Amcor Ledbury invest in halftone proofing with white ink & multi substrates.

London (England), October 4th 2011 – Amcor Ledbury have invested in a Star Proof and Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 solution to bring high quality proofing in-house.

The system which was installed in early 2011 produces colour accurate halftone proof samples for both customer and internal print requirements. The integration which was carried out by Graphic Republik, accurately replicates on the proof how the final printed piece will look.

When used in conjunction with Star Proof, the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 is capable of producing the highest quality halftone proofs from the same ripped data that is used to make the final press plate. Utilizing the WT7900’s White ink and ClearProof film combination, Star Proof is calibrated to produce a halftone proof of the press condition from colour and ink sequence through to ink hue, white opacity and dot gain.

Commenting on the investment, John Guthrie, Reprographics Manager said “Star Proofs are now an almost daily requirement for our print work and our customers – when producing samples of technically demanding work, Star Proof continues to over-deliver more than I would have dared to believe”.

Star Proof accepts Raster data in 1 Bit Tiff or Barco “Len” file formats at resolutions up to 4,000 dpi, screen rulings up to 223 lpi and supports the latest HD and NX Flexo screening technologies. The resultant data integral proof sets high standards in halftone inkjet proofing. Used in conjunction with the Epson Stylus Pro range of inkjet printers,

Star Proof gives users the ability to produce samples, prototypes and final proofs which are representative of the actual printed article. To fully compliment Epson ClearProof Film™ and Metallic film™, Star Proof also gives full control over white ink density and hue, allowing adjustments to be made simply and quickly. Reverse print and surface print modes are also fully supported.
