The SpectraLab module ensures consistent color quality on every job and increases overall press productivity. Users gain rapid return on investment (ROI) and save valuable time with fast press set-up and deployment. In turn, customers benefit by reducing waste, resources and production costs, while preventing customer rejections.
SpectraLab delivers 100% automated enhanced in-line to off-line color measurement correlation with support for a wide range of presses, substrates and applications. The system detects and alerts absolute spectral color measurements from the printed area or from targets, and reliably measures color patches as small as 6×6 mm, at a maximum speed of 600m/min (1980 fpm).
Connectivity to X-Rite’s ColorCert© enhances color performance visibility with clear measurable results to drive performance and color quality consistency to your customers. The connectivity between SpectraLab & ColorCert is seamless, automating the SpectraLab set-up process, continuously measuring the color targets throughout production and automatically sends the measurements data back to ColorCert. With this connectivity, you’ll reduce non-productive press time, minimize the number of offline measurements required and simplifies color quality reporting to your customers.
Quick Setup provides fast, automatic “zero set-up” time for repeating jobs.
XRGA (X-Rite’s Graphic Arts) standard Certification is available for SpectraLab, ensuring that its measurements correlate to your other XRGA Certified handheld devices. This certification ensures that you use the same metrology standard, thus, utilizing advances in both color science and new international standards, reducing color measurements discrepancies.
A fully-automated in-line spectral measurement and monitoring module, SpectraLab ensures that you print to the numbers, supporting your color make-ready and production, saving valuable time and costly press stops. SpectraLab works seamlessly on AVT’s market-leading Apollo, Argus and Helios print inspection systems.
SpectraLab accurately measures color on a wide variety of substrates and applications used in the packaging industry., from paper and carton boards, to flexible materials, clear and opaque substrates, surface or reverse print.
SpectraLab supports ISO standard, dual-beam spectral color measurements on existing color targets or in image areas for absolute, accurate CIE L*a*b*, ISO-standard Status T or Status E density, and Tone Value measurement with enhanced reporting and a complete color workflow. Automatic color calibration is performed periodically during the scanning operation.
With tools to make every part of your packaging workflow better, getting started has never been easier.
