Epson Announces New SpectroProofer In-Line Spectrophotometer

Epson announced the SpectroProofer ® -UVS, a new in-line spectrophotometer for its 17-, 24- and 44-inch Epson Stylus® Pro printers. Developed jointly with X-Rite, and driven by supporting RIP technology, these optional SpectroProofers provide automated color management and verification-related tasks in a wide variety of proofing applications. The new SpectroProofer-UVS models support the M1 measurement illumination standard and are UV selectable between M1 and M2. Additionally the UVS models support up to 50% more patches per scan and slightly faster measurement times. The SpectroProofer series allows for color consistency between Epson 17-, 24- and 44-inch printers, making them ideal for commercial graphics, package proofing, and remote proofing applications. Current SpectroProofer owners have the option to upgrade to the new ILS30EP component of SpectroProofer-UVS models to ensure full compatibility with the latest industry standards.

X-Rite Inc. and Pantone LLC Demonstrates New Solutions for Solving Colour Problems at PLASTPOL in Kielce, Poland

X-Rite Inc. and Pantone LLC will demonstrate new solutions for solving colour management problems for processors of plastics and rubber at the 18th Annual PLASTPOL show to be held 27-30 May in Kielce, Poland. Representatives from X-Rite Pantone and company partner Reprograf S.A. will demonstrate hardware and software solutions that range from the newly introduced Ci6x Series handheld spectrophotometers to the Ci4200 Series countertop spectrophotometers at stand A-119 at the Congress and Exhibition Centre of Kielce Trade Fairs. X-Rite Pantone also offers an online resource called World of Plastics as a convenient way for PLASTPOL visitors or those who couldn't attend the show to access a wide range of useful information on color measurement and management solutions for the plastics industry. One solution that will be highlighted at the show is X-Rite’s Ci6x Series of versatile spherical spectrophotometers that provides tighter controls of incoming materials, in-process samples and finished coatings. The Ci6x Series yields simultaneous specular included or specular excluded measurements in less than 2 seconds to determine if color variance is caused by appearance, and the instrument generates audit trails to ensure productivity for facilities with multiple sites. In addition, the company will be showing solutions for plastics and rubber applications that include: MA9X Series of handheld multi-angle spectrophotometers that includes the MA98 for special effect coatings, the only device that meets the ASTM standard (E2539) for measuring interference pigments; Color i 7 bench top spectrophotometer a reference instrument for reliable digital workflow and error-free measurement at all opacity levels on plastic, coated, and liquid samples; RM200QC pocket-sized spectrocolourimeter that can be used to compare the colours of lab samples or plastic parts in the field with reference standards, then create reports that can be shared with supply chain partners; Color iMatch system that provides quick, accurate colour analysis and colour formulations for materials; and, Color iQC quality control software that removes the guesswork from evaluating colour and increases efficiency while ensuring accurate colour control.

X-Rite Incorporated Announces the Availability of eXact Scan

X-Rite Incorporated announced the availability of eXact Scan, a new option that extends the functionality of the X-Rite eXact spectrophotometer platform. eXact Scan adds unmatched speed, flexibility and new quality control tools to the eXact color measurement instruments for the printing and packaging industries. When combined with InkKeyControl software from X-Rite, eXact Scan enables color management at a low cost of entry, enabling printers to extend the useful lives of their presses. InkKeyControl allows printers to achieve faster make-ready and improve quality control through control of ink keys. It displays real-time measurement results in a graphical red/yellow/green “traffic light” report, which enables press operators to quickly manage changes as they print. The eXact Scan Option extends the instrument’s ability to accurately read conventional and non-continuous strips for quality assurance applications, such as flexo printing for packaging. Also, it is the ideal solution for offset litho printers that have large capital investments in older presses that aren’t equipped with in-line color measurement capabilities. With a few simple steps, pressroom personnel can install the new eXact Scan chassis and software to greatly extend the ability of the eXact spectrophotometer to accurately read different length color bars on a variety of printed materials.
