WHAT YOU WILL LEARN…

Fixed palette, or expanded gamut, can help you deliver on your customer’s expectations while running a lean and profitable operation. The secret is uncompromising consistency and predictability. And no one know how to deliver both better than Apex International!


1 Optimized Fixed Palette

Recent studies and trials aimed at optimizing Pantone simulation suggest that the fixed palette approach is ready to revolutionize the flexography and label industries. The change is due specifically to advancements allowing for unprecedented process control and consistency as well as the development of new tools designed to pinpoint which process parameters are failing so they may be addressed before problems arise.

2 Importance of Calibration

The systematic elimination of variable components in the printing process is the only true way to gain the control necessary to effectively optimize fixed palette. Variable elimination requires a full understanding of the manner in which the various print process components interact with one another and a means by which to test the variable when issues arise.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Greater consistency was the main criteria and we achieved it using GTT anilox technology. Our 4 color process jobs now move along ease. We have an entire team of experienced printers that are delighted with GTT anilox because it has made their jobs much easier. For us, the benefits have been greater efficiency and far better print quality. The payback period on our investment is short because we have less machine downtime and we spend far less time tweaking ink strength during set up. In short, we are a much more profitable operation because of Apex.”

“Our mission is to push flexography beyond its current limitations and at the same time we challenge digital as it takes market share in short-run package printing technology. One of the most critical parameters in Flexo’s consistency, is the ink-to-plate transfer by means of the anilox roll. We have experienced that the next generation GTT engraving transfers by far the most accurate, controlled and consistent amount of ink, through out each print and job after job.”
