SPEC has combined the latest hardware and software technology in the SPEC 4000 Ink Management System. The result is a system that provides the highest reliability, flexibility, and user-friendly operation available today. It is the perfect tool for printers to gain an edge in today’s competitive marketplace.
The system not only automates the dispensing of ingredients to provide excellent shade repeatability from batch to batch, but it serves as a complete Ink Management System.
The system handles everything from formula storage, to job scheduling, to batch dispensing, to inventory control, to production reporting. Exact batch sizes are quickly dispensed as needed by the presses. Press returns at the end of each job are weighed and returned to workoff inventory. This inventory, along with raw material inventory, is managed by the system. Each time a job is scheduled, the system checks workoff inventory and prompts the user if there are any available containers of the same colors used on the job being scheduled. In addition, the user can select, a color and have the system search for similar colors in workoff inventory. The system gives the user the closest color match to the desired color available in workoff inventory and calculates the ingredient adds required to make the desired color from the press return ink. This feature provides a very powerful tool to manage the problem of growing workoff inventory and saves thousands of dollars from being tied up in old, unused inventory.
