Dan Caldwell Joins CxF in Action Panel at FTA Forum 2022
ICScolor is heading back out on the road in two weeks to attend the Flexographic Technical Association’s Forum 2022, March 13-16 in Fort Worth, Texas.
Hosted by Dan Uress and Steve Smiley
Panelists include Dan Caldwell, ICScolor; Rachel Malley, CGS ORIS Americas; Chris Maxedon, PetSmart Proprietary Brands; and Michael Sisco, ColorConsulting USA Inc
With its diverse capabilities, CxF has usage applications for the entire flexographic workflow. As a method of sharing color targets from brand owners to premedia, CxF helps improve the proofing quality of brand colors. As the job progresses through the workflow into the ink kitchen, the complete spectral curve which can be carried inside a CxF file helps assure proper ink formulation and manufacturing. Once on press, the same CxF data can be utilized for process control and verification by quality assurance technicians.
Digital Proofing in CxF
Our own Dan Caldwell will speak on how a digital proof can use CxF values that are embedded in a PDF to create an accurate proof of the CxF color in the file. He will also demonstrate how a digital proofing solution can be used to write the approved CxF values into a file for submission to the printer. Additionally he will describe how a digital proofing system can be used to create a digital draw-down of any CxF value on any substrate.
