CGS ORIS Expands its Product Portfolio with X GAMUT

Expanded Gamut Printing and brilliant images – with software instead of expensive ink

Minneapolis, MN (September 18, 2018) – The latest product from leading color management developer CGS ORIS is X GAMUT, a fully automated software product for expanded gamut printing on conventional and digital presses.

Releasing during Labelexpo 2018 (booth 5628) and PRINT 18 (booth 2203), attendees can look forward to hands-on demonstrations of the latest X GAMUT by CGS ORIS color experts.  

X GAMUT extends the full color space and multi-color ink set of the press. A specific spot color can be reproduced without the need for a special ink formulation, a feature of definite interest to brand owners and the packaging and label industries. In addition, X GAMUT increases the color saturation of images, especially important in the production of brilliant pictures for photobooks and complex packaging designs, for example.

All this is possible through a perfect match of software features and intelligent workflow tools. X GAMUT extracts the DNA of the spot and CMYK/RGB colors in the print job and translates them into the expanded fixed color palette (CMYK+n) of the press. Usually this expanded gamut is achieved at press by adding orange, green and violet to the standard process inks (CMYK+OGV). The process makes use of the included special color reference tables, i.e. the Pantone color library or a table created automatically from imported CxF data.

The software leads the user through the whole process, from reading in the test chart to output of the final, optimized, print job – all done automatically.

X GAMUT has many advantages, not just to the printer but also the brand owner and end customer. Press set-up and make ready times are significantly reduced, regular ink changes and the subsequent clean-up time are, for all intents, eliminated – especially important with short run jobs. Press up-time is greatly increased as the fixed ink set means that different print jobs can be combined into a single press run. Expensive special inks are no longer required, are not wasted and inventory costs are reduced. Paper waste is also reduced. All leading to a much more environmentally friendly process.

An incredible amount of time and costs are saved in many areas of the print production workflow. X GAMUT frees up resources for the printer, enabling an increased production capacity. With an increase in production capacity printers can focus more energy on winning new customers.

Industry professionals will be invited to experience hands-on demonstrations of the latest X GAMUT and FLEX PACK during both Labelexpo 2018 and PRINT 18.
