The Next Generation of Remote Ink Control, Giving Digital Accuracy from a Intuitive Touch Screen

The new Microcolor/Mercury control station is a direct response to the escalating demands that printers now face. In today’s competitive environment, no press can operate profitably without the benefit of fast, accurate ink control. To enhance the automated servomotors of the Microcolor system even further, GMI has developed a highly intuitive, touch screen control station. This new workstation can be readily configured anywhere on the press line where inking adjustments need to be managed. In addition, an optional, LCD-based operator console provides even more feedback on press status, along with easy-to-use diagnostic views. Thousands of printers around the world already rely on this combination of easy operation and reliable digital performance to deliver savings of 30% to 50% on make ready, and reductions of 10% or more in running waste.
