Primera partners with ColorGATE to offer Productionserver


Productionserver is a modular and scalable RIP, workflow and color management software solution.

Primera Technology, a manufacturer of specialty printers, has announced that the color matching software solution Productionserver by ColorGATE Digital Output Solutions GmbH now supports Primera’s CX1200e Digital Printing and FX1200e Finishing System.

Productionserver is a modular and scalable RIP, workflow and color management software. Its latest version, Productionserver 10, features increased RIP speed through parallel tasks processing, excellent color management and fast profiling, optimal color replication and consistent reproduction. By offering spot color representation for digital printing, the solution ensures cost-efficient and color consistent digital label printing.

Another highlight is the Ink Saver technology, which can reduce toner costs by up to 30% without any visual losses in quality. Ink Saver technology uses special device link profiles to optimize color composition. This technology reduces the CMY portions in the motif and replaces them with a greater proportion of black, which significantly reduces the overall quantity of toner used and ultimately also reduces the toner costs of the CX1200e.

“The CX/FX1200e system for digital printing and finishing is used by a vast variety of customers worldwide, and we always strive to provide them with the best possible solution for their needs. That’s why we are excited to offer our existing and new CX/FX customers this professional, budget-minded software,” says Andreas Hoffmann, managing director of Primera Technology Europe. “It contains all needed features for the use with CX1200e and FX1200e and offers significant cost savings with each print.”

The software package includes additional features for job, color, workflow and output management, such as:
  • Collective Job (Nesting) – allows users to combine several print jobs into one collective container and to arrange them either optimized for cutting or material savings.
  • Color Replacement – enables automatic or manual (spot) color replacement with direct measurement device integration. Any input color or color range (RGB, CMYK, spot) can be replaced with CMYK and L*a*b* colours.
  • Gamut Viewer – offers impressive 2D and 3D comparisons of different color spaces, visualizing which print colors are possible with CX1200e.
  • Print and Cut Module – synchronizes the CX1200e printing and FX1200e cutting functionality by automatically adding black marks to the printed output and generating the cut file.
Thomas Kirschner, founder and CEO of ColorGATE, comments: “We are glad to team up with Primera and provide extended color and ripping performance to their unique digital label print and finishing system."
