ColorGATE has announced that its Productionserver is compatible with a range of new spectrophotometers, including X-Rite, Konica Minolta, Color Sentinel Systems and Techkon.
X-Rite Ci6X Series
When colour reproduction errors occur, the result is costly waste and rework: whether there is confusion between customer specifications and production output or batch-to-batch colour variations. The sphere spectrophotometers of the X-Rite Ci6X family reduce rejection rates and scrap and improve time to market and profitability. The Ci62 portable sphere spectrophotometer is a high-performance instrument uniquely suited for ensuring accurate colour measurement on reflective surfaces, including applications with textured materials or printing on metal substrates. The Ci64, X-Rite’s most precise handheld sphere spectrophotometer, is available in three models: with simultaneous SPIN/SPEX, correlated gloss, and an UV option.
Color Sentinel Systems CSS110
The family of in line Color Sentinel modeling spectrophotometers uses a revolutionary patented technology. There is no need for field calibration of the device. This enables installation in line with the paper path after the fuser output and before the finishing stations – thus it makes measurements at full production speeds possible.
Konica Minolta FD-5 and FD-7
The fluorescent spectrodensitometers FD-5 and FD-7 are equipped with the newest technology from Konica Minolta: the Virtual Fluorescence Standard (VFS). This technology enables colour evaluation considering fluorescence of paper using any illuminant, including the D50 (ISO 13655:2009 M1). The new VFS technology takes advantage of the optical, sensor and software technology cultivated through our long experience with colour-measuring instruments to enable virtual measurements using a variety of illuminants while including the effect of fluorescence in the measurement.
Konica Minolta FD-9
The key to success for a modern professional print business is automation and accuracy. The Konica Minolta FD-9 autoscan spectrophotometer is the ideal tool for print colour management, combining speed, accuracy, ease-of-use and versatility.
As a spectrodensitometer, SpectroDens combines the qualities of a highly accurate spectrophotometer and an easy-to-use densitometer. As the measurement is done spectral, the entire colour information – the spectral fingerprint of the colour – is precisely registered. The data is converted into measurement data for descriptive analysis and display: Densitometric data is widely used for quality control during the printing process. Colorimetric data is used for evaluation of print proofs, the creation of colour profiles in colour management as well as for colour matching and formulation of inks.
