Esko’s Print Control Wizard software has been named the winner in the Digital Print and Technologies category of the Packaging Innovation Awards 2020, organized in France by Groupe Industrie Services Info.
Print Control Wizard was developed in response to industry demands to simplify the implementation of screens and dot gain curves in the flexo reprographics process. To secure the award, Esko demonstrated how its technology met initial objectives, creating greater ease and consistency for customers.
‘We originally designed Print Control Wizard to have a positive impact on a broad range of reprographics processes. It offers the sector a simplified, standardized approach to screen and curve creation. It outputs a new screening algorithm taking into account a wide range of flexo plate and print variables. Since the solution’s initial launch in 2019, we’ve unveiled generation 20.0 to drive continuous improvement for Esko customers across the print and packaging sectors,’ commented Robert Bruce, RIP and screening product manager at Esko.
Print Control Wizard 20.0 incorporates a wide range of features, such as an improved test chart layout, enhanced interface and reporting, and Platemaking Wizard – a central storage location for Esko CDI setup. The software is available as part of the company’s integrated portfolio, Esko Software 20.
‘We’re delighted that our innovative solution has been recognized by such a highly regarded French awards program, underpinning the effort that goes into delivering operational improvements at outstanding value for our customers. I’d like to extend my thanks to all involved,’ added Bruce.
