To reproduce color accurately and consistently, definitive communication of that color is the critical key to success. Ratified as an ISO standard in 2015, the Color Exchange Format (CxF) provides a vehicle to share color targets and results throughout the flexographic production process.
With its diverse capabilities, CxF has usage applications for the entire flexographic workflow. As a method of sharing color targets from brand owners to premedia, CxF helps improve the proofing quality of brand colors. As the job progresses through the workflow into the ink kitchen, the complete spectral curve which can be carried inside a CxF file helps assure proper ink formulation and manufacturing. Once on press, the same CxF data can be utilized for process control and verification by quality assurance technicians.
Join Dan and Steve as their CxF representatives from brand owners, graphic designers, ink technicians and printers share how they individually and collectively utilize CxF data to its fullest capabilities. Together, these experts will share their insights on the future of the format and how it can be leveraged today to bring the most value to your flexographic workflow.
For more than 60 years, FTA has been enabling flexographers to grow their skills, connect with likeminded individuals, expand their reachable market and drive flexography to package printing dominance.
