Total Color Control It's as important to you as it is to your customers. In today's competitive printing industry,increasing pressure to adopt reliable process control means objective color measurement. Now with the SXY Scanning Densitometer, color swatches can be measured ANYWHERE on the press sheet. Shorter makeready time gets you up to color fast with less waste and means a big improvement in daily production levels. Fast, Accurate Advanced 2-dimensional scanning in a few seconds Densities are rapidly measured and recorded as the scanning head sweeps across the sheet, methodically evaluating your targeted points along both X and Y axes. The SXY measures absolute or relative density, dot grain, trap and contrast for comparison with your "OK" sheet or reference standards. A press sheet can be completely scanned in a few seconds. The SXY lets you switch quickly among the running jobs in a few keystrokes – no need to reinitiate the entire sequence. Point & Click Set-up is as easy as pointing your finger Just move the laser pointer on the scan head to the swatch to be measured and "click" the pushbutton, locking its position to memory. A vacuum hold-down ensures sheet flatness and stability. That's it. In seconds, the SXY is ready for operation, handling up to several hundred swatch positions per sheet. To read color bars, click on the start and end points. The SXY does the rest. The layout of repeating minibars or color block patterns scattered between labels and in packaging tucks may be stored in memory for rapid set-up. SXY scanning capability: Color bars Individual targets Repeating patterns, i.e. labels, folding boxes Real-Time Analysis Intuitive, interactive control helps keep your presses running The SXY simplifies total color control. Job setup is simplified by step-by-step instructions on screen that guide you through the operation. Choose from various display modes to review crucial print characteristics such as density, trap and dot gain. A high-resolution color display continuously shows the relative error of all selected points. Unique graphics make it easy for operators to detect areas that are out of tolerance.

Total Color Control
It's as important to you as it is to your customers. In today's competitive printing industry,increasing pressure to adopt reliable process control means objective color measurement. Now with the SXY Scanning Densitometer, color swatches can be measured ANYWHERE on the press sheet. Shorter makeready time gets you up to color fast with less waste and means a big improvement in daily production levels.

Fast, Accurate
Advanced 2-dimensional scanning in a few seconds
Densities are rapidly measured and recorded as the scanning head sweeps across the sheet, methodically evaluating your targeted points along both X and Y axes. The SXY measures absolute or relative density, dot grain, trap and contrast for comparison with your "OK" sheet or reference standards. A press sheet can be completely scanned in a few seconds.

The SXY lets you switch quickly among the running jobs in a few keystrokes – no need to reinitiate the entire sequence.

Point & Click
Set-up is as easy as pointing your finger
Just move the laser pointer on the scan head to the swatch to be measured and "click" the pushbutton, locking its position to memory. A vacuum hold-down ensures sheet flatness and stability. That's it. In seconds, the SXY is ready for operation, handling up to several hundred swatch positions per sheet.

To read color bars, click on the start and end points. The SXY does the rest. The layout of repeating minibars or color block patterns scattered between labels and in packaging tucks may be stored in memory for rapid set-up.

SXY scanning capability:

  • Color bars
  • Individual targets
  • Repeating patterns, i.e. labels, folding boxes
