Colex is a in Luxembourg based enterprise, founded by the two owners Alfred Schmitz and Mike Watgen in 2023.
Colex is sales partner of Hamillroad Software for Digitally Modulated Screening (DMS) in the EU.
Colex combines ECG/Fixed Palette Printing with a revolutionary Digitally Modulated Screening (DMS), developed by Hamillroad Software UK (www.hamillroad.com) for offset and flexographic printing. With this unique combination you will be able to print spot colours without spot colour inks.
The ECG CMYK OGV colour gamut covers up to 95 % of the complete colour range.
Expanded Color Gamut/Fixed Palette Printing is the practice of using a set of 4 or more inks - typically 7 to achieve a larger color gamut than that of CMYK. Expanded Color Gamut/Fixed Palette Printing is a cost-effective alternative to spot color printing.
