InkScript Connect is solution developed by Compose System, tightly connected with Digital Information of Switzerland on their InkZone range of solutions. Digital Information is the leader in Press connection technology; developing different solutions to connect with presses, as well close loop solution which can automatically adjust the ink flow during printing process, allowing press down time kept to a minimal.
InkScript Connect also provides a software solution which customer using InkScript can integrate with a Ink key presetting tool to create a much accurate Ink key value before sending to the press. During the printing process, InkZone collects all the preset value from the printed jobs, creates a database for future reference. By reading back the values measured throughout the print run, the calibration curve for a given set of printing conditions can be continuously corrected and will gradually approach an optimum.
When it comes to repeat orders, that means a further boost to the speed of set-up sequences, makes significant savings on paper, and a permanently stable, high-quality printing process.
Regulate the Closed Loop Value, by comparing actual measured values from the printed control strip, InkScript Loop computes correction values for the printing machine. Transmission of the data to the console can be via IS Card, IS Strip, IS Tape, or IS Perfect. If necessary, the operator checks the preset values and, at the press of a key, releases them to the printing machine. The effect is clear: a huge reduction in workload, higher quality, and a stable production run.
InkScript Connect interface:
Direct Connection for Heidelberg and MAN Roland, IS Connect’s interface takes on the function of Heidelberg's Job Memory Card or MAN Roland's Chipcard. The interface is connecting the machine control station via Ethernet to the Press. Ink key values are brought into line with the preset conditions by the control software supplied.
Replace magnetic strip by safety online transmission
InkScript Connect’s interface provides a secure transmission of preset data to the machine control station. It replaces the magnetic strip/tape units normally used on Akiyama, Komori, Mitsubishi, and Planeta machines, and prevents the associated risk of errors from tedious handling of sensitive magnetic strips.
Tightly Integrated with Express WorkFlow
Express InkScript is available as a standalone version for Connect. CIP3 data file is generated on each job according to the press unit being connected. It can also tightly integrate into Compose Express WorkFlow - a powerful but easy-to-use workflow management tool for prepress industry.
Visual Proof for Soft-proofing Results & Plates (Optional)
Visual Proof is a specialized, easy to use, and high performance pre-press soft proofing tool for doing all the things that you used to do in proofing. With Visual Proof, you can check content, page size, blank plates, screens, moiré, overprints, size and placement of step-n-repeats, front-to-back registration, seams, traps, black traps, overprints, over inking, under-inking (small dots in flexo), densities, front-to-back duplex alignment, and you can also do double burns, delete blank plates, merge plate data, rotate plate data, produce a proof, backup plate data, etc...
Easier for Job Retrieval
InkScript Connect minimizes the set-up times from the adjustment of the calculated preset data to the actual ink zone values set on the printing machine. Individual jobs can be copied from the control station back to the computer for repeat orders. Support printing machines from nearly all manufactures InkScript Connect works with a wide range of printing machines consoles from nearly all manufactures, including Heidelberg, MAN Roland, Akiyama, Komori, Mitsubishi, Planeta (Fuji and WPC), KBA, Komori, Ryobi, Eltromat, and GMI.
Ready for the Print Run in Record Time
The combination of control, measurement technology and workflow interface is unique. With InkScript Connect Loop, the printing house saves time and cuts down on wastage. Reference values are attained faster, and it’s easier to keep them within narrow difference. InkScript connect Loop enables set-ups in record time. It’s the perfect way to protect investments in existing installations. IS Connect Loop – the latest update for your offset presses!
