CIP3 Ink Key Presetting interface for Heidelberg XL, SX & CX with Press Center Consoles

PressProfiler is fully compatible with Heidelberg printing presses running the Press Center software such as the XL75 and XL105 printing presses, in fact the whole XL, SX and CX range of offset printing presses, as well as the older CP2000 and CPC 1.04 consoles.

Utilising our unique PressProfiler Bridge server then CIP3 or Ink Key Presetting jobs can be sent to the printing press with absolutely no modification of the press’ hardware or software. All you need is the Press Center Instant Gate license and you’re ready to go.

Unlike many competitive solutions with PressProfiler you continue to use all of the ink-key calibration, colour measuring, adjustment and job editing features that come with your printing press directly on the touch-screen of your printing press. No need for your printers to use a separate computer to setup make-ready jobs and send them to the press, the jobs simply arrive on the touch-screen of the printing press in just the same way as Heidelberg’s own solution.

That means your printers can select the paper type directly on the press and the ink key settings will be adjusted for best preset on that paper type utilising the built-in Characterisation Curves; Presses with a license for ColorAssist will be able to have their calibration curves automatically adjusted at the press of a button to improve accuracy over time and as the press’ behaviour drifts with wear; Inpress, AxisControl and ImageControl colour scanners with automatic follow-up continue to work just the same as they would with an original CIP3 interface.

Press Center, Speedmaster, Instant Gate, ColorAssist, Inpress, AxisControl and ImageControl are trademarks of Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG and are used here to identify the products which PressProfiler is compatible with.

What our customers say ...


PressProfiler has given us consistent results from the first time we tried it. We can save as much as 70% on make-readies using PressProfiler. With run lengths continuing to fall, such savings on make-readies are essential. This enhancement will pay for itself in no time at all. PressProfiler is a great value product.

Salman Malik

Owner, Print Plus,UK

Dramatic savings on make-ready were accompanied by a much more straightforward approach to good colour on the press. We are now swiftly into good colour on every job, allowing us to make savings on materials as well as time

Peter Horne

Print Manager, JEM Packaging,UK

The decision to add PressProfiler was an essential move in our opinion: speed, reduced waste, and greater colour consistency are all critical issues for any printers. This package does it all for us, and at a fraction of the cost of similar kit from the press manufacturer

Martin Ince

Production Manager at Woodrow Press,UK

PressProfiler is a product that represents great value. To do the same with the press manufacturers own branded package would cost five times as much. The team at Prepress UK do a fantastic job at a great price!
