is an inline colour measuring system. A camera system is integrated directly into the press with LED illumination and permits fully automatic ink density measurements in control strips. The control strips can be positioned either at the front or in the centre of the sheet.
As soon as printing starts, the control strips are scanned directly in the press and the measured solid densities are presented on the screen in a live graphic display. The measurements are used as a basis for fast, dynamic inline colour correction. It is furthermore possible to create inline measurement reports in PDF format.
After the measuring system is set up, all measuring patches are scanned on every printed sheet, right up to maximum production speed. The first setting corrections are realised immediately after the job start; once in production, a control cycle of 10 sheets is effective.
