The participants were extremely impressed with the capabilities of the (IQ-501) and how it can reduce the set-up time for the printer, automatically making adjustments on the density, tone, colour and front-to-back registration, that have previously been made manually. This significantly helps reduce the time consumed for the adjustments and contributes to operation rate of the printing machine and also to shorter turnaround, enabling stable delivery and high-quality print products.
There was also Demonstration on AccurioPro Solutions covering scope from Pre-Press Applications to Job and Device Management that would enhance efficiency for Professional Printers.
