Techkon USA to Introduce Newest SpectroVision Inline Color Measurement System at Labelexpo Americas 2022

July 14, 2022 -- Danvers, Massachusetts -- Techkon USA, an innovative leader of advanced color measurement instruments and integrated color management software for commercial printing and industrial applications, has announced they’ll be exhibiting in booth #5800 at Labelexpo Americas 2022. The tradeshow is a live event being held September 13th - 15th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago, IL.

Sales and technical support representatives from Techkon will be demonstrating the latest innovations of their SpectroVision™ inline color measurement system, as well as their newest handheld, all-in-one spectrodensitometer, SpectroDens™ 4.

In the booth will be a demonstrable version of a SpectroVision system designed specifically for retrofitting Mark Andy, Nilpeter, Bobst, Olmet, Domino, MPS and Gallus flexographic and digital presses for automated color measurement and control.

SpectroVision is a cost-efficient and feature-rich inline system that dramatically improves the color measurement and bar code reading process to keep presses moving at high speeds and to help flexo printers reduce waste and increase profits from job to job. Each system includes an ultra-precise color spectrophotometer, 2D camera (for web viewing), a dedicated press-side PC/command console and 2 seats of Techkon’s ChromaQA color management software suite.

Latest Features of SpectroVision for 2022 Include:

  • Increased measurement speed - Allows for a 30% reduction in the required color patch length
  • MediaSynx™ - Optional feature to more closely align the SpectroVision measurements with other pressroom handheld or reference instruments. This is particularly useful when measuring translucent and transparent materials.
  • Expanded InkCheck™ functionality to provide press operators with easy and actionable ink density modifications to quickly achieve the lowest possible deltaE on press
  • Enhanced web viewing functionality including multiple saved locations, custom delay/hold times and camera settings including zoom, brightness, contrast and saturation
  • Bar code grading functionality now supports the “Intelligent Mail Barcode”, a 65-bar US Postal Service™ barcode
  • Smaller form factor and mounting brackets for retrofitting onto any press
  • Upgraded motorized transport arm for faster movement across the web and support of unlimited press widths
