Epson SurePress Receives 91 Percent Pantone Coverage Certification
Epson announces its Epson SurePress® L-4533A/AW digital label press has been evaluated and approved by Pantone®, the provider of professional color management services and tools, for its capability to achieve 91 percent1 of the PANTONE Solid Coated Colors within delta E of 1.5 CIEDE2000. The Epson SurePress L-4533A/AW is certified to reach its full Pantone coverage capabilities when used in conjunction with the Avery Primax 250TC/S692N/BG40W/BW6033B PS label media and Epson ink.
The 91 percent coverage certification is so wide that Epson regularly uses the XCMYK input profile versus GRACoL®, the industry’s current standard, and SWOP profiles made for earlier generations of pre-digital six color equipment. The L-4533 uses a 4-color work flow with the RIP and the press determines the orange and green automatically, saving time, simplifying the operation and improving the day to day accuracy of the jobs. In a rapidly changing printing and packaging landscape, this certification helps underscore Epson’s commitment to helping converters and their customers create engaging color labels.
The expanded color selection allows owners of the Epson SurePress L-4533A/AW to address more applications, such as flexible packaging with photographic images.
ID Products, a company that specializes in labels, screen printed overlays and more, has been using the SurePress L-4533A/AW to create nutrition labels, craft beer labels, pharma labels, and more. Adding this press into its production workflow has expanded ID Products’ customer base as well as its reach into new and exciting market verticals. With its wide color gamut and precision, the SurePress L-4533A/AW has reinforced ID Products’ foundation on delivering perfect and consistent quality, enabling the business to meet their customers’ high expectations for color accuracy and dependability.
