The SpectroDrive scans press sheet color bars in a matter of seconds while simultaneously sending spectral and density measurement data to a PC running the Techkon Expresso software. Scan a 40″ press sheet in less than 8 seconds.
The measured density and color information is displayed with suggested density changes for more accurate color. The spectral color engine delivers unbeatable measurement accuracy and consistency over time.
The SpectroDrive can be used for automatic scanning or as a hand-held device for “spot check” measurements.
Measurement ModesM0/M1/M2/M3 for compliance with G7 and new ISO standards.
Screen on ScannerDisplays color values, density, battery/wireless status, and shows current measurement conditions.
Laser GuideVerify alignment of color bar more easily before scanning.
More RuggedSolid aluminum casing, wireless charger, improved wheel design.
G7 FunctionalityUse G7 functionality with recommended ink key specific adjustments of C,M,Y densities to obtain neutral values according to the G7 specification.
Ink Zone Control Strip Can Be PrintedAnd measured anywhere on the press sheet.
InkCheck Ensures More Accurate ColorInkCheck feature measures density and color and suggests ink key specific density changes to obtain more accurate color.
What printing presses and printing format does the system support?
There is no limitation in type or size of printing presses.
What print control strips should be used?
Any color bar will work. It may be necessary to edit the sequence of the measurement fields. This is a task which is easy to do and it has to be done only once.
What is the advantage of the TECHKON TCS print control strips?
The TCS print control strips have measurement patches for solid density in each ink zone. Additionally they supply all the necessary information for dot area 40 and 80 %, gray balance, ink trapping, slur and doubling.
Which system requirements do the software TECHKON ExPresso and ExPresso Pro have?
Microsoft Windows 7, 8, or 10. Two USB ports are reuqired: One for the wireless data transmission module and one for the security key (dongle).
