You are guided through the addition of the base inks by a progress bar, and can then use the weight indicator for the precise amount.  Should you leave out any of the bases, or not be within tolerances, you will be warned before you quit the mixing sequence.

As with all PANTONE Formula Scales, you simply select the PANTONE Color you want to mix, enter the quantity, then put a container onto the weigh pan and step through the mixing sequence. The scales will compute the exact amounts of each of the base inks required, and warn you of any potential problems.

Context sensitive information is available at the touch of a button, so you can easily check a formula, the quantities of base inks required or the progress of the mix. You can also select from a number of options, including a choice to work in kg or lbs.

The PANTONE Formula Scale 3 builds on the success of the classic PANTONE Formula Scale, proven by thousands of printers throughout the world to be the best way to accurately mix up PANTONE colors, with the latest technology providing a host of advanced features.
