Supporting the highest possible production speeds, SpectraLab accurately measures color on a wide variety of substrates, from paper and carton boards, to flexible materials, clear and opaque substrates, surface or reverse print.
SpectraLab’s Measurement Unit obtains measurements in the reflectance domain by means of a dual-beam spectrophotometer that acquires measurements at specific spectral wavelengths. To achieve absolute spectral color measurements from the printed area or from targets, the system consistently measures color patches as small as 6×6 mm, at a maximum speed of 600m/min (1,980 fpm). When colors start to shift out of tolerance, the system alerts on deviations, according to the thresholds defined by the operator. SpectraLab displays the measurement results of each color measured, including color trend over time, and color appearance against the original target color.
All measurements are continuously recorded and can be either displayed in AVT’s reporting mechanism, PrintFlow, exported for further analysis offline or can be connected to X-Rite’s ColorCert©. SpectraLab supports common file formats, enabling fast and easy communications with 3rd party color libraries and reporting systems.
