Technical Innovation Award for Esko Equinox

USA Esko Equinox received the prestigious Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) Technical Innovation Award in the category of prepress-graphics. The award recognizes companies and/or individuals whose visions and perseverance bring new products and technologies to the flexographic marketplace. For nearly 20 years, FTA has recognized and celebrate those creative thinkers and risk-takers who seek ways to further refine and advance the flexographic printing process and who bring significant contributions to the industry in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture.

Equinox Expanded Colour Gamut (ECG) technology is Esko’s patented technology for converting packaging graphics from CMYK and spot colour to seven-colour process. It is applied in the prepress department when preparing jobs for press. Converting entire files results in extremely close matches to spot colours, improved pictorial images, and the ability to print more colours than available ink stations on the press, resulting in improved image quality and brand impact. The major benefit is realized in the pressroom as jobs print more economically and more consistently.
