Pricing starts at $40,000
FOR FLEXO, GRAVURE & OFFSET WEB PRESSES
Techkon’s SpectroVision is an inline color quality solution that improves accuracy of brand colors and customer color specifications. Customers told us that, while they recognize the benefits of inline color control for flexographic printing, the high price of current solutions has put them out of reach for all but the largest printers. The SpectroVision is affordable for printers of all sizes, while still enabling significant make ready savings, and increased color accuracy and consistency.

Because legacy devices are limited to measuring only one patch in the color bar for each sheet, getting to accurate color means wasting many sheets and a large volume of ink. By contrast, the SpectroVision inline color quality solution can measure more than 100 color bar patches in a single printed impression. As a result, the SpectroVision provides measurement data back to the press operator at blazingly fast speeds, cutting time and material for traditional make ready in half. In addition, SpectroVision is also capable of performing ISO/ANSI style bar code grading when it’s not measuring color!
The included ChromaQA color quality software lets users quickly create jobs that specify exact measurement locations, color reference values, and customer-specific tolerances. During the press run, intuitive graphs and charts give operators immediate color results, along with adjustment recommendations. This means problems are caught and corrected before any material is wasted.
Brand owners are holding printers more accountable than ever for color accuracy and color consistency. The SpectroVision enables you to meet the requirements of every client (and prove it), while saving time and money on every job.
The SpectroVision can measure color patches, color bars, and even specific in-image locations for more accuracy where color matters the most – in the image. Operators get instant feedback regarding key print attributes and specific ink adjustments to minimize deltaE’s and maximize the color accuracy of brand colors and customer color specifications.
As an inline color quality solution, the SpectroVision measures in real-time at press speeds up to 305 m/min (1,000 ft/min) which shortens make-ready cycles and increases profitability by eliminating the need to stop the press for handheld measurements. Detecting color shifts before they go out of specification makes them easier to correct; eliminating waste.
The included Techkon ChromaQA software serves as the hub for managing inline color quality across multiple operators, multiple departments, and multiple print locations, ensuring consistent results. powerful data analysis tools let you learn from your production data for ongoing process improvements and cost savings.
ISO/ANSI style bar code grading is also possible while the press is running at production speeds with the optional Bar Code Grading module. In-line bar code grading allows you to detect problems immediately instead of when the roll is finished. Catch bar code problems as they occur to reduce waste, save money, and increase confidence in the product you are delivering!
