iPQ-Spectral: Precise Color Control in the Running Printing Process


One of the greatest challenges when printing is the most precise color reproduction possible or the achievement of the desired color quality.

Spectral Inline Color Measurement

The iPQ-Spectral fully automated, spectral inline color measurement system supports you in maintaining prescribed color standards in that an inline measurement is carried out inside your printing machine. The typically necessary color measurements and the comparison with print samples with the help of hand-held devices after roll changes are therefore no longer necessary.

Completely automatic measurement...

...Significantly supports you when setting up the machine.

...Continuously monitors color data during the job.

...Objectively evaluates the color data and triggers warnings and alarms if prescribed tolerances are crossed.

...Records color deviations and generates a job report. 

iPQ-Spectral – Your Benefits:

  • Early detection and resolution of color deviations 
  • Documentation of color quality for your customers
  • Process optimization and avoidance of paper waste 
  • Reduction of paper waste in the set-up process 
  • Direct provision of color measurement values from the inline process for color management and quality assurance

iPQ-Spectral is in a close development partnership with X-Rite, the market leader for offline measurement systems, and therefore offers the highest data compatibility with X-Rite hand-held devices.
