Esko, a global developer of integrated hardware and software solutions for the packaging and label markets, has announced a new collaboration with Global Inkjet Systems (‘GIS’) to combine its workflow and brand color management expertise with the inkjet expertise of GIS.

Esko has extensive experience in digital print development having supplied a digital front end (DFE) turnkey solution, including brand color management and RIPing, for more than ten years to several leading press manufacturers. GIS is a market leader in the supply of datapath electronics, ink delivery systems and print control software, alongside capability in scanning and direct to shape inkjet print systems.

By combining the DFE and workflow automation expertise of Esko with the inkjet electronics and Atlas® software capabilities of GIS, the two companies can together offer a complete solution from print job creation to the optimization of print quality through precise printhead control.

Chuck Ravetto, VP/GM Suppliers Business of Esko, comments: “We know that digital press manufacturers are seeking to reduce development times of their presses. By using this integrated solution resulting from our partnership with GIS, they will get innovations to market faster. At the same time, packaging converters investing in digital press capacity will benefit by having more standardized and robust on press solutions for workflow, color management and device compensation.”
