Fiery and Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) have announced a technology partnership to develop innovative print system solutions for the industrial inkjet market.
The companies will leverage their expertise in digital front ends (DFEs) and printhead drive electronics, software, and ink delivery systems to enhance inkjet press performance, improve print quality, and automate workflows. In addition, GIS will now offer the Fiery Impress DFE for industrial inkjet presses, to its customers.
The integrated solution will combine Fiery Impress and GIS printhead drive electronics supported by the GIS Atlas software platform. The companies say it will provide press manufacturers and inkjet integrators with a hassle-free, ready-to-go solution that includes colour and workflow software, hardware, and robust support. The Fiery DFE’s scalability, when combined with the robust GIS electronics and core software, offers unique opportunities that can be tailored to meet any press requirement.
Superior colour management
They add that the solution offers superior colour management, automation, and integrated workflow tools. This enables rapid inkjet product development and provides print system builders with added value and a faster return on investment, according to Fiery and GIS. In addition, printers benefit from innovative inkjet systems with precise colour control and efficient and easily customizable workflows that improve quality and drive profitability.
Toby Weiss, chief executive at Fiery, says, “By joining forces with GIS, we want to make inkjet printing more profitable for customers across a broader range of applications and accelerate overall inkjet adoption.
“The combination of Fiery Impress and GIS technology provides printers with a complete workflow solution to efficiently produce more jobs using inkjet presses. Leveraging prepress, color management, job management, VDP, MIS integration, and cloud analytics, printers can reduce manual touches, improve productivity, and grow their inkjet operations.”
Steve Williamson, general manager GIS, says, “Collaboration is key within the inkjet industry,” said. “We are delighted to join forces with Fiery and be able to offer a combined inkjet development technology platform to reduce time to market for print system builders and OEMs.”
