Printing Press Ink Key Automation and CIP3

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.

PressProfiler Bridge Server

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.

PressCenter Loading Jobs from PressProfiler

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.
