, cardboard and containers for industrial use and for surface decoration: let it be printing for wood or flooring, textiles or ceramic products. With our know-how, we enable an individual and flexible design of the products both in mass production and in small quantities – directly in the production process in real-time. ColorGATE provides solutions to machine manufacturers and OEMs for the following applications: 

  • Décor (décor paper roll-to-roll or direct-to-board)
  • Textile, ceramic, floor tiles, wallpaper, glass printing
  • Packaging (Direct-to-object decoration (bottles, cans, other containers))

Packaging Productionserver (PPS): the future-proof solution by ColorGATE

PPS is a highly flexible printing solution for a wide field of applications – with a reliable and complete workflow, RIP and Color Management Solution dedicated to digital packaging printing. ColorGATE offers a modular and adaptive software architecture – optionally to be extended or scaled on demand for higher processing speeds.

Fingerprint Module (FPRM) - Patented technology for a “digital color twin”

This unique software module generates a fingerprint production file, which includes a colorimetric specification of the initial print, which represents a digital master that provides a reliable reference so that future reprints can be reproduced exactly and color consistently. The procedure allows to standardize and ensure optimal reproduction results of digitally decorated objects, such as wood - and plastic surfaces, laminates, ceramic floor - and wall tiles as well as decorative textiles.

  • Revolutionary concept for efficient and high-quality reproduction and reprints
  • Available for Ceramic and Décor Productionserver and optional all Industrial Productionserver variants
  • Creates a digital master including all colors of master design with the exact same color properties of a master design
  • Fingerprint production file can be produced on any ICC-profiled production line and evaluated in terms of color quality beforehand

Measure Mount – Apparatus for color measurement of cylindrical container

The Measure Mount is a device for the use of the i1Basic Pro 2 hand-held measuring device from X-Rite for the color measurement of cylindrical shaped and hollow bodies such as cans, bottles, tubes and glasses. The manually adjustable device can be adapted to circular bodies with diameters from 2 cm to 20 cm in just a few steps so that the scanning lineal supplied with the measuring instrument is optimally positioned above the shaped body to be measured.
