Uteco Converting S.p.A. and QuadTech, Inc. are partnering to demonstrate the benefits of the newest color management technology at Uteco’s headquarters outside of Verona, Italy. The demonstrations of QuadTech’s ColorTrack and Color Measurement with DeltaCam are set to be featured at Uteco’s facility beginning in mid-September.

QuadTech’s ColorTrack, a unique new color management software for flexo and gravure packaging applications, is an industry-first highly adaptive color expert in a box solution for packaging printers. With a variety of options for handheld and inline configurations, the software facilitates fast, accurate press-side correction of ink formulations. Without any hardware modifications to the press, it automates the process of delivering absolute consistency from press-to-press, shift-to-shift and plant-to-plant.

Color Measurement with DeltaCam, launched at last year’s Drupa, makes advanced, inline spectral measurement affordable to individual packaging print houses.

“We could not be more pleased to join forces with one of the most technologically innovative companies in the flexographic and rotogravure printing industries,” says QuadTech president Karl Fritchen. “Uteco’s reputation and commitment to forward-thinking research and development is perfectly aligned with QuadTech’s efforts to bring new cost efficiencies and powerful color management solutions to the market.”

Mr. Aldo Peretti, Uteco CEO comments: “Uteco Group demonstrates that we are state-of-the-art by investing and operating on the major guidelines that make the industry a 4.0 business, and by making large investments with particular attention to research, development, knowledge and innovation. In a complex and niche market, Uteco has become a market-reference thanks to its investments in new technologies and in automation. We also invest in continuous organizational improvements, in line with the World Class Manufacturing.”
