Driving this best in class ink jet technology are the included RIP and color management tools from Wasatch and X-Rite. The Wasatch SoftRIP provides intuitive workflow controls and the X-Rite photospec- trometer bundle allows for the creation of custom ICC profiles per selected substrates, ensuring consistent and repeatable printing results.

The newly developed PrecisionCore linehead, center drum system, and digital varnish deliver high quality images. The space saving, compact design integrates all of the functions required for label production, such as corona treater, white ink, digital varnish and an addi- tional UV curing unit. The newly adopted pinning technology con- trols the range of ink scattering and realizes ultra sharp dots and incredibly thin lines. The Epson digital quality color gamut, tonal grada- tion, flat print and lack of graininess help those in the prime label industry overcome their hes- itation about using UV ink. Now UV printing can be used in more discriminating areas such as health and beauty, nutraceuticals and food and beverage, as well as standard consumer packaged goods such as car polish, lawn and garden care, and household cleaner labels. In white ink printing, surface white print and reverse white print are available to extend the range of expression on clear and metalized films. With the brand new digital varnish ink, a gloss or matte finish can be selected for the overall label and appealing partial accents can even be added using glossy or matte spot varnish.
