Castellón, Spain – 28 March 2016 – At the recent Expo Revestir, São Paolo, and Indian Ceramics Ahmedabad international exhibitions, EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII) showcased its latest Fiery® technology update for Cretaprint™ ceramic inkjet printers. Available to users this month, the new proServer for Cretaprint 2.0 helps customers retain their competitive edge by producing superior-quality designs faster, with improved colour management and reduced ink costs.

Improved costing and colour management for ceramic tile decoration

The new product helps boost productivity, improves colour precision and provides important economic benefits for ceramic tile manufacturers. A new and unique Smart Ink Saving feature incorporates users’ actual ink costs to calculate the most affordable ink combination possible for each pixel of a design. And, a new CMYK+spot colour mode on the proServer simplifies editing tasks without limiting the product’s full technical capabilities. Users also gain higher-quality imaging matched to specific decoration requirements – a benefit of the Fiery product’s advanced colour management support for both standard and special-effect ink sets. 

In addition, the Fiery proServer also plays an important role in the complete EFI Cretaprint ecosystem of advanced inkjet printers, Cretacolor inks and server technologies that enable greater productivity, efficiency and quality in ceramic tile decoration production lines.

EFI is committed to drive the continued transition from analogue to digital manufacturing in the industrial ceramic decoration market,” said José Luis Ramon Moreno, vice president and general manager, EFI Cretaprint. “Adding the Smart Ink Saving functionality, where users can dynamically control ink volumes and cost savings per design, means the benefits of introducing Fiery colour management are even more compelling.”

The new Fiery proServer has additional colour engine enhancements for even better colour control and precision. The product’s Smart Ink Saving feature, combined with the proven Fiery ColorWise® colour management technology also included with the proServer, can help users reduce ink costs by up to 15% compared with ICC production methods.

Users also gain faster processing and profiling speeds with the new proServer, and it now offers full Turkish language support, and support for simplified Chinese characters.

This new upgrade supports the latest Windows® operating system and Mac OS® platforms and is available to all Fiery proServer for Cretaprint users with a valid EFI Software Maintenance and Support Agreement.
