X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC, today announced it has joined forces with ColorPartner, a German company, to help automate color management for industrial inkjet applications. The unique solution combines the ColorPartner ColorScout A+ automated color measurement table and X-Rite’s Ci6x family of sphere spectrophotometers allowing industrial printers to accurately measure color on metallic, wood, plastic, ceramic and textured materials. The new Ci6X/ColorScout A+ solution will be made available through a variety of RIP manufacturers that support industrial inkjet output devices.
“Inkjet technology makes it possible to print on a wide variety of materials, opening up new opportunities to industrial and commercial printers from fast fashion to flooring to packaging to home décor,” said Jan Keller, Vice President, X-Rite. “With higher material costs, printers cannot risk color errors that may be inherent in a manual measuring process. The Ci6x/ColorScout A+ solution eliminates these potential errors and can quickly and easily pay for itself by ensuring less waste due to color issues, increasing profitability and speeding time to market for brand owners and manufacturers alike.”
As the market moves to greater use of industrial inkjet, there is a growing need for an automated measurement solution that can quickly measure color across flat, textured and reflective surfaces. The popular 45/0-based measurement devices used in graphic arts applications are ideal for smooth or matte surfaces but have limited capabilities for textured or reflective materials.
The Ci6x/ColorScout A+ solution, in A3+ size (other standard sizes: A2+, A1+; others on request) accommodating materials up to 515mm by 310mm (20.3 x 12.2 inches) and up to 30mm (1.18 inches) (60mm (2.36 inches) optional) thick, is ideal for measuring color on surfaces that do not…
