Ink zone density display of CMYK & Spot colors

The list of inks included in database is displayed. The four process colors C,M,Y and K are pre-installed. They are stored in the color book CMYK and are already marked by a screen color.

Data export

By using the "Export" function you can hand over individually edited inks and color books easily to another printing machine.

Statistical analysis and report generator

The resulting evaluations of the different statistical analyses can be printed out in so called reports.

Densitometric gray balance

The gray balance display will show densitometric gray balance values for CMY in a bar graph.

Dot area, dot gain & print contrast

Densitometric values can be solid density, dot area, dot gain or trapping values. Colorimetric values are typically CIE L*a*b or ∆E-color information.

Target values, references, tolerances, OK sheet

In measuring conditions section, a list of data sets for target values and tolerances will be displayed. It is based on ISO 12467 color values for CMYK. Individual target and tolerance settings can be made as well - also for spot colors.

Front & reverse printing

Using the buttons "to top side" and "to reverse side" you can switch between the measurement of the color bar length for top- and reverse-printing. This requires that a press with a reversing unit has been defined.
