MONTREAL—August 19, 2013—Metafix, an award winning liquid controls and analytics company, will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in conjunction with the PRINT 13 Expo, September 8-12 at Booth 110 in the South Hall at McCormick Place in Chicago. Metafix will present its strongest lineup of print products ever, aimed at helping printers monitor and control processes previously thought unmanageable. Now from prepress to press room to the conference room, Metafix has spent 25 years dedicated to helping its customers save money and improve quality while maintaining a high level of control and compliance with innovative technologies.
Metafix Technology Moves from Prepress to the Pressroom
The Metafix Fountain Solution Control System is designed and dedicated to digitizing Fountain Solution, giving pressroom operators the same level of measurement and control they expect in every other aspect of their printing processes. The Metafix FSC actively monitors and manages the Fountain Solution, which is critical to maintaining high print quality, and provides real time alerts to potentially harmful changes during a press run. By measuring pH, conductivity, temperature, and volume, and actively managing conductivity of the Fount, the Metafix FSC gives pressroom operators previously unattainable insight into this vital element of their printing operations. With the MetaTrax Environmental Management Service, pressroom operators have the ability to monitor and control a part of the process that had been previously thought unmanageable.
New for PRINT 13, Metafix is introducing an FSC dedicated to the sheetfed printer. Now both Web and Sheetfed operators can digitally monitor and manage their fountain solution. Click here for details.
Metafix Steadily Develops its CTP Prepress Offerings with the CTPpH and Developer Control Systems
The Metafix CTPpH Control System collects, monitors and neutralizes CTP waste. The system neutralizes pH using MetaAid, an environmentally friendly neutralizing agent, ermitting the safe onsite discharge of CTP waste developer. The process is automatic with detailed reports available via subscriptions to the MetaTrax Environmental Monitoring Service. Click here for details.
The Metafix Developer Control System monitors and manages developer, collects and filters harmful solids and other contaminants, and blends new and recycled developer using patented monitoring technology. Combined with the MetaTrax Environmental Management Service, the Metafix DCS achieves maximum savings without a degradation in plate quality and helps to reduce the amount of CTP developer being used while increasing throughput at the same time.
