inkWIZE is a colour server solution that uses high quality Device Link profiles to convert from RGB and CMYK colour spaces to CMYK and reduces overall ink consumption.
inkWIZE is simple to set up, easy to use and saves money in more ways than just lowering ink bills. inkWIZE users can expect average ink savings of 25,% but will also see savings due to improved make-ready, faster drying and faster running speeds for the press.
inkWIZE uses the latest Device Link and GCR technologies in a PDF hot folder workflow. inkWIZE converting files to a standard printing condition such as FOGRA 39L(ISOCoatedv2) and reduces total ink coverage in one operation that takes seconds.
inkWIZE is a modular product that allows you to add MultiColor, AutoCurves and AutoLinks as future add-ons.
Save up to 60% of ink costs
Badly prepared files by designers and pre-press professionals costs printers thousands of pounds everyday. inkWIZE automated workflow removes these hidden costs and makes the printing process easier. PDF files that pass through the inkWIZE server are converted to the ideal printing condition and unnecessary ink coverage is removed from the separations, leaving a stronger black plate but much weaker CMY plates. Throughout the process the colour appearance of the file remains intact with a slightly better contrast.
The latest version of inkWIZE shows you how much ink you are saving.
Faster running times with inkWIZE
Reduced excess ink coverage enables the press to run faster due to the elimination of tack issues such as picking, piling, poor trapping, back trapping and the associated wash-up delays. This loss of productivity is a cost to the business that is unrecoverable from the customer and so comes straight off the bottom line. inkWIZE running as part of the workflow eliminates these issues.
Less ink makes duct adjustments more responsive in both closed-loop and manual set-ups. The operator will hit the perfect OK sheet that much faster and this gives additional savings in wastage and time.
inkWIZE reduced TAC requires less spray powder, decreases drying times and rub problems again saving time and money.
In any busy print shop files arrive in a wide variety of conditions that need to be resolved. inkWIZE will correct files containing RGB, the wrong or no associated ICC profile, spot color conversion. The result is PDF files that are print ready to industry standards all processed automatically at very high speed.
How it works
inkWIZE is simple to set up and easy to use. inkWIZE comes with a choice of standard DeviceLink sets that cover most printing conditions and ink saving options, One click selects the desired DeviceLink and inkWIZE auto-setup configures the rest. You are immediately ready to process PDF, JPEG or TIFF files. Specific settings for handling spot colours and PDF specific settings are easily configurable.
In any busy print shop no one wants to sit and wait for colour conversions to take place. inkWIZE with its DeviceLink profiles is the world's fastest PDF colour server processing batch files in seconds. Due to the advanced algorithms within inkWIZE users don't need a high spec super computer to run the program. inkWIZE runs happily on a single processor 1Ghz processor, although faster processors will improve performance.

inkWIZE optional modules
With the addition the MultiColor option, inkWIZE can convert and optimize multicolor profiles. Printers interested in HexacChromeÂ®, OpaltoneÂ® and other multicolor solutions will find this an extremely valuable option. Further details are available on a separate web page.
Instead of "normal" ICC colour conversion with device-dependent profiles, AutoLink generates a DeviceLink profile "on-the-fly", based on the output profiles involved and the rendering intent. inkWIZE uses AutoLink not only for RGB-to-CMYK, but also for CMYK-to-CMYK, Grey-to-Grey, Grey-to-CMYK, and CMYK-to-Grey conversion.

The AutoCurves option allows users to generate curves that can be applied to your files at the end of the conversion process, e.g. for fine-tuning to a specific printing process.Click here to find out more
Does this include Devicelink profiles?
I think is including the Devicelink, you can install after a look !
Installed. There are devicelink icc's, demo that is.
You need the devicelink icc (not demo) to make the color conversion applicable to your workflow.
Im not really sure about the percentage.icc if it will work. Will try it though. Thanks for this.
I need this software, if any has patch for this i'll give you donations :)
