Save on ink without impacting on quality: Less ink consumption – more cost saving – higher quality!

Less ink consumption – more cost saving – higher quality: With its lower percentage of color ink, you reduce your printing costs without affecting the quality of your images. They retain their brilliance and colorfulness. By replacing CMY ink with less expensive ink, Inksave Pro automatically reduces your CMY ink expenses. At the same time OneVision Inksaving Pro increases your productivity. Less use of ink leads to shorter drying times which offers also better post-processing times in your daily production. Moreover the brilliance of your images remains constantly high.


Icons-The benefits of Inksave

Return on Investment and benefits

Example calculation:
Printing a 40-page daily newspaper that has a print run of 60,000 papers requires around 3,000 kg of color per month. OneVision’s Inksaving software makes it possible to save an average of 20% of color in newspaper printing. This means savings of 600 kg per month. Depending on the market and purchasing conditions the price varies per kg of color. For example you can estimate a price of 4 euro per kg of color. With this price the cost savings per months would be 600 kg x 4 €/kg = 2,400 €. If the price ratio continuously remains the same there are cost savings up to 30,000 € per year possible.
