Stork Offers New Version Of Its Color Physics System

Netherlands-based Stork has introduced the 4.1 version of its Color Physics System (CPS), a
software program for color measurement, recipe calculation and correction. CPS now runs under
Windows NT and features an open interface that allows easy communication with any CAD system. The
program converts color information on designs and colorways into color recipes, as well as
transmitting information on the available basic colors to the digital pre-print systems. The CPS
can be linked directly to a Stork IPS2/Saturn color kitchen for automatic recipe dispensing and
forwarding design/colorway information to production. Stork lists cost savings, flexibility and
efficiency as some of the advantages offered by the software. The CPS will determine which
dyestuffs should be used and what the maximum dyestuff yield should be, as well as indicating the
price per calculated recipe.
