AVT/GMI Present Next Generation Color Control Solutions
• Change key settings overall
• Copy and adjust profiles for pages or alleys
• Adapt to special ink sequences
• Store multiple versions for quick reaction to customer changes
• Save virtually unlimited numbers of jobs on the local system disk, or to network disk storage where needed
To complement the complete suite controls found on the touchscreen monitor, the Next Generation Microcolor/Mercury offers a completely redesigned, optional operator console (OCU). At this control station, the printer can adjust individual keys that are arranged to match the ink key zones on the press, one-to-one. Current settings are shown in easy-to-read, high-contrast LCD displays, one for each key zone. A full-color LCD panel provides feedback on system status and diagnostic views, right at the OCU.
The new Microcolor / Mercury OCU is now the most adaptable remote ink control solution in the industry:
• Consoles can be customized to match any ink key spacing and any number of keys per fountain.
• Microcolor/Mercury can be readily adapted to existing press desks, or installed on new, GMI-supplied desks.
• Multiple consoles for virtually any combination of webs can be configured on a single system.
Like all GMI Next Generation products, the new Microcolor / Mercury uses highly flexible hardware and software that allows a Microcolor touchscreen control to be placed virtually anywhere on a press line that an operator might need to work on setting ink keys. Multiple control stations are practical for any press. On smaller presses, all control can be done from the touchscreen alone, eliminating the need to “squeeze in” a full desk where space at press-side does not permit it. Thus the Microcolor/Mercury can be easily reconfigured as the pressroom layout changes or the staffing patterns change.
Adding Next Generation Microcolor is “plug & play” for existing Microcolor users. Because Microcolor / Mercury can work with existing GMI ink keys, fountains, and existing GMI digital servomotors, an economical upgrade path is available for today’s Microcolor users. No rebuilds of ink fountains, or fountain hardware modifications are needed to put a modern graphical workstation at every press crew’s disposal.
