Flint Group’s Paper & Board business has entered into a partnership with X-Rite that leverages its eXact and NetProfiler technologies to meet the colour management needs of each stakeholder in the package print value and supply chain.
Ray Cheydleur, printing and imaging product portfolio manager at X-Rite, added: “This partnership will benefit Flint Group’s customer base of printers around the world. Utilizing X-Rite’s NetProfiler software for verifying device performance, along with the award-winning eXact handheld spectrophotometer, will provide ultimate agreement of measured colours amongst Flint Group and its printing and converter clientele.”
Stuart Duffy, director of professional services at Flint Group Paper & Board, said: “Following rigorous beta testing at a number of corrugated sites, our initial expectations have been surpassed. The sites conducted hundreds of searches from Vivo ColourCloud with every download achieving 100 percent ‘right first time’. This level of performance can only be delivered through a consistent and managed digital workflow along with the support of X-Rite’s eXact spectrophotometer. This results in an effective end-to-end colour management process that fits all requirements.”
