Learn what happens when you use more or less samples and change profile settings, like table size. Reverse engineer a data set from mystery ICC profile when no data set is available. See the good, the bad, and the funky in color data and how to work with what you’ve got.

    • Techkon Introduces the SpectroDens Premium

      SpectroDensSince the release of the original SpectroDens in 2007, the way we measure color has never been the same.  When Techkon released this fast, accurate color measurement device for color quality control in all print environments, they introduced a wealth of abilities into the world of color measurement.  Quality managers are able to quickly check color accuracy using Pass/Fail, and with Techkon’s unique Ink Check feature, that specifies specific ink density adjustments to bring color into customer specified tolerances, measurement has never been the same.  This innovator in quality isn't giving up there, however.  Techkon has once again surprised its customers with the release of the next generation of their famous product line, the SpectroDens Premium.  Techkon is a global leader in the manufacturing of densitometers, spectrophotometers, and software solutions, and it comes as no surprise to hear they've once again stormed the market with a great revision of their already outstanding hardware.

      Designed With Productivity in Mind

      SpectroDens Premium
      The latest version of Techkon's famed hardware features some very exciting new features, such as a more compact design, improved ergonomics, wireless capabilities, and a high resolution color display.  All of these new features come together to provide an easier, more pleasant experience to the operator.  By utilizing a high resolution color display, the SpectroDens improves productivity by providing the operator with a visual representation of CIE L*a*b* values.  The new wireless capabilities enable the operator to more easily take measurements without the need to be tethered to a computer.  Another great feature of this sleek new product is the addition of tracking wheels on the bottom of the device.  These wheels assist in shortening scan measurements of color control bars by keeping the device perfectly aligned with the bar.  When coupled with the excellent service provided by Techkon, it's hard to find a reason not to upgrade.

      Industry Innovators

      Techkon

      Techkon is committed to customer satisfaction. The new generation SpectroDens shows just how much Techkon is committed to developing color measurement solutions to better serve all customers’ needs for quality, efficiency and accuracy. Every product that they produce is of the highest quality standards. With the introduction of the SpectroDens Premium, the Techkon family is becoming ever more influential in the way we measure the world around us. Other Techkon products include the SpectroJet, SpectroDrive, SpectroPlate, ES5000, and SpectroEdge.
