Idealliance Releases New ‘Control Wedge’ Aimed at Large-Format, Industrial and Textile Markets
The technology is designed to help digital print users on non-traditional substrates control their print processes.
The Alexandria, Virginia-based International Digital Enterprise Alliance, better known as Idealliance, an organization that has introduced print standards and specifications such as G7, GRACoL and SWOP, along with many ISO standards that cover the industry, announces the release of its new Large-Format-Industrial-Textile Printing Control Wedge.
Geared toward users in the wide-format, industrial, and textile printing markets, Idealliance says its new control wedge is “the first of its kind for this segment of the industry.” It’s designed to help digital print users on non-traditional substrates control their print processes.
The Large Format-Industrial-Textile Printing Control Wedge is available at no cost from Idealliance. The control wedge comes in a variety of configurations, including default charts and reference files for the X-rite i1 Pro3 Plus, as well as the Barbieri Spectropad. These charts can be read with devices that have larger apertures, and work especially well in situations with uneven surfaces, textiles, and wide-format printing, the nonprofit says.
“This chart will help wide-format and users who print on non-traditional substrates,” says Tim Baechle, CEO of Idealliance. “It is another example of how Idealliance helps move the global supply chain, every segment and every print process within the industry. Idealliance has always led the development and implementation of color management and process control in wide format, industrial, textile printing and all printing processes in the industry. We have been certifying companies, technologies, OEMs and individuals throughout the world for an extremely long time and this is another breakthrough from Idealliance that we are bringing to this segment in order to continue to lead and serve.”
