Nashua NH, USA – February 13, 2012
ImageXpert Inc, leaders in providing measuring systems and solutions for verifying digital inkjet print quality, today certified Opaltone’s 6-color (CMYR’G’B’) digital ink set.
“We’ve tested literally hundreds of third-party inks and it’s not often we see one that’s comparable to an OEM ink such as EPSON,” said Yair Kipman, President ImageXpert Inc. “While printing our 600dpi inkjet test target ‘appears’ fairly straight-forward, our unique digital design is actually quite detailed in exposing typical inkjet deformities including: dot quality (satellites), text quality (fill-in), solid ink build up (drying), jet-out, color bleed & graininess etc. In fact, only 1 in 10 third- party inks meet our stringent quality requirements. Opaltone’s AquaFlo® ink set scored an impressive 9/10. This is quite rare indeed. We were particularly impressed with their inks ability
to overprint 6-colors @ 450% with perfect drying & no jet-out. What’s more amazing is their recently patented method in eliminating Pk, Lk & LLk. To save ink, Opaltone simulates Black by mixing R’G’B’ inks instead. I’ve never seen that before?” concluded Kipman.
ImageXpert can also measure and record inkjet droplets in flight using their unique frequency- actuated dispensing systems. Face-plate wetting visualization requires a 2-camera system.
One for the drop-in-flight analysis, the other for visualization of face-plate wetting during firing.
