The measurement of the right dot transfer on offset printing plates is a key segment of comprehensive process control in the printing industry. At the present, plate measurement technology based on microscopic image capture and processing is the established norm. TECHKON SpectroPlate unifies all advantages of this modern measurement technology in a compact, hand-held instrument.
35 years of experience in the development and manufacture of high quality measuring instruments have made us a competent partner and leading solution provider for color measurement.
The extraordinary high measurement accuracy of SpectroPlate is determined by the quality of the optical system and the performance of the image processing algorithms. Thanks to the excellent image capture quality and the ingenious graphic calculations, SpectroPlate can read precisely any screen size and screen technology: FM, AM or Hybrid screen. The spectrally white illumination and dynamic color evaluation permits reading all kinds of plate types and coated surfaces. The supplied Windows software connects the device to a PC. Measured values and transfer curves are displayed and stored. All measurement data can be used directly for linearizing a RIP powered plate processor. An exceptional feature is the enlarged view of the microscopic images.
