EasySet

Flexible pre-press job-naming convention: Job numbers displayed at the press match those shown on operators’ job tickets for user friendliness and to avoid mistakes.

Preview presets: Bar graph of computed presets overlaid on plate image. Computed ink-sweep presets shown numerically for faster assessment of sweep setting vs. key openings.

Auto-key compensation: Ink-key openings automatically compensate if sweeps are manually changed before presetting action is initiated.

Auto-learning by paper-type and ink-key: Each ink key has its own pre-setting curve, based on both historical data and paper type for maximum presetting accuracy: Saves time and reduces paper waste.

Spot color management: Job colors are shown by name in their respective hues. Color rotation is quickly set via system touch-screen.

EasyLoop

Once keys and sweeps are pre-set, keeping the correct color throughout the run is accomplished by EasyLoop and X-Rite color measurement instruments.Once a job is started, the press operator scans the color bar on a press sheet to get spectral and density data, and EasyLoop does the rest.

IntelliSet

Rutherford IntelliSet  includes a separate computer (the PreOPS) for automatically processing CIP or TIFF files sent from Prepress. The files are then sent to job folders in the PreOPS, ready for download upon selection by the press operators.

The system takes into account each individual key zone. If it is required create a uniform flatness on the sheet, all the fountain keys will not open in the same proportion. The IntelliSet software  applies learned,  individualized curves for each ink key to achieve this result. Repeated  learning takes into account the aging of the press as well as paper type, to  maintain pre-setting accuracy better than 93%.

Once the pre-setting step  is completed, the focus is now  on maintaining the right color throughout the run: it is the role of IntelliLoop in conjunction with X-Rite measuring devices to accomplish this.

When the press operator measures a press sheet, data is sent to IntelliLoop, which proposes a correction that the operator has the choice to  accept or reject.

The measurement data, fountain-key openings, and  and proposed corrections appear very clearly to the operators,  who know best  which decision to make. The touch interface is simple and well thought-out for the press operator. 

We are able to reach a 0,001 density setting with the ink keys. The solution has been tested with luxury packaging printers. It is a huge added values for light colors and packaging printers.

Measuring Devices

IntelliTrax2

Ultra-Fast Automated Press-Side Color Control

To remain competitive, printers and packaging converters must focus on reducing make-ready time and waste, and minimizing errors and rework. Managing color by eye and/or depending on ink density measurements will not deliver these requirements. By introducing IntelliTrax2 into the press-side quality control process, printers and packaging converters can assure optimum color quality, fast make-ready, and reduced waste.


Benefits

Scan results appear on system screen instantly so press operators can quickly invoke closed-loop color action, even before color drift is visible to the human eye.

Measures process colors, spot colors, PANTONE® colors, paper color, tone value increase, gray balance, and ink density in less than 10 seconds.


Scanning head does not contact the substrate 

Supports the majority of global graphic arts standards, including M1 to accommodate optical brighteners, M3 for measuring wet ink and full support for GRACoL, SWOP 2013, PSO, and FOGRA 51 and 52.


Directly accesses the PantoneLIVE database for accurate spectral target values for corporate and other spot colors and can exchange job data with ColorCert.

One Instrument, Ultimate Flexibility.

Cut your make ready time by more than 30%.

With a push of a button, the eXact Auto-Scan minimizes human error when scanning to maximize speed, reduce rework, and deliver a finished product that meets your customers tight tolerances. 

 

Improve Color Quality

Enhances spot color handling with creation and management of standards and color libraries on your device. Reduces variance among your instruments and verifies and/or profiles your device anytime on site with the addition of NetProfiler software


Reduce Material Waste

Fast, press-side, fully-automated capabilities (readings under 15 seconds), results in a reduction in waste and increased profitability. Increases workflow productivity by running jobs to specific targets and standardizing your production process 

Provides immediate, comprehensive reporting of color data through Bluetooth technology, allowing you to make prompt adjustments to the press run


Expand Your Workflow

Integrates with closed loop and third-party solutions such as Rutherford Graphics or Digital Information to deliver a mid-range solution for ink key control adjustments

Incorporates into your current workflow

eXact Auto-Scan

Setting the Standard for Color Measurement

Specifically designed for printers and packaging converters, the eXact Standard is the market leading spectrophotometer to validate the color of CMYK and spot color inks. It leverages job-based tools with industry color standards to increase press process control and connects with PantoneLIVE and NetProfiler to maximize color accuracy within the workflow.


Streamline Jobs on Press with Print Standard Support

The eXact Standard doesn't just provide density metrics and colorimetric value functions, it also supports all industry print standards: G7, ISO, PSO, and Japan Color. Plus, the BestMatch feature offers guidance to help you achieve a closer match to a specific color standard by adjusting ink on press.


Best in Spot Color Support

The eXact Standard offers the ability to create and manage standards and color libraries directly from the device for enhanced spot color handling. It also delivers direct and seamless access to the latest Pantone libraries and PantoneLIVE standards with an optional license.

About Us

Offset is a complex activity: lack of experienced operators, complex technologies and tools, multiple workflows and players, picky customers who don’t know our business, strong competition, pressure on quality, prices, and deadlines ...


Rutherford took up the challenge. We assembled a cross-functional team from the printing world and developed a solution to satisfy all partners with this objectives in mind: efficiency (technically and economically), simplicity (intuitive and automatic) and precision (objective and adaptive)


This was 20 years ago. Since then, Rutherford has driven innovation to fit the evolution of the printing industry and to increase its efficiency, simplicity, and accuracy.


Our mission:


1. To simplify the press operator’s tasks and make them more precise, using automation and precision ink-key management. 


2. To enfance quality for the buyer of print by providing print stability and repeatability.


3. To increase production, profitability, competitiveness, taking advantage of advanced presetting and closed-looping.


4. To reduce printer’s carbon footprint: more precision means less waste and less ink and energy usage
