GSE and Cerm integrate ink flow into converter planning

September 30, 2011

The co-developed software interface enables the management of ink requirements within a label printer’s planning and scheduling systems.

Ink logistics provider GSE Dispensing and Cerm, a specialist in automation and print business management, have co-developed a software package that enables the management of ink requirements to be integrated within a label printer’s forward planning and scheduling systems.

The new interface provides information about availability, costing and traceability of ink recipes and base inks. Cerm exports production orders and required ink volumes per order to GSE Dispensing’s Ink Management Software (IMS). IMS formulates the ink recipes, consumption rates and return inks per order, enabling an accurate calculation of ink costs per order. This information is exported to the Cerm software, giving the customer an immediate overview of ink costs per order and recipe availability.

“The software interface provides total control of ink budgets, which until now have been a blind spot for printers. This will help immensely in improving the cost forecasting and waste reduction,” said Peter D’Hondt, manager of global business development and sales at Cerm.
