Ink Saving and Quality Improvement

The INK SAVER module of PRESS MATCHER has been developed to not only create substantial ink savings on press but to also optimize the entire production process.

With an ink reduction of usually 20 percent or even more, not only a significant cost reduction is achieved, but also a substantial increase in print quality.

An overall lower ink coverage optimizes print contrast and enhances visible details. Spot and brand colors are also displayed more precisely.

Printing with less ink automatically leads to faster drying times and significantly increases your production speed. Print capacity that can be used for new customer orders. As a result, you can process more print jobs from your customers at the same time!

Besides that, negative effects from environmental factors are also minimized. Banners and signboards are less susceptible to fading and abrasion.

Printing more jobs means more profit; usually, INK SAVER pays for itself within less than a year.

Ink savings and cost reduction
With INK SAVER, substantial ink savings of at least 20 percent are achieved. Depending on the print process and the colors, users report even higher savings. This is particularly true in large-format printing, where advertising materials like posters or banners are reproduced.

Printing with less ink means cost can be significantly reduced. Typically, the investment usually pays for itself within one year. In addition, ink saving has many other positive effects, such as
reduced print head wear.

Quality improvement
Paradoxically as it may seem, high-speed inkjet printing benefits from substantial quality improvements when ink usage is reduced.

The most noticeable improvements are increased contrast and shadow detail, as well as improved rendering of spot and brand colors – especially those in the red area, typically a challenge for
high-speed inkjet printers.

Faster drying times
Ink usage and total ink coverage is greatly reduced. This allows for significantly faster drying times and therefore higher production speed. Increased productivity means more sales and higher margins.
Environmental resistance
A lower total ink coverage can also prevent negative impacts of environmental factors. Prints become less susceptible to fading and abrasion, for example. This is an important asset for promotional material.
Increased workflow productivity
INK SAVER uses device link profiles for converting job data. This ensures a fast and smooth production process and short processing times, even for very large jobs. IPDS environments are fully supported.
Environmentally friendly
With INK SAVER there are not only economic benefits, but also benefits for the environment. Reducing total ink coverage is by no means a negligible contribution to making your processes more environmentally friendly. This is especially true for processes that use large amounts of UV inks, as these inks have the highest savings potential, resulting in less ink waste.
