X-Rite, Flint Group announce global partnership

Published 11 April 2018

Flint Group’s Paper & Board business has entered into a new partnership with X-Rite to deliver a colour solution that leverages the X-Rite eXact and NetProfiler to reliably meet the colour management needs of each stakeholder in the package print value and supply chain.

Flint Group’s Paper & Board business has entered into an exciting new partnership with X-Rite, the global leader in colour science and technology to deliver a colour solution that leverages the X-Rite eXact and NetProfiler to reliably meet the colour management needs of each stakeholder in the package print value and supply chain.

VIVO Colour Solutions is a dynamic colour communication and service platform supported by Flint Group’s centralised colour service provider, the Global Colour Centre (GCC).

VIVO ColourCloud utilises the eXact device to provide a central web-based self-service digital colour repository, containing thousands of approved and tested colours. Customers benefit from the ability to easily search and download CxF files, DigiSwatches, and ink recipes.

X-Rite printing and imaging product portfolio manager Ray Cheydleur said: “This partnership will benefit Flint Group’s customer base of printers around the world.  Utilising X-Rite's NetProfiler software for verifying device performance, along with the award-winning eXact handheld spectrophotometer, will provide ultimate agreement of measured colours amongst Flint Group and their printing and converter clientele.  

“When paired with VIVO Colour Solutions, this technology will provide the basis for converter confidence in their ink supply, and a competitive advantage to deliver consistent colour packaging.”

Mr. Duffy goes on to say, “Following rigorous beta testing at a number of corrugated sites, our initial expectations have been surpassed.  The sites conducted hundreds of searches from VIVO ColourCloud with every download achieving 100% ‘Right First Time.’
