It uses UV curing inks, has injection heads and prints in CMYK and light cyan/light magenta or orange/violet, which broadens the color spectrum to cover 90 percent of Pan- tone colors. One of the reasons why U.S. Display Group chose the Barberán press was because of the flexibility to buy inks from several different suppliers. The company uses Toyo Inks and Fuji Primers. So far, the primary substrates through the machine have been mottled white and white top liners as well as kraft, Foam core and Coroplast.
