RSG Solutions Offers a complete Packaging Mockup solution by the industry award-winning ORIS Flex Pack // Web combined with ORIS Professional Media. The software has an interface to the LEC and VS line of Roland DG printers allowing you to create contract-quality package proofs and prototypes from both continuous tone and halftone data. Users benefit from a high level of color
A perfectly tuned system – for color-accurate production of packaging proofs and prototypes
Do you need to produce color-accurate packaging proofs and samples efficiently and with ease? Are complex finishing effects also a requirement? Then FLEX PACK is the right solution for you!
The system was developed specially for these applications and offers everything you need to achieve perfect results accurately and cost-effectively.
A huge advantage: FLEX PACK was designed as a complete system. The ultimate combination of extremely powerful software, specific printer hardware, special extended gamut inks, and a large portfolio of proofing substrates are available.
Of course, all components are perfectly harmonized – creating an ideal workflow and optimal results without any effort.
An additional plus: FLEX PACK was developed in close cooperation with leading companies in the packaging industry and has been used successfully worldwide for many years. End-users appreciate the absolute precision, reliability, and enormous flexibility of the system.
FLEX PACK and its continuous development benefits from years of packaging experience in coordination with our many customers and partners within the industry – and so do you: The packaging industry is always dynamic and subject to change. We react to these quickly and competently in order to always give our customers the optimum tools to improve their daily business.
FLEX PACK is available in a variety of different configurations, highlighted in further detail.
FLEX PACK – The software for packaging proofs and samples
The software was specially designed for the characteristics and highest requirements of the packaging industry. It is based on our patented iterative 4D color management technology and contains all the functions and modules to produce various packaging proofs and packaging samples immediately, easily, and cost-effectively.
Functions such as pre-flighting, soft-proof, and proof certification are integrated, raster data such as Esko LEN are supported and the program naturally has packaging-specific spot color management that converts spectral data natively and even simulates the overprinting of spot colors perfectly.
Furthermore, cloud-based color databases such as the CGS ORIS CxF CLOUD or PantoneLIVE® are integrated.
FLEX PACK is available in different versions. Below, two of them are described in detail.
In this latest addition to the system, FLEX PACK is combined with the Mutoh ValueJet 628 MP, which is a digital piezo inkjet printer, specifically developed for the special requirements and needs of the packaging industry (further information can be found here).
This new solution is a real breakthrough for the industry, as it enables ‘Direct-to-Substrate-Proofing’, meaning true printing on original substrates – something many customers have been searching years for.
In addition to printing on substrates such as shrink films and other extremely thin flexibles, the new solution is particularly suited for proofing on uncoated label stock or cardboard.
Unlike UV inks, the specially developed new XG INKS retains the look & feel and all other physical properties of the substrate, thus making it possible to create a proof or prototype which cannot be distinguished from the final product.
The current ink set contains CMYK, Lc, Lm, and white ink which offers a large color space. The inks have excellent adhesion to coated and uncoated substrates, are non-toxic, odorless, and have unique stretching and shrinking properties.
This is particularly important for the production of shrink sleeves, as the distortion of the artwork can be checked in advance on the original shrink material.
Therefore, this is the ideal solution for those proofing applications where the use of transfer films with solvent-based inks or printing with UV inks is not the optimum approach. accuracy and enormous cost savings.
