Inline Color Measurement Maximizes Color Control & Minimizes Waste

Brian Gamm, Esko

Global standards drive print buyers to demand perfectly reproduced brand colors for their packages and labels. This requires converters to print to the numbers and prove color accuracy, all while manufacturing at the highest production speeds and volumes. Measuring only limited color points in each roll is inaccurate, time-consuming, and requires frequent operator intervention.

Brian will explain how inline color measurement systems give instant feedback during production and makeready, recommending adjustments on the fly, so you can respond to changes in real time and avoid costly ink re-formulation. In addition, learn how connectivity to your color management systems streamlines the evaluation of color quality and increases the efficiency of color reporting.
